We believe private training is the fastest and most effective form of dog training available. Working one-on-one, we will teach you how to instill great manners in your dog and teach useful skills. We are also able to address problem behaviors, such as jumping on guests, house breaking, separation anxiety, chewing, destruction, excessive barking and much more—sometimes in as little as one session!
In almost all situations, we start with an in-home session. At this session, we begin by reviewing your dog’s history as well as discussing the goals that you have for your dog. We will also observe how you are currently working with your dog so that we can effectively formulate a training plan. We then begin demonstrating training exercises and coaching you on how to practice them. You will also receive step by step instruction on how to continue to advance these exercises during your time between appointments. Written handouts and lesson plans are also included to support your training. This first session is 1.5-2 hours long, and the cost is $215.
Follow up sessions vary greatly depending on what your goals are for your dog. These sessions can be at your home or on location, depending on what we are working on. Frequency of sessions may also vary. In some cases, we work with people weekly, and with others, it can be as little as once every 6 weeks. Most commonly, we see people every other week. This allows for plenty of time for you to practice the training exercises that have been taught and be ready to move on to new things. Follow up sessions are typically 60-75 minutes in length, and the cost is $135.
