Private Training Services

Perhaps your dog needs more personal instruction than he might get in a group class, perhaps your schedule interferes with group class attendance, or maybe, your dog is not a suitable candidate for group class due to reactivity issues toward other people or dogs.  Regardless, we have a variety of services which will be tailored to meet you and your dog’s needs. Private training services include customized training protocols and handouts, developed specifically for you and your dog.

Dogs with behavior problems or training challenges (including separation anxiety, reactivity, aggression, predatory behavior, problem-solving for problems like chewing, house soiling, excessive barking, door bolting, counter surfing, etc.).

PARTY NANNY

Available for established clients with dogs that have solid foundation skills.  If you like to entertain, but want someone else to focus on teaching good manners so you can give your full attention to your guests, our party nanny service is right for you!  This service generally books well in advance, so please schedule early to reserve your spot in the calendar.

HOME SCHOOL

Ideal for:  dogs that need improved manners (leash walking, stay, recall, focus, door greetings, etc.), dogs that need increased mental stimulation and/or exercise, puppies, dogs that have more energy than their people, and very busy dog owners!

Does your busy schedule make it difficult to find the time to train your dog?  Would you like someone else to work on building your dog’s foundation skills while you work, play, or grocery shop?

Home school sessions are offered at your home while our trainer gives your dog one-on-one training attention geared toward meeting your training needs.  This service is available for dogs that need manners improvement, but is generally not recommended for dogs with severe behavior problems.  Prices for 45 minute sessions are available for as low as $50/visit depending on the package purchased.

  • Up to 15 round trip travel miles*
