Private Training Lessons are available for anything you might need help with: puppy biting, potty training, aggression, fear, anxiety, reactivity, sibling rivalry, counter surfing, resource guarding, etc.
Lessons can be customized to your specific behavior goals.
Lessons can be done in-person or on Zoom.
Not all issues can be addressed in a Zoom consult, but many can. There is generally a one to two week wait for a Zoom Consult. This is a great choice for puppy mouthing and potty training issues that often can't wait. Zoom consults are an hour long.
In-person sessions can take place at your home, at my facility or on location around town. If we meet at your home, the lesson will most likely be held outside. Face masks are required to meet indoors at my facility or in your home.
If you live very far from the facility, there will be an additional fee for travel.
Private lessons can be purchased individually. I generally suggest 3 sessions scheduled every other week as a good starting point, but many people will choose to schedule a single session. Each session is 1 hour long.
A 50% deposit is required to hold an in-person private lesson. The deposit is refundable/ transferable with 6 business day's notice. The balance plus any travel is due when the lesson concludes. If we are scheduled to meet outside and there is bad weather, we will default to meeting at the facility if there is not ample space inside your home for our practice.
There is frequently a 2 - 3 week wait for in-person private lessons. Occasionally a cancellation will cause something to open up sooner.
Small group private classes are also available. I can bring the classroom to your group at any location, or your group can come to the facility. This is a great option for families who want to train their puppies together or for friends who share a common goal like Therapy Dog Certification. Up to four dogs can share a private class.

All training is done using Force-Free training methods. This means we use treats and a clicker but not prong, shock, chain, or correction collars. I use the science of how dogs learn for teaching everything from basic puppy manners to modifying aggression. When you book your appointment, you can rest assured that you are working with a trainer who has multiple professional certifications, has over 10 years of experience and is trusted with referrals from many of our local veterinarians, including a certified Veterinary Behaviorist. Not only do many local veterinarians recomend my services, they bring their own dogs to me for training.
