Private Lessons

This option is great for dogs in need of some basic manners, or owners who want better communication skills with their pups. I will come to your home and over the course of an hour to and hour and a half demonstrate how to solve basic problems, as well as teach new skills and commands.

If you want to continue training even further we can do a series of sessions where we can advance upon learned behaviors and work on learning new complex skills as well. This would be things like long-distance and sustained stays, proofing the recall, and building off-leash skills.

Pricing:

Single Session will cover basic problems such as jumping up, rushing out the door, go-to your kennel, sit, and the beginnings of stay, come and down. 

  • $60 for an hour of instruction. I will work with your dog and demonstrate how to teach new behaviors/discourage unwanted ones. Then observe and assist you in how to employ these skills yourself.

Set of Three Sessions will cover basic problems as well as more severe ones such as separation anxiety, destructive behaviors, and housebreaking. Stay, down, go to your bed, recall, and polite leash walking will be learned.

  • $175 for three 60-90 minute sessions. Over the course of the sessions we will cover what your goals are and how to achieve them. First session will mainly cover your questions, and exercises that will help you achieve your training goals. Subsequent sessions will build upon practiced behaviors, as well as troubleshoot remaining problems.

Set of Five Sessions will cover all the basics, sit, down, stay, come, kennel, heel, and go to your bed. We can also work on more serious problems such as fear/aggression towards guests, leash reactivity, resource guarding, and fighting between animals in the home. For dogs with minor issues we can use extra sessions to work on things such as off-leash skills, advanced obedience, and tricks.

  • $285 for five 60-90 minute sessions. Over the course of the sessions we will cover what your goals are and how to achieve them. First session will mainly cover your questions, and exercises that will help you achieve your training goals. Subsequent sessions will build upon practiced behaviors, as well as troubleshoot remaining problems.
If necessary training tools may be an additional cost. For example harnesses, head halters, training collars, treat pouches, long lines and muzzles can range from $10-30. E-collar costs around $150 depending on kind needed.

All sessions include follow-up email/phone-call, as well as write-up summarizing what was covered in session and homework!
