Private Lessons

One-on-one lessons with one of our trainers helping you with your specific training and behavior needs.

Private training is the best option if:

  • You need flexibility in scheduling
  • Your dog needs help with seeing other dogs or people
  • You want to work on a specific behavior we don’t cover in group class

If you are a new client, an initial session is scheduled first, then you have the option to purchase single sessions or invest in lesson packages.

Day Training – Our “Board and Train” Alternative!

Have you considered sending your dog away to be trained?

Do you feel uncomfortable with that concept?

Day Training is a wonderful alternative to a board and train program where your dog has to be away from you for an extended amount of time. Our Day Training service involves a trainer coming to you multiple times a week, over 3 weeks, and working with your dog in the comfort of their own home. At the end of the 3 weeks you and the trainer will meet to have a skills transfer session where they will go over what was taught during the program, how to maintain the behaviors, and changes that you may need to make in your home.

Each session with your dog is 45-60 minutes and we do not require you to be present during the training, only for the skill transfer session.

Initial Session (In-Home): $165

7 Session Package (2 45-60 minute sessions + 1 skill transfer session at the end of the 3 weeks): $980
10 Session Package (3 45-60 minute sessions + 1 skill transfer session at the end of the 3 weeks): $1400
13 Session Package (4 45-60 minute sessions + 1 skill transfer session at the end of 3 weeks): $1820
