Private Training

Good manners are always in fashion – bring out the best in your dog.

Our private training packages are for those dog/family teams that thrive on the convenience of lessons in their home. In addition, some situations (such as setting your puppy up for in home success prior to attending
puppy class, and resolving fear, aggression, and separation problems) are more effectively and appropriately addressed in private lessons rather than in a group class.

Private training can be done by itself or in combination with group classes or other services. After your initial free half hour in-home consultation, we offer individual lessons or specialized packages. Private lessons can be scheduled in your home or at one of our training facilities.

During your consult, our trainer(s) will be more than happy to discuss your options and help pick the right one for you and your dog. Please be aware that packages have a six month expiry from time of purchase. Appointments are available 5 days a week. Please review our cancellation / change policy.

Each lesson is one (1) hour. Please see below for details.

Please be sure to fill out our consult form. You can choose to pay for your session(s) in advance or at the time of your first appointment.

Please be sure set up your free half hour in-home consult using our scheduler or contact us.
