Private Lessons

Private obedience lessons are available in the convenience of your own home.  Many people prefer private lessons for the following reasons:

  • You select the day and time that works best for your family's schedule.
  • Everyone in the family can participate in the training process.
  • All dogs in the home are included in the training.
  • Home specific issues can be addressed where they occur - chasing the cat, leaving the yard, jumping on doors, etc.
  • The training lessons are specifically customized to your needs and goals.

Private Lesson Selection

Obedience Lessons – These lessons are for dog/people friendly dogs who need basic obedience training and simple problem solving training for housetraining, excessive barking, jumping on guests, charging the door, etc. 

Behavioral Programs – These lessons are for dogs who have behaved fearfully or aggressively towards dogs/people, guard food/objects/space, and those who may be suffering from separation anxiety.  Behavioral Programs provide lesson notes and consultation with your veterinarian or Certified Veterinary Behaviorist if necessary.
