Private Lessons: This is where the trainer comes to your home. The 4 week program is customized to your individual needs. Lessons run 60-90 min and are designed to cover not only the basics, but to addresses problem behaviors as well. Each 4 week program targets your individual goals for your dog(s). These are ideal for dogs that lack the confidence or social skills to be in a group class or for owners that desire that one on one attention. Great for multi dog households and families too. Handouts for each lesson included. Lessons can be added as needed.

Behavior Modification Consult: This is best if you are dealing with specific behavior issues (fear/reactive/guarding/aggression/anxiety or other behavior issues). This 90 min consult is about finding out the 'why' so we can then come up with a training plan and what it would take to implement that. Best done in person at your home, however phone/skype can also be done. $95 in person*** $60 phone/skype
Single lesson: This is an individual lesson to target a specific behavior. Ideal for issues like house training or jumping where a single behavior is all you need assistance with. Lessons are taught in home or at varied locations as necessary (vet office/park/work place).
