Private Training Services
Phone and Zoom/Facetime Consultations:
We can meet online and help you with anything your dog needs to be successful with, in your home. We can work on basic training skills, or problem solving. Our phone and virtual consultations are $30 for 15 mins. We generally start out with one hour meetings for a consult, but quick questions can be 15-30 mins. Follow ups after a consult can be 15 mins to 60 mins depending on what we are working on.
Basic Training Lessons
Basic training private lessons are helpful if you have a schedule which does not allow you to get to group classes, if your dog is very distracted around other dogs or if you simply prefer one on one training with your own personal instructor. They can be at your home or in a "real life" situation such as a park.
Basic training may include:
Leash walking, sit, stay, down, go to your mat, recall, pay attention, meet and greet, leave it, drop it. Training will be tailored to your goals.
Strong leash pulling can be addressed with basic training but reactivity (barking and lunging at dogs and people) should be addressed with a behavior consult.
Please contact us if you are not sure: email@example.com
