More Information


Private In-Home Dog Training

We will come to your home (or location of your choosing) for a private 1.5 hour initial lesson to meet you, evaluate and train your dog. 


Our Initial Training Session is intended as a working session. First, we evaluate and review you and your dog's needs and objectives. Prior to the first session, we ask the owner to make out a list of areas they want to work on, be evaluated, or be fixed. This includes behavior, nutrition, health and house manners. Our responsibility will be to educate and demonstrate appropriate ways to handle your current problems, along with circumventing potential troubles.

Whether you have a puppy with puppy behaviors, or an adult dog with specific behavior problems you want addressed and fixed, we go over the must-have behaviors for a well-mannered companion dog. We anticipate that dogs and owners will be at different levels of training and have different behavior issues. It's not just the dog who learns—it is you and your whole family.

 No minimum number of lessons are required. We work at your needs.

The dog's or puppy's age is usually 4 months or older.
