We will be welcoming a new family member in September 2020! I will be taking maternity leave starting at the end of August and will be returning in January 2021.

While I am on leave I will not be available for pet sitting, dog walking, consultations, private sessions, or teaching any group classes. I will be checking emails, but I may be delayed in responding during this time.

If you would like to be notified when I am opening up for scheduling, please fill out the contact form and I will add you to my contact list.

Thank you for your patience while we welcome our little bundle of joy! I look forward to working with everyone upon my return.

Behavior Consultations and Private Training Lessons

Behavior issues often require more personalized and specific information than can be provided in a group class. With Private Lessons, we'll focus on exactly what is important to YOU!

Possible topics include:

  • loose leash walking
  • coming when called
  • polite greetings
  • housetraining
  • self-control/impulse control exercises
  • confidence building games (shy or fearful behavior)
  • separation anxiety
  • aggression (towards dogs or people)

Build a SOLID foundation for your relationship with your dog!

Sessions will be tailored to address the specific training issues YOU identify. Appointments can be made for mornings, afternoons, or evenings and are generally available 7 days per week.


Initial Visit (lasts 1.5 hours) - $100
Follow-up Sessions (last 1 hour) - $75


Group Classes

The next set of Group classes will be posted in November 2020 and begin in January 2021. Please check back for the schedule or email ekmtopp@gmail.com to get notified when the schedule is posted for January.
