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.

Rates:

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