Private Dog Training

dog trainingPrivate dog training is highly personalized and tailored to exactly what you want your dog to learn.  It works great for busy dog owners who appreciate convenient, focused attention.  Our focus is teaching you how to get the most from your dog using up to date, humane, and effective methods.  We follow LIMA (Least Intrusive, Minimally Aversive) and the Humane Hierarchy guidelines as we work to train needed behaviors or solve common behavior problems.

Our private training begins with an initial consultation with you and your dog at our training center.  This appointment gives the trainer a chance to evaluate your dog’s behavior, and develop a training plan.  The cost for this consultation is $120.  Additional training is $75/hr.  Discount packages are available for pre-scheduled multi-session plans.
