Adult Dog Training Programs

private lessons

$650

Six session, customized private lesson programs are available for past and current clients who would like to work on skills that fall outside of our group class curriculum in addition to obedience, prefer individualized attention, or who require more flexible scheduling. They are a good choice for new clients who need assistance with addressing behavioral concerns that impede their ability to safely and comfortably participate in group classes. Private lessons are the required starting point for dogs who exhibit human aggression.

All private session programs include obedience as the foundation of all other training we offer, including problem solving and socialization. We guarantee results (free enrollment in the group class if you need more help to pass the graduation exam). Turning in homework assignments in a timely fashion is required. Additional private sessions may be scheduled a la carte.

Group Class

This six week class is suitable for motivated dog owners who are interested in teaching their dog how to be easy to live with, and who would like to offer their dogs the gift of freedom that only a well trained dog can experience!

Required equipment is included in the course fee. We guarantee results (free re-enrollment in the group class if you need more help to pass the graduation exam). Turning in homework assignments in a timely fashion is required.

In Home Consultation

$350

Our 2 - 3 hour initial consultation provides owners with important fundamental information about dog behavior and learning, the role that your behavior and the environment play in your dog's behavior, and appropriate application of science based training principles. We let you in on the secrets that cause most dog training programs (and most dog trainers!) to be ineffective. And finally, we show you how to apply all of the information to your dog and the problems you are experiencing. We show you that it works, in real time. Utilizing this information we are able to help dog owners create solutions to resolve all manner of behavioral concerns, often in a single session. Your consistent use of this information is key to your success.
