Not every dog is suited for group lessons. Sometimes the stress of being around other dogs and people can be overbearing for the animal. In these cases we offer one-on-one lessons in the comfort of the owner's home or a nearby park. Private lessons are customizable to best suit the needs of each individual student.
Common cases where private lessons are more effective:
Shy/fearful dogs - Building up a dog's confidence in a private setting before entering a group class keeps the dog from becoming overstimulated
Dog reactive dogs - It is much easier to work with the dog and a demo dog instead of trying the group lessons
Toy possessive dogs - Much safer to work with away from other dogs
Owners with hectic schedules - private lessons don't mean an eight week commitment and can be scheduled at the owner's convenience
People looking for a tune-up with their dog - Just looking to work on stay or come? Then this is the best option
People looking to train in the comfort of their own home - Many people prefer to have a trainer come to them
The cost of private lessons is $64.00 per hour, with package discounts available. Prices do not include tax or any applicable mileage. In order to best serve you and your dog, we begin with a consultation to do introductions and discuss the training plan. The cost of the consult is $20 plus taxes and mileage.
