Private sessions are focused on you, your dog, and your specific training needs!
Private sessions are especially good for training issues at home -- house training, barking, family interactions/involvement, crate training, separation anxiety, door dashing, coming when called, and more.
Private sessions are recommended for reactive and aggressive dogs, dogs who guard objects like their food bowl and toys, and for dogs who are shy and/or fearful.
(Bite situations and court cases are always private sessions.)
The first training session is typically done at our training center, with subsequent sessions (if needed/wanted) at the training center, in your home (travel fees apply), and/or at various, suitable locations (travel fees apply). In a private session we will talk about your goals for your dog, appropriate equipment and its humane and effective use, diet, activities, and address specific issues. All private sessions/packages include lifetime (of the dog) support via phone, text, or email.
Initial assessment/consultation/training session -- $125, additional sessions may be at a reduced price.
Other sessions available -- assessment only, consulting only, etc.
Packages are available and are set up according to your needs/budget. Packages have expiration dates and there are no refunds on packages after the first session. contact us for more information.
All private sessions are confirmed via email (unless special circumstances apply). Please be sure we have a correct email that you check regularly.
