Private Training

You and your dog will enjoy individual training with one of our professional trainers. Each session is scheduled by appointment at your convenience, usually once or twice per week. This program is individually tailored to your dog's personality and to your unique situation and preferences. It is very flexible and the training techniques will vary widely. The sessions are approximately forty minutes long; however, it is not uncommon for a dog's attention span to wane before the entire time is up. Our goal with private training is to get a first command response on a loose leash under any level of distraction. We also want to solve ALL behavioral problems and teach your dog good manners. By the time you are done with private training, you will be able to take your dog anywhere and be proud of his or her behavior.
