Solutions Designed to Fit your Lifestyle

I TRAIN YOUR DOG

If you lead a busy life and do not have the time necessary to train your dog, I can do it for you. I will travel to your home 3-5 times per week to work your dog. This training will consist of the standard obedience commands required for the AKC Novice obedience level (sit, down, here/come, heel, place) as well as walking nicely on and off leash in a variety of settings and environments. I prefer to schedule these lessons consecutively, approximately 3-5 sessions per week, in order to allow each lesson to build upon the previous session without too much time taking place in between. This program will set your dog on the fast track to success. Once the training is complete, I will design the final session to teach you how to maintain the training that was done so you can move forward enjoying your dog. This option is available in 5, 10, and 15 session packages. Your dog must be at least 16 weeks old to start this program.

If your dog is not yet 16 weeks old, please see the Private Puppy Training option below.

Common problem areas I will address with your dog during the training: 

Jumping on People / Things

Barking Related to Door / Doorbell

Low Confidence and Fear Issues

Leash Pulling

Rough Play with Other Dogs

Whining

Climbing on Furniture

Stealing Food

Garbage Can Issues

Destructive Chewing

Kennel and Confinement Issues / Separation Anxiety

Housebreaking

Submissive and Excitable Urination

Urine & Feces Marking

Mounting People / Things

This training can be done inside of your home, outside of your home, or in public places that pose a challenge for your dog, such as the park, outdoor shopping centers, restaurants (that allow dogs) etc.. These training sessions allow me the opportunity to correct problematic behaviors while giving you a break, reducing stress for you, your family and your dog. 

I also offer private, one time consultations designed to address singular issues that do not require formal obedience to correct. If your dog already has a solid foundation but you need help correcting one or two minor issues, this option may be all that is need to get your dog back on track.

WE TRAIN YOUR DOG TOGETHER

This option is best for those who want to be involved in their dog's training. Essentially, you are your dog's trainer and I am your coach and teacher. With this comes a lot of responsibility, as you MUST be willing to dedicate the time and patience needed to train your dog. You MUST do the work or your dog's behavior will not change.

These private lessons will take place in your home and/or out in public locations. We will teach standard obedience commands required for the AKC Novice obedience level (sit, down, here/come, heel, place) as well as walking nicely on land off leash in a variety of settings/environments. 

I prefer to schedule these lessons 3 to 5 days apart, giving you time to work on the concepts taught during the previous lesson. This option is offered in a 5, 10, or 15 session package, depending on how far you would like to take your dog's training. 

Your dog must be at least 16 weeks old to start this program. If your dog is not yet 16 weeks old, please see the Private Puppy Training option below.
