Positive Private In-Home Training for you and your dog.

Full Private In-Home Training

My training consists of positive in-home dog obedience training. Each session lasts about 1 hour, sometimes a bit longer. I have a program for dogs of all ages that involves five sessions. These cover puppy training, attention seeking behaviors (jumping, barking, nipping, etc.), potty training, enrichment, sit/stay, down/stay, watch me, leave it, drop it, place, door greet, walking, and recall. At the conclusion of all five sessions, your dog will receive a certificate of obedience! The training is advance "at your own pace" method. For most dogs, it is generally 1-2 weeks in between each session, but this can fluctuate

I also work with aggression issues, but the dog must have an evaluation by me before starting training. The evaluation will include my assessment of the dog and coming up with a training plan for both the dog and the family.

Individual Sessions

I offer individual sessions for people who are only interested in one or two trainings instead of the series of five. My individual trainings cover a multitude of issues that may concern you about your dog's behavior. These sessions are tailored to each individual situation and may require more than one session to fix the adverse behavior.

Puppys 101

For dogs 6-16 weeks old, we have a special puppy lesson. We go over potty training, communication, mental stimulation, and exercise. We like to be able to set you and your puppy up for success for their lifetime and that is best started in that 6-16 week range.  

Behavior Modification

Is your dog normally well behaved but just started having a strange issue? We are here to help! Ranging from Potty training, barking, jumping, nipping, food aggression and possession aggression we have helped people and dogs get to the bottom of their issues and made for a more pleasant pet and pet parent experience. These sessions are usually every couple weeks as its harder to break habits!
