Private Lessons

I offer private dog training sessions by appointment. Private dog training sessions are done in the comfort of your home, or at a local park, Greenway, or other appropriate location.

Training your dog to become a great companion and a happy member of the family is a worthy investment in their future…and yours!  Professional Fees for private behavior modification and training in the home are $75 an hour. I do also charge a $10 trip fee for clients located more than 16 miles from my home, as determined by Google maps.

The total number of sessions needed will depend on your goals as well as the complexity of your dog’s situation. For most situations, I suggest 4 to 6 sessions. I do have package pricing to save you some money and to make the expense predictable – as a small business owner I know how important it is to figure things into a budget!

I do accept cash, checks, and cards and can offer flexibility in scheduling and payment.

Group Lessons

Family Dog Obedience Class

The Family Dog Manners Obedience Class focuses on teaching owners how to train their dogs using the most up-to-date applications of science and learning theory. The exercises taught are useful for a companion and family pet. The class uses positive methods to tap into your dog’s intelligence and eagerness to work for food, toys, social or environmental rewards. The Family Dog Manners Class initially focuses on calming your dog and building attention and impulse control. We then begin teaching behaviors that will make your dog a more polite and enjoyable family companion.
