Private Lessons

Our private dog training programs specialize in behavior modification, problem solving, and positive guidance for dogs of all ages.  We are also happy to assist with introducing a new puppy into your home, general puppy training and obedience training for good manners.


We help you train your dog with one-on-one guidance by using science based, positive reinforcement training methods that involve force free and fear free techniques for your pup.

Our private training packages are for those dog/family teams that thrive on the convenience of lessons in their home environment.

Because each dog is different, we take care to approach each private dog training session based on your dog’s temperament and what will work best for him and YOU. We begin each private session by taking a full behavioral history, evaluating the dog’s behavior and then create an appropriate training plan to cover the needs and expectations of the dog and human.
