private in home dog training

Our private training sessions focus on the goals you set for your dog. Private lessons are conducted in your home, at our training center, virtually or in the location that affords successfully completing those goals.

Here are some of the goals we help dogs achieve:

  • Basic obedience commands

  • “Household manners”

  • Proper dog to dog interactions

  • Proper “people greeting”

  • Housebreaking Problems

  • Separation Anxiety

Our sessions also offer realistic solutions to many common behavioral problems.

Coaching Sessions

We work with you and your dog together to meet your training goals. Coaching sessions can be once weekly, or every two to three weeks, based on the client’s needs.

You will start with an Initial Consultation where we will discuss your specific goals and create a training plan to help you reach them. We can then offer follow up appointments to help you work towards those goals.

Initial Consultation

During this appointment, we will get to know you and your dog and assess your training goals. We will discuss our training process, answer your questions and formlate a training plan. In most cases, you will go home with homework as well. This appointment sets the groundwork for our Follow-Up Sessions.


Follow-Up Sessions

During your follow-up sessions, you and the trainer will work through your dog’s training plan. During each visit, we arrive and discuss how things have been going, we will answer your questions and continue building upon your dog’s skills. We offer appointments in different amounts of time. Your trainer will suggest the best length, based on the specific needs of you and your dog.
