Individual lessons may be used for any training issue (obedience, bad habits, aggressive or fearful behavior, etc.) Training sessions will vary based on the needs of your particular dog, however you can expect to receive:

  • A walk (which serves to establish a baseline for your dog's personality and reinforce good habits)

  • Obedience and behavior training, based on you and your dog's needs

  • Reinforcement of beneficial behavior patterns and reduction of unwanted behaviors

  • Demonstrations of safe and effective dog handling and equipment use

  • A lesson plan for reinforcing new skills and diminishing bad habits

  • An analysis of your dog's behavior, overall temperament, and my training strategy based on what you want to accomplish

Equipment prices are not included in the lesson price.

Puppy Package - $440

If you’ve just brought home a puppy, now is the time to start training to prevent more difficult issues when you have an adult dog. In the first of four lessons (which must occur before the pup reaches 16 weeks of age), you’ll get an hour to learn about:

  • Introducing the puppy collar and leash

  • Crate training

  • Housebreaking

  • How to correct biting

  • Confidence-building

  • And more!

Housebreaking is the most critical and most stressful part of puppy training. For this reason, lessons two and three will be scheduled two and four weeks after lesson one. This will give us the opportunity to review your puppy’s success with the housebreaking process, and make adjustments as needed. We will also follow up on your pup’s general behavior and work to minimize any troublesome habits that may be developing.

In your fourth lesson (once your puppy is 6 months old), your puppy will learn how to walk on a loose-leash without pulling, and you will receive guidance on how to attain any obedience commands that your puppy hasn’t mastered yet (sit, down, stay, come). At this time your puppy will be fitted for an adult training collar or slip leash.

Before the first lesson: Please purchase a crate that will fit your dog when fully grown, with a divider to confine your pup until it is bigger.

Equipment and sales tax are included in the package price.

Off-Leash Basics Package - $550 (dogs under 80 lbs.), $600 (dogs 80 lbs. and up)

Do you want to be able to walk your dog off-leash at the park, beach, or in the woods? For dog owners who want to have true off-leash control, this three-lesson program will introduce your dog to long-line and e-collar work. By the end of these lessons you will be able to trust your dog to come when called regardless of distractions, and maintain a safe distance around you when allowed freedom to roam. Each of the three lessons will run for an hour.

If you wish to put additional dogs through this training program, it will require additional lessons and equipment. Contact me for more information.

Off-leash basics is not suitable for dogs that have shown aggression toward humans or other dogs. Equipment and sales tax are included in the package price.
