In-Home Private Dog Training

In-home private dog training is provided within the comfort of your own home. You’ll receive four sessions that each last approximately one hour. Training is tailored to you, and your dog’s specific needs. We use only the most modern science-based training methods, and equipment without ever using any type of old-school methods of punishment that induce fear, and/or pain. #TrainWithoutPain is our motto!

Puppy Socials last approx. 45 mins and are designed for puppies 8 weeks – 5 months who are up to date on required vaccinations from a licensed veterinarian. This is good puppy play and socialization time, and for your puppy to burn off some excess energy! Puppy Social is $15/puppy. Enroll Here!

Aggression/Anxiety Rehabilitation: Private training only. Aggression/Anxiety rehabilitation lessons are for dogs who do not feel comfortable in a variety of situations. When rehabilitating dogs we focus on making sure the dog is comfortable, and moving at her own pace. NO physical punishment is allowed, for those tactics only increase aggressive, and/or anxious behavior. Enroll Here!
