Private Training Lessons


Private training with our Certified Professional Dog Trainers is a great way to address your specific training goals. We begin with an Initial Consultation in which you’ll sit down with a trainer either at your home, or here on-site in our Training & Wellness Center to discuss your dog’s history, your household set up, behavior issues, and training goals. After you chat with a trainer, you’ll do some training exercises and work your pup together. Once your consultation is completed, your trainer will email follow up and support which may include homework, training exercises, household management suggestions, and future training recommendations. You can use this information to work at home on your own, or as a guide to setting up more training lessons, group classes, or day training. Private lesson packages give you a strong foundation of assisted training at a discounted rate.

Private consultations are customized and may include:

  • Learning Theory and Behavioral Science

  • Benefits of Training with Positive Reinforcement

  • Disadvantages and Side Effects of Training with Aversive or “Balanced” Methods and Tools (anything that uses fear, pain, choking, prongs, intimidation, shock, or physical force to influence behavior)

  • How to Build Attention, Focus, and Impulse Control

  • How to Set Up Foundation Skills

  • Creating a “Tool Box” of Useful Behaviors

  • Environmental Management

  • Mental Enrichment and Sensory Stimulation

  • Diet and Exercise

  • How to Reinforce Positive Behavior

  • How to Eliminate Undesirable Behavior
