Although we enjoy teaching group classes, our love and specialty is working on behavior consultations and private training in a one-on-one setting. Our training and behavior modification philosophy includes positive, reward-based training methods that are fun and effective for both you and your dog. We adhere to the practice of using science-backed, humane methods when working to change any behavior and only use tools and practices that are dog-friendly and safe, meaning we will never use fear, force, pain, alpha rolls, choke, prong, or shock collars to train you and your dog. You will find as many training styles as you will trainers so before you hire someone to work with you and your dog, please do your research.
Private training not only allows us to work around your busy schedule, but it provides you with options for every family and skill level, where we can make a plan specific to your dog and your needs. This option is for those looking for help with every day skills like leash walking and recall, or need help problem solving things like jumping, counter-surfing, play biting, etc. We currently offer private training both in person and online. Cost is $85 for a one hour session that includes full notes on how to implement strategies discussed and a plan for further training. Travel to your home is possible, potentially with an additional cost.

We currently offer behavior consultations both in person and online. Cost is $125 for a 60-90 session that includes full notes on how to implement strategies discussed and a plan for further training.
