Private Lessons

Scheduled at flexible times, these lessons focus on what is important to you and your dog. The trainer will work with you and  your dog while coaching you and your family through the process.  Based on your personal objectives, topics can include socialization, basic obedience, house manners, and solutions to common behavior problems such as unruliness in your home, destructive behavior, jumping on guests, barking at the door and more.

Training can take place either in your home or at field locations to set up realistic distractions.
