Why Private Training?:

**Due to time constraints, I am only doing private training on a limited basis. Please contact me with your situation prior to filling out the form and/or paying via Paypal.**

There are many times when private training can be a better, more appropriate option for you and your dog:

  1. Your issues aren't addressed with a class: Classes have a set curriculum, so that means that what you really need help with might not be fully addressed (or addressed at all) in a class environment.
  2. Some dogs just don't do well in a class: Is your dog sensitive to sounds, commotion, new dogs, new people, etc? If a class is overly stressful for a dog, then learning doesn't happen very well. For some fearful, anxious, or shy dogs, a class can be overwhelming. Dogs that aren't comfortable (or might be potentially aggressive) with other dogs or people don't fit well either.
  3. Behavioral problems: If your dog has behavioral issues like fear, aggression, etc., a class won't address these needs, and your dog likely needs more intensive work.
  4. Classes don't fit your schedule: Classes have set times, and if that doesn't match your schedule, you'll miss out on a lot!

Private training allows you to work at your pacing and address your needs. You can ask as many questions as you need to!

Private Training Options:

We provide a few of options for private training to best provide you with what you need:

pawprint 3 Hours of Training Package: This is our most popular choice! 3 hours of training time (in one or more visits) scheduled at your home. Our trainer will help show you how to work with your dog and answer all questions along the way. $185

pawprint Hourly Rate: For those individuals that want to work on an hourly basis, we also offer this as an option. Our trainer will work with you at your home at the rate of $70/hour.

We can also assist with specialized needs like preparation for AKC CGC testing (although I am no longer an evaluator), service dog training (for mobility assistance), and competitive sport training.

pawprint One-on-One Phone & Email Training Package: If you're long distance, prefer a less expensive option, or just want some assistance, the one-on-one phone & email training package is the way to go. Through this package, you will receive 2 phone consultations and up to 10 emails. Trainer will provide you with assistance to fit your training needs. $50.

All private training begins with a questionnaire. To speed up the process, we offer this form on our website. Fill out and submit via an e-mail:
