Individual Coaching: I work with you in your home or where the  issues require, to meet your dog training goals with long term results as the objective.

Fee: $75 per one hour session (consultation or training)

  • Basic manners : sit/down/stay/recall/go-to-bed/off/up/leave-it/give etc.

  • House training and marking
  • Jumping on people
  • Leash reactivity (lunging/barking)
  • Puppies: socialization and problem prevention
  • Resource guarding

Day Training: The solution for busy individuals and families.

I can train your dog when you are at work, in order to meet your goals while built-in transfer sessions give you the tools you need to live successfully with your dog.

You don't need to spend your time learning how to install new behaviors or executing a complex training plan.  That's my job.

You have more time to enjoy your dog. Think of it as school for your dog; you can be the "parent" instead of the "teacher."

  • Basic manners: sit/down/stay/recall/go-to-bed/off/up/leave it/give etc.

An initial assessment session will determine which of these programs is suitable for you and your dog and may include training advice and/or referral to other services. Fee $75 per one hour consultation.

Group Classes: Puppy Socialization and Essentials: preventing future problems through early guidance. I have small classes and carefully monitor off-leash play so puppies can acquire  manners as well as social skills around unfamiliar people and  puppies to help them grow into well-adjusted companions who are a joy to live with.
