One, 2 hour in home session to meet your family and pet. We will discuss any concerns or training questions you have. Anything from first time dog owner to complex problems you are having with your pet. This first consultation is in home only. I then put together a program to help you be the best owner for your dog and your dog be the best dog for you! The last 1/2 of the session is hands on training with your dog. You will experience a deep understanding of how dogs learn and think.
A 90 minute follow up session to discuss any problems or concerns you and your dog are having with the training. Typically the consultation will be scheduled at least 1 week after the meet and greet consultation. The second half of this session will include adding distractions to the training. The behaviors will include recall, walking on a loose leash, basic obedience commands, leave it, drop it and any problems such as chewing, barking, reaction to others,etc. The training is hands on.
After your dog is reliable with the behaviors and commands, we will go out to parks, big box stores & pet stores. This is when you will learn how well your dog is doing around other dogs, children, novel noises and situations. After this session you will know what to do if your dog gets too distracted, fearful or excited out in public. You will have the tools necessary to enable you and your dog to travel and visit dog friendly places, friends houses, play dates with other dogs and parks.
For those who have a dog that has problems with reactive behavior around other dogs, are fearful, territorial or protective. Other problems such as jumping up, pulling on the leash, fear of riding in cars, housebreaking, chewing, digging, fence fighting, etc. will be addressed. Dogs should have a knowledge of basic commands, such as sit, come, stay and down in the home. Often dogs are trained without adding distractions and when taken out it all falls apart. I can help you and your dog!
Different from the Meet & Greet Consultation, this lesson is for pet parents that are experienced and in general have a well behaved dog. We will address specific situations that need a professional and new set of tools and eyes to help remedy them. Every dog is different and many people have never had difficulties with their dogs but now do. The session is for 90 minutes in your home or out in the neighborhood, wherever the problems are occurring.
1 hour, includes welcome box with toys, treats, leash and training hand outs
You couldn't wait to get your puppy and now that he is home you need help with housebreaking, crate training, nipping, chewing & separation problems . I will come to your house for 60-90 minutes and teach you how dogs learn and communicate, what puppies need to set them up for the future and how to avoid making mistakes that will cause problems now. We will address specific topics that you need help with now, health and nutrition, proper toys and training equipment.
We are all so busy these days with work and family. The day training/boot camp program is designed with you in mind. If you have problems with your dog that you need resolved, just need your dog to be socialized or need her to learn manners there are several different options available. This program is personalized and created around your lifestyle and needs. I pick up your dog and work with him and return him at the end of each session.
At our initial 1 hour consultation, I assess your dog as we discuss your goals. Then we schedule our following 3 sessions. Whether your dog's training needs to be taught in your home or outside for problem solving and socialization, I will come and work with her for 2 hours for the first 2 days, on the third day I meet with you and your dog to teach you, the pet parent what your dog has learned. You will begin establishing a reinforcement history for your dog on all behaviors. This session is 1
This program, while equally as intense is split up in 5 days. The first day is our 1 hour meet and greet to discuss what your dog needs and you desire for him to become the best dog ever! The following 3 days are for 90 minute sessions in your home, backyard or the community. Any problems, or basic commands will be taken care of. On the 5th day I will meet with you, the family as we work together on all tasks and skills your dog has learned.

Our first meeting is a no charge 30 minute phone consultation. We will discuss your lifestyle, your dog's history and any issues you want to work on. These can be anything from just basic manners to socialization problems. We will schedule the inception of your program. Each training session is for 90 minutes. Typically the first sessions occurs in your home as I observe your dog's behaviors and explain what is going on with her and your relationship. The subsequent sessions are all hands on.
