Dog Training

Initial Consultation/Behavior Evaluation:

Available: Monday-Saturday (during day and evening times)

Location: At your home, or other pre-agreed upon place (for example, a dog park).

Cost: $150 for 1 to 1.5 hours

Includes: A behavior assessment, going over the basics of how dogs learn, how the training process works, and beginning to train new behaviors right away. This also includes a follow-up plan for each individual dog, training plans and notes, as well as additional help by phone and email during our time working together.

After the initial consultation/behavior evaluation, training can proceed with one of the following programs below as needed.

Follow-Up Training Lessons

Available: Monday-Saturday (during day and evening times)

Location: At your home, or other pre-agreed upon place.

Cost: $100 for 1 hour training session

Includes: Continuation of training for your dog’s individual needs and goals.

Day Training:

Available: Monday – Friday (during day times)

Location: At your home, and walks through your neighborhood as needed.

Cost: $3000 for 3 weeks of training (including 1-2 hour sessions per day, depending on each individual dog’s needs).

Includes: A program similar to board-and-train, but without boarding, allowing your dog to remain in the comfort of his own home and learn directly in his regular habitat.

In addition, we provide a clicker, dog body language book, training plans and notes, and private training sessions to make sure you can get your dog to perform the new behaviors.

We start with an initial consultation/behavior evaluation, where we meet and can make sure your dog is the right fit for the program (see above).

We can customize a program for your individual dog with training for core obedience/foundation behaviors, tricks, reactivity on-leash, solving behavior problems, cooperative care training, walks, games/puzzle toys, and more.
