    Private lessons are 60 minutes each. If your session runs over 60 minutes you will be billed at our regular hourly rate for any additional time.

  2. Your trainer will email you a registration link to fill out information about your pet and pay for your session.
  3. Your selected time and date will be secured after registration and payment is received.
  4. You will receive an email after your registration with more information about what to expect during your appointment.

 

 

 

During the session the trainer will meet and assess your pet and develop a plan to modify your pet's behavior. The number of training sessions for each pet will vary based on your goals. The pet owners compliance and consistency with treatment plans is the single most important factor in your pet's success.

For most issues, we will need to see you and your dog for an in-person consultation to determine the particular issues you are facing and what methods to implement to help you get the best results.

We will start with a 60 minute consultation. Additional consultations may be recommended based on your dog’s training requirements.

If your dog has been aggressive towards people or has bitten a person you must train your dog to wear a muzzle prior to meeting with our trainer.

Teach your dog to wear a muzzle.

"I'm absolutely in LOVE with Kitty (formerly Kaleigh). I know her name isn't original at all but I just started calling her that until I could think of a name and it just stuck - it's so her! I've attached two photos - she's seriously the most beautiful kitty in the world! She loves to steal tennis balls and bones from her dog sister - she thinks she's a dog! She enjoys going for walks and car rides, snuggling with mom, bird watching, drinking from the sink, playing with her pipe cleaners and getting into mom's makeup in the mornings. I couldn't 'imagine life without her. She's the absolute best!"
