1. In-Home Lessons (For dogs 16 weeks and older)
3 In-home lessons $400
4 In-home lessons $500 *
All in-home lessons are one on one training courses that take place at your home or a location near you.
These lessons are tailored to address what you would like to take place or the most pressing problems you may be having with your dog. (More serious issues may require a different type of training).
These lessons will address:
Jumping Pulling on leash
Bolting out doors
Place / Go to bed Sit / Down
*Remote e-collar training is available for dogs over 6 months old pending training development.
2) 1 Lesson Crash Course
2-1/2 hours $275
This lesson is for those who need to get a handle on things right away. It’s a lot of help in a short amount of time.
In this lesson, you will learn how to problem solve the most common issues. I am training you to lead your dog with trust and respect. We will build a three-fold foundation to establish healthy leadership that helps to give you verbal control with your dog.
Out: Training your dog to “out” from you, a situation or other people. This is one of the most important and useful things and all of dog training.
Stay: This is duration work and is done with distractions for extended periods of time. We start at 30 minutes with the down position. Duration work is absolutely necessary to teach your dog how to relax.
Heel: No pulling on the leash, marketing, or sniffing. Your dog should be slightly behind you and it's your presence that holds them, not the leash. Walking on a heel is an exercise in leadership. Plus a whole lot more enjoyable.
3) In Home Puppy Program
2 lessons $250
This training is for pups under 16 weeks of age.
With younger pups (8-10 weeks), we start with a puppy aptitude test to find out the temperament of your pup. We test for social dominance, touch, sound, sight sensitivity and more. This helps us find out a little more about who they are and how best to move forward with the training.
In these lessons you will learn how to address some of the basic puppy problems:
Housebreaking / Crate training
Play biting / Chewing
Crying through the night
We will teach your pup how to sit, lay down and go to their crate, but we are not going to expect too much too soon. This age is a time for bonding more than teaching obedience. At the same time, it is still important to set clear boundaries (no teeth on skin, no bathroom in the house, etc...), and to hold them accountable to those boundaries. It is also important to correct behavioral issues that might arise so that they don’t develop into more serious problems as they get older.
Any additional home lessons are $125 for 75 Minutes or $225 for 2-1/2 hours.
4) Board and training
One week: $1500
Two weeks $2500
Three weeks $3500
Board and training is highly recommended for those who are unable to work with their dogs on a daily basis due to time or physical restraints.
Included with the training are two 75 minute in-home lessons after the completion of the board and training program, plus regular instructional videos throughout your dogs training process so that you can see how your dog is doing and how things are done.
For the extent of the training your dog will live with me as if they were my dog in my home. This will include trips to stores, coffee shops or outdoor restaurants.
This is a thorough training program and depending on the length can include:
Proper interaction with people and other dogs
Sit / down / stay (with distractions and long distances)
Walking on heel
Place (go to bed)
Perimeter training (at the doors as well as the car)
Recall (outdoor at distance)
Long distance obedience
E-collar and off leash training
* (prong collar and e-collar are not included, but available to purchase)
Boarding is only available for dogs who are crate trained and have previously been trained with me. Availability is based on my calendar.
Boarding includes a daily walk and maintenance of any rules and training that your dog already has in place. All dogs are with me in my home and sleep in an individual crate, inside my house.
