Private training sessions offer more flexibility for both you and your dog because the training plans will be tailored to fit your individual needs. Private classes are appropriate for all dogs, including those who may not do well in a group setting or are fearful of strangers. We can work on anything including basic puppy skills, focusing on a single challenge such as leash walking, handling issues your dog may experience at the vet or groomer, more advanced obedience skills, and more!
If you are interested in a higher level group class, you have the option of enrolling in private sessions to fast-track your dog to that level. The amount of private sessions needed to qualify for the next level class will depend on how your dog responds to training. After your first 3 sessions, we will have a better idea of when your dog will be ready.
