Dog Training

Private Lessons


Basic Obedience Boarding School

Perfect for dog-lovers with busy lifestyles who would like to see significant results in a short period of time.

While basic obedience boarding school is one of the most thorough and effective training programs, if your canine companion has a strong foundation already or if you prefer to actively do the training, the Private Lessons option may be best for you.

Private lessons are perfect for people who:

  1. Are interested in actively training your dog and have some time to spare
  2. Have specific skills or problem behaviors they would like to work on
  3. Prefer one-on-one instruction to a group class
  4. Have a dog that would not do well in a class setting (fearful, aggressive, hyper, etc.)
  5. Want to learn to use a remote collar or other specific training tool

This program is perfect for clients with a busy lifestyle who would like to see significant results in a short period of time without having to do all the foundation work.

My three-week training program will teach your canine companion all foundation commands and allow you to focus on keeping up with your busy schedule. Since your dog will be staying with me during this period, he/she will receive two to four training sessions per day in a comfortable environment with loving care. This program is one of the most effective methods of training and will provide excellent results for you and your companion.
