Private Day Training
1 on 1 In Home SessionsIn home sessions are ideal for people struggling with undesirable behaviors, who want to actively participate in their dog's training. This comprehensive, results oriented program covers everything you need for a well behaved family dog. Our unique approach to dog training focuses on creating a happy, healthy, balanced canine companion rather than simply having a dog that knows a few basic obedience cues. In addition to basic foundational behaviors such as– Sit/Stay, Down/Stay, Place, Come/Recall - we'll also address behavior problems such as:
- Poor leash manners (pulling, barking, lunging at other dogs, etc.)
- Nuisance barking
- Jumping up
- Mouthing or nipping
- Counter surfing
- Any other issues you might be experiencing
The initial 2-hour session includes a consultation and assessment, after which we'll put together a training program to begin creating a home environment with structure, rules and boundaries to help your dog live harmoniously in the home. We'll move directly into hands-on training with you and your dog. You'll begin to see dramatic changes in your dog’s behavior within this first session! The next three sessions are 1 hour each, where we'll continue to work hands-on with you and your dog to help you achieve your goals.
Micro SessionsComprised of two sessions (three hours total), this is an ideal choice for dogs with lower intensity behavior issues that don't need a full program.
Issues that can be covered in this program may include difficulties on the walk (pulling, lunging, barking, reacting to other dogs, etc.), or help with basic obedience work or troubleshooting behavior problems such as jumping, barking, mouthing and other annoying behaviors.
As with all our training, we will address the fundamental state of mind of your dog, enabling your dog to live in harmony in your home and out in public. The result is a happy, healthy well behaved life companion.
The initial 2-hour session includes a consultation, assessment, and hands-on training with you and your dog. You'll begin to see dramatic changes in your dog’s behavior within this first session! The second session is one hour.
* To achieve the desired results some training equipement may be required, and is not included in the training fee.

The Walk DoctorIs walking your dog a nightmare? Has it become something you avoid instead of something you look forward to? It does NOT have to be that way! Don’t waste another day being frustrated with your dog. With the right tools and strategies, you can improve your walk - and your bond with your dog - in mere minutes. It doesn't have to take weeks and months!!
The walk is about more than exercise or mental sitmulation. It's an important cornerstone in your relationship with your dog – it's your primary opportunity to create the leadership, structure, confidence and impulse control your dog desperately needs. If your dog is pulling or dragging you on-leash, marking every bush, reactive or aggressive to other dogs, people, bikes, skateboards, etc. you are undermining your relationship in more ways than one. Instead of feeling frustrated and embarrassed it's time to take the lead!
Your Walk Doctor program will teach you how to create an enjoyable and relaxing walking experience for you and your dog. We'll meet you both at a local park where we'll work together to significantly improve all of the issues you're having on the walk. The first session is 1.5 hours, the second is 1 hour. Prepare to be amazed!
*Does not include a prong training collar, if you need one. We sell Herm Sprenger brand collars (the best) for $30. Greater distances may require a mileage fee.
