Private Lessons

We understand some clients and dogs need a little more one on one attention or prefer to have their training customized to their needs. We offer both private and semi-private lessons at our facility or in your home to help your training progress.

In-Home Lessons

We know people are extremely busy and want to maximize their time available, and sometimes making the time to travel to lessons is just not feasible. We will come to your home! One on one lessons, customized to you and your dog’s needs to rectify any poor behaviors (chewing on furniture, peeing in the house, attacking windows when people walk by, rummaging through the trash can, etc) and learning new obedience commands (loose leash walking, sit, down, place, heel, waiting at doorway and sidewalks, stay, come, etc).

This is optimal for individuals who have a busy lifestyle and really want and need help with their dog’s behaviors to enhance the relationship they have together and so you get the most out of the time you have set aside for training your dog.

If you have a neighbor, friend, or relative who has a dog with similar issues and would like to train together… we offer our SEMI -PRIVATE LESSONS at your home to lessen the cost to you both families and to be able to work on socialization also! (Of course, we can always bring one of our proven, safe dogs to help with social boundaries and skills.)

$100 per PRIVATE LESSON or $115 with a Senior Trainer (plus mileage if over a 20 min drive)

At Our Facility

Here at our farm we have the opportunity to work with you and your dog to master a wide range of settings, phobias, social introductions, etc. It also has a LOT of space (23 acres) to practice many different scenarios. It is the ideal place to expose your dog to whatever obedience obstacles you may want your pooch to learn, overcome and accomplish. We encourage you to come visit at any time for a full tour of our facilities and get a sense for who we are, what we do and how we can help you, your family and your fur-baby.

We have many family members, neighbors or best friends that travel together and would love to have their dogs be able to play together as well. Or, better yet, be able to listen and obey simple instructions when at each others houses, yards, parks, hotel rooms, etc. We are happy to combine training with dogs of similar learning abilities and if you don’t have a buddy but we do- we may even be able to hook up your pooch with his or her new bestie and do some SEMI-PRIVATE LESSONS which lessen the cost to both parties! PAWSOME!
