Which Course is Right for You?
Below are the training programs that I offer. Each course or training lesson is custom-tailored to your specific dog and situation. All of my training programs are designed to be humane and do not involve any harsh leash or verbal corrections. You will learn how to use a body harness or head collar to encourage and guide your dog through the training process.

This course is designed for puppies up to 5 months and includes 4 hour-long training sessions that are conducted in and around your home. You will participate in teaching your puppy how to be a sweet member of the family by using safe and gentle techniques. Learn how to lay down a strong foundation that will encourage your puppy to offer behaviors naturally and this will pave the way for more advanced training as the puppy matures. Here are just some of the topics that will be covered in the Puppy Basics course:
Healthy exercise and structured play
This course is designed for puppies and dogs 5 months and older. With the Day Training option, I will be working with your dog Monday through Friday for one hour each day. The duration is usually 1-3 weeks, depending on the behaviors being addressed. There is a lesson included with each week of training so that I can teach you what your dog is learning. The following is a brief run down of what I will be covering in the day training program:
Addressing common behavioral problems (pulling, jumping, lunging, etc.)
Addressing more serious behavioral problems (reactivity to other dogs or people, resource guarding, anxiety-related problems, etc.)
If you're interested in learning how to train your dog yourself, I'm happy to offer one-on-one private lessons to coach you along the way. The lessons are an hour long and are normally scheduled on a weekly basis. We will discuss how you can incorporate the training sessions into your daily routine in an effort to make the training process fluid and structured. There are no minimum number of lessons to purchase,
