Private Sessions are programs catered to your specific needs. We develop a special training and behavioral management plan that meets your specific goals, and your environment. Training in your home is more flexible than classes so we can work around your varying schedule, (and you avoid driving and traffic). Many behaviors occur only in the home, another location, or under certain circumstances. Your best chance for success is to train in that environment.

Increase your dog’s confidence: Many problem behaviors dogs exhibit are simply a lack of confidence. We can begin working on this before starting your dog in a group class.
Less distractions: Many dogs are distracted easily. Starting with private sessions teaches the dog to focus on you. Once the dog has learned a few behaviors, we are ready to” take it on the road”.
