Private Training

We’re here to help with your dog’s challenging behavior!

Does your dog do things that are embarrassing or frustrating? Are you sick of fighting with your family and losing sleep over your dog’s behavior? Do you feel imprisoned because you can’t take walks in the neighborhood or have guests over like you used to?

We know how you feel and we can absolutely help!

Personal, one-on-one training with an experienced Professional Behavior Specialist is the best option for solving difficult behavior. Our Behavior Specialists are well-versed in behavior & perception modification and are experienced in training dogs with a wide array of behavior problems, including on-leash reactivity (barking, growling, or lunging at others while on leash), hyperactivity, excessive barking, separation anxiety, confinement distress, extreme fearfulness of people or dogs, resource guarding, and aggression.

No matter what problem you’re facing, we’ll teach you the skills you need to confidently change your dog’s behavior – without changing his personality! We always recommend signing up for a Private Training Consultation before purchasing one of our programs. In this strategy session, we will learn more about your needs and goals, get to know your dog’s personality and needs, and tailor a custom training plan to ensure long-term success. Are you ready to invest in a happy, stress-free future?

Consultation

The first step in enrolling in one of our private training programs is to sign up for a Consultation/Strategy Session with one of our Behavior Specialists. During this first meeting, we’ll discuss your dog’s history, the possible progression of the problem behavior, your needs, and your goals for the program. We’ll also evaluate your dog so that we get to know their personality, how they cope with small stressors, where this problem behavior is coming from, and their needs.  Since our Behavior Specialists practice perception modification and behavioral therapy exclusively, the goal of this meeting is so that we can tailor a custom training program to tackle your needs and goals successfully. We want to solve the root of the problem, instead of managing the symptoms, and help your dog make better choices. Ready to sign up?

Total Transformation

Imagine never being embarrassed by your dog again. In this “everything and the kitchen sink” program, we’ll meet for ten hours worth of sessions as well as jump-start your training with eight hours worth of seminars for two attendees. If you’re suffering through difficult behavior problems – including severe on-leash reactivity, hyperactivity, excessive barking, confinement distress, extreme fearfulness of people or dogs, resource guarding, and aggression – and want to be involved with every step of the way, we’re here for you! We will teach you everything you need to be a mini dog trainer and know exactly what to do in any situation. We’ll give you new ways to communicate with your dog and help them become a problem solver who, independently, makes better choices. This will help you both work together as a team, all while building a long-lasting relationship. I’m ready to transform my dog! Show me the details of this Private Training Program!

Simply Manners

This dog training program closely follows either our Puppy Starters or Foundations courses, depending on your dog’s age, and is best suited for families who want to be involved with every step of the training process. In this program, we assist with common training problems – such as potty training, crate training, nipping, jumping on people, pulling on the leash, stealing food, and destructive chewing – as well as obedience cues – such as sit, down, wait/stay, focus, place, come when called, drop it, and leave it. This program does not cover behavior challenges such as severe on-leash reactivity (barking, growling, and/or lunging at others while on leash), excessive barking, separation anxiety, confinement distress, extreme fearfulness of people or dogs, or aggression as we have other programs, tailored for behavior modification, listed above.
