Private Dog Training Single Sessions

Private Dog Training | Single Sessions

With private training, I can offer services tailored to your specific needs with the flexibility of choosing your own session dates and times. Having this training at and/or outside your home or neighbourhood also saves you valuable time and allows me to see how your dog is doing where they spend most of their life.

Not sure how much training you should do? No problem. Book your sessions one or two at a time based on your dog's progress. I strongly recommend making an appointment as soon as possible to prevent bad habits from forming or progressing.

Private Dog Training Packages

Private Dog Training Package | Puppy Training Package

Sign up for a dog training package or puppy training package and save. Same perks and services as single sessions plus puppy specific or problem specific information and coaching. Ideal for new puppies and dog adoptions.

The initial session can take place even before your dog/puppy arrives home to help you prepare and set up if you'd like. Each dog and situation is different and therefore the number of sessions needed to achieve best results may vary. Additional training sessions can be purchased at the discounted rate.

Dog Boarding

Dog Boarding

Whether you need to be away from home for a day, a week, or even a longer period of time, I can offer boarding for your dog in the safe and loving environment of my own home. They will enjoy being a part of my family by participating in walks, play sessions and other fun activities, while also getting one-on-one training and cuddling time with me.

Advanced booking required, spaces are limited.

Dog Boarding

Board & Train

Board & Train can be a great way to maximize training in a short period of time. This service is meant to be a jump start to your dog's training, not a substitute. Additional days can be purchased and/or may be recommended as each dog and situation is different and therefore the training time needed to achieve best results may vary. That said, while a Board & Train package should give you a great head start, training must be continued at home as soon as your dog comes back (and this is a condition when purchasing this service) otherwise any results that I achieve will be short lived. It is also important to know that behaviour is fluid, thus subject to change, and that dogs are very specific learners as well, which means that they need to be trained in different locations and under different circumstances. Therefore training results cannot be guaranteed. Any Board & Train package does include an in-home training session with the humans in the family in order to transfer knowledge and get the training started in the dog's home to give you the best chance possible at successful continued training. Dog Training is an ongoing need and responsibility.

Advanced booking required, spaces are limited.

Phone Consultation

Depending on the issue, a phone consultation may be helpful. It's a great way to receive more information so you can keep progressing between sessions or to learn without committing to in-person training.
