PRIVATE TRAINING OPTIONS
We only use force-free and positive reinforcement methods to keep you and your pet loving the learning process!
Consultations are your first step to begin a behavior modification or private training plan for your dog. You will be given a honest assessment of your dog's behavior and then be provided with an individualized training plan going forward to help you see your goals become reality. You will also receive a full write up of your pet's behavior assessment and discuss the best options for you going forward. If follow-up lessons are needed, this will be discussed during your consultation. Consultations can be via Zoom or in-person. Virtual consultations are best for any dog displaying people aggression or separation anxiety.
