Private lessons are a great way to customize a training plan to you and your dog. We focus on training towards your specific goals, in the environment where you need the behaviors to work. Our job in these lessons is to teach you how to train your dog, so that you can carry on the training after we are gone.
All of our Training Packages include lessons, and we are happy to create a la carte schedules of Lessons only for those who prefer the hands on learning. Whether we are meeting with you Virtually via Zoom or In Person, we promise you will learn a lot!
Schedule a complimentary phone call with one of our trainers! This is a great way to ask us some questions, give us an idea of what is going on in your home, and talk with us about the training process. This phone call can help you feel more comfortable and confident in booking your initial session with us and is a great way to get to know us.
Phone Consultations are available on Fridays between 4 and 6pm.
In Person Lesson
For our clients who want to continue with lessons and would prefer to meet in person, we are happy to offer in person lessons as well. In Person Lessons are about an hour long each session, and can be scheduled to take place at your home or out in public.
In Person Lessons are still focused on you being able to do the work with your dog, and on working through the behaviors in the environment where they are needed.
Initial Virtual Lesson
Virtual Lessons are a great way to get started in your training journey! All of our clients begin with a Virtual Lesson scheduled over Zoom. The first lesson being virtual allows us to discuss your issues and goals with fewer distractions. We are able to go over a lot of concepts, introduce you to some new skills, and even get you practicing on camera while we watch! This an especially effective start for those whose pups are nervous of new people coming into the home.
After your initial Virtual Lesson you can either elect to continue with Virtual Lessons, or move to In Person Lessons if your trainer agrees. We do require pre-payment for initial lessons.
Virtual Check In
Need some advice but not sure you need a full lesson, or looking for a more cost effective option? Our Virtual Check In is a 30 minute meeting over Zoom and is a great way to troubleshoot training struggles, or just ask some questions of our trainers.
Continuing with your lessons Virtually is a great option for continued training. Through our Virtual Lessons we are able to offer the same level of coaching even if you are in strict quarantine, or out of town! You can even utilize your smartphone and take us on a walk with you to help you work through things like leash walking and reactivity in the moment!
Our ability to give active instructions as you practice at home, combined with demonstrating on our end with our own pups and sharing instructional videos with you, means that your training experience will be very similar to us being there in person with the bonus factor of your dog not being distracted by the cookie lady!
