In Home Consultation (first lesson)
$165

1 hour
I come to your home to learn about your dog's behavior and needs. We'll cover your most pressing concerns, and can potentially cover up to 3 skills in a session. There's some human learning involved here too. We'll set up a plan to continue, or you can just use as a consult to continue on your own with resources.

This is necessary for behavior cases that will involve intense behavior change plans.

We’ll create a behavior plan and work on a few exercises each session in order to reach your goals with your dog.

LIMITED Saturday Appointments
$190
Service
1 hour, 15 minutes
Scheduling can be a challenge, and I'd like to offer a few select appointments on saturdays to alleviate scheduling challenges.

These appointments are not available to be used in any packages or at a discount.

In our first session your trainer gathers information that can’t be sized up in our enrollment forms. This is a requirement for dogs who may have aggression or behavior modification needs.

In a typical first session we identify our training goals together. We set up your environment for success, and make sure any management needs are met. We begin to work on a system of communication and start teaching human skills and begin dog training exercises to start owners with a foundation that we build upon.
