Private Dog Training
Private training is offered at my training studio on Fridays and sometimes on Saturdays. This type of training allows me to focus all my attention on you and your needs. This is a great choice for people with unpredictable schedules who are unable to attend a group class or dogs with special needs. If your dog is overly aroused by other dogs or outside settings it is best to start with private training with a goal of working towards group classes. While private training is more expensive than group classes, I can cover more in each session than I can in a group class. During your sessions I teach you how to train your dog by working with your dog and showing you how to do what I do as well as coaching you to succeed. In addition to the time I work with your dog, you will be working with them during and between sessions. Follow up support via email and text are included at no extra cost.
Your first evaluation visit is an hour and a half long. This allows me to talk with you and get a thorough background. We will discuss issues and problems you are experiencing as well as your goals for training before starting foundational training exercises.
Follow up training sessions are an hour long.
Private lessons can address many needs:
· Basic obedience training (sit, stay, down, come, leash walking, wait, leave it, etc.)
· Reactivity while on leash (people, other dogs)
· Boundary training (no dashing out the door or gates)
· Handling for grooming (brushing, clipping nails etc)
· Recognizing body language
· Fears or phobias (places, people, noises, other dogs)
· Destructive behaviors
· Resource guarding (mild)
· New puppy prep/puppy fundamentals
· Crate training
· Clicker training and tricks

I DO NOT take aggression cases. If your dog has bitten a person or dog resulting in the need for medical attention or court ordered training we are happy to give you a referral to a trainer that works with aggressive dogs.
In Home Training & Remote Sessions
I DO NOT offer in home training. All training is done at my training studio in Westminster or at an agreed upon park location. If your dog is unable to leave your home due to fear I offer remote online sessions.
Payment & Cancellation Policy
Dog training is not a part time job or hobby for me. It is my sole means of support. That means that every hour I work must be maximized and valued. When you schedule with me I am reserving that time specifically for you. Therefore payment is due at time of booking. Cancellations with more than 7 days notice will be refunded at 100%. Cancellations within 3-7 days will be refunded at 50%. Cancellations with less than 3 days notice or no shows will not receive a refund.
