Private training is available year-round.
Most private instruction is done in the comfort of your own home--I come to you to work with you and your dog one-on-one. Private lessons can be scheduled one at a time to exactly suit your
needs. I also offer a discount package of five lessons for the price of four.
One-on-one lessons do cost more; there are also many advantages. In-home training may be a better choice for you if:
1. You need training services when group classes aren't being offered.
I wish I had an indoor training arena, but my training location is outdoors. Because of our inclement winter weather, I can only offer group classes when it's warm and dry enough to train outside.
2. You have special learning goals or needs. Some people find it challenging to learn in a group and prefer setting their own pace with one-on-one instruction. Others have particular training needs or goals that aren't covered in the typical group class. Private training allows you to customize the instruction to meet your exact needs.
3. You want to focus on in-home manners or behaviors. Your dog already knows how to lie down and you really don't care about leash walking--you just want him or her to learn to stay off the couch and not dash out the door! Private training allows us to work on the specific household behaviors you need in the location where you need it most--your own home.
4. Your dog has a behavior issue or problem. Some dogs are nervous, excited or stressed by a group setting and can't focus on learning around other dogs. Other dogs need a few private lessons to get ready for the next level. And fearful dogs or dogs with aggression issues need those issues addressed before they're ready for a public class.
