Private Training 

Private trainings are set up to work around your schedule and focus on an agenda to meet the needs of your particular dog.  This can be done in the comfort of your home, a store, a park, etc.  We move at the pace of your pup and can modify the curriculum at any time.  

The first training session is an hour and a half.  This allows for enough time to meet the owner, family, dog, and time to prepare an agenda. Training sessions after that are one hour.  Most trainings are one time per week for one hour.
