The advantage of private lessons is that these lessons are taught at your home or mine, in an environment where your dog is comfortable, with fewer distractions. They will be taught at your pace, around your schedule, and you get to decide what you want for your dog to learn.

There are 3 levels in Obedience Training. Level 1 is Basic Obedience. Levels 2 and 3 will be taught simutaneously. These are Advanced Obedience.
Basic Obedience - Includes Relationship Building, Managing Problem Behaviors, and Basic Cues. The first lesson will take 2 hours.
(focus, come, back, sit, down, stand, stay, leave it, heel, loose leash walking, and a few tricks and games, just for fun) This class also comes with training manuals so that you will always have the information at your disposal.
Advanced Obedience-Distraction & Distance- Adding distractions and distance to basic cues and advanced problem behaviors. This section will be taught at my home in a group setting. The times for these classes are on Saturday mornings. Small dogs at 9 am and medium to large dogs at 10:30 am. DOGS WITH AGGRESSION ISSUES WILL NOT BE ALLOWED IN THESE CLASSES.
We will set an appointment and I will come to your home and evaluate any Problem Behavior so as to determine the cause of the problem and offer advise on training techniques and exercises, as well as, suggestions for controlling the environment and management of the problem. Rates for this service vary based upon the behavior and the severity. Please contact me for more information.
Behavior modification will be treated as a private lesson using the same price scale as Problem Solving. I will come to your home, observe and evaluate the problem and create a treatment plan designed specifically for you and your dog and the problem at hand.
