Private Lessons- one on one sessions with you, your dog and the trainer. These sessions can be done at your home where the problems normally exist to insure the training is related to your home environment or in novel environments as needed. Families are welcome to attend if you desire. These sessions generally last one hour. Our goal is to completely cover the issue we are working on that session. Private lessons are perfect for the owner that wants to be hands on in the training. Private lessons are great for puppy head start, basic obedience, advanced obedience as well as help with behavior problems. You can choose from a set of 4, 5, or 6 sessions.
