How it Works

Our In-Home Training program includes the following steps:

Step 1: Initial On-Board Training Session

The initial On-board Training Session is 1.5 to 2 hours during which our trainer works with you to determine why behaviors are happening and what we’re going to do to help resolve the problem. We meet with you and your dog, conduct a detailed interview about your dog, assess your dog’s behavior and clarify your training goals. Next, we design a training plan to effectively train and/or modify problem behaviors. Most owners will start to see results after this initial session.

Step 2: Private Training Sessions

After the On-board Training Session, we work with you and your dog privately in 60-minute training sessions held either in your home or in real-world settings. We offer single-session rates or discounted rates for three, five, seven or nine sessions.
