Private Training

Personalized Lifestyle Training:

A deeper, more focused level of one-on-one attention—the gold standard in dog training.

Imagine being able to verbally steer your dog away from danger at a distance—or maybe your dinner plate! Or recalling your dog mid-run and moving straight into a side heel. Sound like an unachievable dream? It’s not. Valerie will get you there!

Class Description:

In-Home training programs are designed for the family that wants to be directly involved and personally responsible for the success of their dog’s training. In this option, you meet with Valerie for hour-long one-on-one sessions, in a variety of locations such as your home, parks, and almost any location where you want to help with your dog’s behavior in that situation.

Valerie will teach you how to train your dog, and how to specifically address the things that are important to you. Our lessons are customized to help ensure you can meet your specific and unique goals.

Called “Lifestyle Training”, this is where Valerie will help you incorporate the training of your dog into your day-to-day life.

Our Goal For You

Our main goal is to help dogs and their owners live happily together. The dogs that go through our in-home training programs end up behaving better with other dogs, with strangers, and with their owners.

We aim to make sure that every dog has a chance to have the best life possible.

What Will I Learn?

We come to your home for training sessions. Each session is scheduled one week apart, which allows you to have practice time in-between with your dog. Private sessions create an environment conducive to learning including everything from manners to off leash training during real world distractions. You’ll also learn how to stop all unwanted behaviors from your dog and maintain obedience around other animals and guests.

Here’s how we approach improving your pup’s behavior:

  • The first part of the session are devoted to our trainers learning all about your dog. This is the time for you to discuss specific problems your dog is having. The more our trainers are able to learn, the better they can help.
  • The remainder of the session is devoted to training. Our professionals will show you how the training is done—instead of just telling you—and provide tips for practicing what you and your dog have learned.
  • Lessons end with the trainer assigning customized homework based on your dog’s areas of concern. You’ll also be able to ask questions about anything and everything related to your dog. You can even contact your trainer after the session for no extra charge.

The best thing about in-home training is our ability to meet the needs of customers on a variety of budgets. Sometimes clients want us to focus on one or two behaviors, while others prefer a more complete package.

With our skilled trainers inside your home, you and your dog will learn to reach our training goals!
There’s no better convenience than in-home training, tailored specifically for your dog.
