A key benefit of Private Sessions in Basic Obedience is that the sessions can fit your schedule and include your entire family. Each one hour session includes hands-on training exercises to address your dog's specific obedience issues.
We cover information about canine behavior to help you understand what motivates your dog. Discovering what motivates your pet is the key to gaining more attention and control with your pet. With more control, you'll have a more confidence and really be able to enjoy your relationship with your pet. You will have relaxed walks on leash, a polite canine to greet friends and family at the front door and so on.
These sessions are available in packages of three, six, nine, and twelve, 1-hour sessions. The sessions are tailored to your specific needs and we can work at beginner, intermediate or advanced levels.
You will learn the essentials of reward-based training and how to pair it with proper timing and consistency to reap major benefits in your dog’s overall behavior. You will receive one-on-one coaching to learn the skills to handle your dog in a variety of situations. These sessions are designed to create the comfort you need to manage your dog at home and in public, with other people and other dogs present.
The number of sessions will depend on your pet's prior training and the issues he or she presents. Our methods are very effective and, generally, dogs are quick to respond. That said, there are some dogs and/or some behaviors that are more difficult and will need additional time, repetition and patience. For these dogs a 10 session package is recommended. The number of sessions will be discussed during a phone or in-person consultation.
