Private lessons for new puppy owners, focusing on raising confident, outgoing and resilient puppies through proper socialization, exposure to low-stress life experiences, introduction to obedience, teaching new behaviors and preventing unwanted behaviors.

In-Home Private lessons are one-on-one training sessions designed to address behaviors specific to your dog and the environment where the dog is facing struggles such as destructive behaviors, counter surfing, barking, crate training, boundaries, impulse control and more. The trainer comes to your home, we assess the situation and work together on the solution. In-Home Private lessons are the best option for those owners who want to be involved in the training process.

“Field Trip” Day Camp program is designed for dogs of all ages, however, young dogs will benefit from it most. “Field Trip” Day Camp is a program where your dog comes to stay with us for some time during the day. We spend our day taking field trips to pet-friendly environments for socialization, exposure and positive experiences. This program is great for building confidence in young dogs, ability to pinpoint specific behaviors such as fear or shyness by consistent exposure to life stimuli. This program is perfect for the owners who do not have an abundance of time in their day.

Board and Train program is designed for dogs who would benefit from more precise mechanics of training, consistent and intensive training regimen compared to weekly or bi-weekly private lessons. During a Board and Train, your dog comes to stay with us for 4 to 8 weeks and goes through several training sessions a day, a change of environment and routine, as well as goes for field trips to pet friendly environments to proof newly introduced skills. Board and Train includes a go-home lesson, 3 private follow-up lessons and training equipment.

Off Leash Reliability & Recall is #1 safety skill your dog should know. Teaching your dog to “come” can help protect your dog in any situation. This program is a mixture of private lessons and “Field Trip” Day Camp and designed to maximize the efficacy of time put in to practice and really challenge the dog in order to achieve laser focus and great engagement in highly distracting environments.

Most dog owners don’t consider muzzle training until their dog is needing to wear one. The reason can be anything from an overwhelming veterinary procedure, a stressful visit to the groomer, history of biting people or dogs, munching on rocks, mulch or poo and more. Picking the right muzzle brand & model, fitting and conditioning is an add-on service and can be purchased together with a private lesson plan.
