Private Lesson Program

This is our most hands on program for dog owners. This customized program includes four sessions and will give you the results that you need.

For your dog that could use a little more guidance than our Mind Your Manners program we offer a more customized private lesson bundle. Our private lessons are aimed at more than just manners but creating a dog that everyone wants to be around. In these four sessions we work on manners such as sit, stay, down, the “place” command - for your dog to go to a specific mat or bed until released even with distractions, and other undesirable manners as well as added benefits of nice leash walking, coming when called, waiting patiently for food, and even socialization or the use of an e-collar if desired. Other manners or behaviors can also be worked on during our four sessions and are customizable to the unique requirements of you and your dog.

Mind Your Manners Program

Do you just need a little direction? Is your dog almost what you would like, but just needs that extra bit of information to help get you over the top? Our Mind your Manners program is an ideal two hour consult that will leave you prepared to get your dog on the right path.

Created for dogs from age 18 months through adult, our Mind Your Manners program will quickly cover the basics of how to work with your dog on training him/her to sit, stay, walk nicely on a leash and the “place” command (going to a designated location such as a mat or bed and stay there until released). This is a true crash course as it is only a 2-hour session but can help kick-start your future training needs.

Puppy Head Start Program

This program will start you off on the right foot with your new addition.

This two hour consult will cover everything you need to get started with your new puppy. This is hands on and will give you tons of information to help get over those pesky behaviors that puppies usually exhibit in the first few months.

You brought that new puppy home and now don’t know what to do? Our Puppy Head Start Program is for dogs ages 8 weeks to 18 months of age to help get you and your puppy on the right track. Since puppies, like children, are sponges and learn quickly, the earlier you can start the better. Typical “puppy” behavior like chewing, peeing in the house, walking nicely on a leash, sit, food manners and the “place” command will all be addressed during this 2-hour session. By learning these valuable training tools and practicing them long after the session is over you will help prevent any future bad manners in these areas. With a good training foundation your puppy will grow up to be a well-mannered good canine that is a joy to be around.
