Private Training

Many dogs struggle to fit into modern life in an urban environment. My goal as a trainer is help you gain greater understanding of your dog’s needs and their behavior. Whether you are looking to set your puppy up for success or address problem behaviors I am here to help. 

My training is centered around client coaching with an emphasis on team building between human and dog. I strive to empower my clients with the knowledge and skills to train their dogs effectively no matter where you are starting. 

Every week you will receive an easy to follow training plan with hands on coaching to help you achieve your goals.

My specialties include:

  • Core behaviors (sit, down, stand, stay, wait at door, mat work, placement cues, recall etc)

  • Barking and lunging

  • Trail manners

  • Leash skills

  • Enrichment

  • Puppy and adolescent dogs

  • Confidence building

My Philosophies

I believe that dogs (and people) should be treated with kindness and respect.

 

I use only modern, evidence-based, humane training techniques. I do not use any prong, choke, or shock collars. 

Dogs are unique and sentient beings with their own individual learning styles. There is no cookie cutter training plan that will work for every dog. For that reason I will not make any guarantee that I will “fix” your dog, or modify a behavior within a set time frame. However, reward based training is highly effective and I can help you reach many behavioral goals.

I believe that training is a life-long endeavor. Dogs are always learning, even when we are not actively training. This is why my goal is educate and empower dog owners to better understand their dogs behavior and needs, while giving you the tools to reach your behavioral goals and create a deeper bond with your dog. 

I am honest and transparent when taking on new clients. If I feel your case is beyond my level of experience or knowledge I will refer you to a more appropriate trainer.

Intake Consultation

All training starts with an intake consultation.  After completing an intake form we will schedule your consultation. Consultations are generally 60 - 90 minutes long and can be done in person or remotely. Afterwards, you will receive a detailed follow up email with personalized training recommendations for your dog.

Day Training Program

Day training is a program where I work one on one with your dog several times a week to help meet your training goals. To ensure that you are also learning the necessary skills to help your dog succeed weekly handover sessions between client and trainer are mandatory. Day training is not suitable for all training cases and space is limited.

  • 3 sessions per week (1 session will include a client handover session)

  • $300 per week

  • 4 week minimum commitment
