Private Puppy Training - in home
PRIVATE TRAINING for Puppy and Adolescent in the Home: 8 weeks - 12 months
- Training is provided in the privacy of your home and each session is 60 minutes long. You and your dog will learn basic foundation and communicate skills to better manage expectations. We go beyond basic manners training to ensure you and your dogs unique and individual needs are met. In addition to learning body mechanics and timing we will review home management, walking the neighborhood and managing unexpected encounters, review low arousal play/with friends or at the park. Working individually allows us to tailor sessions to your specific needs and make changes based on your needs. You will receive homework and have access to the trainer any time during the week for support. You may choose to hire me for however long you need. If you train for six sessions will be eligible to test for AKC Puppy S.T.A.R Pre-Canine Good Citizen Test (an optional test).
