    Private Dog Training Lessons - Discontinued

    We have decided to discontinue this training program. I have enjoyed over 35 years of training clients and their dogs. My goal has always been to ensure dogs stay in their homes for life and the families enjoy their pets. It’s with a heavy heart I have made this decision and move on to a new chapter in my life.

    Phone Consultations will be our alternate training option available for owner’s and their pets.

    Private dog lessons give us the advantage of having a one on one working dog session with your family and your pooch. We can work on basic politeness around the home and obedience. You are trained at the same time your pooch is being trained with my full attention. This program can be tailored to fit the need of the client.

    Information and techniques for potty training, crate training, leadership, basic commands, and redirecting behaviors such as jumping and destructive chewing can usually be solved in one or two sessions. Maybe you just want a lesson to brush up on your dog’s training and reliability by adding some distractions.

    More serious dog behavior problems such as fear aggression, shyness, possession aggression with food or toys, dog to dog aggressions can be addressed in this one on one dog training format but might require several sessions to accomplish the desired results. We will use various behavior modification or systematic desensitization methods to address these types of dog behavior problems.
    Sessions usually run 1 hour

    Phone Consultation

    We are offering Phone Consultation Calls to continue to help owners and their pets. Call us for more Information at 972-529-4920. We are offering 1 hour sessions for $140 per hour ( or prorated half hour sessions where feasible). Consultations will include handouts and exercises you can perform at home. Most basic training commands and help with new puppies can be handled with this type of format. There are certain problem behaviors, such as jumping, chewing, potty issues, etc. that we can deal with as well. However, we would want to briefly talk over the phone about your training goals and have a training application to ensure we can assist you.

    Note to Owners

    What your dog learns during these lessons depends on the client’s needs, what your pet already knows and the pace at which your dog can learn. To keep your dog progressing it is also important to continue training on a consistent basis utilizing the handouts and the skills shown to you during the lesson. This will help your pet retain the proper behaviors and to keep improving skills for a lifetime of enjoyable companionship with one another.
