During private lessons we’ll be meeting in your house or at our facility. Your trainer will guide and coach you through the process of training your dog.
Either program is able to be customized to your individual needs. From teaching your dog basic obedience skills to dealing with more serious behavioral problems, we’ll design a program with a concrete plan and specific goals to help you achieve results.
Private lessons will require you to do work in between our meetings. You’ll have homework and will be required to submit videos of your work and progress to your trainer. This is in order to provide you with feedback and help you improve your skills and those of your dog.
In addition to the training, you’ll be counseled on how to improve your structure, management, and relationship with your dog. These are all integral parts of any training plan.
Please keep in mind that these private lessons are intended to go beyond simply teaching the dog a behavior. Very often in order to improve behavior you’ll need to take a more comprehensive and holistic approach to the problem. That means addressing issues with the dog and the humans. Be prepared to work. Do not sign up for private lessons if you do not feel you can commit to the work.
