Private Consultation

 

Our Private Consultation program comes with two sessions, each lasting 2-3 hours, and these sessions are spaced about 4 weeks apart from each other.  This program also includes a day of drop off training.  When you come to work with us at our training center, this program is only $300 $270.  If any additional training sessions are needed after the initial two sessions, we offer additional sessions for $100 per session. You do also have the option to include additional dogs from the same household with this training program for $50 per each additional dog.

Because each dog is different, each session is different and accommodated to what your dog needs in order to learn and succeed. When working with a dog, we always look at the dog as a whole, rather than just focusing on one specific issue (barking, potty training, etc). We combine the use of food, proper motivation, and positive reinforcement with proper structure, leadership, proper nutrition,and the right training tools that work best for your dog to create an all around healthy, structured, happy life for all of the dogs (and their owners) that we work with.

Below is a list of what we will work on with you and your dog during our training sessions:

  • We will teach you dog psychology and pack mentality to help you understand how to communicate with your dog better, and how to read their body language better

  • We will master the walk with your dog, teaching them to walk by your side with a loose leash

  • We will teach you the importance of proper nutrition for your dog, and how proper nutrition is necessary for your dog to be healthy both mentally and physically.

  • We will give you a structured, fun, reasonable training schedule for your dog to follow after they return home, to help them bring everything they learned with us home.

  • We will talk about the importance of crate training and how it can be extremely beneficial to creating a calmer, happier dog.

  • Master sit, down, and stay (with distance and distractions)

  • We will teach you many different ways to correct your dog properly, when needed

  • We can teach your dog to walk on the treadmill (if you have one)

  • We will work on any minor behavior problems (chewing, digging, barking, potty training, etc)

  • We can teach up to two fun tricks (roll over, play dead, etc)

If you would like to teach your dog something, and we didn’t mention it above, please let us know.  We are very willing to be flexible for you during our training sessions to make sure you and your dog learn everything you need in order to have a happy and balanced dog.

Daddy giving Zoey a soft muzzle correction, similar to how we use the Halti (see description below)

One of my favorite training tools is the Halti. When used properly, it has a natural correction that other dogs do to each other, which makes a lot of sense to dogs when they’re trained to the Halti. Daddy is doing that exact correction to Zoey in the picture above. This picture is the perfect example of a dog correcting another dog by gently biting their mouth until they relax, which is exactly what we do with the Halti.
