Private or In-Home Lessons


Is your dog not quite ready for the "class" setting of group obedience classes? Is your dog ready for more than a group obedience class? Whatever the reason, whatever the need our trainers can help. 

Private lessons will help you take your dog to the next level of obedience or will help you to work on specific social issues. Such as fear-based aggression, excessive barking, submissive/inappropriate urination and inappropriate leash behavior.
