Private Lessons

Our private training lessons offer flexibility to your schedule and are tailored to the needs of each dog and their human. Customized private lessons are held at either the comfort of your home or at our Pend Oreille Pet Lodge training facility. Lessons are 60 minutes each.

In contrast to group classes, our focus is solely on you and your dog. We will target the skills and behaviors that are important to you. Dogs and their humans can greatly benefit from a quieter, less distracting environment, where they can fully concentrate on the task at hand. In private lessons the instructor has far more time to assess and discuss your specific concerns and achieve your goals.

Private lessons will help you take your dog to the next level, whether that be basic manners and obedience, off-leashing training, or specific behavior issues. Such as aggression, leash reactivity, excessive barking, fear, anxiety, and much more.

Our trainers will do a client needs assessment and behavior evaluation of your dog on the first visit. From there, we will develop a short and long-term training program to meet your goals. Regardless of your dog’s breed, age, personality, or history, we can create a customized dog training program that will fit your dog and lifestyle.

We are here to help you set the framework for long term success and teach you how to maintain results! Our programs are homework intensive!
Aggression or problem behaviors may require extensive training. We require foundation training first! You can achieve this through our eight- lesson package or our comprehensive stay and train program. Don’t wait to improve your relationship with your dog. Call us today to schedule a behavior consultation visit.

**Initial lesson and house visits must be paid in full at the time of scheduling to reserve your spot**
