Private Lessons

Private Lessons and Behavioral Consultations

Private instruction is tailored to meet your individual needs. We can come to your home or meet you at one of our training sites.

In-home sessions can be particularly useful in assessing difficult behavior problems such as aggression, reactivity, anxiety, fear, or destructive behavior in the home. We will assist you in assessing your home environment, routines, and any contributing factors and will help you develop a reasonable plan to address your concerns.

We will assist you in evaluating aggression concerns and may make a referral to veterinary behavioral specialists.

We may recommend (or require) that you have your dog examined by your veterinarian to rule out medical conditions. Partnering with your veterinarian for a complete physical and blood work can identify any health concerns that may be contributing to the undesirable behavior.

Private lessons are also available for those individuals who simply prefer private instruction instead of group classes.

Ready to schedule your private lesson? Please download and fill out the Behavior Questionnaire (Microsoft Word document format, also available to fill out online if you would prefer) and email it to us or contact us with any questions.
