Private Lessons

Private Lessons and Behavioral Consultations

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

One-on-one instruction is a great place to start any training, whether you’re bringing home a brand new puppy or dealing with serious behavioral issues.

To get started, please 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. Once you’ve submitted your questionnaire, we will match you with the best trainer for your unique training needs. Want to work with a specific trainer? You can request this on the questionnaire!
