SUMMER BREAK: No new clients until after September 1, 2023.

Group classes aren’t always available when you need them, and group setting isn’t the answer for every dog or dog owner. In some cases, you may need to schedule a private one-on-one training session to resolve specific issues with your dog. 

The approach I practice is the long-lasting one, the proven one: train the dog AND the human.  Whether its walking loose-leash, rolling over, or being able to enroll in that new nosework class -success comes in many forms for each unique dog client.


Initial 90-minute Dog Training Consult

All private dog training requires a 90-minute initial consult. Consults are $200 – $150 depending on travel time/distance from Burke/Springfield.

This initial consult reviews you dog’s history, identifies factors affecting your dog’s success and opens solid communication. Consults are the launchpad for your desired changes and often require some additional sessions to work on the specific skills in your training plan. After each consult, you will receive an evaluation with notes on observed behaviors, a brief write-up with support for skills demonstrated at the appointment.

* No new clients until after 09-01-2023 *
