Group classes are a perfect way to develop a dog's confidence in a group setting, practice skills with a number of distractions, socialize your pup, or practice your own handling skills! We offer options for a number of skill levels, and our classes are made so that you can advance from beginner classes to advanced classes with ease. Review our class options to determine which class would be most appropriate for you and your dog, or contact us if you're not sure which class would be best.
Private training sessions are an opportunity for dog owners to work one-on-one with a trainer on a specific behavioral challenge or goal. Private sessions are a great choice for a variety of reasons, and we offer a number of different private training options depending on your needs. All private training options require an initial consult to ensure we are making the best choice for you and your dog. During your initial in-home consultation, we will discuss your concerns and/or training goals, we will talk about the steps we need to take to help you reach your goal, and we will discuss the best private training options for you.
Please complete the Private Training Registration Form to start the process. Based on the information you provide, we will determine if your concern can be addressed by our trainer or if we need to make a referral for you to see a colleague with more specialized skills. It may be possible that once we meet with you for our initial consultation that one or both parties decides that we are not the right fit for your specific need, and we will offer referral options for you if needed at that point as well.

We understand that taking time to train can be a concern for many people, so our day training options allow your dog to get started with training while you're at work. We will come to your home and work with your dog, usually several times a week initially, to begin the training process or behavior modification program agreed upon for your dog. Follow-up sessions are required with this program so that you can continue the training at home once it's been started for you. This service includes a personalized training plan, email summaries after each session, and the ability to reach the trainer via email or phone between sessions as needed.
- 5 Day Training sessions plus 1 follow-up session: $425 (save $25)
- 10 Day Training sessions plus 2 follow-up sessions: $825 (save $75)
Daytime Enrichment Packages
Some dogs cannot attend daycare for various reasons, but still need some form of daytime enrichment to meet their emotional and physical health needs. These packages include a daytime potty break as well as any of the following (or any other creative enrichment ideas we can come up with together): jogging, clicker training or other brain games, relaxation exercises, comfort with things like nail trims or grooming, walking games, and much more. Daytime enrichment is not meant to take the place of day training for dogs with behavioral concerns. An initial consult is required prior to scheduling daytime enrichment to ensure this is the right service for you and your dog. This service includes an emailed "report card" after each session.
- 5 30-minute sessions: $150
- 10 30-minute sessions: $250 (save $50)
- 5 60-minute sessions: $300
- 10 60-minute sessions: $500 (save $100)
Pet Sit and Train
This training program is intended to occur while you're on vacation, and is similar to Board and Train programs in that your dog gets training throughout the day on a daily basis. You will have the benefit of someone staying in your home while you're away, your dog will not need to go to a boarding facility, and we do training in your home so that you can continue with training upon your return and your dog will be off to a great start. The benefit of doing this type of training in your home is that our trainer can work on your dog's behavioral concerns, setting boundaries in your dog's natural environment, and following your dog's typical routine. At least one follow-up session upon your return is required, and during the initial consultation we may discuss the need to change the dog's environment to address some of the concerns. You must be traveling for a minimum of 7 days for this service to be of benefit to you.
- $125/day - 7 day minimum
- For multi-dog households, please contact us for more information on this service.
