Private Lessons

Private lessons are customized for each individual dog. Combined with flexible scheduling at your convenience, there are so many advantages in having private lessons. If you simply want your dog to learn not to pull on the leash, perhaps one lesson is all you need. Sessions can be focused on overcoming certain difficulties or can be a basic obedience course. We will address the issues most important to you.

Puppy Training & Management

Puppies must be at least 7-8 weeks of age.

Our priority is in behavior markers, socialization, introducing the leash and potty training. The goal of these sessions is to teach the puppy basic skills that are essential in encouraging manageable behavior in and around the home. We also want to enhance the young dog’s receptiveness to future training sessions. Training will cover biting/nipping, chewing, walking on a leash, manners and basic commands such as sit, no and come.

Nose Work

Prerequisite: Basic Obedience Training

Nosework or scent detection is the hottest new sport around because it's fun for both, dogs and humans, and more important, it buids confidence and focus in dogs that have issues like shyness, reactivity, aggression, or a simple lack of confidence.  We'll teach your dog to locate a scent and communicate to the handler that the scent has been found. Real-life detection dogs are trained to search for a variety of things–drugs, explosives, human remains, currency, other contraband, living humans, and much more.  This class will create the amazing working relationship and turns it into a fun game that any dog can play.

Canine Good Citizen Test

Prerequisite: Basic Obedience Training

The Canine Good Citizen (CGC) certification program is a training test for dogs overseen by the American Kennel Club (AKC). The certification rewards dogs for their good behavior in their home and out in the community. Being a “Good Citizen” isn’t easy. A dog must pass a variety of tests before awarded the certification. It is usually the first step into canine sports however it can also be used as an individual reward for your well-trained companion.
