  Private & Group Training for all Dogs!!

Puppy, adult or rescue dogs
Basic manners and life skills

Why private in home schooling for your puppy or adult dog?
Training in the home where your dog is most comfortable, is the kindest way to train your dog. It allows for little distraction, and better focus from your dog, which is very important as you and your dog learn new skills. 

Private (in your home) lessons, allow you to customize the day and time that suits your schedule best. Private lessons in your home, are also ideal for those dogs who suffer with social anxiety and reactivity, as it allows them to learn in a safe environment.

Private in home lessons offer the best option for shy, nervous and reactive dogs, as it allows them to gain self confidence and focus on handler, prior to attending group classes.


Where do group classes come in?

Group activity classes are great for dogs, once they have developed self confidence, focus on handler and basic skills in the comfort of their home first . However, some dogs do just fine in a group setting, and enjoy the social aspect of learning in a group.

Lessons are designed to provide guidance in teaching your canine family member some basic skills that most pet parents desire from their dog (such as basic manners - sit, down, come and more). I will also help handlers accomplish focus from their dogs, and teach fun skills to teach their dog for re-focus and re-direction.
All lessons are based on a positive and respectful approach to teaching and all are reward based. This means that rewards such as food treats, toys, and environmental rewards will be used in the learning process.
