Our Services

In-Home private training lessons are designed to meet your dog’s specific needs. These may range from learning basic skills and manners to more serious issues that require behavior modification programs. In-Home is used loosely here as we will take training to wherever your dog needs it: at home, the neighborhood, the park, your car, or the vet’s office! Prices vary depending on the type of training needed, the number of dogs being worked with, and travel miles.

We do offer In-Home/Private Puppy Training Packages at a lower cost than those for older pups: $665 for  five training sessions, $985 for eight training sessions, and then a single session or Puppy Consultation is $245.00. This offer is for puppies between 8 and 20 weeks old. When you come on board to train with us when your puppy is young, we hold that special puppy pricing for the duration of your training stay with us.

Behavior Consultations are for those people whose dog/dogs are experiencing specific and/or complex behavior struggles. Consultations allows us to dig deep to discover the root causes of the struggles you and your dog are experiencing. From our consultation with you and evaluation of your dog, we will then develop a training plan and behavior work program designed to address these struggles.  Consultations are not a “one time fix” all meeting. Instead, these lay the foundation for ongoing work to be done. 

Consultation Cost: 295.00   Consults last 90 minutes (occasionally more).

Any dog may take the Canine Good Citizen test upon completion of our CGC workshop. The workshop cost is $185.00. Cost includes the CGC Evaluation when passed. Workshop does not guarantee a passing score.

Confused about which breed is right for you, your family, and your life-style???  We can help. In addition, most people do not know what questions should be asked of a breeder, what to look for in the puppy environment, how to recognize red flags or what red flags to even look for, and so much more.  At no time more than during the pandemic, have we seen more people getting the wrong puppy or rescue dog and for the wrong reasons. When families choose a round key to fit their square lock, the results can be devastating and heartbreaking for all involved, including the puppy or shelter adoption. Contact us through the contact tab on this website to schedule your call or in-person consultation today. If you call us, please remember that this call is to schedule and not to confer.  We will schedule you and then answer your questions in the consultation.
