We offer plenty of options, such as in-home lessons, off property field trips or virtual chats (phone or Zoom).

  • Initial Private Consultation: $185 (1- 1 and half hours)
  • Follow Private Lessons: $125 (1 hour)
  • Virtual Chats: $75 (1 hour)

What To Expect During A Consult

All consultations will focus on you and your dog’s needs, we can cover any questions, concerns and design a training plan together. After each consultation, we will send you additional information pertaining to behaviors taught during your consult.

In home consults:

Most in-person consultations last 1 hour, and it’s the perfect time for us to meet you and your dog and discuss your training goals. There’s certainly a benefit to in home consultations; we are able to observe your dog’s behavior and provide advice in a distraction free environment. Also, it’s a great way to problem solve behaviors that happen only at home.

Off property consults:

This is a great way to practice behaviors around lots of distractions, this is a great way to teach “come”, “loose leash walking”, “look at me”, “strangers make good things happen” and so forth. We will consult with you first, then decide on a safe off property area to meet up and have some fun!

Virtual consults:

With technology, we can successfully and inexpensively address any concerns virtually. With apps, such as Zoom or FaceTime, we can virtaully meet a client and discuss and immediately address any behavior problems quickly. As experienced dog trainers, we don’t need to “see” the issue to successfully create a training plan.

Additionally, virtual consults can:

  • Easily fit into anyone’s schedule
  • We’re able to view the dog in his/her “normal” environment.
  • Eliminate travel time (esp beneficial for dogs that dislike car rides)
  • Less expensive option with certified and experienced dog trainers.
