Private Training

Serving All of Southeastern Wisconsin!

Travel over 30 miles from my home in Hartford may incur a travel fee.

Does your dog jump on you and your guests incessantly?  Not come when called?  Does she drag you down the street on walks?  Is he reactive on leash?  These are just a few examples of what I could help you with.  Give me a call, text, or send an email.  I’d be happy to discuss your needs with you! 

Private sessions are $130 for the first session which lasts about 1 1/2 hours.  The goal of the first session is to learn about you & your dog, discuss you & your dog’s needs and your training goals.  The first session also allows you to learn about my training techniques and to start the actual training process.  Following the first lesson you will be emailed a detailed training plan which includes any solutions we discussed, management techniques,  as well as any relevant handouts.  For some people, one session is enough to get their basic needs met and/or questions/concerns answered.  Email support between appointments and thereafter is always included (so even after our training session is finished you can always reach out to me for questions and advice!).  However, if more lessons are needed they can be arranged.  Follow up visits are $100 and last up to an hour each (unless a training package is purchased).

Training Packages

Have you brought your new family member home and are wondering “Now what?!?”  Have you considered classes but can’t commit to a particular day/time of the week?  A private training package might just be the thing for you.  

Private training packages are a perfect fit for many clients. Whether you just adopted a new puppy or adult dog and need to learn some of the basics or are dealing with behavioral issues, private training packages make life a bit easier. I can work around your schedule and have various options including weekdays, evenings and weekends.
