What are the benefits of private in-home dog training?

Click the paws for details!

Set your dog up for success! Learning anything new, even for adults, takes concentration; therefore, learning it in an environment where your dog is comfortable and has only the usual distractions is ideal!

Let the trainer come to you! Less time traveling so that you can build it more easily into your personal life! After all, dogs are part of the family!

In traditional training classes, your instructor divides their attention between all the student teams; with private in-home training, all of my attention is on you! That means I ensure you fully understand the training principles so that you can apply them to new situations later in your dog’s life.

Perhaps you need to focus on basic manners, more advanced skills, household-specific issues, need help with a reactive or shy dog, or want to learn trick training! While traditional classes have a pre-set general curriculum, private in-home training is tailored to your training goals, so that you can move at your own pace!

For dogs that are shy, fearful, or reactive towards other dogs or strangers, starting with private in-home training and building toward strategic training around triggers can be a lifesaver!

Traditional classes require a certain amount of vaccinations due to being in spaces with other dogs. Private training is in your home and therefore vaccinations are not an issue. PLUS we will cover things many traditional puppy classes fail to address!

Whether you want the best start with your puppy, to have a dog with impeccable manners, or solve behavior issues, above all, know that I am committed to teaching the most compassionate, humane, and scientifically-sound strategies.

I hope I can be of help!
