Private Adult Training

One on One in Person Coaching

For Dogs Over 5 Months

Whether you raised your dog from a puppy or adopted them later in life, it’s never too late to teach them how to safely and appropriately co-exist in your home and help them learn how to live confidently in the ever-changing world. 

With private training, whether in person or virtual, we will go over how to train new desirable behaviours and teach you how to properly manage unwanted behaviours using effective positive reinforcement methods. 

If your dog is experiencing leash frustration, aggression or fearplease visit the Behaviour Modification page

(Sit, Down, Stand, Eye Contact, Touch)

House Manners

(Greetings, Counter Surfing, Settle etc.)

Day Training: let us take some of the pressure off you. Your trainer will come to your home and work one on one with your dog on the same skills you practice in private lessons, the added bonus? You don't have to be there for the session and we fill you in on the progress when we finish! This service is only available with pre-booked packages.

Day Training is only available within the Tri-Cities and subject to availability

Not sure where to start? Start with our comprehensive consultation where we answer your questions about positive training, what a typical day looks like, what your goals are, come up with a plan & begin teaching a minimum of 2 cues (new behaviours).

What to expect when you book with us

Each package will begin with a Comprehensive Consultation which is generally around 60 minutes, though we recommended being prepared for up to 90 minutes as need more time in some cases.

Consultations are designed so we can get to know you, your dog & your routines and so we can build a plan to fit your lifestyle. They are also great if you are unsure where to begin as we can then make a recommendation for an appropriate training package to fit your needs.

When we meet, we start by looking at your dog’s daily routine and see if we need to make any adjustments. From there we will discuss your current challenges to get a solid understanding of what is going on.

Next, we set some goals, management strategies and begin creating a custom training plan.

We finish by going over the training plan to ensure it is manageable for you, show demonstrations where needed, answer any last questions and go over any homework to get started on before receiving your follow up notes and training plan via email.

Before we finish, we will book in your follow up appointment(s) if not done previously. It is recommended to book follow ups 1-2 weeks apart.

After the consultation, you will receive a training plan with step by step instructions, handouts and other educational tools. This will be sent within 4-5 days of your appointment unless otherwise specified.

We recommend writing down any questions before we arrive and also encourage taking notes, however, that is not required!

 

Follow ups

Follow ups are done in person and can be indoor or outdoor, though outdoor is preferred at this time (masks are required for all sessions throughout the pandemic)

Your first follow up is generally booked 1 week after your consultation.

Additional follow-up lessons are generally scheduled 1-2 weeks apart for puppies & basic manners

(potty training, recall. leash manners, door manners, etc)

They are great for those of you who prefer hands on help with the implementation of the training plan, have multiple skills to work on, refining your dog training skills or keeping on track with your training plan with pre-booked appointments.
