Training Programs

I offer private lessons at your home or any dog friendly public place.  I also offer board and trains.  My board and train dogs live in my home and learn their obedience along with proper house manners.  They will be treated as one of my own and expected to act as such. 


The question everyone asks, "what is my style?"  This isn't as clear cut as it seems.  With 20yrs of training experience I have become proficient in all styles, so I use that knowledge to work with the dog in front of me in whatever manner motivates that dog to work for me.  This isn't to say I don't correct.  I redirect when I can and I correct when needed.  Now, correct doesn't mean "hurt the dog" as many have in their head when they hear correct.   "Correct" may mean with hold a treat or toy until they do what was asked, or it may mean give pressure on a leash. It really depends on the dog and what they can handle.  I am never unbalanced in my praise or my correction.

Are PL's what I need?

Private lessons are good for home specific issues or if you need help with manners in public.  They are a good place to start with puppies or new additions to the pack as well.  

If you are still unsure you can always request a consultation for me to come out and see what's going on then help pick a program. 

Consultations are $35

Board and Trains

Remember your dog will be living with me for the entire program.  Before booking a board and train, every family is required to do a 30min consultation either via phone or in person to help decide which program would be best based on goals and realistic expectations.

I offer two programs for basic obedience and manners they last for 2 or 3 weeks, and both are great programs for dogs who have had no professional dog training previously. 

I also have an advanced program for 4 weeks.  This is for dogs that have had basic training and you now want off leash control.  For my off leash program all dogs must be 6mo minimum.  

My behavior modification or puppy foundations programs can be 4-6 weeks long depending on the behavior we are working on or how young your puppy may be. 

At the end of the training I will bring your dog home to you for the transfer.  I prefer doing this so I can see any hurdles you may face in their environment.   My programs also come with built in follow ups.  Follow ups may be used at any time for any training that was done.  

Programs and Pricing

2 week and 3 week


2 week- $1700


Above the basics:

3 week- $2550

Puppy Jumpstart:

3 week- $2550

What is taught in the 2 and 3 week?

Heel- walking on a loose leash

Sit, Down, Off, Place, Leave-it

Recall- in the backyard and house only

Remember this is not an off leash program so you will need a leash on your dog for them to comply until they learn you now know all of the commands and you will enforce them. 

The biggest difference between the 2 and 3 week programs are the amount of distractions your dog will learn to obey around.  Example if you live in a home with a lot going on the 3 week would benefit you the most.  But if it is just you and you have a lot of free time to work with your dog after returning home then the 2 week may work for you.  

What is taught in the puppy jumpstart?

Puppy jumpstart is exactly what it sounds like.  I will work on all the puppy basics like kennel training, 

Advanced Off Leash:

4 week- $3400

Your dog will learn all the commands above in the 2-3 week but on and off leash.  Along with a reliable recall off leash.  Some graduates of the 2-3 week program can come back for the advanced off leash and finish in 2-3 weeks if you have kept up with the training. 

6 week Behavior Modification or Puppy Foundations

6 week- $5100

What your dog learns in this program will depend on the behavior.  This program is most beneficial for the "out of control" dog that needs a firm reset on rules, boundaries and limitations. 

Puppy foundations is where I teach kennel training, house training, manners like no biting, no jumping and introductions to basic obedience.  The age and drive of the puppy will dictate what all is taught.   Any puppy that starts with this program will get discounts on any future programs, memberships and boarding.

To reserve a board and train, first, a consultation must be done.  After a program is decided on, a non-refundable deposit of 50% is due to hold your spot and the other 50% is due at check-in. I will email you all the training contracts needed and request your dog's vaccine and fecal records.   I am the only trainer so the limit is 5 per month so your training may not start right away. 

Please note that the training cost does not reflect any equipment needed. That will be billed at pick-up.
