Training Packages

Once you purchase your package, we’ll contact you to match you with the trainer who specializes in the area and will get you scheduled for your first session. And no worries, if you and your trainer decide at any point that switching to a different type of service than the one you signed up for (in-facility, online, in-home, or group training), may be a better option for you and your dog, you’ll be able to modify your package at any time. 

You will also have the option to continue with individual training sessions or purchase an additional package once your consultation package is complete. Have questions? Contact us! We’re happy to help you decide which option might be best for you and your dog.

Private training consultation

All training starts with a 90-minute training consultation where your trainer will get to know you, your dog, your training goals, and get you started with hands-on training. During this consultation, your trainer will:

 

  • Take an in-depth history
  • Identify the root cause of your dog’s behavior
  • Help you better understand your dog and their behavior
  • Work with you to create a plan that addresses your dog’s individual needs and goals
  • Begin hands-on training, focusing on key foundation behaviors that will lay the groundwork for success in training and begin to address your primary goals
  • Clearly outline your dog’s training roadmap so you have a solid understanding of where your dog is, where they’re going, and what steps you’ll take to progress and stay on track as you work together in training
  • Finally, we’ll email you your customized training and behavior plan after your session, which will include a recap of what you worked on, your written homework to track progress, and your training roadmap and plan so you can review at any time.
Ongoing training sessions

Ongoing training sessions provide you with hands-on, individualized support as you work through your training plan. In these sessions, we’ll continue to build on and skyrocket your training skills, make sure you and your dog stay on track, and will help you stay ahead of or prevent any potential challenges.
