Private Instruction


In the privacy of your own home or yard $45/hour


Sometimes it's better to conduct training in the comfort of your own home.  This way, the instructor can give you undivided attention and customized advice.  Popular services include obedience training, finding solutions for problem behaviors and housebreaking.  Some clients just need reassurance that they are approaching things the correct way.  

Discount for Rescues

Within the first 6 months of adopting, you may take 50% off your first instruction.  Proof of rescue/adoption is required.
