“Head Start” In-Home Private Training

I work with your dog in multiple sessions per week, then with you and the dog together at agreed-upon intervals. Your dog learns the skills more quickly from an expert trainer, but you still learn how to train and interact with your dog to maintain desired behaviors, which is crucial for the long-term success of any training program. You can watch as many of the dog-only sessions as you like, or you can be at work. Includes 3 months email and phone support after the first session and customized summaries at the end of each week. 

Please contact me for rates and to customize a plan for your needs.
