Private Lessons

Private lessons have the advantage of giving you and your dog more one on one instruction time. In addition to this, private lessons are sometimes preferred for the very difficult dog, or simply solving a minor problem or two.

HOUSE TRAINING

Sometimes it's tough to get a dog house trained reliably, and dog's are frequently given up because of this.  I can help. With a one on one consultation I will give you the right "tools" needed to reliably get your dog house trained (potty trained) in no time! The session takes approximately 1 -1.5hrs  and includes written handouts as well as phone or email help after our meeting.

Cost = $75.00 HST Included

STRUCTURED OBEDIENCE LESSONS - PRIVATE

A full 6 weeks of obedience lessons for either puppies or adult dogs. See our Obedience Class Descriptions page for more info on the courses that can also be offered privately.

This includes written handouts and unlimited support via email throughout the training session. Many behavioural problems can be solved by structured obedience lessons. Private lessons are ideal for difficult dogs, people that can not make it to evening classes, or people with difficult schedules as private lesson times can be flexible.  Cases of aggression should usually be handled through private lessons. Once you have completed Basic Level II results are guaranteed in the form of free lessons until you're satisfied with the outcome. 

Cost = $450.00 for 6 Lessons. HST Included


PREPARING FOR PUPPY

Bringing home a puppy is a big step in your life, and one that should not be taken lightly. This is a very exciting time, but you want to be sure to do it right. I can help give you a head start to make things as easy as possible for you. This can be done either before getting a puppy, after, or both.

  • Spay / Neuter- When is the right time?

BREED SELECTION                                                                                                                                                 

Not all dogs are the same, and it's very important to pick the right dog for your family's lifestyle. Often people will pick a breed simply because they like the cute dog they've just seen on T.V. They go out and get a puppy without researching the breed and later realize that the cute Border Collie pup is really not working out so well with their relatively calm lifestyle, or the Yorkshire Terrier may not have been the best choice for their active hiking and camping lifestyle.


I can meet with you to discuss the pros and cons of different breeds before you get your puppy. I can also help advise you on how to find a good breeder, and what you should be expecting from the breeder.
