Initial Consultation-How to Begin:
Tell us your dog’s behavior history so we provide the best customized training plan to meet your goals. You won’t be distracted by your dog’s behavior as we gather information. We will provide you with immediate suggestions for your concerns. The call is typically 30-45 minutes. Pricing: $50 as a stand alone. ($200 includes both a Phone Consult and In Home Evaluation of your dog or dogs.)
IN HOME EVALUATION
After your phone consult, we meet with you in your home for an hour visit with your dog(s). What is causing your dog’s behavior? How can you keep yourself and others safe? What is your dog trying to tell you? How does your dog respond to training? These are all the questions we answer at the in home assessment. Plus we demonstrate the training and you will receive easy to follow homework handouts and a training plan after the session. No additional obligation is required. Some families only need the two part consultation to address their concerns about their dog's behavior.
Why we offer initial consultations in 2 parts: We have found that it is much more efficient to gather information by phone first. We are not distracted by a dog who may be distressed while we try to get a full behavior history. We arrive to your home fully prepared to help you as quickly as possible. You can speak freely about your dog’s behavior during the phone consultation and not be distracted by your dog’s discomfort or unruly behavior.s

INTENSIVE TRAINING IN YOUR HOME
Our Intensive packages allow us to train your dog quickly and efficiently because our professional staff does most of the direct training with your dog. Unlike traditional Board and Train programs, we meet with your dog in private lessons in your home 3 times a week, teaching your dog the skills you need. Then we meet with you, so we can transfer the skills your dog has learned with us to you.
3 Week Intensive Package - $1,020 for 12 lessons (one trainer present). Best when we are training 2-3 behavior skills for dogs that are not fearful or showing aggressive behavior. if your dog shows fearful or aggressive behavior, training may progress at a slower rate.
5 Week Intensive Package - $1,600 for 20 lessons (one trainer present). Best when we need to work on all the basic obedience skills for a well-mannered companion and your dog is not showing fearful or aggressive behavior. if your dog shows fearful or aggressive behavior, training may progress at a slower rate.
For households with multiple dogs selecting either day training option, there is an additional $50 fee per visit to guarantee a second trainer for each training session.
Our monthly membership training (MMT) sessions are ideal for dogs that will need support over a period of time. This is a great option for families with young puppies who will be developing and maturing until they are adults. Getting support for your dog’s training during the most challenging time of a dog’s life (from puppyhood through adolescence) will help you build a foundation for a lifetime companion. This is also a good option for dogs who have complicated or long-standing behavior issues that will need continuing practice.
MMT 1: 2 lessons per month - $160
MMT 2: 4 lessons per month - $320
Special Membership Policies: 1) We ask for a 2 month commitment to a membership then you can cancel at any time. 2) If you need to cancel a scheduled lesson we will do our best to find a make-up spot for you but make-up lessons are not guaranteed so cancelled lessons may be lost if an alternative cannot be found.
