PRIVATE

COACHING

Private Coaching Sessions:

For puppies and dogs 5 months and older.  

For some puppies and dogs, and even some humans, group classes can be too distracting or stressful, resulting in anxiety and frustration which impede learning.  Or perhaps your dog knows the basics, but you’d like help with preventing, managing or resolving some issues. With Private Coaching, you get focussed, one-on-one attention in the comfort of your home.  The minimum number of sessions for Private Coaching is two: an initial consultation and one follow-up.  During the initial consultation, we will identify what you’d like to achieve, create an action plan, and start working toward your desired goal.  In the follow-up we will refine technique and solidify your understanding of how to proceed on your own.  The total number of sessions needed will depend on your goals and your dog’s training needs which we will discuss in our first meeting.  All family members are encouraged to participate.

LOCATION:  Your home and neighbourhood.    

COST:  $175  Includes:

  • Initial 90-minute consultation

  • One 1-hour follow-up session

  • $65 per 1-hour session thereafter
