It's usually best to start in your home.

Sometimes the solution is a simple change in your dog's routine or environment.


In home training works well for:

  • Puppy training at 8 weeks old.

  • Adolescent puppies.

  • New dog training, any age.

  • Behavior re-training

Add $45 to your price for dogs that bite, snap, nip, growl at humans.


You come to me.

We meet at my training space in Cotati or out on the town.  We meet places you want your dog to behave like a civilized canine citizen.



I coach you step by step.

I train,  then coach you.

Drop dogs off, I train, pick up later.

I personally work with your dog, during the day over at least a 3 hour period of time on a specific behavior.


This option is for dogs who need a little extra help.


It may be, learning a skill, over-coming a behavior challenge or to evaluate a dog you're thinking about adopting.


This is most effective after a few private sessions. You still need to practice and I'll show you how.


This day is not intended to erase your dog's issues; it is focused practice and detective work to figure out what methods or combination work best for your dog. 


Plan to stay 15 minutes when you pick-up so I can show you what to practice.


One day of training will not change your dog forever. You must practice to form good habits a make training part of every day life.
