Private-in person

Sonoma County California


Brainy Dog-Cotati, CA

You come to Brainy Dog


I travel to you.

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.

In-your home training on hold due to Covid

Ask to be added to the board & train list to be started later in the year.

I train your dog

Sonoma County California


for three hrs.

I train, then coach you.


Drop dogs off, I train, you pick up later.

I  work with your dog while you run errands.


Plan to stay 15 minutes when you pick-up so I can transfer the new skill to you.

You practice the skill at home before your dogs next day-camp session.


Each dog gets about 1 hour of one-on-one time with me and my dogs.


Your dog can stay for 2 or 3 hours, depending on your scheduling needs.

This is FUN for you and your dog.

Design your own plan

A little of this and a little of that. What ever you want.

Know what you want, and just need help getting there? No problem.
