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.

for three hrs.

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 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.


This adds up to about 1  hour of hands on training. I want dog here 3 hours so he/she can takes play breaks.

There will be no more than 3 dogs in the same 3 hour time period.
