Dogs big day out

Sonoma County California


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.


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