In-Home Puppy Training

Did you recently bring home a new puppy? With potty training, crate training, chew training, and socialization, are you wondering where to start? Let me take the guesswork out of training your new puppy! 

Why private puppy training?

Private puppy training allows me to work one on one with you on the issues you are facing that day. Instead of having to wait until week three of a group class syllabus  to discuss how to get your socks away from your 12 week old we can discuss the most pressing issues when they're happening to give you the solutions you need when you need them. 

How does it work?

Each new puppy client will schedule an hour and a half initial consult with me. At this consult we will discuss typical puppy behavior, how to socialize your puppy appropriately and safely, any issues you may be having, and typical puppy discussion items such as chew training, potty training, and crate training. 

At the initial consult we will discuss approximately how many sessions you might need and which package of follow up lessons to purchase

Pricing and Packages

Each initial consult is purchased as a stand alone and is $140.00 for an hour and a half and the follow up notes from our session. 

Follow up lessons are approximately 45-60 minutes. Follow up packages are priced as follows: 

  • 3 sessions: $295  Ideal for: Experienced puppy owners (this isn't your first rodeo!) with a few questions.

  • 5 sessions: $475  My most popular package. Ideal for: a complete good manners experience with a focus on puppy topics. 

  • 8 sessions: $750  Ideal for: the complete puppy package! This package allows us enough time to cover basic manners at home and in the real world as well as discuss all of the typical puppy "issues". The 8 session package can also carry you into adolescence which tends to be the most challenging time in a puppy's life. 

What's included?

Each consult and session includes handouts and homework notes in PDF format sent to your email account within 24-48 hours of your session. Notes include a step-by-step breakdown of each behavior we worked on during that session, solutions to any problem behaviors you're working on, and training tips and suggestions on how to practice.

Each purchased package also includes email and text correspondence at no additional charge between sessions. I'm always happy to discuss any troubles you may be having via email or phone.

And lastly, you have my guarantee that I will do my best to work with you and your puppy to find efficient, humane solutions to any behaviors you may be having trouble with, all while having fun and building your relationship in the process.
