Private Lessons

"Understanding your dog and knowing how to control him, develop his potentials, and resolve behavior problems, emotional conflicts and frustrations are no less essential than love and respect."  Michael W. Fox

If you feel you and your dog would benefit from one-on-one training, schedule private lessons! Private lessons provide the opportunity for you to get expert advice and help with your special needs. The focus can be on any aspect of training. Popular examples include:

Puppy selection consulting

Puppy training and socialization


Basic obedience

Integrating a second dog

Calming an anxious or fearful dog

Jumping up

Pulling on the leash

Play biting

Clicker training

...and more

Cheri , you gave us such a good foundation; you were always full of encouragement, hope and possibility. Your enthusiasm and expertise led us into new horizons and gave us ways to think through the thorny parts. Every time I'm stuck - how to approach a particular behavior quirk, or think my way through from A to B - I can hear you ask, 'What does the science say?'...and then throw in a funny comment about common sense.    Jeanne
