We now offer virtual training sessions to get you started on training right away! Sessions are held online through video chat, and offer you the same expertise and guidance that you would receive in person. You will receive immediate feedback on your training during the session, and you can submit video for feedback between sessions to keep on track with training. Some sessions in your training package can be reserved for in-person appointments, which will be booked when government restrictions on in-person work have been lifted.

Private training sessions are an ideal choice for problems ranging from fear and aggression to basic obedience. Whatever the issue, the trainer will work with you to address your concerns and will continue to support you after the consultation.

  • Basic obedience
  • Jumping
  • Barking
  • Mouthing
  • Destruction
  • Fear
  • Aggression
  • Anxiety
  • Body handling
  • Over-excitement

What to Expect

After you register, the trainer will get in touch with you by email to book your first video chat appointment. Initial consultations are two hours long and will include information and coaching from your trainer as they guide you through the steps of training your dog. You will also have the opportunity to provide your trainer with video to review in between sessions so they can make sure you’re on the right track! Completing assigned homework and continued practice will be essential to success.

All follow-up consultations are one hour long and generally involve more hands-on work than the first session. Your trainer will make changes to the training plans if needed and will make sure that you have the knowledge and skills you need to continue moving forward with your pet. A minimum of two consultations must be booked so that the trainer has the opportunity to assess progress and make changes to the training plan.

At this time, all sessions are being held over video chat due to the pandemic restrictions in place. Some sessions in the package can be reserved for in-person work at a later date. Session lengths may be shortened or lengthened to accommodate for the unusual circumstances, but any extra time will be added on to the end of the training package.

Choosing a Training Package

The amount of sessions you need will vary depending on the issues you’d like to work on and the level of support you prefer. If your dog needs work on multiple issues, or you want to work with multiple dogs in your household, you may need a larger training package (if you’re unsure, please get in touch with us before registering to let us know what training your dogs need). Fear and aggression problems require a minimum of four sessions.

Regardless of the training package you choose, at-home work and continued practice throughout your dog’s life will be essential to success.
