Private Training: When, What, Where

 

When is In-Home Behavior Training Needed?

Private, in-home behavior training is needed to modify behaviors which only happen in the home environment or certain situations that cannot be duplicated in a classroom. Private training allows the trainer to provide an individualized plan specific to your dog and environment.

Examples of Those Behaviors:

  • Aggressive behavior toward guests
  • Housemate Aggression
  • Aggression toward family members
  • Aggression on walks (leash aggression)
  • Separation Anxiety
  • Resource Guarding

Other Good Uses for Private Sessions:

  • Pre-puppy appointment
  • New dog introductions
  • Potty Training - We also offer Potty Training Phone Consultations. Click here for details!
  • House manners: door greetings, jumping, counter surfing
  • Children interactions
  • Cat and Dog harmony in the house
  • Training in the comfort of your home and schedule

 

What is an Initial In-Home Training Session Like?

With your initial in-home training session, we will take the time to fully understand your dog, personal situation, an environment to customize a training solution that works best for you and your dog. From the very first lesson, you will receive and practice training solutions that will make a difference. Initial training sessions are typically 1.5 hours.


 
Follow-up Training

Optional follow-up training enables us to make sure you are executing the training properly and skillfully, and allows us to make adjustments based on how your dog responds. With multiple sessions of in-home training, we can also break down the training into smaller, more manageable pieces that build on one another to get the end result.

While follow-up training is your choice, we feel so strongly it will create the best result that we discount follow up lessons over 20% to encourage you to do so.


 
Where?

We will either come to your home or where the problem behavior occurs (like at a public walking area for leash aggression). We travel almost the entire Twin Cities metro area. Please see the Pricing & Payment section for more details!

If you live further out in Minnesota (St. Cloud, Duluth, etc), or you are from another state, we would be happy to schedule a private session at one of our facilities to meet and work with your dog.

Common Questions:

 

Q: How do I know how many sessions I need?
A: Some issues require only one session to teach you the tools necessary to correct the behavior, while other behaviors may benefit from additional follow up sessions. You can decide if you need additional sessions with the help of your trainer at the end of your first session.

Q: When are you available?
A: A: Trainers are available for in-home training mostly Monday through Friday, morning, afternoons, and evenings. We have very limited weekend appointment times available.

Q: If I have two dogs, does the rate change?
A: No, the session rate (either initial or follow up) will be the same.
