About Private Coaching Sessions

Private Lessons are flexible and convenient. Work within your own schedule. Get help with exactly what you need, from the right trainer for your priorities. We’ll structure the training around your goals, and you’ll work at your own pace.

Once you have selected the private session that best matches your needs and interests, you can add notes that tell us what is most important for you and your family to work on first and provide any other specifics you would like. We will structure the training plan around your goals.

Private coaching sessions take place at our facility. Session fees are $90 for each 50 minute session ($135 when a second trainer is required to handle a helper dog).

You will bring your dog to each session (with the exception of Really Reactive Private Session) along with a regular leash and collar or harness, some tasty treats and favorite toys, and your questions. All members of the family are welcome to attend.
