Private, Personalized Training

Training, any way you like it. Private training targets your individual goals in your time, at your pace.

All of our private packages allow you the flexibility to choose the modality of each session best suited for you, your dog and your goals. We have three main ways we conduct private sessions.

 

In Person

There is no place like home. At home training allows the Canine Behavior Consultants to observe your dog in their natural environment and cater to your specific needs. Let us come to you to help you, have a better relationship with your Canine Companion, regardless of their breed or age. Training comes easier to a dog that does not have distractions in the comfort of their own home. We can also meet with you in a park or other local location to target training.

 

***Due to COVID, we are not entering clients' homes. Rather, we will meet you in your yard or a park, so as to remain outdoors, wearing masks***

 

Remote Training

Online training is only a click away. There is no need to download anything, create an account log in, or pay additional fees. If you need coaching on how to use the virtual technology, we are able to guide you and practice with you, FREE of charge. All you need is an internet connection and a device like a phone, laptop or tablet. If you do not have these items available, we are also available by phone to assist you with you canine companion.

 

Online dog training is just as effective as in person training. Remember, we are training you, to train your dog! We will provide you detailed instructions during our sessions and in writing after. We will demonstrate with our own dogs and then we will coach you and observe you training your dog. We are available to review videos of you training your dog or view videos of any behaviors you want to share with us.

FAQ

 

Do you need to see the behaviors we are concerned about to help?

Most of the time we do not need to see the behaviors as long as you can describe them.  We encourage our clients to send us videos of behaviors they are concerned about and their training sessions with their dogs, as long as it is safe to do so. We have been doing this work since 2007 and have seen most of the behaviors pet parents are concerned about.

 

I think I want to wait. Is that a bad thing?

It can be if your dog is practicing the behaviors you want to eliminate. It may take a bit longer and more time to get the outcomes you want. Also, the more the unwanted behaviors are practiced, the better the dog gets at them, making them harder to change.

 

Do I need to download any software, create a log in, and provide a password for remote training?

No, you just need to click on the link we send you and follow the onscreen instructions.

 

I am not good with computers. How will I be able to do the distance training?

We are happy to teach you how to navigate tele-training for FREE! We are happy to meet with you prior to your scheduled session and talk through how to do this on the phone while you are in front of your computer.

 

How do you train dogs online?

We are actually training you! “We train dogs one human at a time using positive research based methods.” We will describe and explain the behavior modification techniques. We can demonstrate with our own dogs or a demo dog and may show you a short video clip for some behaviors. Then, most importantly, we watch you train your dog. We then coach you as needed.

 

What do I need to train my dog online?

You will need a device with a camera (smartphone, tablet, or computer), stable internet, your dog, and your dog’s favorite treats.

 

What if my internet is not stable?

Then we would recommend a phone session and not a video session. We can also meet with you in person or in our studio.

 

Does my family need to be present?

Your family does not need to be present but we recommend that anyone who is involved with the training of your canine companion be present so everyone can ask questions and be on the same page. Consistency with training is important.
