Private lessons and consultations are done in your own home or a facility that you provide. The trainer comes to you and works one on one with you and your pet(s). Private lessons can always be added on or combined with group classes to ensure that all your training needs and concerns are met.


First time consultation is 1/2 hour minimum for $40.48+ Applicable Tax (Most sessions are one hour). Normally a consultation leads directly into a training session so most people choose to do a 1 hour session the first time.

Hourly rate is $80.95 +Applicable Tax/hour.

My consultation with you will be in your home with you and your dog. I will ask you questions and observe your dog... and you. I will then outline my recommendation for the type of training I think you and your dog needs, how the training will occur, and the frequency and logistics of training.

Puppy programs for those under 6 months generally do not need a consultation unless you are dealing with an abnormal behavioral issue.

Please contact to book your session.
