The Lassie

If daily dog walks have become a source of stress, training can help. I’ll teach your dog to walk calmly with you past other dogs instead of all the growling, barking, and lunging. It’s time to enjoy your walks again!

Does your dog find it difficult to share her toys, chews, or spaces with canine or human family members? I’ll help her see there’s no reason for all the growling, snarling, or barking, and teach her that sharing is fun.

This program includes three training sessions for your dog per week with a certified trainer and one transfer session for you and your dog each week for a eight weeks. Plus lifetime support for the behaviors worked on from a certified trainer through email or phone.

Strategy Session

I come to your home at a time convenient to your schedule. We discuss your dog training goals and lay out a personalized, custom plan for reaching them. I’ll also help you understand why your dog is doing what he does (or not doing what you wish he would), and share simple tips to improve his behavior while you wait for the full results of training.

Training sessions with your dog

I come to your home at set intervals to train your dog. I’ll work with him in your home, neighborhood, or wherever issues are occurring or you need to see results. Watch me train if you like, but don’t feel you need to be there—head to work as usual or attend to other things on your busy schedule.

Transfer sessions to share results with you

We’ll meet weekly so I can teach your dog to do his new tricks for you, and show you how to make the most of the training I’ve done.
