Benefits of Private Training

Customization

Unlike group classes where there is a pre-determined curriculum, private training allows the flexibility and freedom to work on as much or as little as you'd like with your individual priorities being the goal. Private training is suitable for all dogs, for any reason, whereas group classes are not always the best choice for every dog or person to be able to get the most out of a training session. 

Low Distraction

Contrary to what you may hear, it's best to start training new skills and behaviours in a very low distraction environment to give you and your dog the best chance of achieving the first level of learning - acquisition - faster. In group classes, whether it's another person or dog distracting you, or the other way around, private training removes this frustration entirely. Starting in a low distraction setting allows you and Fido to focus so that progress can be made rapidly by having installed a solid response with the new behaviour(s) being taught before moving training into more challenging contexts.

Self-Paced

Pace is determined by you and your dog alone. If your dog needs more time, or needs smaller incremental steps with a more difficult behaviour, that's what we do! If you want to schedule a training session twice a week, once a week, or once every two weeks - the choice is yours. As long as you are practicing outside of training sessions based on the trainer's recommendations, the flexibility private training provides can't be beat. 

"Tech" Support

Private training programs include phone, email, or video support throughout the duration of your program and for up to 60 days following for questions relating to the topics covered by your training program.
