Private Dog Training

1- ON -1 

Dedicated individualized training, coaching, and support

Get one-on-one attention and a customized holistic training plan designed specifically around the needs and wants of both you and your dog. A certified professional trainer counsels you privately at our training centre how to implement the training plan in daily life and works with you on perfecting your own training mechanics to help speed up progress. This program is a great option for taking a proactive approach with your new puppy, or achieving any training goals with your teen or adult. It is especially suited for clients who are experiencing common or complex behaviour issues with their dog.

Benefits of Private Training


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 popular belief, it's best to start teaching new 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 that is the source of distraction or you and your dog who are the ones distracting others, private training removes this parametre entirely allowing you and Fido to concentrate and progress more rapidly in the early stages with laying a solid understanding of the new behaviour(s) being taught.


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 and homework, the flexibility private training provides can't be beat. 

"Tech" Support

Private training programs include phone, email, or video call support throughout the duration of your program and for up to 60 days following for questions relating to the priorities established during our initial consultation.

An initial assessment is completed either in person at our training centre, or virtually, to gather detailed information about the current situation, lifestyle, aspirations for Fido and ensure our compatibility.

Together we’ll come up with a plan that’s right for you! Our in-depth discussion will allow us to determine goals and the strategies we will use, align expectations, establish the time investment, frequency and most efficient format for training delivery.
