Private training is a valuable resource when you prefer a one-to-one relationship with your trainer or if your dog is not comfortable in a classroom setting.
When a dog's needs go beyond the scope of basic obedience training, private training can eliminate added stressors which can make learning difficult or impossible.
In the case of fear or aggression issues, a careful evaluation must take place to assess the depth of the emotional and behavioral responses and in order to formulate a plan of action. This includes identifying triggers, systematic behavior modification, management, and other recommendations. Possible only through private, one-on-one sessions, a behavior modification plan begins with a comprehensive, holistic evaluation of the dog with the use of our customized behavior evaluation questionnaire followed by meeting with the dog and the family to get a complete picture. From there your dog's training/behavior modification plan will be provided for implementation.
Private training allows collaboration with other resources such as the family's veterinarian, dog walker, and other pet professionals, as well as with extended family members and frequent visitors to the home.
