Let's train your dog together!


Your goals are important to us. Private sessions allow us to reach those goals and address your needs quicker than group classes. We will focus on the things you want your dog to do and start reinforcing those great behaviors! Depending on your comfort level, coaching can be conducted in person or online.


Our private coaching is for anyone at any skill level. Whether you're a first time dog or new puppy guardian, have attended a beginner class and want to work at your own pace without the demands of weekly classes and homework, or have a dog that freaks out at the vet or groomer, we can get you on your way with solid foundation behaviors and quick successes. We offer flexible scheduling and relief for minor behavior or manners issues*.

We offer an approach that is less structured, and more DIY, meaning you have control over your own training program. We also take into consideration that not everyone has the same learning style and will craft your package according to your needs.

  • 45-60-minute sessions; can be virtual or in-person 

  • First session for all new clients is a virtual, introductory session to go over positive reinforcement methods, mechanics, and tools and to introduce a couple of foundation behaviors to get you started on your goals or management techniques to bring you quick relief!

  • Flexible scheduling 

  • Actionable, personalized training plan   

  • Weekly email check-in  

  • Ability to send or upload video for quick feedback 

  • Continued access to once-a-week email support for one month after end of package 

  • Increased confidence 

  • Faster results 



*What are minor behavior or manners issues?   

Inappropriate chewing; housesoiling; barking at door, at visitors, at garbage truck, etc; jumping; ignoring handler; interspecies conflict; mild resource guarding; handling, grooming or confinement issues. These behaviors typically occur in the home and are less complicated than the issues addressed in our Relaxed Rover program.

Want to fine-tune your dog training? Work towards a trick title or specific goal? Need reassurance that your management plan is working? For those who have worked with us in the past or already have intermediate or more advanced training skills, we do offer an hourly, pay-as-you-go rate. Hourly coaching does not provide the same level of feedback in between sessions as our packages and programs. You must contact us directly and have prior approval in order to book hourly coaching

We are pleased to offer sliding scale options to those in need.

How do I choose between virtual and in-person?

We'll be sure to discuss these two options in your initial consultation.

The upside of in-person training is

  • Your dog has a chance to socialize

  • We can easily switch locations if we choose to do outdoor work or move to another room in the house

  • Your dog can better learn to work around distractions

The upside of virtual training is

  • Fewer distractions for dogs who are concerned about their environments or anxious around new people

  • Scheduling is more flexible

  • Your handler skills sharpen while you're in the role of teacher and guide for your dog and not the trainer

  • Pajamas are optional and you don't have to clean the house before the trainer arrives :)

What do I need to get started? 
  • Initial consultation is required for all new clients

  • A clicker, treat bag, harness, 6’ leash and optional biothane long line (15-20 feet) 

  • Treats (pea-sized and of varying value

  • Other tools like toys, mats, dog beds, baby gates, will be determined during initial consultation 

  • Virtual clients must have access to a well-lit quiet space with room to move around and the ability to use a laptop or computer with a camera during sessions. Smartphone cameras are not advisable as it will be difficult to view your coach's visual instructions in real-time.

Please be advised that we are currently not qualified to handle major aggression cases or instances where professionally diagnosed separation anxiety is your only concern. Most trainers are not, despite offers to “fix” your dog. If your dog is truly aggressive or poses a threat to itself, other humans or animals and/or has a history of biting, we will be able to refer you to a highly qualified individual or business. Or feel free to search on your own for a certified and qualified behaviorist here and here.If you would still like to discuss your dog and have us help you determine your options, please feel free to book a consult.
