Private Puppy Training

With private puppy training you receive personalized attention and coaching to help your pup get off to a perfect start. Private training is recommended when:

  • You need help with behavior problems such as fear, anxiety, aggression, or unusually difficult house training situations.
  • Your schedule or situation prevents participation in our group classes.
  • You have specific training goals, such as service dog tasks, that go beyond our group class curriculum.
  • You have very small children who you want involved in the training process.
  • You want to build a foundation with private training before coming into our Puppy Kindergarten class.
  • Your dog is too young (i.e. under 10 weeks) for group class.

Cost: $125 (approx. 1 hour); sessions may be held at our center or your home*

* Additional rates apply to Durham, Paradise, Magalia, Hamilton City, and other areas.

Please note: We strongly believe that the best ongoing training experience for your puppy are our group puppy classes which builds your relationship with your puppy while building a platform of positive socialization. We do not consider private training to be a substitute for these very important group classes.
