Private lessons are tailored to your individual dog or dogs; and are a good option for dogs and humans that don’t want a group setting or when you have a behavior concern - such as anxiety, fearfulness, aggression, leash reactivity, or house specific manners (like door greetings). Lessons can be in person at your home or another location as discussed (another public place or at Canine Complex & Friends - the facility I partner with).
Virtual lessons are a good option for dogs that aren’t comfortable with strangers coming to their home (start virtually, practice some skills, and then we can meet in person to practice what you have learned!). They also work nicely for families working on ongoing training that requires meeting for an extended time, such as separation anxiety; or those on a budget.
When you schedule with me, you will receive some paperwork to complete that gives me more history and background on you and your dog(s). During your initial session (plan for about an hour, sometimes longer!), we will go over that paperwork, discuss what you want to work on, you can ask any questions, and then we will develop a training and management plan that you are comfortable with. After the initial session, I will email you a complete training plan and detailed notes on everything we covered during the session, with instructions on what to practice moving forward; as well as any other helpful hand outs or information (such as enrichment activities). If you choose to schedule more sessions, follow up’s are typically about 45-50 minutes long. We will review what you’ve worked on, chat about any issues that have come up, learn something new, practice together, and then review what to practice on your own. I will email brief notes after those sessions as well.
