An experienced trainer works hands-on with you and your dog.
Customized lessons bring faster results. At our kennel or at your home.
In private lessons, our focus is completely on you and your dog. With ample time for an in-depth assessment of your dog, we’ll help you understand how to read and interpret your dog’s behaviour. You’ll gain lasting insights into the how your dog perceives situations, and with them, an ability to become a team where you are the pack leader.
There are always two students in private lessons: your dog, and you. First, we work with your dog in order to familiarize them with the new learning environment and commands. Then we guide you in doing the same basic routines. It’s subtle work, and so we pace it for absolute success and confidence. Often, we start with basic obedience work. However, soon we may add in ways to fix a particular problem behaviour.
While basic teaching methods and lessons are a proven standard, each private class is a program designed around your specific topics and goals, such as basic obedience training, specialty skills such as tracking. or fixing a problem behaviour. This is typically the fastest and most comprehensive way for you and your dog or puppy to learn.
These lessons are particularly useful if you are having a problem with your dog’s behavior such as people or dog aggression. The trainer has much more time to work directly with your dog to understand their behavior and to demonstrate the correction. In addition, you can consult with the trainer about any and all life situations that are causing problems and plan how to avoid or fix them.
If you have more than one dog or you wish to come with a friend to train for general obedience and/or specific behaviours, semi-private lessons can be arranged with a curriculum tailored to address your specific training needs. Flexible appointment times.
Half hour private assessment- Great Value:
We also will provide a half hour private assessment of your dog at the centre. This is an excellent and economical way to receive your own personal evaluation and training recommendations.
Please email or call for any further information. The lessons are done in the great outdoors when possible; therefore students should dress for weather conditions. If the weather does not permit doing the lessons outside then they will be done inside in the loft of the barn.
