“There’s No Place Like Home!”  (Dorothy Gale & Toto, 1939)

After many years of teaching group classes more and more owners have asked me for an easier way to get a well-trained dog. I believe the answer is having me come to you rather than having you, the owner, travel to a group class.

Advantages include:

  • Lessons can be scheduled at the best time for the owners & can be adjusted week to week.
  • It’s easier to have more family members present & involved in the dogs training.
  • Puppies and dogs are calmer when they are in their home enviorment so they learn easier.
  • Home training is easier for nervous or shy dogs.
  • Personalized lessons for your dog.  We focus on the skills that are important to you.
  • No set number of lessons, you get as many lessons as you want.
  • There are morning, afternoon, evening and weekend options.
  • Lessons are not limited to exactly an hour.
