Personal in Home Training
This is one the most convenient service. Where we come to your home and do all the training. This is preferred for clients with a busy schedule. Private in Home sessions are necessary for dogs with behavioral issues that need to be addressed. Our programs are designed to not only help deal with the issues at hand but to also set a solid foundation for the dog. The Private In Home Program starts with an Initial Consultation that runs about 1 1/2 hours. The cost of an initial consultation is $125. This appointment will be conducted at your home. We will go over all the issues you are having and talk about possible reasons for the behavior. I use this information to create your custom training plan in which you will receive a copy of via email within 1 week of the initial consultation. We will then decide what plan is best for you wether you are a candidate for a 4-6 week program or want to pay sessions as we go. At any rate the cost of sessions are $105. This will include different levels of training and socialization. In most cases if a program is the chosen plan the Initial Consultation will be waved and the program starts the first day. Programs rates are discounted if paid in full. The rate for the programs are: 4 Sessions are $350, 6 Sessions are $500.
