Training Packages:

For dogs requiring more than a few sessions, our training packages offer great value.

Packages are valid for three months from the date of purchase and do not include the initial evaluation session. This rule ensures accountability throughout the training journey, providing the attention your dog needs. Cancellations with less than 48 hours  notice will be considered a full session (session lost).

  1. "3 Pack" - Three 60 min Sessions for $340 (Save $35) This package is ideal for dogs that have some prior training or for individuals with previous experience in dog training.

-recourse guarding





Just like people, no two dogs are the same, and they learn at different speeds. Please note that even with a four-week intensive program, you will need to put in effort to ensure newly learned behaviors become second nature while unwanted behaviors fade away.

If your dog requires further training after completing the program, we offer a sliding scale discount. Subsequent sessions will be priced at $70 per 60-minute session plus you will be able to attend 3 leash manners group classes at no cost.

We understand that every dog deserves personalized attention. Contact Active Dogzz today to schedule your dog's training sessions and provide them with the best care they deserve.
