Training Packages:

For dogs that require more than a couple of sessions, a training package is a great deal!

Packages are only valid for 4 months from the day of purchase and doesn't include the initial session. This rule ensures accountability with the training journey and will help your dog receive attention it needs. Cancelled sessions with less than 24 hours notice will be applied as a full session (session lost).

The training sessions are packed with information and tools to achieve the your dog's training goals. The sessions in the package are 1-2 weeks apart. (to allow time for you to make progress). Just like individual sessions, they are followed up by an email and a follow up phone call.

2. "5 Pack" Five Sessions $550 (you save $75)

3. Intensive Training Program. Twelve Sessions $1250 (you save $250)

This program is designed for dog owners who have a busy schedule. This is a 4 week course where the trainer works with the dog three days a week teaching basic obedience, leash manners, dog socialization, and works on behavior modification. If you have a fearful, reactive, or hard to control dog this program is ideal for you!

Just like people, there are no two dogs who are the same. Dogs learn at different speeds. Please note, even a 4 week intensive program will require you to do some work so the newly learned behaviors will become second nature and unwanted behaviors will continue to fade away.

If by the end of this program your dog needs more work, a sliding scale discount will be offered. All following sessions will be $70 (60 min)
