By adding a ton of structure into your dog's day (leadership exercises, the structured walk, crating your dog, the place command, and limiting affection, you will actually start to see a calmer dog with less behavioral issues that understands that you are the pack leader. 

Private Lessons

The private lessons can address a lot of issues in addition to teaching basic obedience.  3 lessons is really a ‘crash course.’  In a package of 5 lessons we can do more and get you more up to speed with everything. 


We’ll be going over the mechanics of the training, the philosophy and anything in your relationship/household with your dog that I notice that could be tweaked to make things better.  All of the training is based off of creating a tighter structured lifestyle with your dog that helps your dog to understand that you make the decisions and are the pack leader. 


If your dog is having more serious behavioral issues, its best if you drop your dog off with me at my house (for part of the 1st lesson and/or 2nd lesson). This is because dogs have old associations with owners that often feed into unwanted behaviors.


All lessons are 90 minutes. For behavioral issues, the sessions can be booked closer together so that your dog can retain as much information as possible

3 lessons : $750

Add-on Lessons: $150

*Price includes a Mini Educator e-collar, and a Herm Sprenger prong collar. These tools are requirements in my training program.

Three Day Board & Train

This is what I recommend if your dog is having more serious behavioral issues. In this package your dog lives with me in my home for 3 days. I only take in 1 client dog at a time. I am able to accomplish a lot in this time and give your dog highly focused attention, address any behavioral issues and their over-all state of mind.

In this package, I get your dog into a better mental state. However, I have to show you how to “be the dog trainer,” and how to continue the training and structure once you bring your dog home. That’s because it takes months to re-pattern behaviors.

Your dog will get at least 3 training sessions with me per day including potty breaks and walks. Your dog will be crated with me when they are not working, and if they are not crate trained that is something I can work on. 

On the last day I give you a 90 min lesson when you pick up your dog. I will also give you 3 more 90 min lessons which we can do at your house or mine (that’s 4 lessons total with me). It’s best to schedule at least one of those the first week after you bring them home.

The training sessions will include basic obedience, and I will introduce the prong collar and e-collar to your dog.  


We will also work on:
