Private Lessons

Frustrated with your dog jumping on visitors, barking at the doorbell, or general lack of manners? Do you have a dog that is too worked up for a group class or has issues with new people or other dogs? We can help! Our one on one training sessions and in home service options take the frustration and scheduling issues out of dog training.

Step 1: Initial Consult

All private training sessions start with an in-depth consultation where we assess your puppy or dog  and your goals for them. After we review your goals and challenges we start with some training exercises to start you on your path to reach your goals. After the consult lesson we follow up with emails to check on your progress and offer supplemental training tips and resources.  The initial consultation for most sessions is 60-75 mins and the cost is $83 for an in home consult/lesson or $72 if the consult/lesson is held at Down Dog Studio. 

Step 2: Training Program

The number and pace of the private training sessions varies depending on the goals for your dog and the amount of time you can devote to practicing and implementing the training exercises and protocols outlined in your plan. 

Private lessons: After your initial consult session we will schedule follow up private sessions. These are offered your home or at the studio. We coach you through training that is customized for your dog and we help you maintain that training.  In home Private lessons are $66 and In-Studio lessons are $55. Purchasing a package of lessons offers you a discount and helps you stay committed to the training.  Click here for PDF of Price Sheet.

Day Training : Life is busy, so let us train your dog. Our in home day training service allows you the freedom to go about your day while we train your dog. Day training sessions are sold in packages only, no single sessions. Session 1 is a 60-75 min consultation where we meet with you and your dog. We discuss your dogs history, your training goals for them, we start to outline an over all training plan and we set up the next visit. The following sessions happen while your are at work or elsewhere. After each session you receive a report on what was worked on and videos of the trainer and your dog working together. Then we schedule an hour session to show you how to maintain the training and your dog's improved behavior. The Day Training packages are similar to the private session packages. Here is a link to a video of a day training session:
