Private Lessons

Frustrated with your dog jumping on visitors, barking at the doorbell, begging for food during meal time, or general lack of manners? Do you have a dog that is too worked up for a group class environment 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 mins and the cost is $60 for an in home consult/lesson or $50 if the consult/lesson is held at Down Dog Studio. If the first consult session if for a dog who is fearful/over-reactive or aggressive then we may suggest a 1 1/2 hour session for a fee of $75. 

Step 2: Training Program

The number and pace of the private training sessions varies on the goals for your dog and their progress.
