201 Private In-Home Training
This course provides one-on-one training at your home. The
trainer trains the dog on all desired behaviors. After
your dog has an understanding of the behavior, the trainer
then trains you to maintain the behavior. Some behaviors
addressed include “Sit”, “Stay”, “Come”
and Boundaries. Benefits include personal attention, in your
home (which allows the trainer to evaluate your dog's living
quarters) and at your dog's pace. The course is 8 sessions,
meeting upon your request. There are no special requirements
for private in home training. $480 for 8 sessions.
This one-on-one meeting is designed to tackle any questions
you may have about your dog. Examples of past Behavioral
Assessments include puppy proofing a home, extinguishing

beneficial, because it pinpoints the behaviors you would
