We provide top-notch private dog training. Why do we offer only private dog training?
Private dog training offers several benefits over group training or self-guided training methods. Here are some advantages of private dog training:
Personalized Attention: Private dog training allows for one-on-one interaction between the trainer and your dog. The trainer can focus solely on your dog's individual needs, temperament, and specific training goals. This personalized attention enables a more tailored training approach, ensuring better results.
Customized Training Plan: Private trainers can create a training plan specifically designed for your dog. They can assess your dog's behavior, identify any issues or challenges, and develop a training program that addresses those specific areas. This personalized approach can be highly effective in achieving desired behavioral changes.
Flexibility: Private training offers flexibility in terms of scheduling. You can arrange training sessions at a time that suits your convenience, making it easier to fit training into your busy schedule. Additionally, you can focus on specific areas or skills that you want to work on, rather than following a predetermined curriculum.
Reduced Distractions: In a private training setting, there are fewer distractions compared to group training classes. This allows your dog to focus better on the training exercises and commands. With reduced distractions, your dog is more likely to grasp the concepts quickly and progress faster in their training.
Individualized Problem Solving: If your dog has specific behavioral issues or challenges, private training provides an opportunity to address them in a controlled environment. The trainer can observe and analyze your dog's behavior closely, identify the root causes of the problems, and work on effective solutions. This individualized problem-solving approach can be particularly beneficial for dogs with aggression, fear, or anxiety issues.
Trainer Expertise: Private trainers often have extensive experience and expertise in dog training and behavior modification. They stay up to date with the latest training methods and techniques, allowing them to tailor their approach to your dog's specific needs. Their knowledge and skills can significantly enhance the effectiveness of the training process.
Bonding and Trust Building: Private training sessions provide an excellent opportunity for you and your dog to strengthen your bond and build trust. With a dedicated trainer's guidance, you can learn how to effectively communicate and understand your dog's behavior. This enhanced connection between you and your dog can result in a more cooperative and well-behaved pet.
While private dog training may involve higher costs compared to group classes, the individual attention, customized approach, and tailored solutions make it a worthwhile investment for those seeking effective and personalized training for their dogs.
OUR DOG TRAINING PACKAGES
PUPPY TRAINING SERIES
$450 plus GST
Puppies go through what is called the critical socialization period between 3 and 12 weeks. This is when they start developing fear and is characterized by single-event learning, meaning that even just one negative experience can have a lifelong impact, whereas setting up positive socialization experiences will ensure your pup grows into a confident adult!
It's never too early to reach out to one of our professional trainers on how to successfully socialize your puppy and get started on teaching some basic fundamental behaviors like sit, come, stay among others.
This package consists of 3 one hour sessions that you can schedule with one of our trainers at your own pace and convenience. Each session consists of information about puppy behavior and important training concepts as well as a set of essential behaviors and training games. However, because the sessions are private, they are flexible and can be modified to help you deal with specific issues you are having with your pup.
Our trainers also offer ongoing support via text or email if you have questions in between sessions as well as providing homework to help structure your training throughout the week.
