Private Consultations

EXPERIENCE AND EXPERTISE

Private Sessions

Private Sessions are conducted in our brand new training center in Gilford NH. Or can be conducted in the privacy of your own home for an added fee.

Lessons are typically 1 hour long. We have experience and expertise in behavior modification of serious behavior problems including aggression. Your behavior consultation will be customized to your dog and his/her specific needs. It will include a unique plan for you and your dog, as well as follow up email or phone calls for support.

You will receive a homework-like plan of action that is customized to each individual situation. Handouts may be given to guide owners in the right direction and to get everyone in the household on the same page.

Private lessons are currently offered Monday-Thursdays. Please be aware that evenings book up the fastest and may be limited.

4 Week Private Obedience Course

This packaged rate course includes one hour of private lesson per week for four weeks.

This course is for a dog or puppy of any age and can be helpful especially if just adding a new dog to your family. We do have a set list of obedience skills We would like to teach (attention to name, sit, down, stay, wait, loose-leash walking, heel, leave it, no jumping, no nipping, house-training, come etc.) but we also like to add things that each owner requests, making this a unique one on one experience. We even offer a course to teach just tricks! (Great fun for kids!)

EXPERIENCE AND EXPERTISE

4 Week Private Reactive Recovery Course

This packaged rate course includes an hour long introduction lesson followed by three half hour lessons  out and about in carefully selected outdoor locations (within the Gilford/Laconia/Tilton area only). 

Does your dog bark and lunge at other dogs, people, or cars on leash? This private course is perfect for dogs with reactivity issues that may not be ready for our group reactivity class, as well as for handlers who prefer a one on one learning environment. Each dog and handler will be given a personalized training and management plan, as well as recommendations for useful equipment for your individual dog. This course begins with an hour long introduction lesson at our training center where we will get to know your dog and start on initial skills and a management plan. The following three half hour lessons are out and about in carefully selected outdoor locations to begin safely working your dogs around triggers.

 Lessons are currently only offered on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please be aware that evenings book up the fastest and may be limited!

Agility

Agility is great for both physical and mental stimulation! It can also be used for relationship building to create good communication between you and your dog.

Watch your dog build confidence while he jumps through hoops and weaves through poles. We are now offering private agility courses for dogs of all age and size. This will ensure your dog gets more one on one attention and will have no wait time for equipment use. This four week (30 min/week) private agility course is for fun only and is not competition based! It is all about letting your dog run and enjoy some mental and physical stimulation.
