Day Training Sessions Call to schedule starting at $495 to $735- Day training sets you and your dog up for quick training success. Have a certified professional with the knowledge and skilled hands train your dog from the ground up. We train your dog at your home while you are at work. No more feelings of frustration and embarrassment. A Day-Training program consists of an initial one hour consult then two to three weeks of training. The training program is determined by the trainer and you, based on the needs and goals of your case.  The trainer trains the dog for two to three – 45 to 60-minute sessions in one week, then wrapping up each week with an additional 45 to 60-minute transition session to show you what Fido learned for the week. We transfer the skills learned to you including teaching you when and how to ask for the new behaviors or how to stop the unwanted behaviors. After the designated number of weeks, a one to two follow-up sessions will be scheduled to ensure long- term success. Working with a certified dog trainer can completely change your life!

Wall Flowers Class: Call to schedule  Semi-private class (2 dogs max)  6 weeks -  For shy or fearful dogs. I was taking a seminar & volunteering at Best Friends Animal Society in Utah (Dog Town on the National Geographic Channel) when they asked if I wanted to help work with the Wall Flower rescues. My heart just broke. I wanted to help these fearful dogs as much as possible. And, for me, that was just the beginning. Nicole Wilde (author of "Help for Your Fearful Dog") and my shy and sweet girl Miss Sally who has since passed inspired me to teach and offer this class to owners of shy and fearful dogs. We teach hand targeting to build confidence and we throw in a little agility training just for fun. We go to the local park or pet store just to meet strangers. Playing "watch the world game" is a great way to reduce stress for your pup.
