During your initial in-home consultation, we will come to you and meet you and your dog in your home. This allows us to get to know your dog's temperament, personality, and current skills. We’ll develop a personalized training plan together based on your goals, get started with training basics right away, and suggest management solutions for behaviors you are struggling with.
Virtual consultations are an excellent option for distance learning. Using a webcam, we can still see and coach you and your dog one-on-one in detail. Your dog’s normal behaviors won’t be affected by our presence, giving a more realistic everyday picture. Your dog will also not be distracted by the trainer’s presence, allowing for faster learning when teaching new behaviors.
Get your puppy off to the right start with in-home coaching covering basic manners, housetraining and chew-training, proper socialization, and more! Learn how to use positive reinforcement and error-less learning to set your puppy up for success.
