Private lessons are available for families looking to achieve specific goals or address problem behaviors. Our trainers work together as a team to find the best person to help each individual dog. With four trainers on staff, we have one to fit each dog's individual needs. The first step in our private lesson program is a consultation and assessment with one of our team so that we can determine the best course of action.
