Private Training

Maybe your dog is too easily distracted by other dogs or new environments to learn well in a group setting. Or perhaps your busy schedule makes committing to a weekly class difficult. Or it could be your dog has a behavior problem that wouldn’t be addressed with obedience lessons. If so, private training may be best for you.

Customized training

Does your dog do something you wish he wouldn’t, like pee on your rugs, jump on guests, or bark at kids? Or maybe your dog doesn’t do what you wish he would, like settle down and relax for the day while you’re gone, or allow his nails to be trimmed. We’re on it! We’ll come up with a customized training plan relevant to your needs. These packages are perfect for problems such as separation anxiety, resource guarding, reactivity, or aggression.

  • Customized training begins with an initial visit approximately one hour in length. Allow us to be your professional ‘sounding board’ and we will give you our expe
    rt opinion on where to go next, based on your dog and your goals. Management skills for pressing issues will be provided along with suggestions for how to begin training new behaviours. $60 + HST. 
  • When necessary following an initial visit, our professional trainers will develop a customized training plan for you and your dog.  They will work with you in 30 – 60 minute sessions to help you and your dog overcome those problems that need extra attention.

Existing Course packages

Screen Shot 2016-07-12 at 4.24.21 PMGroup classes are a great way for you and your dog to learn new skills and to practice them with the real life distractions of other dogs and people present.
However, for dogs who do not do well in a group environment, or whose owners struggle to come to regularly scheduled classes, we offer most of our existing courses in a private or semi-private setting.  Each class is done in six half hour sessions $210 + HST. Fill out this request form to request any of our existing courses in a private setting.

Where does Private Training happen?

  • In-home. Depending on your location, we may be able to come to you! We are typically able to cover Orleans to Nepean, the near-side of Gatineau to Walkley. Some of our instructors are able to visit clients outside our service zone for an additional travelling fee – $65 per hour of travel time (the meter starts running after 15 minutes of travel time)
  • At the school. Do you live out of town? Is your house currently a warzone of renovations, kids’ birthday parties, puppy messes, or all of the above? We can set up training sessions at the school, allowing us full use of the training hall and equipment.
  • Anywhere convenient! Depending on what we’re working on, sessions can be done at a park, on the trails, or on a downtown sidewalk.
