Walk & Train (Day Training)
Practice makes perfect! This rings true with your pooch's manners! If he doesn't practice manners routinely, the behaviors will never get stronger.

We will happily install new basic walk manners, polish those you've started and help prevent future leash issues. You will receive a daily or weekly write up on our training session/s along with appropriate handouts and exercises to work on with your dog. Depending on numbers of weekly day training sessions, transfer sessions will be scheduled either weekly or bi-weekly. 

To kick off our Walk & Train program, you must complete one evaluation lesson to assess goals, learn initial exercises that we will be working on during our time and in order for us to create a training protocol specific to your dog.  Note; Dogs that are reactive on leash will need a complex desensitization and counter conditioning program. For further information, see in-home private training. Cost: $80.00 hour.  Travel charges may apply. 

Day Training: 

Day training consists of a trainer working with your dog several times a week. At the end of each week, the lessons will be imparted to you, the client. This offers an advantage of having your dog being trained by a professional trainer to achieve faster results. The training will then need to be translated to the owner. This is imperative to maintain your dog's training. 

 $90.00 / hour. 
Package Rate: 2 hours a week + transfer session: $255.00 / for three total sessions
