Private Lessons

Private lessons can be the ideal way to start your training or bring focus to particular problem areas. We’ll focus on your priorities and help you meet your training goals. You can check availability and schedule online here or we’ll be happy to help via e-mail or phone.

All of our Pet Manners trainers are highly skilled with typical training issues like Friendly Jumping on People, Pulling on the Leash, Excitement Around Strange Dogs or Strange People, Minor Fear-based Issues, Training Obedience Commands and Tricks.

However, if your dog is experiencing more significant behavior issues, you’ll need to request your private with one of our  Master Trainers. With their extensive education and experience, they are qualified to help with the more challenging behavior issues:

  • Reactivity to Dogs (barking and lunging toward them)
  • Significant Fear Behaviors

Please note we do not allow aggressive dogs in the facility. If your dog lunges aggressively toward people, or has bitten a person or dog, we can help with a referral to a specialist who can come to your home. Puppy play biting is not included in this category.

To use this online scheduler, first choose a Session Type, then click the Search button. For typical issues and behavior problems, you’ll need to choose one of the Pet Manners options. The fee for Master Trainers is $50 / half hour. All others are $40 / half hour. Please note that our Master Trainers are often booked full for at least 2 – 3 weeks in advance. If your search returns with empty results, choose a start date farther in the future or give us a call at 214-297-3000.
