We are pleased to now offer Virtual Private Lessons!

The consultation will be followed with an email from your trainer containing the strategies discussed in the consultation, in bullet point format. PLUS, you have the opportunity to get additional coaching from your trainer following your consultation. For each private lesson, you can send one follow-up email, including a video clip. Your trainer will respond in a timely fashion with her feedback.

What kinds of things can be addressed in a virtual, online private lesson? Nearly anything we can help with in person. Your trainer will formulate strategies for you to implement to address your issues.

  • Puppy problems of all kinds! house training, puppy biting, bedtime issues, etc.
  • Resource guarding
