PET DOG TRAINING & BEHAVIOR - PRIVATE LESSONS

NOTE: I'm currently taking new clients on the North Shore only. If you are not located in the North Shore, please see the OTHER TRAINERS section below for recommendations on other trainers.

Private lessons are available for dog owners who need assistance resolving various canine behavioral issues in their home environment. My approach to training and behavior modification emphasizes positive reinforcement, positive association and effective communication. All training is customized based on your lifestyle and your dog's temperament and needs. I ask all new clients to fill out a detailed questionnaire prior to the first lesson. Common behaviors that can be addressed include:

~ Jumping, nipping and over-excitement
~ Destructive chewing and digging
~ Basic obedience such as Sit, Down, Stay and Come
~ Potty training
~ Fear of dogs, people, or inanimate objects such as stairs and bicycles
~ Aggression and on-leash reactivity towards other dogs
~ Possession aggression (resource guarding) including food and toy guarding
