Ready to have personalized one-on-one attention from an experienced trainer? Want to stop your dog's bad habits or begin teaching new behaviors? Try an in-home private session!
What is it? Where are they held?
Private sessions are held for approximately 1-1.5 hours in your home or at a nearby park and are used to address any behavioral issue including aggression. Sessions are typically scheduled on weekends but we occasionally can do weekday evenings as well. I currently offer lessons all over North and South Orange County. While I currently reside in Fullerton, most of my client base is is located predominantly in South Orange County.
What can we do in private sessions?
While most owners don't think much can be covered in a private session, often times this is the easiest way to solve basic behavior problems. During a session or series of sessions, we can talk about all the behavior problems being exhibited by the dog and discuss a plan of action for beginning to solve the problems. By being in the dog's normal home environment, I can often explain what changes can be made to the home that will benefit both the dog and owner.
How many sessions are needed?
The number of sessions needed will depend entirely on the dog and the amount of problems that need to be resolved. Often times we can also begin working on teaching new behaviors and getting the dog on the right track. This can include anything the owner wishes the dog would know - from your basic "sit" command to fetching a drink from the fridge!
The more training you do, the better your dog will be! There is also a discount for purchasing MULTIPLE sessions.
This sounds expensive, can I afford it?
My first and foremost goal is always getting results for both the dog and the owner. I can work within most budget guidelines to do the most for you and your dog. During the free evaluation, we will establish what needs to be done and how to do it in a way that is both cost and time effective.
Why don't you have packages?
Most trainers sell large, unnecessary packages of training lessons hoping that the owner will not follow through with all the lessons. I prefer to do a pay-as-you-go, so you don't get stuck paying for training lessons you don't use. There are also trainers out there that ONLY cover specific behaviors in their lessons. My lessons are open to ANY issue you have with your dog, including aggression. While we don't mandate purchasing a package of lessons, we do offer a small discount if you pay up front for multiple lessons.
