At First, Training Your Dog Can Seem Like A Daunting Task.

It is often hard to know where to start – do you work on the basics like sit and come or is counter surfing and leash walking the first things to tackle? Frustration can easily set in on both ends for you and your dog!

Here at The Confident Hound, we understand these challenges and want to help you overcome them. We offer positive reinforcement training that can make the process easier and more enjoyable for both of you. With our help, you will be able to create a strong foundation for a lasting relationship with your furry friend.

How At-Home Training Works

Tell Us About Yourselves

Submit an online form so we can learn more about you, your dog, and your training needs. We'll respond via email with next steps or provide a referral if applicable.

Meet Your Dog Trainer

We begin with a consultation in the comfort of your own home, complete with resources and solutions to get you started. Then we recommend a program that targets your priority training goals.

Learn How To Train

We’ll meet weekly to teach YOU how to train your dog. You will learn techniques and games that help replace unwanted behaviors with new habits you both love.

Enjoy Life With Your Dog

You'll have the peace of mind of a more predictable life with your dog. Plus, you will feel confident in your own ability to continue their training. If new goals arise, we'd love to help you reach them!

Consultations last approximately 2 hours and are priced at $150.
