How At-Home Training Works

Tell Us About Yourselves

Submit an online form so we can learn more about you, your puppy, 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 an orientation 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 puppy. 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 puppy. 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!

Orientations last approximately 2 hours and are priced at $200.
