Private Dog Training Programs

We offer a variety of dog training options. We can start training your dog for you or work with you and your dog one-on-one.Below is a list of our private dog training programs. We also offer dog training classes.


Basic Obedience Training Dog Day School

Our Obedience Training Dog Day School consists of eight days of dog training and enrichment, and one training lessons with the trainer who worked with your dog. In these dog training lessons, our trainer will provide a progress review and offer training information and dog training tips to help you continue obedience training at home. These dog training lessons occur after Day 4 and Day 8. Our trainer can also recommend dog training tools and supplies that will maximize your dog’s success.

While in day school, dogs are exposed to everyday distractions like bikes, nature, and other dogs. These distractions provide a realistic environment for obedience training, and especially loose leash training.

We know you’re busy and can’t spend as much time training as you’d like to. This program gives you:

  • Peace of mind. Professional trainers who treat dogs kindly, and customize the program to meet your dog's needs.
  • An understanding of what works best for your dog so that you can continue training at home
  • A realistic environment that has numerous distractions

Basic Obedience Training Dog Boarding School (currently unavailable during construction)

Is your schedule too busy to work on training your dog? This program may be the perfect solution for you and your dog! A certified dog trainer will provide a custom dog obedience training program that consists of 15-30 private dog training sessions. The number of dog training sessions depends on which option you choose. This intensive dog training program is 1-2 weeks long and also includes two private dog training lessons with you. These dog training lessons will teach you how to continue your dog obedience training at home. Our trainer can also recommend dog training tools and supplies. Dogs will practice social skills and proper greetings with other dogs and people at dog daycare. They will also practice basic dog training commands, such as sit, down, come, stay, settle, and heel. We offer two options:

Puppy Head Start

This puppy training program is for puppies 8 to 16 weeks of age. It is perfect for puppies that are unable to attend our Puppy Kindergarten Class or for those who would like to get started right away on training. The major concentrations of this puppy training program are dog socialization and preventing unwanted behaviors. Owners learn to train their dogs in a positive and consistent manner. The program consists of two 1-hour private dog training lessons that are held at our facility and around town. In order to attend, puppies must be at least 10 days past their first Distemper vaccine. Bordetella is not required for this program.

$99 – includes two private lessons, treats and written materials. Our Puppy Kindergarten Class is highly recommended as a follow-up to this program. A 25% discount on our $129 Puppy Kindergarten Class is offered to puppies completing this program.

Puppy Potty Training Assistance Program (PPTAP)

This dog potty training program is specifically designed for puppies 8 weeks to 5 months old that need assistance with their potty training skills. We can also accommodate older puppies who simply need dog socialization, work on manners, or a place to play while their people are at work or otherwise occupied. PPTAP is a four-week dog training program. The puppy must attend dog daycare every day for 20 consecutive weekdays. Positive reinforcement and lots of praise are used to encourage the pup to develop positive potty habits, signals, and basic manners. Your family will also be given dog training tips to help support positive potty behavior at home. The program also includes naptime where we can work on dog crate training if desired. In addition, the pups receive up to ten hours per day of supervised social interaction with both puppies and older dogs. The amount of time depends upon when you drop-off and pick-up. During this time they will also interact with the staff, which helps build their socialization with people and self-confidence. Once the puppy has completed the Puppy Potty Training Assistance Program, they may continue to attend dog daycare at your convenience until six months of age, at which time spay/neuter is required. IMPORTANT NOTE: No puppy can be guaranteed to be fully potty trained in four short weeks. Many puppies are not reliable with their potty training skills until 8 months or older. However, four weeks in the Puppy Potty Training Assistance Program will give you and your pup many of the skills and successes on which to build a lifetime of positive potty habits!

$500 – includes 20-consecutive days of dog daycare and dog training

Reactive Dog Private Training Lessons

(We are unable to offer this class for now. After our expansion, we will be able to add this back to our options.)

Dog Training Refreshers

Every day that you sign up for dog training refreshers, dogs will have two one-on-one training sessions with a dog trainer. We will give you dog training tips to help you continue training at home. We also offer free follow-up by phone.
