Private Training

can you train my dog for meOk, private training is a great option. Let me give you an example of how I helped a client with private training.

Bill wanted his young lab “Abby” to be well-mannered. I detected concern and irritation as he described how “Abby” still jumped on people, pulled on leash, did not come or follow other commands reliably despite efforts to train her. To help Bill out, I suggested  private training so we could get things under control.  With 30 years experience successfully helping owners modify behavior I could sympathize with Bills frustration.  I coached Bill through changes he needed make to better meet Abby’s needs, allowing her to be more sane. Helped Bill implement prevention strategies for those times he was not able to help Abby learn and helped them work through a customized training plan to teach Abby acceptable behaviors.
