We will determine in the intro call what your puppy's strengths and challenges are and design a plan that is age-appropriate for your first package. Our packages are flexible.

Who is this package for? 

Puppies 8 weeks to under 11 months old at the start of the package

What do I get? 

  • (4) 45-minute in-person training sessions per package

  • We drive to your home for lessons but may also arrange to meet at a vet clinic, or sometimes at a public place like a park or shopping center, depending on what you're working on

  • You will receive notes after each session, including options to view videos and/or articles to help you remember the training homework

  • You can text, email, or call with questions outside of sessions

 

How often do I see the trainer?

  • You can meet with your trainer for one package only or set up multiple packages back to back, but billed as you need them, if your puppy is young and you want comprehensive help as your puppy grows up.

  • You can schedule lessons about every 7 to 14, days depending on what's best for your schedule and your practice time between sessions. You can take a week off if needed for vacation or just a break, no problem

  • You can take a few weeks off to practice between packages or during vacations or after spay/neuter surgery for recovery time.

  • You have 6 months to use each package in case life gets hectic and you need to pause work, but they do expire at that time.

Do I have to be there?

  • Ideally, someone in your family can be present to ask questions and participate and share info with the rest of the family, but life gets hectic. If you want the trainer to come when you aren't there, that can be arranged.

  • The trainer will do the lesson and record videos, then later will upload video clips explaining what was done to an unlisted YouTube account and provide the links to you so you can practice. The trainer will take your puppy out for a potty break during the session, also. This work is an extra $10 per lesson.

  • If you can't attend and don't have time to practice, you may wish to schedule multiple lessons per week.
