Do I need a private lesson?
Not sure that a group class is for you? We offer in-home private lessons that cover all sorts of behaviors... Owners will often take a private lesson if they just have one or two things they need to work on, but don't need a full 6-week class. Or sometimes committing to a 6-week session is tough with busy schedules. We tailor the private lesson to your dog, your situaiton and your own needs.

Is your dog showing any signs of aggression? Then you should sign up for a private lesson for sure! We can assess what is going on, and help you down the path to a fair and understanding relationship. We specialize in aggressive dogs and difficult situations. Yep, we've done this once or twice before...

How do I schedule a lesson?
We can help you with your dog's behavior in a way that is effective and easy to understand! We offer weekend and evening appointments (they are our most popular, so they are typically are scheduling further out). We can almost always offer next-week appointments on weekday mornings. Please fill out the registration form and specificy your first and second choices. We'll get back to you via email with our soonest opening!

Where are the lessons held?
Intial consultations are held in our McFarland office. Any lessons scheduled after that may be in our office, or your home, depending on what behaviors we are working on.

How many lessons do I need?
If you have multiple behaviors you'd like to work on, we usually work on 1-2 behaviors per lesson. Our lessons are approximately 1 hour long (dogs and people tend to lose focus past that!). We will give you detailed homework, and decide if multiple lessons are needed. With some behaviors one lesson is all you need - With others, you may benefit from multiple sessions.

What's the cost?

In our Office, $110 for a session
In your Home, $120 for a session, plus an additional fee for the driving cost and time to drive to your home.
