We are not taking any new clients or new dogs at this time. Sorry for the inconvenience
A consultation is an approximately three-hour lesson that jump starts the dog's training by addressing the dog’s training in your home. This extensive lesson covers everything from walking on a leash, manners, crate training, house training, etc. Multiple dogs are an additional charge. Follow up lessons are available for $175.
Done in a home-like environment, this program is for dogs or puppies that need basic manners for jumping, excitability, demanding behavior, or an unruly dog. This program teaches loose leash walking, place command, proper interaction with dogs, calm behavior on leash, coming when called on a long line, and greeting guests calmly. This program teaches dogs how to behave in social environments. Three lessons are included after the training is completed so the humans can maintain the training.
This program is geared towards dogs that have some behavior issues such as reactivity on leash to people or dogs, anxiety, difficult house training, and snapping at people. Many dogs benefit from being in training for an extended period of time to solidify the dog's new behavior or to change an ingrained or genetic behavior. This program includes a more formal obedience component, plus recall in a fenced area, with behavior modification. This program comes with four lessons after training.
This program is for dogs that need serious training for serious issues. These dogs have bitten a human and left a bruise or broken skin, fought with other dogs, have severe anxiety, dog aggression, or extreme fear. We find that extended training school benefits both dog and owner because the new behavior has become a new way of being for the dog. This program includes at least four lessons for the human family after training.
An evaluation is for any dog that needs to be evaluated by our trainer before a training program is decided upon. This takes about an hour. We also offer follow up lesson or occasionally need to meet clients for an hourly lesson.
For our long distance clients, we do offer a telephone or FaceTime consultation. Phyllis can give you tips and advice on training and behavior. This is more in-depth than our initial telephone call to schedule an appointment

An evaluation is for any dog that needs to meet us to decide on a training program or an opinion on their dog's behavior. We also have an hourly rate for those particular situations that need it.
While we do not anticipate medical needs to arise while your dog is with us, occasionally we do have dogs develop minor to major illnesses during their stay. We work closely with a local vet to ensure your dog will receive any needed medical care during his/her stay. We will communicate closely with you about any vet services needed. We do charge a $50 vet transport fee if your dog needs to see the vet during his stay, in addition to the vet bill and any tests or medications. Please ensure y
