We emphasize positive, reward-based methods to make dog training fun for both dogs and owners.

Private Training


Private lessons offer the one-on-one attention that is sometimes needed for specific training issues, including behavior problems.  It a great way to start training for an adult dog or puppy that is new to training or is easily distracted.  This method of training is also popular with those looking for more flexibility in scheduling their dog’s training due to a busy or unpredictable schedule.


Private lessons are 1 hour in length and can be done at your home, park,

or anywhere else you need your dog to be better behaved.


If  you are looking for a more hands off approach in the beginning of your dogs training we also have very popular Drop Off Training and Board and Train Programs.


If you need to talk before purchasing your lesson call Kristen at 203-270-DOGS(3647)
