Private lessons are the most effective way to address your dog’s behavior issues. You work one on one with a trainer and focus on your most pressing concerns with your dog.
Our private lesson clients enjoy group classes at the reduced rate of $200 for the life of the dog.

We charge a $35 evaluation fee to come to your home and talk to you about what behavioral issues you’re experiencing with your dog and go over what you can expect from our training packages. The evaluation fee is waived when you sign up for training during that evaluation.
Our private lessons typically begin in your home and around your neighborhood, we gradually move on to areas like downtown Los Gatos or Santana Row to introduce more distractions to your dog. You are the guiding force of these lessons; we address your concerns while also teaching obedience commands and giving you invaluable instruction on how to manage your dog. Our trainers assess your individual needs and create a program that is tailor made for you and your dog. Each Private Lesson package focuses on walking on a loose leash while also learning the obedience commands of sit, down, stand and stay. Each private lesson is approximately 45 minutes, once a week for the duration of your training package.
Our training methods do not typically rely on food. Instead, we believe in using physical affection and verbal praise for reward.
