In-home dog training is a great choice for you to improve your dog’s household manners and general obedience in the privacy of your home and on your schedule. When most people think of obedience, their vision should include a well-mannered, well-behaved, happy confident dog. A dog who exhibits the behaviors and commands you prefer, including “sit,” “down,” “stay,” and of course a proper greeting and loose leash walking.
BASIC MANNERS & LOOSE LEASH WALKING
Ultimately the goal of our training is to help your pet learn basic manners and to develop the ability to perform loose leash walking under control. To that end, we offer a number of different in-home dog training programs and services for Wilmington area pet owners. All in-home training and dog coaching begins with an initial consultation based on your unique needs. After your initial consultation, you can choose day training packages or coaching visits as needed.
Initial Pawsitive Consultation $75
Every dog is an individual and your initial consultation will include an evaluation and cover your unique concerns. During this one-on-one time we will concentrate on the common behavior issues such as jumping, pulling on the leash or running out the door or work on commands, sit, down, stay. Together we will develop a plan.
Pawsitive Coaching Package $200
3 additional one-hour visits to give you guidance in implementing your customized plan created during the Pawsitive Consultation. As a team we will use proper communication to train your pup the behaviors you prefer. Much like accelerated group classes but with total personal attention. Typically scheduled once a week, and success depends on doing your homework!
In Home Day Training Package $275
Love your pup, but not fascinated with doing the training? Day training is the perfect solution because it is fast and effective! And because I am doing the training, your pup can learn in weeks what may take you months or a lifetime!
Here’s how it works:
Lessons begin with your dog and me! 3 sessions per week
Day training lessons are generally set up while you’re working or out of the house. These 50-minute sessions involve my working with your dog one-on-one and strengthening each lesson in a variety of situations and environments. Most dogs will learn 2-3 behaviors per week.
Next, a Transfer session. 1 session with you
Each week to ten days, I meet with you to transfer the lessons that your dog has learned. These hour-long lessons are detailed in review sheets and handouts.
In Home Training works best if 3 to 4 weeks are scheduled. This will make most dogs proficient in basic manners and problem behaviors.
3 Weeks $800 ($100 discount)
4 weeks $1050 ($150 discount)
NOTE: This is not for dogs with true behavior issues, requiring extensive behavior modification (such as aggression or separation anxiety).
