Private/Small Group Training

I have designed a series of training programs and curriculums to suit your lifestyle, purposes and goals. In our first personal training session, you and I will talk about what you would like to achieve with your dog, and then we will plan and develop a training curriculum together customized for your dog. These foundational training programs include:

Companion Dog Obedience

Pet dogs and companion dogs, when properly educated, can bring us a lot of fun and enjoyment. On the other hand, if not brought up appropriately, the same dogs can give their owners a great amount of distress. Therefore, the correct kind of training should be introduced as young as possible to ensure a well-behaved family dog.
Below are some of the topics we will be possibly covering during our personal training, depending on what you would like your pet to achieve at the end:

  1. Basic Understanding of Dog Communication
  2. Rewarding Based Training
  3. Aversive Based Training
  4. Basic Obedience – (Come, Sit Stay, Down Stay, & Heel)
