Private Lessons And Behavior Modification

Initial 1 1/2 Hour Consultation: $150 At Your Place

I will help you choose the right program for your dog.  Some dogs need training and behavior, while others need only behavior since they already know their obedience cues.  This consultation is important because I need to know your dog’s temperament, activity level, quirks, environment, etc.

All behavior and training is conducted by Marcela, and the program to be used is tailored specifically for your dog.  To make sure that your dog receives the attention and care he needs there is only one to two dogs booked at a time.

In-Home Private Lessons – Each session is with you, your dog, and trainer.  Sessions will be scheduled depending on your dog’s progression because dogs are individuals and they learn at their own pace.

Level I Dog Behavior & Training – 4 (1 hr.) lesson package $600

Behavior will include the following:

  • Start working on loose-leash walking
  • Owning your place/space
  • Doors – there is no bolting out an open door

Training cues:

    1. Name game
    2. Sit
    3. Stay
    4. Come

Ideal for puppies and newly adopted dogs regardless of age.  This is a good introduction to the above cues, doggie manners, and reinforcement of good behavior.

  1. Do you offer day classes during the week dor puppies?

    • Yes, I do. I also prefer to take no more than 2 pet parents at a time. Most of my classes are actually one pet parent and one furry kid. You could e-mail me or call me if you’d like to talk. Thanks
