This single session lasts approximately 90 minutes. The Strategy Session is individually customized to address any struggles you're having with your dog's behavior and to identify realistic and attainable goals for you and your dog to work towards. It is also an excellent option if you are trying to decide between one-on-one training sessions, or an Immersion Program.
We will discuss some of the differences in human and canine psychology that often contribute to the breakdown in communication between man and man's best friend. We will also talk about the impact that nutrition and health have on your dog's behavior and learning. I will teach you simple techniques that will set your dog up to succeed.
Depending on your dog training needs and goals, this one session can provide you with enough information and guidance to get you headed down the right path with your dog. However, for most behavioral issues, there is no "quick fix". If you decide that you and your dog would benefit from more training, I will create a training plan specifically tailored for you and your dog.
If you sign up for one of our training programs within 7 days of completing the Strategy Session, you will receive $100 credit towards the One-on-One Training Package, or $200 credit towards the Immersion Program.
It is your responsibility to schedule your sessions. All training packages and sessions are non-transferrable, non-refundable and must be completed within three months.
Payment is required in advance to reserve a spot on our training schedule for a Strategy Session.
This program includes four, one-on-one training sessions. Each session lasts approximately one hour.
During the initial session, we will discuss the specific problems that you’re having with your dog and I will show you how to properly communicate with your dog through hands-on training and household management techniques. I will design a custom training program that will specifically address any behavioral issues you are having with your dog. You will actually see noticeable changes in your dog’s behavior during this first session.
During each of the following sessions, we will review the training concepts covered in previous sessions and address any areas of concern. It is important that you and your dog master each step before moving on. Each week we will continue to work on commands and changing unwanted behaviors.
We will focus on the specific challenges that you are facing with your dog, and I will provide you with realistic solutions to your dog's behavior problems. By starting with the basics, and through a series of small steps, your dog will learn to walk properly beside you on a loose leash, without pulling, sniffing, barking or lunging. Your dog will learn sit/stay, down/stay, (even around distractions) and the extremely beneficial place command. Most importantly, your dog will learn to be calm and relaxed.
This program allows you to be part of the entire training process. I will show you how to effectively use my training methods and recommend a simple training plan, specifically for you and your dog. I can train your dog, but continued success depends on you. I promise to provide you with all of the information and support needed to ensure lasting results.
Additional training sessions may be purchased on an as-needed basis for $150 per session.
It is your responsibility to schedule your training sessions. All sessions are non-transferrable, non-refundable and must be completed within three months.

Every interaction with a dog is a training opportunity, which is why my 24/7 training program yields such outstanding results. If you are struggling with your dog’s behavior, and you've tried everything you can think of, but nothing seems to work; even if you have been to other trainers or if your dog has been turned away from obedience classes; if you have a new puppy, or you adopted an adult dog and you just want to start off on the right foot, immersion training can give you the results you want.
This program provides a unique combination of structure and consistency, along with carefully supervised socialization. It is designed to help dogs achieve a calm state of mind, which is the foundation for changing behaviors. Your dog will spend several hours each day practicing calming exercises, in order to achieve relaxation and self control. Although your dog will be immersed in an extensive training program, he will also enjoy staying in my home and being part of my pack.
Training is not an event, it is a lifestyle. The most important aspect of your dog’s training begins when he returns home. Once your dog is trained, it will be up to you to maintain what he has learned. I promise to provide you with all of the information and support needed to ensure lasting results.
In the unlikely event you still struggle with your dog after he returns home from my Immersion Program, or you feel you're not achieving the results you're looking for, you must be proactive and contact me with concerns before they become major issues. In most cases, I will need to spend more time teaching you and improving your dog handling skills.
A deposit of 50% of the package fee is required in advance, in order to reserve a spot on our training schedule. The remaining balance is due at the start of the program and may be paid by cash, check, credit card, Venmo or Zelle.
All training packages and sessions are non-refundable and non-transferable.
Beyond Boarding is a unique boarding option, available only to dogs that have previously trained with me. Whether you are going out of town, or just going to work for the day, your dog will feel right at home in a controlled and familiar environment. He will enjoy supervised play-time with other balanced dogs and refreshers on existing training. You won’t have to worry about your best friend while you’re away; I will send you occasional photos and updates via text or email.
(Aggressive dogs accepted on a case-by-case basis; rates start at $100 / day.)
