"Stella was constantly getting in the trash. She'd gone to the vet for over $900 in treatment because she ate things she wasn't supposed to. After training with Amy, she doesn't even look at the garbage can any more."

1 on 1 Training with You and Your Dog

At our 1 on 1 sessions, I work with you and your dog to learn skills to help complete your personal obedience training program. We use leash and prong collar to teach your dog a foundation of basic commands and behavior so that you can practice at home.

​We will teach Sit, Down, Place, Come (Recall), as well as work on a really nice walk. During this time, we can also address any behavior issues you might have such as jumping on people or pulling on the leash. (This is a program for dogs who need good basic obedience but don't have any issues such as aggression, fear, or anxiety.)

Rates: 4 Sessions for $595 (includes 4 sessions approximately 1-1.5 hrs long).  If you do not already have prong collar (I recommend Herm Sprenger brand), I can provide one for $30.

The Active Dog Walk Program

Having trouble taking a relaxed walk with your dog? Does your dog pull or even refuse to go? Do you avoid walking because your dog is reactive to other people or dogs? The Active Dog Walk Program can help you take the walk you want with your dog. This program consists of a longer session where we will introduce the dog to the prong collar pressure and then work with the dog to cultivate a really nice, calm walk.
