We provide loving individual attention by our 4 experienced certified dog trainers. All activities are discussed and agreed with you prior to the start of the program.

The combination makes it a unique and rounded program for under socialized dogs with signs of over excitement, ‘loosing control’ when around other dogs. We cannot address aggression cases in this setting; please consider a private session.

Training Walks – Our unique Signature Program

One of our signature programs! All our walks are built on the concept of Walking with Regard also called Connected Walking. The concept of Connected Walking has revolutionized the humane dog training world and is proven to work. We have refined the concept to adjust to the different issues that clients experience while walking their dog or puppy. Our training walks include progress reports and a close cooperation with you, the dog owner. Our experienced, certified dog trainers will give you the tools to build your skills with focus work, redirection, and strengthening your relationship and trust with your dog or puppy.

 

1. Leash Reactivity/Behavioral issues

Is your dog lunging, barking, growling at other dogs? Is he out of control and over the top excited? You and your dog will learn how to relax and enjoy the walk. Packages include 2 sessions with you, the dog owner (5 sessions). The recommended package is 10 sessions which includes at least 2 sessions with you in order to transfer the skills, as well as at least one session with my non-reactive dog Luna. Luna is the best teacher for your reactive dog, and the results are truly amazing. Treating leash reactivity takes time and patience. Please also consider our Leash Reactivity group class. Both programs in parallel will empower you and help your dog to overcome her reactivity.

$80/session; $390/5 sessions; $750/10 sessions

Duration: 45 minutes

2. Leash Manners

Is your puppy or dog a puller? Are walks less than enjoyable because your dog is ‘all over the place’. This program is for young puppies and non-reactive dogs. We instill proper leash manners by mixing up different tools in a relaxed manner.

$45/session; $220/5 sessions; $420/10 sessions

Duration: 30 minutes

3. Connected Walking

Connected Walking is a state of the art way of leash work! It is proven to work and will change the way you walk your dog.

$60/session; $290/5 sessions; $550/10 sessions
