The world would be a nicer place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog.

Dogs do speak, but only to those who know how to listen.

Private Dog Training Lessons

1 Hour Lessons

Dog training lessons are typically held once per week or up to 5 times per week depending on your goals and your dog’s needs. You may want the benefits of a “board and train” style training program but can’t stand to send your pet away. Having 3-5 lessons per week can help mimic the training of a board and train style program you are looking for without the separation from your pet for weeks or months. Private lessons can also be scheduled at your convenience.

During these private dog training lessons, your dog trainer will come to your home or meet you at our facility and work hands-on with your dog(s) and everyone involved in your pet’s daily life. A LoveDog trainer will do a client needs assessment and a behavior evaluation of your dog on the first visit. From there, we will develop short and long-term goals together for your dog’s training. Your trainer will build a relationship with you and your dog(s), teach foundation obedience commands, and address any behavioral issues at hand. If your long-term goal involves special training or certifications, our head trainer, Rick Bailey, will outline the best path to achieve those goals and help you to reach them. Rick and our talented team look forward to guiding you and your dog on a successful path together.

Canine Good Citizen Test
The CGC is a 10-skill test through the American Kennel Club that teaches good manners to dogs and responsible dog ownership to their owners. Rick, along with a few of our trainers, are AKC approved CGC evaluators. The CGC title is a prerequisite for many therapy dog certifications, as well as a great introduction to more advanced dog sports and activities.
3 session training package: $350 (includes evaluation/certification)
