Dog Training Private Lessons

Our dog training private lessons allow you to focus on your specific goals with your dog.

During these lessons you can pick and choose what you would like to work on. Our focus during these lessons can be learning more about your puppy, training impulse control, learning foundations of parkour/agility, teaching your dog to relax around other dogs, confidence building for the fearful dog, controlling aggressive behavior, teaching your dog not to jump on visitors, coming when called, potty training and more.

Behavior Modification Programs

We also offer private dog training lessons for dogs with issues such as:

  • Fear – Fearful dogs are often dogs who shy away from you and or others; dogs who hide from visitors; dogs who bite and/or growl due to fear; and dogs who shut down at the vet or groomers.
  • Aggression – This includes dogs who guard resources including food, toys, space, their bodies, or people; dogs who bite or growl at family members or others; dogs who aggressively jump, mouth, and/or bark
  • Frustration – Frustrated dogs are often dogs who can be seen barking at windows, fence fighting with other dogs, jumping on visitors, or barking and lunging on leash towards people, dogs, or other animals.

Facility Initial Consultation

At the initial consultation at our facility, your dog will be evaluated and the trainer will discuss your dog’s history with you to help gain details. From there, you will discuss a training plan and start working on the first steps toward working with your dog. Follow up lessons are $60.




In-Home Initial Consultation

Our Initial In-Home Consultation is ONLY available for dog’s looking for basic manners or obedience work. If your dog is experiencing reactivity, fear, or aggression you MUST do a private lesson at our facility before scheduling any in-home consultations. Follow up in-home lessons are $100.


Zoom Initial Consultation

Our zoom consultations allow our clients to meet with us in a safe manner no matter where they are located. These are especially good for people who are too far from our location to travel or for immune compromised individuals who cannot come to a private at our facility or a class due to COVID concerns. Follow up Zoom lessons are $60.




We offer classes for dogs of every age and skill level that teach your dog basic obedience as well as sport specific classes like Rally, Scent Work, and Parkour.

We also offer private lessons which let you pick and choose what you would like to work on. It could be as simple as learning more about your puppy or training impulse control, relaxation around other dogs, and more!

It’s kind of hard to write this because what Ginger has done for me & my dog is so big it’s truly hard to fit into words and just overwhelming to think about. I guess it’s pretty much like the proverbial “pebble in the pond” or “ripple effect.” One in home visit with her led to so many positive changes.

I love what they do here. Amazing work with animals that is science based and effective. I would recommend them to anyone!
