Custom Private Lessons Pricing

Custom Package Pricing

Pricing as of 1/1/17  

Custom private lesson packages are the most versatile training option we offer and by far the most popular.  These packages allow for complete customization of training plans for our clients. Students, both canine and human, can focus only on the things that are important to them and what is needed for them to meet their individual goals.  New students do not need to commit to a package before their consultation.  At the end of the consultation (once we have gathered all the information we need), we will provide a recommendation for which package(s) will be the best options for our students to reach their goals.

 

We accept cash, check, paypal, or credit cards (via a paypal or paypal’s swipe phone app).

 


 Initial Consultation — $170

This is an approximately 2hr consultation that is an information sharing/gathering conversation (all students start with a consultation and it can be lesson 1 of their package or they can purchase the consult separate from a package). Through this conversation we will gather important details about your dog’s concerning behaviors and any other training need you wish to address.  We then use all of this information to create your custom training plan.  At the consult we will answer all of your questions, discuss goal setting (and start to set some), give you insights into your dog’s behavior problem, teach you some training or management skills, and we will provide an overview of how we are going to improve your dog’s behavior.  Depending on the issues at hand, we may do a meet and greet with your dog and give you specific homework to get started on or we may give you management and safety homework to implement first and do our first meet and greet with your dog at our first working lesson (we make this decision based on the dog–we want to start off on a good note making friends and for some dogs this requires some planning).

What students get:

  • 2 hours of instruction and information gathering
  • A folder full of applicable handouts, worksheets, instructional sheets, and more that we will go over and students can refer back to after we’ve left
  • An understanding of their dog’s behavior and help identifying triggers or stressors
  • A list of tools or management techniques that can help stabilize the situation immediately
  • Management or safety plan to implement or changes to be made to improve the situation from the get go
  • A broad overview of how we are going to help their dog learn better behaviors
  • Students are welcomed and encouraged to take any notes during our consult that they feel will help them

Client Report

For an additional $50 we can write up a detailed client report of what we talked about during the initial consultation.  We will write up the behavioral information we discussed regarding your dog, the management plan/training tools we talked about, and any other information we discussed in detail.
