Private Training & Behaviour Modification

We offer private training and behaviour modification from basic behaviours to anxiety/fears/phobias, handling issues, and reactivity/aggression toward dogs or people.

For complex cases or court-mandated training, we start off with a 45min virtual consult via Zoom (video-conferencing software) to get you onto our calendar as quickly as possible and to save you time and money. Our program is chock-full of resources and education so that you can get started on the path to success on the day you register, rather than delaying the learning and behaviour changes until you see us in person.

What also makes us unique is that our discounted follow-up packages set you up for a higher success rate than anywhere else - we offer a custom virtual support system in between live sessions in order to keep the momentum and create accountability - something all of our clients have desired in the past and have found to be the key ingredient to success in training.
