We offer training and behavior modification programs for dogs of all ages and skill levels. Private training is an opportunity to address specific problem behaviors or for those who just want a little more individualized attention. Everything from basic manners and puppy training to serious behavioral issues can be addressed.

Let’s get Started!
The first step to a well-mannered dog begins with completing our free Training Orientation. Orientation introduces you to the basics of how dogs learn, our training approach, and how to prepare for your first lesson.
Next, schedule an initial consultation,* where we get to know your family, dog, and goals. At the consultation, we will ask questions, observe your dog, and develop a clear idea of what you aim to get out of training. The consultation fee is $125.
Individual follow-up sessions are charged at the hourly rates listed below or as quoted for prepaid, non-refundable packages. Each session is followed up with digital homework materials to help keep you on track between sessions.
|Training Location||Hourly Rate|
|Your Home or Neighborhood||$100.00**|
|Mellisa’s Pet Depot, Fairhaven, MA||$75.00|
|Remotely via Zoom||$67.50|
**Rates may be subject to an additional surcharge per mile, depending upon your location, to cover the cost of travel
This approach allows us to create an individualized program to meet your goals and ensure that you get the results you are looking for! Sessions are booked on your schedule, as you feel ready to move on to new material.
*Depending upon the presenting issues, this session may be waived at the discretion of the trainer. Consultations are billed at the same rate, whether in person or remotely via Zoom.
