Breakdown of Services

Private in your home training

*Many behavior issues are solved with just two in home sessions.


**All Sessions are 1 1/2 to 2 hours long but it can go longer depending on the situation. There is no additional charge if the session goes longer. Our prices are set by the sessions, not an hourly rate.

Options: 

Two sessions – Each session is tailored to your specific dog and situation. The first session always includes leash walking (Heel) with Sit and self control/patience. You can then choose based on your needs what else will be covered such as reactivity to other dogs, jumping, excessive barking or additional commands such as stay or come etc. (Typically one to two commands can be taught per session). There is no limit to what you can request as we deal with all types of behavior concerns. The amount of sessions needed will be determined by the dog’s ability and the amount of time you put in to practice.

 

Four sessions – Covers the above plus additional commands and more reliability. Heel, Sit, Automatic Sit, Stay, Down, Come. In many cases dogs are very reliable on leash with medium levels of distractions.

 

Six Sessions – Everything listed in two sessions and four sessions, plus introduction to off leash – or fully off leash depending on the dogs ability. (A remote collar must be used for off leash training, sold separately but we do carry them.)

 

Contact with your concerns and what you are looking to accomplish and I will give you an estimate of how many sessions it may require or ask to come to us for a free consult!

Board and Train


Do you feel like your dog is so stuck in its ways, you wish you could reset and start over? With my programs you can almost do just that. When your dog is removed from the environment it is used to misbehaving in, it gets a chance to start fresh.

Implementing new commands and behavior takes lots of repetition and building to distractions. I do the hard part for you! Your dog will learn commands, proper behavior, how to work under distractions and much more.

I can help you choose the program that best suits your needs. Board and train works great for busy lifestyles, resetting your relationship, or even if your going on vacation and want to get your dog trained while your gone! Dogs stay at our home environment facility in Wheat Ridge. Zen Doggy Den.

Facetime and Phone Consultations


No matter what your location, there are many ways I can assist in improving the behavior of your dog and your relationship.

Whether you need help with housebreaking, nutrition/health advice, puppy tips and more.

We can talk via phone or Facetime.

If after a consult we determine you will need some in person assistance and you are out of my area, I will assist in finding you a qualified trainer to help you.

Behavior Consultations are $50 per hour.


Board and Train options: The following is the general commands taught but it can be tailored to your needs.

*Disclaimer* You must be shown how to apply what has been taught in order for the good behaviors to continue after the dog is returned to you. It is essential that you apply the new techniques in order for the dog to understand you will remain consistent. We will spend as much time as it takes to make sure you understand how to follow through.

2 weeks: On Leash Program consisting of 2 weeks of board and train. Includes collar and leash.
Covers heel, sit, automatic sit, stay, down, come when called, self control, reduce jumping, nipping and other similar behaviors. Includes a session at completion to ensure owner knows how to follow through with training at home. One additional follow up session also included. All commands will be taught on leash for the 2 week program.

3 weeks: Depending on the individual situation 3 weeks may be required to complete the above program when there is a more specific problem to address. We will help you decide which is best or you also have the option to decide after 1 week based on our recommendation.

4 weeks: Off Leash Program: 4 weeks of board and train. This covers the same commands listed above, done on leash and off leash with the use of a remote collar. Includes collar and leash (remote collar not included, owner can purchase separately from us).

*We do not feel you can be 100% safe having your dog off leash without the use of a remote collar. There are too many variables that could potentially cause your dog to realize it is off leash and decide to ignore a command. Your dog could be hit by a car, run away or injury another. Remote collars are very safe when introduced properly and are an excellent tool to provide peace of mind when your dog is off leash.* Dogs will stay at our home environment facility in Wheat Ridge.
