Why invest in private training?
- Given that dogs learn most efficiently in a distraction-free environment, in-home training allows the trainer to fully focus on you and your dog, rather than managing a class full of dogs and their people.
- Since dogs’ relationships are rooted in the home environment, it is crucial to begin there to ensure that relationships and behavior are first assessed and addressed in the appropriate context in order to provide a comprehensive behavior evaluation and training plan.
- My job as a trainer is only partially to train the dog. My main goal is really to train the owner to work with the dog. With private training, I can create a training program that fulfills the needs and styles of each dog's family. I have worked with families in San Francisco, Marin and throughout the Bay Area for over twenty years and feel that this component - the people training - is what makes me ultimately successful with dogs. I love working with owners and their dogs to build better relationships.
All of my trainings begin with a comprehensive behavior consultation in your home. During this initial consultation, I will meet your puppy or dog and evaluate his or her temperament and personality. Afterwards, I will make recommendations as to the best course of training for you and your dog.
