Easier, better dog training results

Whatever your needs—from basic manners training to solving serious behavioral problems—I’d love to help you reach your dog training goals easily and effectively.


Two easy ways to get your dog training done

Private Tutoring:
I’ll do the training for you

If you’re busy and looking for the quickest, surest route to relief, this is it. Having your dog trained for you by a professional dog trainer means:

  • Faster results
  • Long term reliability
  • Less stress on you
  • Quick peace of mind

How Private Tutoring works:

  1. I work with your dog several times each week in your home or wherever you need better behavior
  2. You’re always welcome to watch me train, but feel free to go to work, run errands, or do whatever else needs doing*
  3. At the end of each week I meet with you to transfer my training results

* I use only positive, fun training methods so you can be sure your dog is having a great time

Private Classes: 
One-on-one in your home

If you’re looking for a more hands-on approach, private dog training classes are a great choice. Your benefits over group classes include:

  • Less impact on your schedule
  • Better results with personalized attention
  • Customized training plans focused on your needs
  • Training takes place in real life where it really counts

How Private Classes work:

  1. We work together once a week in your home or wherever you need better behavior
  2. I assign weekly training homework for you and your dog
  3. We fine tune as we go to get you the results you’re after

Whether you choose to learn to train your dog or have me train him for you, the first step is to schedule an Initial Consult. We’ll use this time together to assess your dog’s behavior and learning style, set training goals, and devise a plan for meeting them. 

Initial Consult Fee: $150


Training Packages

I’m always happy to customize training packages to individual training needs and goals, but here are a few pre-set packages I find helpful for many clients.

  BASIC MANNERS

Basic Manners

You might have specific goals like sits, downs, stays, recalls, or not pulling on leash. Or maybe more general complaints like a dog who doesn’t seem to realize you’re on the other end of her leash, who ignores you when you’re talking, or is abuzz with unbridled, unfocused, exhausting energy. I’d love to help you enjoy a calm, focused dog.

3 week Private Tutoring package: $1,260
(Includes 9 training sessions with your dog + 3 training transfer sessions with you and your dog + 2 follow ups to make sure you’re enjoying strong results)

5 hour Private Class package: $450

Fear & Aggression

Serious behavior issues are serious business. If you’re struggling with a dog who barks, growls, or lunges at other dogs or people, has trouble sharing her food dish or chews or toys, hates being left alone, suffers from fear or anxiety, or just loves people too much to keep her paws off, let’s get to work right away.

Let me get you some relief and peace of mind.

Due to the nature of behavior modification I will create a customized package specific to your needs and goals.

Let’s get your dog coming when you call—the first time you call!

Hush!

Barking is not among the more charming of dog behaviors. If your dog is shouting at you, through the fence at other dogs—in short, if your ears are ringing with dog barks—this package is for you. I’d love to help you enjoy some peace and quiet.

Dylan’s advice on leash training our adult rescue dog was life changing. He really understands dogs, and is a natural at training.

My dog Camilla and myself had a great time with Dylan. He was flexible, patient, attentive, and we both greatly benefited from his training. Bringing your first dog home can be a daunting process — Dylan provided some well-needed peace of mind and a wealth of information. Your dog will love his treats too. :)
