Initial Consultation & Behavioral Assessment

  • This is the first step to training a better-behaved dog. Lisa will meet with you and your dog for approximately 90 minutes, conduct a detailed interview about your dog’s history and behavior, clarify your training goals, and assess your dog’s behavior. Based on this meeting, Lisa will design a training plan to efficiently and effectively teach your dog polite manners and/or modify fearful or aggressive behavior. Training notes are available for those clients who would like them.

Training Sessions

  • After the Initial Consultation, Lisa will work with you and your dog privately in hour-long training sessions, and show you step-by-step easy and fun exercises to train your dog.
  • Day Training available (see below).
  • Discounts available for dogs adopted from shelters and rescues.

Day Training

No time to train your dog? Day training may be the solution for you. Lisa trains your dog during the day, leaving you more time for work, play and relaxation. After Lisa’s trained your dog, she shows you in a few easy steps how to maintain the behaviors she’s taught him. Some behaviors aren’t conducive to day training. Contact Lisa to see if day training’s right for you and your dog.

Phone Consultations

Need help with your dog right away? Lisa does phone consultations with clients to provide immediate help with doggy behavior. Clients may schedule phone consultations of 30 minutes or 60 minutes in length. During the phone call, Lisa may suggest an in-person consultation to better assess your dog’s behavior and provide you with the best training strategies.

Benefits of Private Training

  • Personalized attention & expertise. You and your dog receive 100% of Lisa’s time & attention in each training session.
