Prerequisites

  • There are no pre-requisites for private lessons EXCEPT AGGRESSION CASES (see below)


Aggression related issues

We define aggression as being when a dog is lunging, trying to bite or has bitten another person or dog

  • Please note that Private Lessons do NOT address aggression related issues
  • We do work with Aggression Related cases, but though our Aggression Rehab program HERE.
  • If your dog has completed the Behavior Evaluation, and been cleared, then you may continue with Private Lessons.
  • If you fail to disclose your dog has been aggressive, we may cancel, suspend or stop the lesson, and you will still be billed.
  • Please understand this is for the safety of our staff
  • We are more than happy to work with you on aggression issues; we just need to follow our Safety Protocols
  • Please note we do NOT turn dogs away due to aggression issues.


Equipment

  • You will only need a leash and collar to start.
  • Please don't purchase anything additional until you have chatted with us.
  • We will gladly guide you in what you need to train.


What do I need for my first lesson

  • For your first lesson, you may need a leash and a collar.
  • Your instructor will discuss various options for equipment.


Can children participate or train in lessons

  • We encourage kids to participate in training of their dogs
  • Most of the instructors have been training since childhood, so this is important to us.
  • We do have some important limitations:
  • We define children to be anyone under 18 years of age
  • Children actively participating in lessons should to be at least 8 years of age (Instructors can approve younger kids)
  • Children need to be behaved, cooperative, willing and happy to be involved - no pressure from parents!
  • Parents MUST be PRESENT at all times during lessons
  • Finally, parents MUST READ this article on prey drive


Duration of Lesson

  • The initial one or two lessons run a little longer, generally around two hours in duration
  • This allows us to get to know you, and you to get to know us
  • It also allows the trainer to build a relationship with your dog, before they get down to structured training.
  • It gives you the chance to discuss your needs, and ask tons of questions.
  • Subsequent lessons are generally 1 hour.
  • If you have specific needs, these can be addressed with your trainer.
