PRIVATE TRAINING PROGRAMS

 

Dog owners can feel overwhelmed, irritated, confused, and frustrated when it comes to living with their dogs. Private training lessons are an ideal way to address specific issues and provide one on one guidance on how to successfully communicate and live with your dog dog. Learn handling kills, how to use your environment to better manage behavior, and master step by step instructions on teaching behaviors and problem resolution. 

Choose from either a 3, 5, 8, or 12 lesson package based on your goals and needs. Lessons are usually 45 minutes on average and are held once a week for the duration of the program. Spouses, kids, and other family members are always encouraged to join in on the fun!

If you are within the K9ology service area, lessons can be conducted from the safety and comfort of your home. If you are too far for home visits - that's ok! We can always meet at a park for our training. 

Please ensure to look over our TERMS AND CONDITIONS before committing to a program.

LITTER ASSESSMENT: FOR BREEDERS

 

Sometimes an objective assessment and temperament evaluation can make all the difference! Charlotte is here to help breeders identify different personality traits in puppies 5-8 weeks of age for:

Ideal placement in pet/performance/working/family homes 

Early intervention for pups who are shy, fearful, or lacking human engagement

Training protocols to facilitate ideal socialization and development

We use an adapted version of the Volhardt test when evaluation puppies. In addition to standard testing items, we have added further exercises and assessment criteria to give you an in-depth outlook on each dog's behavior and disposition.
