Private In-Home Training
If group training is inconvenient for you or does not suit your dog’s temperament, consider private training at your home.
There are a number of benefits of one-on-one obedience training for your dog. When your dog trains at home he/she will be more comfortable, this helps in terms of both confidence and focus. Also, private dog training offers the opportunity for you and your pet to focus since there are fewer distractions. You will get a bit more out of each training session, especially if your dog easily gets excited or distracted around others.
If you are trying to strengthen your relationship with your dog and you want intensive guidance and attention, CMC Dog Trainer’s Private In-home Training may be your best choice.
Private sessions - free assessment, then packages of either 3 ($270) or 5 ($450) sessions to put assessment plan into action.
Solutions for Reactive/Aggressive Dogs
Does your dog bark, lunge or growl when they see other dogs? Has this behavior discouraged you from taking your dog out as much as you would like? You probably find that dealing with this behavior is overwhelming and stressful. Our training is designed to teach your dog not to work up to full-blown reactions and that meeting other dogs is a positive experience. By the end of this training, you and your dog will be well on your way to reduced reactivity.
Free assessment session, then 5 sessions for $500.
