Private 1-on-1 Lessons

Private 1-on-1 lessons are suitable for both puppies and adult dogs, and are focused on addressing specific areas of your dog’s life that need a calming influence! We will help your dog develop resilience and composure around triggers and challenge stimuli, including people, cars, children, dogs, other animals, and more... 
Private lessons are great for puppies and adult dogs that have high energy, hyperactivity, anxiety, aggression, an inability to settle and relax inside or outside, reactivity toward dogs, people, noises, or objects, and/or poor leash manners. Private lessons are also excellent for dogs who are fearful or anxious, and who may be overwhelmed, adrenalized, or intimidated by stimuli in the world. I regularly work with dogs who may bark out the window, "get into trouble", have difficulty with handling or grooming, who may do poorly at the veterinarian’s office, want to chase moving objects, kids, or animals, may have difficulty with guest arrival, who won’t stop jumping on or mouthing owners or guests, who pull hard on the leash, who pant, tremble, whine, or bark in the car or crate, and/or have gotten into a dog fight, etc. The list could go on and on!
During private lessons, we will develop your dog’s ability to remain calm when seeing stimulating or stressful things, to greet guests politely, and to relax inside and outside of the house around noises, objects, movement, etc. Additionally, we can focus on leash manners, coming when called, or door manners, so that your dog doesn’t pull you around, run off, or dart out the door. 
My training programs will significantly improve and resolve minor, major, pesky, or persistent problems. Together, we can solve problems that others deem "unsolvable"!

The 3-Step Scheduling Plan

Underline.png

Step 1:

Read the FAQs to learn all the details!

  • How far do you travel?
    I travel within 30 minutes of my home in Pleasant Gap, PA 16823!
  • Do you train really difficult or challenging dogs?
    Yes, I do! I recommend my behavioral training program, Social Dog Mastery™️ for dogs who display any of these behaviors: 1. More intense reactivity, leash aggression 2. Undesired behavior toward other dogs, kids, cats, livestock, vets, etc 3. General anxiety, confinement anxiety (crate), car anxiety 4. Thunderstorm phobia, sound sensitivity (fireworks, etc), fearfulness 5. Difficulty with guest arrival (growling, barking, charging toward, etc)
  • Do you train puppies?
    Yes! The Loose Leash Foundation Program™️ is suitable for puppies 6 months and older. The Off-Leash Evolution Program™️ is suitable for puppies 9 months and older.
  • Does training cost more for multiple dogs?
    If you own multiple dogs, who all live together and who need training, then additional dogs are added at a discounted rate. We can discuss the dynamics in a multi-dog household during a Next Step Phone Call! :)
  • Do my dog's vaccinations need to be up-to-date?
    Yes. Prior to your very first in-home lesson, the contract and up-to-date vaccination records will need to be submitted online. I require all dogs to be vaccinated, and up-to-date, against Rabies and Distemper/Parvo (Distemper/Parvo is commonly listed as DA2PP, DH2PP, DA2PPC, or DAPP). These are routine vaccinations. Proof of vaccinations (copy of vet bill will suffice) may be attached to the contract, or emailed to me as an attachment (especially if the file is too big to attach to the contract). You can take a photo of your vet bill with your cell phone and attach that photo to the contract (or email that photo), as long as the vet bill can still easily be read. If you are unable to get up-to-date vaccination records, online programs could be a great option for you! Otherwise, feel free to send me an email with your concerns: theincrediblek9@gmail.com
  • How are lessons scheduled on the calendar?
    We will determine a time and day of the week that is available for both of us, and then this time is blocked off on the calendar, for many weeks, as "your time." For example, imagine that Mondays from 1:00pm-2:30pm works for both of us. This time will be “your time” every Monday, from 1:00-2:30pm, for the duration of the training program. So, if we were completing the Loose Leash Foundation Program™️, then we’ll complete 3 lessons together within 4 weeks time, so I'll reserve "your time" for 4 back-to-back weeks. That extra week allows us to have some “wiggle room” to “skip” a week if severe weather, holiday travel, or illness interfere with our training efforts on any given week. Blocking off "your time" also allows for a consistent, predictable, weekly training time without always needing to “check the schedule”.
  • What happens if a lesson needs to be canceled or changed?
    We are all too busy, too sick, or traveling, at times! That’s life, and it’s completely understandable! Lessons can be changed or canceled with more than 24 hours in advance by emailing me: theincrediblek9@gmail.com. If you know that you'll need to change a lesson, then please let me know as soon as possible. Because we have an extra week of time built into the timeline, when conflicts arise, a week may just need to be “skipped” and we’ll resume again the following week, at our regular time. Lessons are often skipped around the holidays and the timeline is adjusted/lengthened to accommodate any necessary holiday time off.
  • What happens if I don’t use all of my program lessons within the timeline?
    If all lessons aren’t used within the allotted timeline, then you may lose that predictable weekly time slot, because another client may be waiting for that lesson time to become available. If you have any remaining unused lessons, then they may be scheduled at any time and day of the week, as our schedules and availability permit. However, if more than 4 weeks pass after the last completed lesson, then the remaining lessons are forfeited. No exchanges or refunds will be issued.
  • What are payment options?
    Credit cards are accepted and a payment plan is available for the Off-Leash Evolution Program™️!
  • How do I learn more about your programs and secure dates on the calendar?
    Please schedule a Next Step Phone Call, and together, we can discuss any additional questions, prices, and scheduling availability. Thank you! I look forward to speaking with you!

After your initial 1-on-1 lesson, you may choose to complete any of these programs!

Here are the options:

1) Foundation Program

This program is most popular for trouble-shooting behavioral challenges. This 1-on-1 private lesson program is suitable for both puppies and adult dogs, and is focused on addressing specific areas of your dog’s life that need a calming influence and extra attention. Lessons are catered to the needs of your family and your dog(s). Multiple dogs are no additional cost. This program includes:

2) Reliable Recall Program

This program is most popular for off-leash training! Do you dream of a dog who behaves off-leash? Who returns every time that you call? A 100% reliable off-leash recall is invaluable! This 1-on-1 private lesson program is ideal for a well-behaved dog (6 months or older) who just has selective hearing! Off-leash training is also valuable to address chasing wildlife, eating undesired objects (like socks and feces), counter surfing, digging, etc… which can now be addressed from a far greater distance than what is otherwise possible. For one dog, this program includes:

  • Total price: $1,250 (daytime lessons) - $1,500 (evening lessons)

3) Loose Leash Walking Board & Train Program

Does your dog haul on the leash? Is your dog weaving back and forth, or pulling you off the road? During this Board and Train Program, your dog lives with me for 4 days and 3 nights, so multiple loose leash training sessions can occur throughout each day. Progress occurs quickly during this time, because the dog is living with me! Additionally, we'll complete one Go-Home Lesson together, on the day that you pick up your dog. This program includes:

  • 4-day, 3-night Board and Train

    • Scheduled for either Sunday - Wednesday (or) Monday - Thursday​ 

  • ​​1-hour private Go-Home Lesson at my home ($300 value)
