Private Lessons are available in your home (or a location of
your choosing) for clients in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tempe,
Glendale, Peoria, and Surprise (please call for availability).  
Regular private sessions last approximately (60-90 minutes)
and can be tailored to fit your needs.  Extended private
lessons (2-3 hour session) are recommended for multiple dogs
and/or many issues that need to be addressed at one time.
Private lessons are what we generally recommend for any
aggression issues and for puppies too young to attend group

Board & Train is an option that is available in selected
cases only
....honestly, I usually advise AGAINST this training
option. Please call to discuss your specific situation if
you feel this is the route you would like to take.  For this
type of training, your dog would come and live in
my house
during training -- once the training is complete, you will be
given a detailed diary of what your dog has learned and be
taught how to continue training him/her.  This type of training
will ONLY work if you continue the training on your own
exactly as you are instructed to do.  Dogs are intelligent
creatures that tend to learn very quickly what they can get
away with...if you send your dog away for training, but do not
change what you are doing at home, the dog will almost
always fall back into bad habits when it returns.  
Starting pri
for this service is $75/day and a minimum of two weeks
of boarding/training
is usually recommended.  After 2 weeks
of board/train, a
one private lesson is included at no charge
when your dog is returned to you.
