IN-HOME DOG TRAINING

FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY!

$280 for 1.50 hours (1 dog)

$400 for 2 hours (2 dogs)  

Training your dog starts at your home and this is why I'd recommend for you to try my 1.50 Hr In-Home Training where I come to your home and work with everyone in your family including children (if any). 


My In-Home Training includes loose leash walking where I will take you and your dog around your neighborhood and address your dog's leash pulling, grabbing of the leash and jumping on other people. We'll also go through various training exercises in your home focusing on your dog's specific behavior and obedience concerns; such as, mouthing, jumping, barking, potty issues, crate training and more!

We Specialize In Improving Reactivity.

We specialize at improving and countering dog reactivity towards other dogs, people, and things. Everyday we work with dogs who suffer from t​he same discomfort. Their fears make walks difficult for the both of you and it’s not as uncommon as you think. We’ve worked with hundreds of dog families just like yours to make dog walks more manageable and fun. Don’t give up! There is work to be done! Let dOgBEDIENCE personally coach you along the way.  ​

WHAT IS DO​G REACTIVITY?

When owners see their dog pulling, lunging, and b​arking towards other dogs they often label them as aggressive. Some may in fact be aggressive in combination, but many won’t resort to any truly aggressive behaviors. These dogs are afraid or stressed and they’re making it known the best way they know how. We coin these barky-pully friends as reactive. Think of yourself when you see a spider on the wall next to you, or a snake on a gravel path. Simply p​ut, a reactive dog is a dog who displays disorderly symptoms caused by a negative emotional response to another dog, person, bike, child, or other stimulus.​ Walking your frightened friend can be difficult, frustrating, and isolating. Everyday we see dogs passing by so calmly, meanwhile your dog "Courage" is being a cowardly dog.

WHAT WE CAN DO​ TO HELP

Improving reactivity is o​ur specialty! Our method offers a positive approach to a negative situation; makes sense right? You’ll learn how to set your dog up for success with safe handling techniques, proper positioning, timing, and threshold management. In doing so, you’ll create opportunities to counter your dog's negative respo​nse and begin to replace it with a positive one. Through repetition--we’ll begin to address underlying symptoms that traditional dog training (shock, prong, or chain collars) cannot address; and by the way, we do not use  these aversive collars. We strive to serve you and your dog's reactivity conundrum with whatever unique support and information you require.​ 

HOW LONG D​OES TRAINING TAKE?

Alas, reactivity can be time consuming and there is no cle​ar answer to how long it can take. The amount of time and effort you invest combined with your dogs age, motivation, and level of stress can effect recovery duration. Some dogs speed through recovery while others are the slower tortoise in the race. With this in mind, when you work with dOgBEDIENCE, you do every​thing we do, training is our shared responsibility. You’ll learn the figurative tools necessary to improve Scooby’s aversion to ghosts and ghouls. When we say goodbye you feel confident in your ability to continue to improve old and new behavior.

About Me

In 2009, I adopted a 4 month old Rottie who became my inspiration in training dogs. My then newly adopted pup was born with a chronic auto immune disease (Addison's) and a challenging behavior. It wasn't easy for my family in the beginning but I could not and would not give up on him. He lived for 7 years and he paid me back a thousandfold. ...
