Cincinnati private, individualized dog training

My goal for in home dog and puppy training is to help you not only solve your current dog behavior problems, but to also help you prevent future problems with a commitment to using the most positive strategies possible. As a training coach, I see my role as a teacher whose job it is to strengthen and inspire my clients’ knowledge, skills, and problem-solving abilities. That goes for both my human and non-human students!

In-home dog training has many benefits including:

  • It is not a cookie cutter approach. I help you work toward your specific goals, customized for your specific dog and situation.
  • Training occurs in your home or in the environment, there the problem is most likely to occur; and also, where your dog may be the most comfortable.
  • Flexible scheduling.
  • By teaching you how to be a fun and engaging teacher, you will also see a more attentive pet that chooses to listen to you more.

Plan for 1.5 to 2 hours for our first visit. Additional visits for one dog are approximately one hour. Private sessions can be done in your home, your neighborhood, or another location conducive to meeting your training goals.

To be most effective, this is a great option for you if you can commit to a weekly lesson with me (and homework outside of appointments) for a minimum of four weeks in the beginning; as building these good habits takes practice and consistency.

If you do not have time to do all of the training yourself, no problem, as your dog’s coach I can also be your dog’s homeschool teacher. Day training is great for teaching or strengthening specific behavior skills such as loose leash walking, crate training, sit/down/settle/stay and more. As part of the day training package, once a week, I will teach you how to maintain and even strengthen your pet’s skills.
