Delightful Dog Private Lesson Program (Basic Manners)

Our Delightful Dog Program starts with an initial consult (1.5 hours) to teach you the basics of how to train and get everyone started on the same “paw”. The program is then 5 additional lessons (50 minutes), the first three lessons are weekly and then the last two lessons are every other week. (This is a suggested schedule, it can be tailored to your needs) This 6 lesson package covers the “basic behaviors” of dog training like sit, down, polite leash walking, give, wait, settle, and leave it. Our goal is to teach you how to teach these behaviors to your dog. Six lessons worth of training will not forever train your dog, but once you know how to train your dog, you can train through any future training problem.    Delightful Dog Program starts at $720
