Private Session Program - At Your Home

Private Session Program - custom-designed behavioral training sessions to teach you and your family how to effectively communicate with, readily undertand and consistently train your own dog!

Upon enrollment in one of our highly-successful Private Session Behavioral Training Programs, we will come to your home, or place of business, to assist you and your family in your efforts to improve your dog's current and future behavioral disposition and obedience reliability. Because there is clearly no "one-size-fits-all" training method, we will custom-design a training program to fit the individual needs of you and your dog.

Over the course of several sessions, we will uncover what led to the development of all of your dog's undesirable behaviors and set in place a series of Behavioral Management Protocols to ensure no further negative behaviors are occurring. From there, we will install daily Behavior Modification and Control Exercises for you and your family to practice each and every day between our sessions.

Our Private Session Programs have been highly successful for owners from as far away as Pennsylvania and we travel monthly between New York City and Boston MA to help our clients maintain positive progress in the in their pursuit towards behavioral balance.  This is all part of the Program when we offer Unlimited Support for your dog's life!
