Dog Training with Kate

Group classes are a great way for you and your dog to learn to communicate with each other.
But group class may not be appropriate for some dogs and humans.
Private training sessions can be tailored to your needs and the needs of your dog.

Some of the advantages of private training:

  • Undivided attention
  • One-on-one instruction
  • Customized instruction
  • Your choice of location
  • Scheduling for your convenience

During private training sessions, I can:

  • Evaluate your dog for inclusion in a group obedience classes
  • Introduce and show you how to implement obedience commands effectively
  • Address behavioral problems
  • Assist you in following up with recommendations from behavioral consultations

Training sessions can focus on things such as:

Have a different issue? Call or email and let’s talk about it.

Occasionally, I may recommend that an owner contact their veterinarian to verify that a behavior problem may or may not be caused by a health problem. Medications can also cause behavior changes.

What to bring: If your dog has some health challenges, is on medications, or has some physical disabilities, please have a copy of his medical information available. If you were referred to me by your veterinarian, please let me know his/her name and contact information. Bring any training tools or aids that you have been using or have used in the past. If your dog is aggressive in any way, please bring him to the appointment wearing a muzzle.
