Private Dog Training Lessons
Our private dog training programs specialize in behavior modification, problem solving and positive obedience guidance for dogs eight weeks and older. At Dog’s Day Out we help you train your dog with one-on-one guidance by using science based, positive reinforcement dog training methods that involve gentle techniques for your pup.
Private Dog Training is Ideal For:
- People with fluctuating or busy schedules who are having a hard time scheduling their dog into a group class.
- People with reactive dogs or dogs with behavioral issues such as aggression towards people and/or other animals.
- People whose dogs are “between” classes or missed getting into a specific group class such as Puppy Pounce or Difficult Dog.
- People with dogs that have specific issues not normally covered in a group class.
Because each dog is different, we take care to approach each private dog training session based on your dog’s temperament and what will work best for him and YOU. We begin each private session by taking a full behavioral history, evaluating the dog’s behavior and then create an appropriate training plan to cover the needs and expectations of the owner. The sessions will vary to suit your family, the dog’s temperament, environment and what you want and need from your dog.
Private dog training lessons and evaluations are available on-site at our Ballard location as well as in your own home (within a limited area).
In-home dog training areas include: Ballard, Magnolia, Fremont, Greenwood, Green Lake, Queen Anne, Georgetown, West Seattle and select areas near or in between. Dependent on trainer’s availability, arrangements may be made for out-ot service area lessons; additional costs, including any parking fees, will be applied. Both types (on-site and in-home) of one-on-one training will focus on the specific needs of your dog, ranging from management, basic obedience skills and leash work all the way to more serious reactivity and aggression issues.
Phone Consultations are also available from any location for $1/minute.
New Dog/Puppy Selection Consultations are available for people planning to get a new dog. This session is held “pre-dog” and is designed to help you pick out the best dog for you and plan the initial stages once you bring your new dog home. In this 45 minute session we will go through a variety of questions to narrow down your search and/or help you set up your home in the best way for your family and your new dog. We will let you know what exactly to expect when bringing your new dog home both in terms of management and training. Danette is also available to evaluate specific dogs you may be interested in adopting.
