- Coming when called, no matter the distraction
- Sit, Down, Stand, and Stay – no matter what
- Walking nicely on leash and /or heeling on leash
- Proper greeting behaviors for people and other dogs
- Place training (mat or Kennel training)
- Boundary training (at doors or gates)

Private training is available to dogs of any size, breed or age (starting as young as eight weeks). Multiple dogs in one household may be included in the training package, and all family members are encouraged to participate.
Training begins with an initial consultation (1 1/2 to 2 hours) to assess your needs and design a training plan. The consultation includes your first training lesson.
Please fill out the CONTACT FORM, with a detailed description of the behavior problem, and we will contact you within 48 hours to further discuss your case and schedule a consultation.
Discounted packages are available for multiple sessions, when purchased at the initial consultation. Cost for the initial consultation is $200. After separate initial consultations, training packages may be shared with a friend or neighbor (meeting at the same time and location).

Behavior Modification Programs
Communication builds trust – Control breeds fear. At Canine Coach we address your dog's behavior problems in a holistic approach by assessing the dog's breed, age, temperament and lifestyle.
At Canine Coach our goal is to treat the problem, not just the symptoms. Many behavior problems stem from normal, natural, and often necessary dog behaviors being performed in an inappropriate way. You will learn how to reward the behaviors you want while ignoring (when appropriate), preventing or redirecting, the behaviors you don't want. Behaviors such as barking, digging, destructive chewing, counter surfing or food stealing, and house soiling, can often be addressed in a single visit. Fear and temperament-based behaviors such as separation anxiety, phobias, resource guarding, and other forms of aggression directed at people or other dogs will require a significant amount of time, effort, patience and commitment. In addition, a medical assessment from your veterinarian may be required before proceeding with a behavior evaluation. Severe cases may be referred to a veterinary behaviorist.
