Private Dog Training Options

Private dog training or sessions are the best way to address many behavioral issues such as fear, aggression, resource guarding, and anxiety. Private dog training sessions are offered at your home, or virtually.

Due to the extreme popularity of this program, payment is due in full at the time of registration and has a strict cancellation policy.


Please contact us to schedule your initial consult today! 


Initial Session:
With Maddi: $80
With Valarie (Issues such as generalized anxiety, fear, reactivity, aggression): $95

All initial sessions are done virtually using Google Meet. During an initial private session, we will go over your concerns and goals in-depth, create an action plan, and set you and your dog up to be successful in changing their behavior. Virtual sessions are excellent for dogs with issues with visitors coming in the home or those owners in the at-risk category for Covid-19. These sessions are still VERY effective. You will need a computer with a webcam or a mobile phone with a camera.

You will need a computer with a webcam or a mobile phone with a camera. This initial appointment is for human-directed aggression or intra-household dog-to-dog aggression.


Training Packages

We recognize that our fees are not cheap! Nothing of quality is. We strive to be the best-educated and experienced canine behavior experts we can be. You won’t find better, more educated, and caring trainers in Cuyahoga County. We are in high demand for a reason and our fees reflect the quality of expertise we provide.


However, we want to reward those that are dedicated to their dogs and training them with kindness, love, and science. So, we have developed some package deals that will help with costs.


During follow-up sessions, we will assess how our action plan is working and develop the next steps.

During a 30 minute Walk n Train a trainer comes to your home and works directly with your dog. This is an excellent option for busy families or to reinforce what your dog is learning. This must be paired with our one-on-one sessions. It is just as important for you to learn as it is for your dog. This session is done at your home.
