Private Training Packages

These packages focus on teaching foundational skills to you and your dog in the places where you spend the most time together.  The Foundations for Fun packages should get you and your dog off to the right start learning new behaviors and learning how to use those behaviors in different situations!  Prices listed are for training in Cape Girardeau or Jackson, MO.  If you are located elsewhere, contact me to discuss the possibility of me travelling to you and to discuss additional mileage rates.

Benefits

Comfort!  Not all dogs or people enjoy the classroom environment.  If either you or your dog are shy or react in an overly excited way to other dogs or people you and your dog will appreciate learning in the comfort of your own home.

Convenient! Everyone is super busy these days.  Who needs one more thing to leave the house for? Let me come to you! 

Effective! It is all about you and your dog!  You won’t ever have to wait for my attention and all the focus will be on you and your dog. This individualized attention will enable me to spend the whole time we have together helping you and your dog build skills you need to succeed!

Efficient! We will be working in your everyday environment which will enable me to see how you might set things up to better help you and your dog succeed. You and your dog will be learning the skills where you will be using them the most.

Works for just about anyone! Maybe you have a large family and don’t want to bring everyone to class, but it’s too difficult to get away with the dog.  This option is perfect then.  I can come to you and we can get the entire family on the same training page!

What It Isn’t 

Foundations for Fun at Home and Foundations and More are not the same as the customized private training services.  While these packages are somewhat customizable, they are a set curriculum.  We will not be creating training plans for specific behavior issues. These packages could be helpful for dealing with some everyday behavior problems but if you have a specific, everyday behavior problem you want to focus on, customized private services may be your best option.  Contact me if you have questions about which services are the best fit for your needs.

Foundations for Fun at Home

Includes: Five sessions in your home, training handouts, a clicker, a treat pouch, email support and membership in a private Foundations for Fun Facebook group for $300.

We will meet in your home five times to work on equipping you with the skills needed to teach your multiple behaviors right there in the environment where you will use them the most.

During our time together, we will get you and your dog started on multiple foundation behaviors in your home.  You will learn how to start teaching the behaviors and we will discuss how to begin getting these behaviors in other environments too.  We will practice different behaviors in different places in your house or yard to show you how to teach each behavior in a new environment to best set your dog up for success and to show you how you can use each of these behaviors in your day to day life.

Foundations and More

Includes: Eight sessions (five in your home and three at other locations you already visit with your dog or may want to visit in the future), training handouts, a clicker, a treat pouch, email support and membership in a private Foundations for Fun Facebook group for $440.

This package is just like Foundations for Fun at Home but it also includes three additional sessions where we will work outside of your home in public places where you might regularly take your dog.  This will help you learn how to take the skills you and your dog have been learning together on the road!  You’ll learn how to work with your dog in the presence of real world distractions and you’ll learn how to use some of the new skills you and your dog have been learning when you are out and about.

Examples of skills you can expect to work on in both Foundations for Fun at Home and Foundations and More include:  look at me, polite walking, targeting, come back to me, settle on mat, sit, down, leave it/take it and wait.  These packages are set curriculums.  They allow for a level of customization but if you have a specific, everyday behavior problem you want to spend the majority of time focusing on, you will want to check out the customized private services. If you have any questions about which services are best for you and your dog, don’t hesitate to contact me!
