Private Training and Behavior Modification 

By the session (at your home, our location, or phone/skype):

If you are having problems with raising your new puppy and the vet says puppy is too young still for class, a single private session to deal with puppy issues may be the way to go.  Housebreaking (potty training), grooming, chewing, biting, jumping up...etc usually can be handled in a single in-home session for a young pup and takes about 1.5 to 2 hours, after the first session it is only about 1 hr. The cost is $120 per session within 30 minutes of Santa Clarita, Arleta, Woodland Hills, or Port Hueneme, CA.  Karen just moved to the Oxnard area and she has a special price nearly half off for her new neighbors.. introductory special!  Make sure to call 818 996 3647 or email k9frend@earthlink.net for more info! Sometimes we can arrange to meet you close to where we are going to be for $20 less per session!

If you just need Basic obedience, behavior modification, manners, tricks, etc. - we teach you to use positive reinforcement to obedience train your dog, or modify his/her behavior- daily owner practice required.  *No extra charge for additional dogs in same household, up to three as long as you have additional handlers. 

If you are experiencing problem behavior with an adult dog such as escaping, digging, chewing, excessive fear, fear biting, food guarding, toy guarding, separation anxiety, or issues handling multiple dogs or "dog to dog" aggression, we can help you with that privately.  In many cases we can help you in a single session (about 1.5 to 2 hours) followed by group training.  If we feel you would need multiple training sessions we can give you an estimate of how many sessions we think it will take based on our experience with other dogs that have had similar issues. The Cost is $120 per session within 30 minutes of Santa Clarita, Arleta, Woodland Hills, or Port Hueneme, CA. Sometimes we can arrange to meet you close to where we are going to be for $20 less per session!

Sometimes money is just so tight that you just cannot afford the training, there is a last ditch option at about a dollar a minute... phone/skype advice.  We are here for you and happy to help.  We do not recommend training by this method because we cannot observe your dogs behavior, and while you probably know your dog pretty well, you don't know dog behavior like we do!  People often ask if we are 'psychic' because we can often tell you what your dog is thinking, literally!  We don't have that luxury on the phone, and unfortunately, that can cause a misinterpretation of something because we are depending on your ability to translate your dog's body language, or responses to training techniques, properly.  For situations where it is something routine though, we can often "get you thru the night."

Training Packages for you and your dog (4, 6 or 10 session):

If we can't help you in a single session, we may suggest a training package for better value.  You may choose a four, six or ten session package anywhere from $340-900 per package. Come to us for $20 less per session.  Remember also, once you have done a class or a package with us your private session is $15 less (we call it a package discount).

Intensive in-home training (25 sessions, we train without you):

One last option, we can come to you daily and train your dog for 5 weeks... this includes once a week to train you and your family, and 3-4 sessions with your dog per week.   The same basic commands listed above, or specified by you.  We only do this for people within 5 miles of one of the trainers.  The cost for this is $2050.00.  You don't even have to do the practicing with this one, just follow the maintenance instructions exactly!  Call to set up the first session. PRICE is quoted PER DOG . We can work out a discount for additional dogs in the same household who are being trained at the same time.   (25 sessions over 1-2 mos.)

On Board Training

On Board Training - Perfect for dogs who need help socializing at daycare, or for owners who just don't have time to train, will be away on vacay, or busy on a job, but who would love to work with us weekly, and practice what we teach your dog when the dog comes home!   We do all our boarding and training (except for young pups or problem dogs) at Pampered Pet Hotel and PAWparazzi!  The fee is 65. 00 per day (45 minute session) at Pampered Pet and can be scheduled by calling the facility to book the boarding and either have them call us, or you can, to schedule the training portion (discounts do not apply). If you would like to schedule boarding and training call them directly at 818 340 2275 for Woodland Hills Pampered or 818 860 0729 for PAWparazzi.
