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 $130 per session, within a 20 minute drive of Northridge, Woodland Hills, or Port Hueneme, CA. Sometimes we can arrange to meet you close to where we are already going to be for a little discount!
If you just need Basic obedience, behavior modification, manners, tricks, etc. - we teach you to use positive reinforcement to 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.
Yes, we help train Therapy dogs, emotional support and Service dogs.
Yes, we can do Agility, Confirmation and Rally Obedience privately!
Yes, we can teach and test for all levels of AKC-CGC and STAR Pup, Tricks, and Urban Dog
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. We specialize in problem behavior! Including human, and dog, aggression.
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. We base this on our experience with other dogs that have had similar issues, or on your progress after session one! The cost is $150 per session within 20 minutes of Northridge, Woodland Hills, or Port Hueneme, CA. We will travel between Oxnard and Encino but there may be a travel fee outside of the 20 minute zones.
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 typically $75. We are here for you and happy to help. We do not recommend training by solely by Skpe or Phone because we cannot always observe your dog's behavior fully 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 misinterpretation 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, we can often "get you thru the night" with a phone call!

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 $460-1000.00 per package. Remember, once you have done a class, or a minimum of a 4 session package with us, your private session is $15 less than full price for a single session (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 four times a week for 5 weeks, and train your dog ... 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 $2300.00. 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 Woodland Hills - 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!
