Even dogs of the same breed can require a different approach to changing behaviour. We need to look at the full picture to develop a successful game plan. Training is an essential way to create clear communication but won't be effective if you do not make changes to your environment that can contribute to behavioural problems.

There are 4 important contributors to dog behaviour:

1. Breed and age

2. Temperament and Disposition 

3. Environment 

4. Health and Diet

Many behavioural problems could have been resolved before your puppy turned 4.5 months old. So, the earlier you start with a realistic game plan suitable to your situation and dog, the easier it is to achieve lifelong results. If you have a puppy or adolescent dog, you should consider purchasing a package so you have all the information required to raise a well adapted dog. 

During private training we will get started with all relevant information, and discuss realistic goals and come up with a training and management plan for you, followed by as many lessons as needed to reach your training goals. This one-on-one format works especially well for fear, separation anxiety, new puppy foundation & training for your dog. 

Please note: if your dog is aggressive towards people or dogs you will need to book a Zoom consultation. 

To be prepared for a private session it's recommended to book a  Zoom first and then a private. Privates can be either in your home, at my place or off site depending on your situation. 


After your Zoom or first session, you will receive a written game plan that is suitable to you and your dog's specific needs.

A $20 nonrefundable payment is required to confirm your appt. You can pay the remaining fee after your appointment by cash or e-transfer to First appointments usually take 1.5 hours. Please add 5% GST. 

Please add this email to your contact so they do not go to your junk mail. 

An additional charge of $20 will be applied to travel over 30-40 kms and $30 for travel over 40km. 


Zoom is required if your dog is jumping or overreacting to guests to help you with developing a game plan. It will include video examples and a recording of your session in addition to your game plan as per above. This will get you set up for a more effective private training session and mandatory if your dog is aggressive towards humans or dogs. I do not take clients with dogs that have a history of biting another human but can give you a game plan to help you right away.

A $20 nonrefundable payment is required to book and the remainder of the payment is required after booking so you can receive an email with a link to your Zoom appointment.  


Please make sure you have the Zoom app downloaded on your device before your appointment to avoid delays. They are 40 mins.
