The last dog trainer you'll ever need - guaranteed!
Note: There is currently about a 2-month wait to work with us. That may sound like a long wait, but it'll be here before you know it. Please don't make the mistake so many of our clients make of wasting money on subpar trainers in a rush to get help only to end up calling us back up months later still struggling with the same issues. This happens FAR too often. We promise we're worth the wait and the very last trainer you will ever need!
All our services begin with a free phone consult to make sure we're a good fit and get all your questions answered risk-free! During this consult, we'll give you our best tips to get started on your training goals immediately so you don't have to wait until your lesson to start making progress. Take a glance below at our services and prices, then click here to get started.
All our training includes LIFETIME SUPPORT via text, phone, or email. Clients are welcomed to send videos of their training efforts for further guidance at any time! We are never satisfied until you get the results you desire.
Virtual Dog Training (best value!)
Let's be real here. Most of what we do is actually training PEOPLE how to get the behaviors they want from their dogs and that's exactly what you'll get out of these live video calls using either Zoom, FaceTime, or whatever platform works best for you. Working virtually enables me to offer one-on-one training at a lower price point, and we truly are able to work through just about any issue this way (even leash manners, reactivity, and aggression... yes, REALLY)!
I will start by explaining your current situation from your dog's perspective so you have an understanding of what you may have been unintentionally miscommunicating previously. Then I'll describe in detail what I want you to do, and will provide verbal guidance while watching you implement the techniques with your dog, the same as we would do in an in-person lesson. As needed, I will demo the techniques using one of my own dogs or client dogs in boarding.
We are currently offering virtual private lessons in the following options:
Single 1-hour virtual lesson .......... $225
Pkg. of (3) 1-hr virtual lessons ...... $600
Please know that our special low-level e-collar training program (as described further down this page) is now being offered in this virtual format as well and has shown similar success to the in-person version! This is a VERY unique opportunity for you to obtain this level of training at a much lower price!
6-lesson virtual program ............ $1100
Low-level e-collar set …................. $199
In-Home Private Lessons (most popular)
Private lessons take place in the comfort of your own home. They last about an hour and a half and can cover any issue you wish you address. Private lessons are best for addressing:
Basic obedience commands (sit/stay, down/stay, come, heel, place) for dogs not ready for group class or requiring special attention
Behavior problems such as poor leash manners, reactivity, aggression, separation anxiety, mouthiness, jumping up, barking, not listening, or other unwanted behavior
Preparing for a new dog or puppy in the household
Managing conflict in a multi-dog household
Teaching your dog how to leave your cat alone
Learning a clearer system of communication with your dog
Gaining a better understanding of how your dog thinks, why he does what he does, and how to get him to listen to you
There are two options for purchasing private lessons. The package discount is available for lessons paid for together as a package only.
Single 1.5-hr lesson ........................ $299
(3) 1.5-hr lessons package ............ $749 ($150 savings!)
Low-Level E-Collar Training (our speciality!)
This is a very special and highly effective hands-on course that teaches you, the pet owner, how to gently and humanely e-collar train your dog in the comfort of your home with the goal of off-leash reliability through distractions by the end of 6 lessons! If you want a dog you can take places, this is the program for you!

Board & Train (currently not available)
Board & Train is essentially a boot camp that takes place in our home (yes, our actual home, not a kennel facility). For dogs that need a behavioral overhaul and clients with little time for training, this may be the way to go! Please contact us for more details about this program, as it is completely customized for each client's specific needs. Board & Train is offered at a minimum duration of 3 weeks, although longer stays may be required depending on the dog and training needed. To insure your dog's continued success once he/she goes home, our Board & Train program includes 3 private sessions of after care!
**We only take two dogs at a time for Board & Train so space is very limited and often books months in advance.**
Board & Train (3 weeks) ............. $4,500
Additional weeks (per week) ..... $1,500
Low-level e-collar set ..................... $199
Walking Manners Group Class
This class is for anyone whose dog pulls, barks, or doesn't have the best manners when walking near other dogs or people. It is also great for dogs that are shy or wary of other people or dogs, as well as those that are easily excitable.
This is entirely a standing and walking class so be sure to wear comfortable shoes and dress to be outside. The entire goal of this class is to help each dog practice self restraint and good walking manners around other dogs. The class does not involve physical interaction of dogs. The purpose is to teach your dog to see other dogs in a "neutral" way as opposed to something to become excited or worried about. All dogs are respected to progress through this class at their own pace. Attendees of this class must have had at least one private or virtual lesson with us prior to the class.
4 week class ................................... $160
Next class day/time: Mondays at 7:30pm (Reactive dogs welcome!)
Next start date: TBA (after summer)
Location: West Hills, CA
