Every dog wants to be a Lucky Dog!

Doggy Home School

What is doggy home school?

Do you want a better trained dog but simply don’t have the time for classes and homework with your busy schedule? Let me do the training for you! I will come to your home and train your dog 3 days a week even while you are away at work. Each week of training includes a session at the end of the week for me to teach you and your family what I taught your dog that week so that you can maintain the behavior. 


Here’s how it works:

· We get to know each other: I come to your home to meet you and evaluate your dog’s behavior. Together we will determine your training priorities and then design a custom training program to meet your needs. This session will last about an hour and costs $50. If you sign up for training this is included in the program price. 

· Written Agreement: We will have a written agreement of training plans and goals so everyone knows what to expect.

· I train your dog:  I will come to your home 3 days each week for one hour and work with your dog. You are welcome to watch if you are home but I won’t involve you much during this time. You may even be at work during these sessions.

· I train you: One day towards the end of each week I will meet with you and your family to do a lesson for you. I will train you how to maintain and build on the things I have taught during the week.
