Private Lessons

One on One training with you and one of our trainers. We will discuss goals you have, training expectations, and make sure we can fit a program to your end goal. To get started with private lessons create a pet portal and well do an email consult going over our programs for private lessons to determine what will fit best with your household. Please note for in person consults our fee is $110, phone consults are free but we do ask you email us at vk9scheduling@gmail.com to set up a time!

One hour Consult training session $110

Meet with one of our trainers for a one hour hands on training session. During this time we will go over a possible training plan, answer questions, give training suggestions, trouble shoot behaviors as well as provide you with a written program you can follow along at home once the consult is completed! - if you decide to book a program after this consult lesson we will use this consult lesson as your first lesson and deduct the price of the consult from the lesson program! Due to the nature of behavior modification programs we do ask that you contact us to discuss program customization and pricing.
