I offer a variety of private and semi-private lessons at your home, or at the location where training is needed. Please click here for rates and fees. Below are some of the unique services I offer in the greater Toronto area:
Customized Private Lessons
Customized private lessons can be created based on both you, and your dog’s needs. Depending on what you’re hoping to achieve, and your commitment to your dog’s training, you may need weekly, bi-weekly or even monthly sessions. After each session you will get a detailed email with homework and tips to work on in between each session.
Below are just some of the areas I specialize in:

Preparing For A Second Dog
Getting a second dog can be extremely fulfilling for both you and your current furbaby, but can also end in disaster if you haven’t prepared for it adequately. Its extremely important that you prepare your current pup to be trained to the best of their abilities before bringing a second dog home, otherwise, your current problems will only become doubled once your second bundle of joy arrives.
Dog Park Etiquette
This is for every dog owner who would love to learn about the body language and signs of a dog that could be a potential danger to your dog at the off leash park. Unfortunately, not all dogs that frequent the dog park are friendly or safe to be around.
For those of you who have the dog that you might think is a danger to others; Does your dog have trouble at the dog park getting along with other dogs? Does your dog get into fights, or just plain old not listen to you when you call them? Do you have a leash reactive dog and you are unsure if they are capable of being polite with other dogs off leash at the dog park? I can help you get your dog socialized and we’ll behaved while at the dog park.
Walk & Train
Has your dog been rejected by a dog walker due to behavioural issues? I offer dog walk & train sessions to get your dog prepared for walking with a regular dog walker. I simultaneously walk and train your dog for one hour, working with any specific issues they might have while walking on a leash. The goal of these sessions is to eventually get your dog back into a regular dog walkers pack.
Don’t Live In Toronto?
Don’t worry, I offer Skype Consultations. For these consultations to be effective, it is important that you have some videos of your pups behaviour that you would like to modify. Skype consultations must be done over video chat, so that I can see your dog’s living environment, and see how you and your family interact with your pup while at home.
