We are currently offering group classes in
Brighton, East Rochester, and Webster.
We’ll come to your home to discuss your short-term and long-term goals for your dog. With your dog present, we’ll show you what to start working on, and you’ll get some practice. After we meet, you’ll receive a written training plan via email, as well as phone and email support as needed.
After your initial consultation, we can recommend future services to help support your goals. We also have the following packages available:
Reactivity package - for dogs who bark, lunge, or growl at other dogs on walks
Initial consultation + follow-up + bundle of 8 intensive training sessions = $875
Puppy Starter package - for puppies under 4 months
Initial consultation + bundle of 16 day training sessions = $1250
New Adoption package - for dogs who have been adopted in the last 2 months
Initial consultation + 2 follow-up coaching sessions = $450
After you’ve had some time to work on the training plan provided, we can meet again to assess progress, review training skills, and walk you through next steps. You’ll receive an updated training plan after the consultation.
A full behavior consultation from the safety of your own home. We’ll use Google Meet to communicate via video call. We will discuss goals, behavior modification techniques, and we will create a personalized training plan that you’ll receive via email. Phone and email support between appointments is included.
Initial consultation $150 (45-60 minutes)
Follow-up sessions $100 (30-45 minutes)
New Adoption Package - available to dogs who have been adopted within the past 2 months

A great and more effective alternative to “board and train” programs. Your dog gets to stay in your home, but you see a swift change in their behavior with minimal effort on your part. We’ll come to your home during the day to work with your dog 1-on-1. You can often see results after just 1-2 weeks, even without setting aside the time to do the bulk of the training yourself!
Basic Manners Day Training: This option is best suited for building life skills like sit, down, walking on a loose leash, coming when called, stay, impulse control, and socializing puppies. After establishing the desired behavior change, we’ll plan a transfer lesson to show you what we’ve been working on and set you up for success to continue reinforcing the right behavior without us there.
Intensive Day Training: For intensive training, we meet once or twice weekly. If we meet twice weekly, for one of the sessions, we can work with your dog solo to help pave the way for your practice days. The other day we would meet and practice together. This is great for issues beyond basic manners, such as - dog reactivity, fearful behavior, or resource guarding - or for when you just want to make progress as quickly as possible.
Upgrade any day training appointment to a 1.5 hour decompression walk session for an additional $50!
Only available after an initial consultation.
You can pay individually at each session ($75) or you can purchase in bulk to get a discount:
8 sessions $580 total (save $20)
12 sessions $840 total (save $60)
16 sessions $1090 total (save $110)

We all want our dogs to have the happiest life possible and that is one of the goals of this class! We will give you the skills to effectively improve your canine communication, so that your dog learns your expectations and vice versa! Each week we will introduce training exercises for you to practice at home and we will discuss other topics that will deepen your understanding of your dog’s experience. Topics to be covered include: basic manners skills (sit/down, stay, walking on a loose leash, and many more), impulse control exercises, dog body language basics, and enrichment strategies. Our ultimate goal is to enhance and strengthen the bond you have with your dog.

Time to level up! Tougher training exercises in level 2 help build compliance in high distraction environments.

We'll spend 3 weeks exploring how you can bond with your dog by training trick behaviors and playing training games. Whether you and your dog just love training, or you want to increase their enrichment or boost their confidence, this class won't disappoint. Training tricks and playing games can be fun for both the youngest puppies and the most dignified of senior dogs.
