In-Home, Private Training for Dogs of All Ages

The benefit of in-home training is the one on one attention given to you and your relationship with your dog. You will learn how to create a lasting positive bond with your dog by communicating effectively and teaching basic training cues. You can get the dog that you want and have fun doing it!

Private training is also effective when there are behavior issues that are in need of modification and a class is too distracting for your dog.  Learn how to resolve problem behaviors such as:

  • house soiling
  • resource guarding (guarding toys, bones, beds, etc.)
  • excessive barking
  • separation anxiety
  • reactivity (aggression)
  • leash pulling

Joana teaches you the skills and tools you will need to help modify your dog's behavior.
