Advanced Basic Obedience includes proofing of commands and off leash. Will discuss this during our consult.*

CGC - Canine Good Citizen Test Preparation - The Canine Good Citizen class is designed to practice the 10 test items you and your dog must pass to get the AKC CGC certificate,(for details, see The pass/fail CGC test, given during the last day of class in a public setting, is the gateway to many therapy dog programs and is accepted by some landlords and insurance companies as an indication that the dog has social skills and that you and your dog work well together as a team. $125 : includes submission paperwork to AKC and a graduation patch.

I will also offer specific training for individual tasks or commands such as no leash pulling, recall, trick training, or 'leave it' for example.  Hourly rate of $40 will apply.  

Behavior Modification pertains to dog's behavior that needs intervention.  I offer advice on counter conditioning your dog's behavior and possibly modifying the households behaviors, but I do not claim to be a behaviorist.  If outside help is needed and out of my knowledge, I will refer to a certified Behaviorist near you.  Details to be discussed.  


* hourly consult fee before contract or training is assessed at $40

Please note that I do not certify or train service dogs.  I do however offer CGC and basic obedience.
