Private, in-home training / behavior consultations

Is your pup proficient with basic obedience cues, but has some problem behaviors you’d like to address?  Maybe they dart out open doors? Jump on guests? Walk YOU on leash? Do they give you the stink eye when you call them to come?
Maybe you both could just use some professional guidance to get back in the groove? Smartypaws will come to your home (or a local park if applicable) and offer a personalized training/behavior consultation to address your individual needs.  

These consultations are $299. Additional in-home follow up sessions are $100/hr.

  • Pre-session phone interview to discuss behaviors and possible solutions
  • 1 hands-on training session lasting about 1 hr.
  • Customized written training plan with detailed instructions via e-mail
  • Phone or e-mail support and assistance at no extra charge

Private, in-home training packages

Are you looking to get your new puppy off to a great start? Does your rescued pup need some manners? Has your old dog learned some unfavorable “tricks”? From puppies to seniors (we can start as early as 10 weeks old), Smartypaws offers customized training packages that teach basic manners and guide you in achieving your training goals. Each session will: a) teach you how to communicate clearly, b) train your pup to respond attentively, and c) address unwanted behaviors effectively.

TESTIMONIALS

  • I love working with Debra at SmartyPaws. She has creative and insightful ideas to help my dog through various struggles. I've learned a lot about how to approach a problem area and think about it from the dog's perspective and how to motivate through positive training. Deb truly loves dogs and has a unique plan for each client. I also appreciate the email re-cap of our sessions and what I can work on for the next session. This has helped me to break the process down into smaller steps so that my dog and I can make progress as a team. My dog loves Deb. She makes the training process fun. I have bonded with my dog even more through the training process we've gone through. Thanks, Deb!
