Private Lessons allow dogs and handlers to progress at their own pace. Private lessons are ideal for those who are unable to attend scheduled group classes, and for dogs who require individual attention to address specific problems. Private lessons are conducted in your own home, which allows the dog to learn in a familiar, non-distractive environment.  The format and curriculum is based on your dog's individual needs and your personal goals.
