SERVICE DOG PRIVATE LESSONS
Our goal is to build your dog’s confidence level and desire to work in a variety of public settings.
We offer private lessons for you and your service dog or service dog in training in the comfort of your home or in a public space. These lessons are best suited for dogs at least 6 months of age.
We are able to work on a variety of things including basic and advanced skills, proofing behaviors in different locations while adding duration, distance and distractions, socialization and exposure to multiple environments, task work, and practicing public access skills.
We require all potential clients wanting to start their dog in our Service Dog Private Lessons to complete our Service Dog Evaluation. This takes place in a public setting, and allows us to see how your dog reacts to different stimuli in a new environment. The $50 evaluation charge does go towards the cost of a Private Lesson Package or Program of your choosing if they successfully pass the Evaluation.
Our Private Lesson services are offered for clients who reside in the greater Phoenix area.
We are sometimes able to assist clients outside of our service area for an additional fee of $2/per mile for zip codes 20 miles outside of 85258.
