5/31/21 UPDATE: I AM RESUMING IN-HOME TRAINING IN LIMITED AREAS (Danville, Alamo, Walnut Creek, Lafayette, Orinda, Pleasant Hill, Martinez and parts of Concord).



Private In-Home Training (Resuming 6/1/21 in limited areas):  I will happily come out to your home to work with your family on ANY behavioral or training issue you have, including:

 

--Greeting at door and/or jumping up

--Destructiveness or anxiety when left

--Aggression

--Reactiveness or social issues with other dogs, cats or people

--Basic obedience like sit, down, stay and come

--Walking on leash

--Housetraining and house manners (chewing, digging, etc.)

--Advanced obedience and preparation for Rally and CGC testing

 

I regularly travel to the following towns: Danville, Walnut Creek, Pleasant Hill, Alamo, Lafayette, Martinez, Orinda and parts of Concord.  Travel to other areas including Pleasanton, San Ramon, Dublin and Moraga may be arranged upon request but depends on scheduling and availability.

 

Puppy Classes:  I offer six-week group sessions (and also accelerated five-week sessions for smaller groups) for puppies 13 weeks-5.5 months old.  We will cover the following in class: sit, down, stay, come, heel, loose leash walking, leave it, watch, wait (at doorways), off (no jumping), socializing, basic manners including housetraining and chewing, fetch, and distance commands.  These are structured classes with lesson plans and written homework.  Class is limited to seven puppies, so that each puppy and family get individual attention every week.  Puppy, Intermediate and Advanced Classes are now being held in Pleasant Hill in a very large, covered space (easy to maintain social distancing!) with outdoor air flow and now also at a new outdoor location in the Martinez hills. Social distancing is enforced.

 

Intermediate and Advanced Classes:  I also offer six-week intermediate level courses and also accelerated five-week courses for smaller groups for those who have graduated from the puppy class or who have had private training with me.  These classes emphasize proofing basic commands such as come and stay, so that your dog can be reliable in real-life, distracting situations.  I also teach new skills and, when students are interested, lay foundation work for those who want to get their dogs' CGC (Canine Good Citizen certificate) or start in Rally.  The Advanced Class is open to graduates of the Intermediate class and includes skills such as off-leash heeling and recalls, out-of-sight group stays, and foundation work for AKC Rally and AKC Obedience.
