Puppy Class - $195 for 1 private lesson and 6 group sessions The class includes a one hour private orientation lesson, 6 group classes, a dog training book and a clicker. This is an ongoing class for puppies 9 weeks-5 months. People will be learning to teach their puppies basic obedience behaviors such as sit, down, stand, come, stay, walking on a loose leash and leave it. Puppies will have a chance to play and socialize off leash during the class. In order to transition new people into the class, I provide a one hour orientation lesson at your home before you begin group classes with your puppy. You will have 10 weeks to complete 6 group classes. The puppy class meets from 10-11 on Sunday mornings in Goleta. All puppies need to have started their vaccinations. Call Andrea at 708-1418 to schedule an orientation.

For people with busy schedules or dogs who need individual attention.
Private Training $80 per hour or $350 for 5 hours of training I offer private training at your home or another location that you choose. Private training is a good option for people with busy schedules, for dogs who are fearful or reactive to other dogs and people or dogs that aren't yet able to handle the distractions of a group training class. Some behavior problems occur mainly in the home and it makes sense to train your dog when and where the problems occur. I can work with you to create a custom training plan that meets your specific goals. To schedule private training, contact Andrea at 708-1418 or email@example.com
Day Training This is a good option for people with busy schedules that might not always have the time or patience to train their dog. I can come by your house and train your dog for you, or if you prefer, I can pick up your dog for an outing to train and socialize. We can work together to create a training plan that will achieve your specific goals. I can video tape your dog's training sessions for you to review. I will provide transfer sessions with you and your dog so that you will be able to continue practicing the behaviors your dog has learned.
