Private Lessons

General Dog Training and Behavior Modification

Why should I do Private Lessons?

Private lessons are the perfect option to work on very specific issues you might be having with you dog. During a Private Lesson I am able to give 100% attention to exactly what you need help with. Private Lessons also provide the perfect learning environment for reactive dogs (overly friendly, easily distracted, or easily aroused). Aggressive dogs can benefit from Private Lessons in a safe setting. Being the only dog in the facility will help the dog fee more secure and not be pressured. I find owners are also more relaxed during Private Lessons. Many dogs that have been in private lessons have been able to successfully move into group classes and continued training beyond their initial need.

If you’re a little on the fence about Private Lessons, please e-mail colleen@endlesspaws.net with any questions or concerns! I also offer Evaluations to determine what is best for your dog! 

**Please Note: Due to my schedule, e-mail (colleen@endlesspaws.net) or text message is the best way to get ahold of me. If you would like me to give you a call back please mention it in the e-mail. If you call and I do not answer, please leave a voice mail and I will call you back when I get a chance. Sometimes I do not have great cell phone service and voice mail notifications are delayed in showing up. Feel free to follow up with an e-mail or text message.**
