Do you and your dog need private dog training lessons to correct a specific behavior problem? 

Do you need a custom private dog training package?

Does your dog bark and lunge at other dogs on walks?

Are you seeing bad habits developing?

Does your dog have fears that are limiting his abilities (and yours) to enjoy life? 

Are you experiencing other behavior problems?

If so, then you may be wondering about dog training vs. behavior consultation. Our private dog training packages are both. We approach all our training plans from a behavior science point of view. Therefore, we will help you solve your training and behavior problems. We are committed to achieving your goals.

Your private dog training package will help you achieve your goals.

We combine virtual and live meet-ups so your private dog training package is customized to achieve your goals. How? First, when live sessions are needed, we can meet with you at your home or at our training facility. Second, virtual sessions are best for many training needs. They allow us to meet with you no matter what your geographic area; we will work with you to determine what will be best for you and your dog. Third, we will use science-based positive reinforcement training to make your life with your dog more peaceful and predictable.

What’s included?

The number of sessions, amount of time, and specific behaviors you’ll need to achieve your goals will be specified in your custom private dog training quote. Handouts, videos, and other helpful resources will be yours to keep after your package is complete. The initial consultation is usually 90 minutes. Follow-up training sessions are usually 30 to 45 minutes each. Packages usually include 5 – 12 sessions. We work hard to use your time and money for the greatest benefit for you and your dog. For example, we may recommend our Basic Manners Class as part of a training package, to get you and your dog started on the right paw.

We will be with you every step of the way!

We provide extensive support during the course of your private dog training package and we are committed to your goals. Therefore, part of our teaching will be helping you be accountable for your daily assigned training with your dog. For instance, we’ll ask you to submit short training videos for review. We’ll carry out regularly scheduled communication via email, online meeting or phone.

Private Dog Training Packages: Separation Anxiety

A Private Dog Training Package may be needed to address true separation anxiety or related but less-severe separation distress. Your dog can feel secure and comfortable when home alone.

Separation Anxiety and related behavior problems may take a year or more to turn around. We begin with a consultation to establish what your dog’s specific problems are. You’ll receive carefully constructed daily training sessions for you to put in action. We work on 4-week contracts, renewable each month as we progress. The high level of support we offer and daily lessons tailored to your dog’s needs will get you the fastest results possible. This training takes time; however, our education and experience will decrease the time required to as short a period as possible. The Mannerly Dog’s Separation Anxiety Training Package including daily assignments and full access to trainer support 5 days every week for 4 weeks: $1200
