Private Dog Training Lessons

Our private dog training lessons are designed to “Train You How to Train YOUR Dog!” You cannot get the results that our clients get if you are idle in your dog’s training and just as important your dog’s maintenance which is forever!

A good client should possess:
1) TIME
2) Desire to train their dog
3) Ambition
4) An understanding that we are there to help you train your dog
5) Comprehend that everyone goes through obedience training, but fewer maintain the training
6) Success is up to the dog trainer and dog owner
7) Trust for their dog trainer and a willingness to take direction


Our private dog training lessons are ideal for the pet dog owner that wants and has the time to dedicate to learning how to train their own dog. This differs from our 4 week dog board and train program where Dedicated Dog Training trains your dog and then offers FREE private dog training lessons to teach you how to “MAINTAIN” your dog’s obedience training system.


How many private dog training lessons does it take?

Unlike many other dog training schools, Dedicated Dog Training realizes the number of private dog training lessons will vary from dog to dog as well as client to client.

Here are a few questions that will determine the approximate number of private dog training lessons you may require:

1) What type of obedience training are you seeking?
2) How old is your dog?
3) What is your dog’s temperament?
4) Is there dog aggression involved? If so, what type of aggression?
5) How are your handling skills (how well or coordinated are you)?
6) Are you able to be consistent?
7) Can you and are you willing to follow directions?

These are some of the questions that will help decide how many private lessons to begin with.
