Private, In-Home Dog Training

We offer private in-home classes in the following Northern Virginia locations: Alexandria, Annandale, Arlington, Burke, Falls Church, Ft. Belvoir, Lorton, Springfield. Private sessions are customized to your needs and can cover a variety of issues such as:

 

  • Basic Obedience: Sit, stay, down, come, focus, touch, leash walking, and more

  • Problem Behaviors: Jumping, house training, nipping, chewing, lunging, leash aggression, resource guarding

  • If your dog has aggression toward humans or dogs, please contact me prior to booking a session.

 

The initial session is 1.5-2 hours long and includes a consultation. Each addition session is 1 hour. We’ve found that some dogs only need one session, while others may need more. Because of this, we offer pay-as-you-go sessions. There’s no need to pay for more than what you and your dog need. The fees are based on our time, not the number of dogs we're training in your home. 

 

Initial Session 1.5-2 hours: $100

Follow-up Session 1-1.5 hours: $80
