Dog Training

Pupstart offers dog "obedience" training in your home.

There are quotation marks around "obedience" because training your dog is about two-way communication with a different species. Yes, there must be rules and boundaries, and yes, your dog must do as you say. However, this is not to be confused with the actual work of training your dog to respond reliably. That is what Pupstart will teach you how to do. Your children can even participate so that the dog will "listen to" them!


This is a class with your family in your home customized based on your needs. After the initial consult, we'll decide together which skills your dog needs to live with you. Plan on 1.5 - 2 hours and an initial investment of $120.00 to $160.00. You'll have plenty to work on after the first visit!

After that visit, you can decide how you want to proceed with training. If you prefer group training classes, I will refer you to colleagues who also use positive reinforcement training. There is no pressure to buy a package. You can purchase a package of sessions at a discount. Packages start at three sessions for $225.00 and are scheduled to fit your lifestyle. Pupstart provides ongoing support during and after Family Coaching. 


After the Initial Consult, we will schedule appointments on an as-needed basis at $80/hour.


After an initial consult, you decide which skills you'd like your dog to have. Common desired skills are COME, SIT, LIE DOWN, OFF, DOWN/STAY and SIT/STAY WAIT, KENNEL UP, LEAVE IT. Plan on 1.5 - 2 hours and an investment of $120.00 to $160.00 for the initial consult. During a Day Training package, Pupstart privately tutors your dog for you in your home four days per week. Throughout the process, you'll be updated and will learn how to maintain your dog's skills during weekly "knowledge transfer sessions" with your entire family. Each custom Day Training package is planned to make training "stick" as long as you follow through. Day Training is $400 per week with a two-week minimum. Pupstart provides support during and after Day Training.

PAYMENT: Pupstart takes cash, check with photo ID, and credit cards.
