Private Training

From first puppy to senior companion, learning opportunities never end. Private Training sessions are tailored to meet the specific needs and goals you have with your dog. At your scheduled convenience, you will have Leea’s undivided attention and support as a certified professional dog trainer to help you:

  • Learn how to be a confident, caring handler for your dog
  • Effectively train new good manners or strengthen existing skills so you and your dog are a strong and happy team
  • Problem solve common behavior issues that surface at different ages
  • Explore new ways to connect with your dog, like Agility or Tricks and Games training

Your first session will include an initial consultation so we can get to know each other and assess the training needs. All techniques used in training are positive-based approaches to learning that foster a strong partnership between you and your dog in order to support lasting change. Each program is individually designed to support you in attaining the results you want, and requires your full participation for successful results.
