Private Lessons

Exclusive Dog Training Classes

Private Dog Training Classes


Would you rather have private training for your dog, with one-on-one, individual attention from an expert trainer with over 25 years experience? Maybe you need training classes that can work around your schedule? Or maybe you need to work on a specific behavioral problem that is keeping you from a group class setting?

We cover such issues as running away, digging, barking, nipping, jumping, house soiling, chewing, counter surfing, cat chasing and all basic obedience commands.

Prerequisites & Eligibility

  • Your dog must be current on Bordetella, DHPP (at least one for puppies), Flu, and Rabies at 16 weeks and older, that have been administered by a veterinarian. We recommend pets receive these vaccines at least 2 weeks prior for full immunity, when possible.
  • Unsure if private lessons are right for you? Contact your dog trainer, Jean Gauchat Hargis, for guidance.

Available Dates

Please call or email Jean for availability.
