Private Lessons for Dogs and Puppies

Is your dog shy or fearful when other dogs are around? If so, a classroom full of dogs is not an ideal learning environment.

Do you think your dog will learn better and faster in a “tutoring” situation, with personal one-on-one attention from you and a patient professional dog trainer?


With one-on-one private training sessions, our trainer will give you hands-on lessons in handling and training your dog. Your dog learns all the skills from the group class, but without the distraction of other dogs.  



  • Open to all dogs

  • Proof of rabies and distemper vaccinations or titer required

  • No aggressive dogs are allowed in this class

Class Information:

  • Flexible scheduling available

  • All lessons are held at P.A.W.S.

  • The fee is $60 for one lesson; a set of 3 lessons for $165
