Private Dog Training Services

Initial Consultation and Assessment:

Woof woof, dear dog parent! 🐾

I know that when it comes to your precious pooch, nothing but the best will do. That’s why I’m thrilled to offer a complimentary consultation and assessment when you book any dog training program. I will credit the consultation fee towards your final cost, because I am pawsitively committed to providing value to all of my amazing clients.

During the consultation, I’ll carefully listen to your concerns and dig deep to understand your pup’s personality, behavior, and goals. This isn’t just a technical assessment – it’s a chance to connect on a deeper level and establish a bond that will make training even more effective and enriching.

I will roll up her sleeves and craft a tailor-made program that suits your pup’s unique needs, bringing out their inner genius and helping them become the best version of themselves. I believe in a kinder, gentler approach to training that’s rooted in compassion and empathy. So let’s embark on this adventure together, with our cup of tea in paw and tails wagging high. 🐶✨

  • 1.15 hours consultation is usually done in person but can be done online meeting via zoom upon request at no additional charge. Find out in faq why Zoom is a good way to do initial consultations and assessments.
  • So that I can assess where your dog is on their journey and how I can help you with private dog training services.
  • Then we will be able to identify the next steps for the most effective private dog training program.
  • You will be credited the fee of the consultation when you book ANY dog training program.

*** Presently this consultation is mandatory before buying or creating any dog training service programs for you. ***

Choose the right private dog training service for your needs

With Allison’s Animal Academy dog training services, I understand that your furry friend is more than just a pet – they’re a beloved member of your family. That’s why I follow positive reinforcement force-free training methods that prioritize your pet’s comfort and well-being.

I have two options available to suit your needs – coaching you to train your pet or doing the training for you with my Doggie Home School program. My coaching program involves working closely with you and your pet over a certain number of weeks, ensuring that you feel supported and empowered throughout the process. Alternatively, my Doggie Home School program means that I take care of the training for you, giving you peace of mind that your furry friend is in safe hands.

I understand that every pet is unique, which is why both of my training options are completely personalized to suit your pet’s individual needs. Whether you’re dealing with puppy training, anxiety issues, or leash training, I’m here to help.

So if you’re looking for a compassionate and empathetic approach to dog training, look no further than the Allison’s Animal Academy training services. Let’s work together to achieve the best possible outcome for your furry friend!

Doggie Home School

This is for you if:

You are not only short on time but also want your precious dog to learn with certified positive reinforcement dog trainer.

Also, you want convenience, ease, efficiency and results for your dog training experience.

Finally, peace of mind knowing that your dog will be trained in a fun and equally supportive environment.

In this case, I come to you so your dog can be trained in the comfort of your home.

"The homeschool option is great. You are the only one I found that provides this service. I think you training in an environment Nushey was used to helped him a great deal. The transfer session for me was extremely helpful as well. Group classes did not allow for a good environment for Nushey. The environment stressed him out. I think the board and train he did early on may have also added to his stressors as well."
