Day Training is where your trainer comes to your home to work with your dog one-on-one usually 3 days a week. At the end of each week, we have a session together to go over what your dog has been learning. You will also receive photos, videos, and training handouts so you can practice between sessions. Day Training is perfect for busy households or folks who work full-time! Day Training is NOT suitable for severe problem behaviors.
