Each dog is unique and learns a little differently, training must accommodate that. We start with an initial consult, and then from there, we cater our training to meet and exceed your goals while staying within budget. 

happy dog training consult



Cost based on location & behaviors

The first step for any of our training is to set up a consult. Our initial consult generally runs two hours, but may run longer based on number of dogs and/or behaviors. This first meeting is a combination evaluation and first lesson.

We begin by discussing your goals, concerns, and gathering history on your dog(s). We want to make sure all and any questions are answered by educating and your family on dog behavior, development and training. We want you to feel confident about training and see first hand the possibilities you and your dog can have with us. You will watch a professional work with your dog, and then you and your family will be coached through your first lesson where you will see immediate results. Once your pup(s) have been worked, we conclude by assembling the perfect programs that fit you and your dog(s) unique needs.


All of our programs are individually packaged and priced based on what you and your trainer decide is needed and wanted. You will get detailed options to help you choose

next steps for your dog(s) using one or more of the services below.

Private Lessons


Private lessons are one-on-one, hour long sessions with our trainer. What is covered and where the lesson is held is based on you and your dog! Most programs start at home with field trips to local parks and pet friendly stores as you and your dog progress. We have been everywhere from the groomer to a wedding! We go where you and your dog needs us, including but not limited to: the vet, the groomer, a family/friends house, hiking - and the list goes on!
