Private lessons

With our Private Lessons, Adam will come right to you and teach you how to train your dog where you are the most comfortable. You will learn how to engage and train your dog as Adam coaches and mentors your into becoming your dog’s personal trainer.

Adam’s lessons are great because each lesson is custom tailored to you. We can meet at your home, a park, or a public place that best suits your needs. And we go at your pace, so no need to worry about committing to a string of pre booked lessons. We will simply set up subsequent lessons when you are ready for them. 

We bring the training to you

During your private lesson, Adam will begin by training your dog right in front of you. This is so he can jump-start the exercise with your dog. Once your dog is on a roll, he will teach you all the steps to the exercise. After each lesson, you will receive a typed out lesson plan to follow and some exercises have tutorial videos too. We find that one of the keys to dog training is repetition. So we recommend you practice with your dog for three to five minutes at a time, three to five times a day.
