Private Training is Fast & Effective

Successful dog training depends on attention.  If a dog is distracted from his owner while training, his progress is slow.    

Group obedience classes are OK for getting some of the basics down, but for real training, that meets your needs and your pet's needs, one-on-one training is needed.  Not all dogs do well in group sessions, much less get through them without feeling anxious or over stimulated by the fun new people, dogs and smells around.  Your pet may not do well in group class if he is too distracted in groups and unable to focus, is aggressive toward other dogs and/or people, has a shy owner who is not comfortable asking questions or requesting help in a group setting
❏    Do you wish your dog was a happy, relaxed and well-behaved companion, just the way you’ve always wanted him to be?

We can change your Problem Pooch into a Proper Pup!
Pet Etiquette gives you the fastest, most effective solutions to your dog training needs.  And that is in-home dog training.  Your home offers a comfortable, distraction free setting.  Most dogs, and many owners, focus better and learn more quickly than in a classroom setting.

Whether you're wrangling a new puppy, an unruly adolescent, or learning that you can teach an old dog new tricks, our affordable, private dog training programs are for you. Classes are OK for getting some of the basics down, but for real training that meets your needs and your dog’s needs, one-on-one time is needed. And that’s what Pet Etiquette offers.

Most behavior problems begin in the home, and that's the best place to solve them.   
The training takes place in your home, or a location of your choosing, such as the park or on walks around your neighborhood. Starting in a familiar, low-distraction environment makes it easier for you and your dog to acquire the skills in the beginning, and makes it easier to take it out "on the road" later on!

Every dog is different
We assess the cause of the problem and give you practical, clear-cut solutions which bring about positive change.  There is no "one size fits all" in behavior modification and problem solving, so we work with each dog and owner individually and personalize a program to accomplish your goals, and we work with you every step of the way.

We'll talk with you about your schedule, you family composition, your goals and objectives, and then come up with a plan to meet your needs.  Since we're working with you one on one,  we work on the problems that matter most to you.

Truly flexible scheduling

We understand, life sometimes gets in the way of even our best intentions. Scheduling is truly flexible--we don't need to meet on the same day of the week or hour of the day each time.  If you have vacation or business commitments, we can skip a week.  Not feeling well?  Call us and we'll reschedule! 

100% instructor attention 
Since you are the only student, you have our undivided attention, which means all class time is devoted to fine tuning your skills to ensure you get the best results.
