Puppy Prep $50 - One Hour Visit
Overwhelmed by everything on the internet or by all the advice swirling around adding a new puppy to your family? I provide an hour meeting in your home to help prepare you for a new puppy. From recommended books and websites, to finding the right puppy class, to preparing your home for a new puppy. We will review a couple of training games to play with your new puppy so you start off on the right paw!
Basic Dog Training $75 - One Hour Session
Private training done in your home. It is my goal to help bridge the gap in communication between dogs and their humans. I use gentle methods teaching people how their dogs learn and perceive the world, while teaching dogs how to live in a human home, while still being a dog! Basic training, using positive reinforcement, includes teaching basic manners such as a "wait" cue to "down", greetings without jumping and recall, to name a few. Follow up email and phone support included in the hourly rate. Basic dog training is not for behavior concerns such as fear aggression, resource guarding or separation anxiety.
Phone Consultation $60 - 45 Minute Session
Interested in private training, but uncertain about booking an in person training session? I provide a 45 minute phone consult to discuss your questions and concerns regarding your dog. During this session, I will give you ideas on how to make changes to the environment, feedback on training options that I can provide, and ways to improve your dog's day.
Dog Hikes (45 minutes)
$40 - No additional charge for second dog in the same household
Our dogs need so much more than a quick loop around the neighborhood. Our 45 minute walks allow dogs to stop and sniff, take in the day, and stretch their legs. I let the dogs lead the way with their noses and I'm happy to tag along. Whether we are enjoying freshly fallen snow or the first sign of spring, I am grateful to take in the day with your dog by my side.
"It is a happy talent to know how to play"
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Please note: The Woodland Wag respectfully will not use the following equipment for dog walks, play sessions or training: choke collars, prong collars, or electric shock collars. I strongly suggest properly fitted, no pull harnesses for dogs who pull on leash. For dogs with electric fences, I need exact boundaries of yard in order to always avoid any interaction of your dog and the fence.
