Private training is specifically designed for you and YOUR dog(s) needs. No two training sessions are ever alike. We use positive reinforcement training techniques combined with systematic desensitization and counter conditioning for best-long lasting behavior modification. Fancy words for changing your dogs feelings from negative to happy feelings, at their own pace. We will interrupt and redirect to an acceptable behavior. Management training system in place until better behaviors are established.

When working with any dog, we need to OBSERVE your dogs behaviors, IDENTIFY the behavior concerns, understand what your dog is COMMUNICATING to you and build a PLAN on how we can create a feeling of RELIEF for your dog. Take the time to prioritize you dog training GOALS. The SMALLER the STEPS, the greater the SUCCESS.

RELIEF doesn’t happen over night. It takes time, commitment, patience and COMPASSION.

Dog behavior training is best compared to a personal training program, a therapy program or a first session doctor’s appointment. It’s a journey and a process, we learn as we go and adjust when needed.

HOW MANY TRAINING SESSIONS WILL IT TAKE? The simple answer, you will notice improvements in your dogs behaviors as quickly as 2 weeks or even sooner. The truthful answer, it takes as long as it takes.

For each training session, you will understand more pieces of the puzzle to your dogs behaviors. The more training sessions you complete, the more knowledge and understanding you gain..

PUPPIES ARE WHAT WE DO WELL. We specialize in puppy training from 8 weeks of age and on. From house training, kennel training, chewing biting mouthing behaviors, counter surfing, nipping, exercise requirements, house set up with kennel and bowls, to socialization and exposure, creating relationships with kids and dogs.

Positive Reinforcement

Use of positive, desirable or pleasurable consequences to teach a behavior. An example is offering a dog a reward, such as a treat or toy for an acceptable behavior. 

Systematic Desensitization

Training plan designed to change a dog’s response to an upsetting scenario by breaking it into small pieces that do not trigger a fear response in the dog. The goal is to teach the dog to tolerate the situation without getting upset or anxious.

Classical Conditioning

Repeated pairings of a neutral stimulus with an unconditioned stimulus generates the unconditioned response, or one which requires no specific training. For example, the smell of food (an unconditioned stimulus) may cause a dog to salivate (the unconditioned response). Over time, the dog may learn to associate the sound of a wrapper or can opener (a neutral stimulus) with the food and may begin to salivate when he hears the noise (the unconditioned response). Eventually, the can opener or wrapper sound becomes a conditioned stimulus, one that elicits a consistent response. 


To turn a dog’s focus away from an unwanted behavior as an intervention to stop the unwanted behavior. From there, the dog can be redirected to an acceptable behavior.


Controlling the environment so that the dog doesn’t have an opportunity to rehearse an unwanted behavior. For example, a management strategy for a puppy who chews on furniture is to keep him in a gated, dog-proofed area away from furniture.

We will educate you on the reasons why dogs do what they do, and what we can do to decrease the strength of the behavior in conjunction with how often the behavior occurs, until the behavior is extinct and has been replaced with another more suited and acceptable behavior.


Ending a behavior by removing reinforcement. For example, a dog barks to get his person’s attention; if the person ignores the dog while he is barking, removing the reward of attention, that behavior ceases to be rewarding and the dog will stop barking. Extinction does not require punishment; instead, it relies on removing reinforcement of unwanted behavior. 

Behavior Questionnaire

Each client is required to fill out TLC's behavior questionnaire, better understanding of the dog's routine and home environment, sleeping and eating habits, behavior problems or training questions.

What to Expect

On your first private training session, your dog's behaviors are being observed as soon as the car is parked and your trainer starts their walk to the house. Is the dog barking at the window? How does the dog behave when a stranger enters the home? Is the dog showing signs of being happy or unsure?

We start training as soon as your trainer enters the home, starting with obervation training. Let's talk about what your dog is communicating to us. Is your dog showing signs of fear, anxiety or stress? Is your dog relaxed to see a new person enter the home? What is your dogs tail communicating to us?

Together, we will sit and talk about what we can do to make things easier for everyone. We go over the questions in your behavior questionnaire together, and discuss what is the best plan for your dog to create a feeling or relief, living a fulfilled life with their family.

Foundation Work

When starting a behavior modification program or any training program, we will assess and work with your dog on their foundation work such as impulse control self-control exercises, eye contact and connection work, 100% resource control in the house. We will work together on relationship building, understanding your dogs breed and breed traits, genetic dispositions and how we can work with your dog.

We discuss canine communication such as stress signals, calming signals and displacement behaviors. Basic training and cued commands such as sit, down, stay/wait, drop it and leave it.

Behavior Modification

We discuss and education of a wide variety of behaviors from your questionnaire, and discuss the different option on how to resolve the problems together. Every dog is different, just like every person is different. Each dog breed has a genetic-make up, each dog will think, process and learn differently from other dogs.

What the owner sees with their eyes and hears with their ears is not quite the problem at hand we really need to modify. Excessive barking, chewing on the leash during walks, getting into everything - are all the symptoms of the problem. We need to dig deeper and figure out the root of the problem and address that. The excessive barking might be caused by fear and anxiety, the chewing on the leash might be caused by stress, getting into everything could be a sign of boredom and not enough mental stimulation.

With a combined effort from the owners, to the dog and the trainer - education and training will lead us to a win-win-win training and behavior modification program.

Need a dog for distraction training or creating positive associations during your behavior modification program? We got one who is happy to help! There might even be a new puppy on the way, excellent for the imprint training program for young puppies!

Keep your training positive. Keep your relationship with your dog intact. Learn and grow together. Take the time to understand each other.

There are many different options to suite a wide variety of needs. Take a ready below for your options and packages.
