private instruction

Private instruction allows us to match a training curriculum to the unique challenges of your dog and your schedule. Whether you want to turn good into better with obedience work, or you want to address certain behaviors before they escalate, private instruction is a great way to grow.

Weak social skills or stress related to environmental stimulation often plays a big part in problematic behavior. Private instruction at My Dogs Mind allows for strategic socialization using other dogs, adults, children, doors, distractions, and even chickens. Our goal is to safely choose the amount and type of stimulation to identify the problem and then implement exercises to slowly build confidence and positive behavior under real-world scenarios.

The best environment for positive training is one where dog and owner are relaxed and able to focus on working and learning. If at home is best for you or your dog, then that is our classroom. My Dogs Mind is available for off-site training or other learning opportunities including family education or canine interaction for businesses.
