Whether it's in your home or in a group setting, I will teach you how to communicate with your dog to reach your individual goals.
Private Training: At Home or at Donna's Facility
We begin each behavior case with a phone call or Zoom conversation to gain an understating of the situation through a series of questions and a brief history.
A 60 minute visit at your home with your dog and the family. Due to Covid 19, home visits are done outdoors or in a well ventilated area such as a screened in porch or garage with the door open. During this visit we conduct a behavioral evaluation, take a history and talk about your goals. By the end of the meeting, we will create a program best suited to your lifestyle. Training will be conducting at your home and at Donna's in Norwell.
