First session will be a private 1 hour session ($70) to assess your dog’s reactivity and provide you with the techniques for proper handling. Each dog is different and should be treat as such. From there we will discuss setting up additional sessions to work on introduction with dogs and/or people. Some dogs will only required one, 1 hour session and from there can do introduction sessions lasting 20 mins ($20/session). These introduction sessions will allow us to see that you and your dog are on the right track and provide a safe environment to practice the techniques established in the first class.
