Private Training - Services and Rates

Every dog is different.  Every owner is different.  Whether we're working on puppy training, basic dog training, or focusing on  "problem" areas,  every training session is custom tailored to meet you and your dogs individual needs.  
Learn The Basics:  Using only positive reward based training, with a reward marker (clicker and/or voice), a harness or flat-buckle collar, treats, toys and fun, we will teach your dog "good dog" manners, including  how to walk on leash without pulling.  Once you know the basics, I can help you and your dog prepare for the Canine Good Citizen test.  Is your dog therapy material? **We can prepare for that too.  

Private sessions are scheduled Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday.  Closed Monday

Reactive Dog Package - One Consult (up to 2 hrs) and Two - 1 hour Sessions     * $285 (payable at first session)   Does your dog bark, pull on the leash and/or lunge at people or other dogs when you're out on your walks?  The reason can be fear, or excitement, or even frustration because they want to go see the other human or dog.  Together we can work with your dog in calming their reactions and learn to look to you, their wonderful human, for guidance.     

 * Percy's Perpetual Package:    I know that it takes time, patience and work for a newly adopted dog to get to know us and us to know them.  I also know that sometimes we don't quite know how to handle some of the behaviors when they come up.  That is why I offer 10% off the Belle or Doobster package, and 5% off of any additional training sessions up to 1 year after your package. Percy's Perpetual Package is for recently adopted shelter or rescue dogs only.

Create and design your own class with the a 3 or 5 session package.  Grab a couple of friends, decide what you'd like to do and split the cost between you!  (adopted discount does not apply)

Because "certification" for therapy work is always done by the specific program that the owner chooses to participate with, owners need to work directly with a therapy dog program to certify their dog.Small and Tall Dog Training does not provide therapy dog certification.  When you are ready to pursue therapy dog certification you will need to identify a therapy dog program to participate with and contact the program directly.
