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.

I am offering real time sessions online via Zoom and outdoor sessions only. I recommend all starter sessions begin online. You'll get the same training expertise and assistance, only you stay in the safety and comfort of your own home.

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.

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!

**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.
