Are you embarrassed when your dog jumps on every guest that walks through the door? Do you wish they would just stay put while you're cooking dinner instead of attempting to steal food off the counters or plates?

How Does It Work?

All package options include:

Intake Session

This one hour long session will allow you and your trainer to come up with a solid behavior plan, make sure you and your family are set up for success in maintaining what your dog is learning, and schedule all your dog's appointments.

Selected number of training sessions

Sessions can occur in the home or be pick up/drop off to work in public spaces - yes, a combination of the two is allowed! We strive to focus on whatever you and your dog's goals are. 

Click here to see individual package details & pricing.

Transfer Sessions

Transfer sessions last 30-45 minutes. They are used to "transfer" the new cues your dog has learned over to you, answer any questions, and adjust any needs or expectations throughout the course of your dog's  selected package.

Harness

Harnesses are considered based on your dog's physical build so we avoid impeding natural movement, decrease risk of injury, and eliminate any issues with neck constraint in brachycephalic dogs (bulldogs, pugs, etc.).

Pick Up/Drop Off Options:

- Anyone over the age of 18 can answer the door to give the dog to the trainer

- You can leave your dog in the yard so our trainers can take and drop them off through a back/side gate.

- The trainer can be notified if there is a spare key or fob hidden in the yard

- You can leave a lock box with a spare key or fob on a door/gate

- If you have keyless entry to your home, you can give the code to your trainer

- If you regularly leave a back or side door unlocked, let your trainer know they can enter there

PLEASE NOTE: trainers will not take fobs, house keys, or gate keys off the property at any point

Requirements:

- Dogs must be at least 8 weeks old

- Dogs must be up to date on rabies vaccines

why choose Day Training?

  • Convenient - you only need to be present for a fraction of the sessions your dog has

  • The trainer does all the hard work and you only need to be present to learn hand signals and verbal cues during the Transfer Sessions

  • The trainer will show you how to use the cues in everyday life, even practicing in public spaces during Transfer Sessions if needed

  • The use of food can be faded out with a highly experienced dog trainer so you don't need to keep track of reinforcement schedules, accidentally build bribes into your dog's behaviors, or worry about becoming dependent on lures.

  • All you have to do is maintain the behaviors your dog learns!

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Golden Retriever Running in a Field with

"My husband and I both work 80+ hours a week, so finding a training program that allowed us to take a back seat without sending Opal away was amazing. Sandra worked in conjunction with our dog walkers to help with leash walking and "come." At home, we saw a huge improvement in her jumping and stealing shoes. The updates along the way and check ins that Sandra provides were low maintenance enough to feel attainable, but incredibly helpful. She's a wealth of information."

"Cass went through Sandra's puppy program when he was a baby, but I didn't do a great job on upkeeping his training. Three years down the road and we definitely needed a refresher! We did the 6 sessions and Cass immediately 'rebounded' into better behavior.  Thanks Sandra!!"

"My 100 lb Presa Canario is pretty well trained in basic commands. But she had a big problem trying to run out the front door and steal food off counters while I was cooking and eating. This trainer came to work with her for a few weeks and within the first week I saw improvement. Lola stays on her bed while I have food out. She no longer runs out the door. This trainer also has recommendations for a lot of dog related stuff."

For safety reasons, we do not take more than 1 dog off your property at a time. This allows us to focus on individual needs of the animal while maintaining personal and public safety standards.

We can/will work with multiple dogs if they do not need to be removed from your property.
