Private Coaching

Private coaching:

All coaching sessions are one on one, and take place in your home, your neighborhood, or your nearby park. Private coaching is ideal for the client who wants to be directly involved in their dogs learning process. After every session, you will be given homework and training games to practice what you’ve learned. Goals are set for each meeting, and progress is assessed at the start of the following appointment. 

Some concerns can be addressed within one or two training sessions.  Usually, clients with behavioral issues, multiple goals, or those with new puppies will require more.  Pricing on discounted packages can be found below. 

A portion of 10-session packages can be conducted without the owner present.  We recommend the owner participates in every third lesson to review what the dog is working on, and to ensure these skills are being practiced consistently by all family members.  Progress is highly correlated with the owner/household’s ability to follow through on the recommendations.

I learned more about animal behavior working alongside Justis 2-4 times a week than I did working full time at a veterinary medicine clinic for over a year.

I have seen her coax dogs of all ages out of their shells time and again, setting them up for success with amazing training drills and boosting their self-confidence so that they walk with heads high, an easy stride, & tails at a lazy wag as they traverse the streets of Manhattan.
