Private Training & Training Packages
Training personalized for your family
Private in-home training sessions take an adaptive approach to achieving your dog training goals. Whether you’re bringing home a new puppy or struggling with challenges presented by an older dog, this style of training can cater to every family’s specific lifestyle; private sessions allow a trainer to address your dog as an individual. Do you have a lot of questions and are confused with contradicting tips and advice from friends or people on the internet? With private dog training you have one-on-one access to an educated, certified, professional dog trainer.
Private sessions start in your home where most of your dog’s behaviour occurs and where the majority of dogs are the most relaxed and least distracted. Depending on your challenges and training goals, subsequent sessions may be held outside the home where we may go for a walk or visit a neighbourhood park.
COVID-19 Protocols: Please be aware that all Intake Sessions are being held online via Zoom Call and that all in-person appointments are currently being held outdoors.

If your case is determined to be outside of the scope of services offered by Extraordinary Canines, we will work together to find a colleague that can help.
The Extraordinary Canines approach is not just about training your dog. It’s about educating the human part of the family to have the skills and knowledge to work with their dog when a professional isn’t there to help. Click here to read more about the Extraordinary Canines training philosophy.
