Private Lessons with Prescott K9 Academy are an intensive series of 1 hour sessions designed specifically for you and your dog.
After your evaluation, we develop a written Training Plan to address your needs and your dog’s potential.
During Private Lessons, we develop your training skills and make progress toward your training goals. In between your lessons with us, you’ll continue to train your dog in shorter sessions 2 to 4 times per day on your own based on your ‘homework’ assignments.
Scheduling is based on meeting your training goals. So, rather than schedule for our convenience at a regular day and time each week, the timing of your next lesson will depend on meeting a particular criteria — ‘wait’ at doorways with good eye contact and a loose leash, for example.
We aim to coach you through a concentrated few weeks to reach a place of resolution with your dog — modeling as closely as possible how we would train your dog if he was with us in our home.
“Oh, my gosh! This morning’s session was great, the best he’s ever done!”
“Deb and Mike, I just had to tell you about our walk tonight. We had a breakthrough.
Deb, you were so right, I talk too much. The only words I used tonight were Down and Let’s go.
She finally got the message to walk with me not in front of me and when I stopped, she stopped.
A small tug up on her leash and she sat. We still don’t have Down very well,
I’m still having to use the leash, but in her defense we haven’t practiced as much as we should.
But tonight just felt different, like we were more in sync.
Can’t wait to see you Friday. Thanks for everything.”
