The private lesson program consists of six one-hour lessons for a dog with its owner.

Owners are taught the steps to train their dog themselves with the benefit of a private instructor who focuses solely on their specific handling techniques and their dog's learning style. Each week, a new exercise is taught and the previous weeks are reviewed. The exercises are identical to the basic exercises taught in day care training. To achieve optimum results, owners and their dogs are expected to complete all homework assigned by the instructor. This is a wonderful program for people who have the time and inclination to work with their dogs.
