The Latchkey Lassie Program

If your busy schedule prevents you from spending the time training your dog, this program is designed for you. It’s a great way to get a puppy off to a solid start or help a dog with small behavior issues such as jumping or pulling on a leash. The first and last session will involve you, your dog, and the trainer. The ten sessions in between will be your dog and the trainer! Together we will design a program to fit what your dog needs to learn. $750
