Sharp Dogs–Offering services that meet your individual needs

 You and Your Dog—Private Training

Sharp Dogs’ private training allows you and your dog to be coached and trained together. The training can cover basic skills as well as target specific issues that you are having with your dog. Most often private training sessions take place in your home. This is a great way to get individual attention on specific goals & provide you with the know-how to be successful.

Initial Consultations

In our first meeting, the Initial Consultation, we talk about your dog’s current behaviors and skills, your goals for your dog’s behavior, and we discuss a training plan that addresses your goals.

The consultation can address issues with newly adopted puppies or dogs. Once your dog has settled in, you may see the need for training or addressing behavior issues.

The number of recommended training sessions depend on variables, such as your dog’s current level of training, time put into training, and the seriousness of their behavior problems.

Let’s get started!

Pre-Adoption—Puppy or Dog Primer Consultation

This Primer is a 2-hour in-home consult providing you with information to make the transition easiest for both you and the dog.

A great head start to a lifetime friendship with your new puppy or dog!

Urban Dog Training Program—Apartment/Condo Living

The Urban Dog Training Program  is a 10-session, 3-4 week program geared towards urban dwellers living in city apartment or condo buildings. It addresses training skills particularly useful in maintaining good relations with the management and neighbors, and other considerations for easy daily living, such as:

  • Leaving home—Staying next to you while you exit your home & lock your door
  • Elevator manners—from waiting for its arrival to traveling on and calmly getting off
  • Lobby and hallway manners
  • Polite interactions with people
  • Walking nicely on leash
  • Necessary skills such as coming when called, paying attention to you, waiting to cross streets, & others

After the Initial Consultation, the 10 sessions are broken up as follows:

#1-3: You, your dog, & the trainer— #4-7: The trainer & your dog—#8 -10: You, your dog & the trainer

Urban living has never been easier!
