Private Training (PT) is different from Behavioral Coaching (BC). PT is designed for puppies, adolescents and some newly adopted dogs who need Socialization and Manners (SAM), and dog parents who need guidance with skill building. It is beneficial for people who prefer personalized attention, and can afford PT. PT lasts for 5, 1-hour sessions that includes teaching, hand-outs, Maureen’s book, Awareness Centered Training - ACT - And (1) follow-up (email or phone).   

Behavioral Counseling (BC) is designed for dogs who have ingrained, habitual and/or reactive behavior issues that need resolution / change / modification. It may take 2 -4 sessions or a 1-year or more of commitment. Prevention and management may be part of a continued protocol for safety.

Semi-Private Training (SPT) gives two dog teams (one handler, one dog) an opportunity to share the cost of private training sessions. Children are welcome with supervision. Sessions are for 4 weeks, 1 - hour session.


Private Basic Training (Level 1, 2 or 3) is designed for the person / family who prefer individual, personalized attention. An essential part of any dog's well-being and training is desensitization and socialization to other dogs, sights, sounds and smells. Dog parents are expected to provide this socialization to develop a confident, reliable relationship with their dogs in and out of the class session. PT is costly but can add the benefits of one-on-one learning experiences.   

Private Training offers individualized attention. The learning experience is focused, personal and with fewer distractions than a group class. The same user / dog-friendly Awareness Centered Training is captured in 1-hour sessions at the training sanctuary.  

There is a commitment / agreement required to attend to provide continuity for the puppy- dog's learning experience. Owners are required to practice each week on home work assignments at their own pace. Integrating teaching into daily living becomes easier learning how to effectively use life rewards and awareness, prevention and management, and proactively shaping good behaviors.   


There is no refund for private in-sanctuary or on-site private training after the first session. The guarantee you receive is the expertise of an experienced, certified professional trainer / board certified counselor –  in collaboration with your  Veterinarian  and your commitment to practicing change for you and your dog.

Be mindful that puppies / dogs live in the moment. They are exploring as dogs not humans.

 Reinforce behaviors you want more often than those you do not!
