Private Lessons

The private lesson format is often the most suitable format for training your dog. It is crucial that YOU learn how to handle and interact with your dog in a way that allows you to reach your trianing goals. 

Private lessons are offered at our facility or in your home within our service area. 

Below are the private lesson programs we currently offer:

Evergreen School For Dogs Foundation Program
In this course, we focus on training specific behaviors that are most important to you. We also focus on finding solutions to any problematic behavior you may be experiencing. This course is completely customized for you and your dog. Behavior modification and developing your dog’s skillset are the focus in this course.

Cost: $525 for lessons at facility or $695 for lessons in your home

*Includes 3 private lessons and lifetime access to our online training course

*If you are unsure if this course is the right fit for your dog, you can sign up for an initial behavior consultation.

Evergreen School For Dogs Phase 2 
This course is offered as a follow up to the foundation course if you want to work on advanced training concepts. We strive to get all dogs to progress as fast as possible in the foundation course, but some skillsets may take longer to develop. The first step is to complete the foundation course and then your trainer will help you decide what the best next step will be with your dog.

*This program is fully customized after the client has completed the foundation program 

Fast Track Day Training Program
