1:1 In-Person Training

1:1 Dog Training

IMPORTANT NOTE

In order to optimize the results of training, all Initial Consultations are done online. Most programs  then continue with online one-on-one sessions.  In-person training is available after the Initial Consultation on a case-by-case basis, for clients within our in-person service area only. Click here to learn why virtual training is a great option for a wide variety of clients.

Initial Consultation:

All In-Person Training programs start with an online Initial Consultation. This 75 to 90 minute training session gives us a chance to get to know you and your pet(s) and learn more about your goals. The Initial Consultation, which is $349,* tends to be a little more talk and a little less action than other training sessions, since we need to make sure we understand your needs, but rest assured actual training will happen too! After the Initial Consultation, you will receive a report on what we discussed, as well as specific notes on how to get started training your dog or other pet.

*NOTE: All prices listed on this page reflect in-person pricing for clients in The Sophisticated Dog's core service area.  A surcharge applies for in-person sessions for clients in The Sophisticated Dog's extended service area.  Clients outside The Sophisticated Dog's service area will only be offered online services.

In 1:1 In-Person Training programs, I or Paul come to your home or meet you in a location within our core service area and work hands-on with you and your dog (or other pet) to help you achieve your training goals. Do you need to see how a particular technique works with YOUR dog, or need help jump-starting a behavior you're having trouble with? In-Person training sessions can help with that.

In-Person follow-up training sessions (after the Initial Consultation) are $199 per session with Irith.  Follow-up sessions with Paul are $179 per session when sessions are purchased individually. You can also pre-purchase a package of five follow-up sessions with Paul for $791 (a savings of over $100), or a package of ten follow-up sessions with Paul for $1349 (a savings of nearly $450).

*NOTE: Follow-up sessions last between about 45 and 55 minutes. In-person training is offered on weekdays in a limited geographic area only. All prices listed on this page reflect in-person pricing for clients in The Sophisticated Dog's core service area. Clients outside The Sophisticated Dog's service area will only be offered online services.

Initial Consultation:

All Day Training programs start with an Initial Consultation. This 75 to 90 minute training session gives us a chance to meet you and your pet(s) and learn more about your goals. The Initial Consultation, which is $349 with Irith or $315 with Paul, tends to be a little more talk and a little less action than other training sessions, since we need to make sure I understand your needs, but rest assured actual training will happen too! After the Initial Consultation, you will receive a report on what we discussed, as well as specific notes on how to get started training your dog or other pet.

Are you too busy to devote time to formal training?

If you are in Paul's core service area, he can help out by coming in and training your dog (or other pet) directly anywhere from two to five days a week. Then, after anywhere from two to five Day Training sessions, he does a special training session called an Owner Transfer Session where he shows you all the new skills your pet has learned.

IMPORTANT: While Paul can do a lot of the heavy lifting for you while training your dog (or other pet) directly, he doesn’t live with your pet. For Day Training to be successful, you must commit to following the training instructions we give you at the Initial Consultation and Owner Transfer sessions. He will make that as easy as possible for you, of course. Please note that Day Training may not be the right fit for certain training goals, though.

Day Training and Owner Transfer sessions after the Initial Consultation are $179 per session when sessions are purchased individually, $791 for a pre-purchased package of five follow-up sessions (a savings of over $100), and $1349 for a pre-purchased package of ten follow-up sessions (a savings of nearly $450).

NOTE: Day Training sessions last between about 45 and 55 minutes. Sessions are offered on weekdays in a limited geographic area only.
