A La Carte Training
A La Carte Training allows you to just pick what training you want. This option is different than our private lesson or board and train programs that are all inclusive. A la carte training is exactly how it sounds: a la carte. Pick the training options that works best for you. Work at your own pace, change the level of support you want and cancel anytime.
A la carte training is flexible and gives you the support you need to be successful with your dog!
All a la carte training begins with our Online Membership. With your Online Membership you can exclusive gain access to group classes, individual private lessons or private lesson memberships and customized board and trains.
Group Classes: We periodically offer group classes. These are offered with our sister organization, New Frontier Service Dogs.
Private Lessons: Meet with us in person or virtually online for one on one training with your puppy or dog. We will be your coach and you’ll be your dog’s trainer. As we work with you and your dog, we’ll customize a training plan to help you be successful!
Private Lessons can be purchased as a membership or individually.
Board & Train: Having your puppy or dog come and stay with us for customized board and train sessions can be a great option. As an owner-trainer you’ll gain great confidence going through group classes and/or private lessons and also know that your dog gets more training experience working with their professional trainer.

“I just wanted to tell you that I took Enzo on a walk today with my daughter in the big stroller, and he did awesome!!!!…One of the best walks I’ve had with a dog, and I just wanted to thank you for for that. You taught us very well!”

Looking forward to training your own service dog but at the same time a bit nervous? This is normal. Owner training a service dog doesn’t mean that you can’t get help from a professional trainer. An experienced professional service dog trainer can help create a training plan that includes raising your puppy, teaching foundational training, public access training, and task training.
You’ve got your new puppy and online membership and are ready to start private lessons! We have two main options:
A) A private lesson membership.
Each lesson is 90 minutes. You’ll also have access to online support through your Online Membership to review material and/or ask questions for assistance in between lessons. You’ll also be able to connect with others doing service dog training their puppies and dogs for a strong community.
Here are out private lesson membership price options.
B) Individual and/or private lesson packages.
You can choose to do private lessons by buying each lesson individually or in a package of four lessons. Four lesson packages expire 12 weeks from the date of purchase.
Board and Train
Having your dog come and stay with us for customized board and train sessions can be a great option. As an owner you’ll gain great confidence going through group classes and/or private lessons and also know that your puppy gets more training experience working with their professional trainer.
This training option does not have to be chosen right away and can be added later based on availability.
Board and trains start at 4 weeks and go from there. We would discuss what you want us to work on while your puppy or dog is with us as well as how long they would stay. Board and train sessions can work an any training skills involved in training your dog. Examples could be: puppy training, crate training, potty training, manners, walking nicely on a leash, training around increased distractions (other dogs, participating in private lessons, taking field trips), improving relaxation skills, recall, obedience, social with other dogs skills, public access, task training and more. Each board and train is customized based on where your dog is in training.
Two private lessons are included. This allows us to go over in person what your puppy learned with us. If you live further away from us, we can combine your lessons into two parts on the day of pick up. It’s important to us that you’re comfortable and confident with training for success when your dog returns home
“Very thorough training experience. Nicole is knowledgable and patient. The ideal combination. My dog is so much easier to live with as a result of this training. I would definitely hire her again!”
