“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!”

Want to do training in your home?  We can come to you!

We’ll come to your home and get you started on the training process.  In home training can be valuable in a lot of situations including behaviors your dog only does at home but not anywhere else, if your dog is very challenging to take to a training facility or if you prefer to train in the comfort of your own home. 
It can be beneficial for us being in your home as we can better assist with setting up management and training scenarios by seeing where you and your dog live on a day-to-day basis.
What’s Included
1. Initial Training Consultation

In our in-home training, we’ll come out to your house and begin with a transformation training session.  This will include a 2.5-3 hour consult where we’ll talk about what is going with you and your dog(s).  We’ll also discuss about things to work on and do lots of hands-on training teaching you and working with your dog(s).  Afterwards, you’ll receive a customized write up about what we talked about as well as a laid out plan to get you started transforming your dog training problems into solutions!

Follow up lessons are $125 and are typically about an hour long.  Some clients like follow up visits just to thoroughly address all issues (for example, the first 1-3 visits are at your home while another visit may be a walk in the neighborhood or a trip to a local park or somewhere else where behavior problems show up). 

2. Exclusive Client Support Group

After your initial consultation session, you’ll not only have a training plan to get you started but also free access to our Exclusive Client Support Group for three months.  

This group provides support after your initial consult and in between any additional lessons you choose to do. You can ask questions without having to wait until your next lesson.  You’ll also see what others are doing with their dogs, have exclusive first access to workshops and events being held by Freedom Dog Training Academy as well as see dog’s that we are working with in their programs.

You’ll be part of a community with the goal of improving training to have fun with their dogs for many years to come. 

3.Additional Online Resources

In addition to the initial consultation, any follow up private lessons, the Exclusive Client Support Group, you’ll have a third support system in the form of our online courses. You can refer back to lessons for step by step instruction videos and numerous examples of many dogs.

Training Investment

Initial Training Consultation:$295
Follow Up Lessons: $125

When you sign up for a Private Lesson Membership, we’ll be in contact with you to schedule your first lesson as well as send you our veterinary form.  We don’t want your first lesson to be delayed by veterinary records.

We have no vaccination requirements for any virtual or online services where we are not meeting in person.  We do recommend to at a minimum have your dog up to date on rabies when doing training with us in any format.

For in person services at our location: In our on-going effort to provide you and your dog’s with the best care and service possible as well as provide a clean and healthy environment for all, we require ALL dogs that participate in any activity at our Freedom Dog Training Academy location provide proof of the following veterinary records from a licensed veterinarian.

For puppies 8-20 weeks:

a) rabies vaccination no later than 16 weeks of age

b) age appropriate distemper/parvo combo shots

c) negative fecal within 30 days of the first appointment and then updated every six months thereafter

For dogs 21 weeks and older:

a) rabies vaccination (1 or 3 years)

b) distemper/parvo combo (1yr, 3 yrs or a yearly titer)

c) negative fecal within 6 months of the first appointment and then updated every six months thereafter

If your dog tests positive on their fecal, they need to be treated.  After treatment, a new fecal test will be needed to make sure the treatment has worked.  Some parasites require more than one round of treatment to get rid of them.

We don’t require the bordetella vaccine but Client is welcome to have their dog vaccinated with bordetella. Client understands that even if Client’s dog is vaccinated against kennel cough (bordetella) or not vaccinated, there is a chance that the owner’s dog can still contract kennel cough.

We appreciate your willingness to help us keep our facility as clean and safe as possible for the enjoyment of all.

For training at your home we do not require a fecal test.

“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!”
