Due to current recommendations to slow the spread of COVID-19, in person consultations will not be offered at this time. Continuing support is still available via remote consultations and online training, and in person follow up training will be allowed on a case by case basis. Check back for additional resources coming soon, to help during this difficult time. Stay safe and keep training!

New Client Consult     |     $110

A consultation is required for all new clients. This allows me to record a detailed history of the problem, observe the dog’s current environment, discuss training principles and why your dog is behaving the way they are, then explain what a training plan for your dog’s specific problem will look like. While there will be hands on demonstration, the main focus of a consult is information gathering and education. During our session you will get physical handouts with body language, behavior and training information; after it, you will receive a document with notes and plans specific to your situation.  


Sometimes getting accurate info about dog behavior and training is all that is needed to make a huge difference in daily life or to start training at your own pace. Sometimes people want a little - or a lot of - help along the way. While training is always a lifelong process, we’ll talk about your specific goals and how much estimated time or how many training sessions will be needed to accomplish them.


**Please have printed vaccination records ready or send them electronically before our session.

To get started, send me an email with your training goals: nickala@carefreecanine.org

Private Training

Private training sessions are in your home or in problem locations during follow up sessions. This is a requirement for most fear and aggression cases, a great option for new adoption transitions and a go-to for household manners. You will be an integral part of training and I will help coach you through your dog’s training plan one step at a time.

Day Training

Not everyone has the time or interest in training to devote hours of work to a problem behavior. That’s okay! Day training is an effective option to give your dog a strong foundation, requiring much less mechanical training proficiency from you and only maintenance work or polishing after our sessions are complete. This may be done in your home while you’re at work, on field trips to problem locations (i.e. a walking path with dogs that cause yours to react) or locations that provide more opportunities for practice (i.e. jumping to greet strangers).


Both types of training sessions can be utilized in a single package. Sessions unused within one year of purchase will be donated to a local dog in need.
