Private Lessons

Private lessons offer a personalized way to train your dog or puppy. Enjoy the flexibility of working one-on-one with a MuttSchool instructor based on your schedule and availability. These lessons can be held at your home, our training center or another agreed upon location.

How do you get started? Sign up today for an evaluation!


During your dog’s evaluation, a MuttSchool instructor will meet with you and your dog to observe your dog’s behavior first hand. Together we will devise a training plan that meets your dog’s training needs.

Foundation private lessons

Build a solid foundation for your dog while training on your own schedule. Work on your dog’s manners while including the entire family in your training sessions.

Behavior modification private lessons

Is your dog’s challenging behavior upsetting the balance in your household?
Behavior private lessons are for dogs that are exhibiting behaviors that are difficult to live with.

Rowdy Rover behavior program

MuttSchool’s Rowdy Rover program is a multifaceted behavior program for dogs with separation anxiety, fear, aggression, reactivity, or obsessive-compulsive behaviors.

Day Training

Let our professionals train your dog for you!

No time to train your dog? Let MuttSchool take the stress out of training by letting us train your dog while you are busy during the day. Allow MuttSchool’s instructors to give you the peace of mind that your dog is getting the right foundation training, manners and socialization while you go about your daily life. MuttSchool offers several different options for people who want a professionally trained dog:

Day Training

With our day training program, you drop your dog off in the morning and pick your dog up in the evening. In between, Muttschool instructors follow your dog’s individualized training plan and do all the work!

Manners Camp

MuttSchool’s Manners Camp is a structured all day activity for dogs that need a little help remembering their manners. Drop your dog off with us for fun and first grade level training while you go about your day.

Boarding School

This is a very popular option if you want your dog professionally trained but can’t bring your dog to day training.

Field Trips

Does your dog need work outside your house? Are walks difficult because your dog is too distracted? Let our trainers take your dog on field trips while you are at work to reinforce good leash behaviors around distractions.
