Foundation Private Lessons

MuttSchool instructors can come to YOU!  Private lessons offer a more personalized way to train your dog or puppy. You and your dog will be working one-on-one with a MuttSchool instructor without the distraction of other dogs or strangers that you might encounter in group classes. Our private lessons use our relationship-based foundation curriculum to build a working bond between you and your dog. We can tailor your lessons to train the basics or do a deep dive into a foundation skill you and your dog are struggling with. Through private lessons you can build a solid training foundation for your dog while scheduling at your convenience and at a location of your choosing—your home, our facility or other agreed on locations.

You can use private lessons to:

  • Start new puppy training
  • Correctly introduce a new adult dog to your household (people and other dogs)
  • Teach the foundation skills to your dog
  • Work on manners you’d like to improve at home
  • Train multiple household dogs
  • Improve children/dog relationships
  • Introduce a new baby to the dog, or work with dogs around toddlers
  • Evaluate your dog’s level of training and add additional skills
  • Include the entire family in your dog’s training so everyone’s training methods are consistent
  • Train your dog for special tasks such as therapy and service dog training
