If you have a reactive dog (people aggression or dog aggression), a private session with Tammy is REQUIRED prior to joining group classes.  The private session is needed to assess the dog for proper class placement and for the safety of our other students.  PLEASE NOTE: Failure to disclose reactivity prior to class will give us the right to revoke your participation in group classes (with no refund).

If you are interested in private training (one on one training) prior to or instead of group classes, the cost is $100 per hour for regular issues and $150 per hour for any aggression or reactivity issues.
