In-Home Dog Training
Need some help, but can't commit to a 6 or 8-week class? Since our dogs are at home with us 99% of the time, shouldn't that be the place where we train them? Dog Face offers in-home training classes for less than the price of most group classes - And you get 100% of the attention from the trainer! We can work on a curriculum that has been put together from years of experience, and incorporate it into your daily lives with your dog. Here's an example: Sure you can teach your dog to stay when you're at class, but what happens when you're at home and the doorbell rings? Wouldn't it be great if the trainer was right there to help you out?
We can put you on the right track. Our training methods use proven, positive-reinforcement techniques to help you communicate with your dog. We’ll help you teach your dog to learn polite and correct behaviors. Whether you want basic manners or serious off-leash control, our dog obedience training program is designed for you and your best buddy.
Private Sessions are scheduled by appointment and cover concerns that are specific to you and your dog. These sessions are for all dog breeds and ages. They include (but certainly are not limited to):
• Puppy or Adult Dog Housetraining
• Polite Greeting Manners

Puppy Boot Camp
Would your dog be perfect if you could just fix a few things? Do you want to get a new puppy, but don’t have the time to do all of the not-so-fun puppy training? Puppy Boot Camp is for busy families that may not have the time or resources to work with their dogs behaviors – And want it done right the first time! Your dog will be boarded and trained in a home environment with real-life distractions (other dogs, cats, kids and even horses!).
- Potty Training
- Crate Training
- Leash walking
- General Manners
- Brand New Puppy Training (sleeping through the night, housetraining, etc.)
$120/day (one to three week stay is recommended, depending on the behaviors that need improvement). This also includes an appointment at your home to transfer all of the training information to you – So you can ensure your puppy will be well-mannered, no matter whose home he’s in! Because this is a private home, we cannot take in aggression cases for Puppy Boot Camp. Click to Enroll
