Most people want basic manners from their dogs: reliably come when called, stop barking when asked,  walk nicely on the leash, or greet visitors politely to name a few.  General obedience training—such as the sit, lay down and stay commands—are the building blocks that we train all dogs to know. Knowing the basics is  paramount to fixing those annoying behavior problems.   

You may not always know what triggers unwanted behavior from your dog, but with the training protocols used by Every Great Dog, you will have the tools to help your dog be responsive and obedient wherever you go. 

Many people come to us frustrated with their dog  but leave our training program with a great dog who understands their requests and does them on cue reliably. Whether you have a specific issue you want addressed or just want your dog to learn and master the basics Every Great Dog's private training can help.  

"Not only did Rachel train our dog, but she also helped teach us how to work with him on our own to ensure consistently good behavior. We are so glad we decided to pursue training with Every Great Dog, it was worth every penny!"

Is Private Dog Training right for me? 

Private dog training is recommended for owners who prefer the convenience of having their dog trained at their own home, where the problems usually start. As part of your initial phone consultation, we will help you choose the program that’s right for you based on your goals and your dog’s behavior.

"We have seen a drastic improvement in our dogs leash walking, so much so that I can actually walk him AND push a stroller - something that was an impossible task before we started this training with Every Great Dog."
