Don’t get lost in a crowd!
With San Diego private dog training, you’ll work one-on-one with Lynn Webb, a certified trainer, to address your dog’s specific needs and challenges. Sessions are always positive, relaxed and fun, so your dog stays calmer and more focused. And that often means you’ll see progress sooner than you would in a group class. It’s great for the human, too, because there’s no stress and no pressure to go at a certain pace. You’ll be able to ask questions, express frustrations, and celebrate success without the fear of being judged or holding up the rest of the class.
PRIVATE DOG TRAINING IS PERFECT FOR THOSE WHO HAVE A NEW PUPPY OR HAVE A DOG WHO:
Fears people, dogs, or unfamiliar situations
Barks, lunges or pulls while on walks
Chews or destroys things
Doesn’t come when called
Whines for attention or barks at the door
Jumps on people

At the end of the consultation, you’ll receive recommendations for the training package(s) that’s most beneficial for your situation.
What you’ll receive:
Discussion of the problem you’d like to change
Clarity on your ideal outcome or goal
Recommendations for a training and/or management plan
A clicker, along with a beginning lesson in clicker training
One short training session
House training set-up or fixes (if necessary)
PRIVATE PUPPY TRAINING
Group classes introduce your puppy to other puppies; but private training gives her a head-start and sets her up for success before she ever sets paw in class. Training takes place in the convenience of your own home, and you’ll both receive personalized instruction and attention for the most common puppy problems, behaviors and skills.
Note: A Private Consultation is required to enroll in puppy training. See above.

The great thing about living in San Diego is that we get to hike with our dogs year-round. But with warmer Spring and Summer temperatures comes increased snake activity, which means more opportunity for our dogs to be able to interact with snakes. Rattlesnake Avoidance Training will teach your dog how to respond to visual and auditory cues to avoid encounters with snakes.
How does it work? Throughout the five sessions, your dog will learn behaviors that will keep him safe when threatened. Understanding when to come when called, how to avoid a snake, and where to go when a snake is near will increase the likelihood that you and your dog will be able to avoid a dangerous interaction with a rattlesnake.
Training also includes tips on management and learning what makes snakes dangerous. Successful rattlesnake avoidance training relies upon on-leash engagement or close supervision of your dog. No live snakes are used in training.
“Lynn is a kind, dedicated and patient trainer. Best of all, Marly has fun with her and is always excited to see her!”
