Our private lesson program is an intensive obedience training that aims to make you an expert dog handler. With the help of a dedicated trainer, you and your dog learn basic commands while getting rid of unwanted behaviors like jumping, leash-pulling, and running through open doors. During this six-week program, you’ll meet weekly with your trainer and work with directly with your dog in between lessons to help them build muscle memory via homework assignments and reinforce new skills directly in your home environment.
We recommend this program for any dog that has not had prior obedience training. This class covers a range of basic commands while also removing unwanted behaviors. If you’re not sure which program is right for you, our behavioral assessment is a great place to start. Using information about your dog’s typical behavior and your training goals, our trainers recommend the program that’s right for you.
In our private lesson program, your dog will learn the following skills and commands both on and off-leash.

How it Works
The Canine Academy Positive E Collar training method is broken down into 3 phases:
Phase 1: Grab Your Leash and Collar
Your dedicated trainer will teach you and your dog the basics of basic obedience through a series of six private lessons. This will include an introduction to our remote e-collars, followed by an intensive weekly focus on a set of commands. Between each lesson, you'll have a homework assignment to complete which solidifies the dog's understanding of each command and builds a deep bond between owner and pet!
Phase 2: Seek Out Challenge
Your final lesson focuses on how to put the commands all together to guide your dog through any situation or distraction. The next phase of the program is all about building confidence through repetition and exposure to new challenges. At the end of this phase, you'll follow up with your trainer to provide the opportunity to ask any questions and troubleshoot any problems you may be having.
Phase 3: Practice Makes Perfect
90 days after training, our goal for you and your pup is that all commands are completed successfully 80-90% of the time and that you graduate from daily use of the e collar, using it only during high adrenaline or high-risk situations, such as off-leash walking.
As an added benefit, you receive:
- Access to our “Board and Proof” program, which provides your pup with a tune-up on training during a short stay at our facilities.
- Lifetime access to our group classes for free!
Commitment & Support
Every dog leaving our boarding program must achieve a “good” or “excellent” result against our training standards. Your trainer will discuss your dog’s progress at the end of Phase 1 and ensure every dog receives a passing score.
Part of what makes our results special is the commitment we make to supporting your dog’s long-term success. Our program is designed with scheduled follow-up appointments to make sure that your new skills are transitioning well to your home life. Additionally, our trainers are available for support during scheduled office hours, and welcome all graduates back for free group classes.
On the rare occasion our 90 day support program hasn’t met your needs, Canine Academy offers a support escalation process to help diagnose and provide solutions to any potential problems.
This package includes six private lessons with a dedicated trainer, access to our training and support library, lifetime group classes, and a remote e-collar you will take home with you. Please contact us for pricing and enrollment dates.
