Private Lessons

There are many reasons why private training may be a better choice for you instead of or in addition to group classes for both you and your dog. Private Training has the advantages of customized instruction with one-on-one attention giving you and your dog maximum results. Dogs that aren’t suitable for a group setting due to fear, hyperactivity or aggression respond very well to private training. Chris Onthank, the owner and founder of Dog Gone Smart, is a noted canine behavioral specialist. His daily practice involves helping dogs with special issues i.e. aggression, separation anxiety, fear, disabilities and training problems.
