IN-HOME TRAINING
One-on-One In-Home Sessions

In these four sessions, we will assess your dog in its home environment or our facility and put together a comprehensive approach/plan to work towards achieving your goals, whether they be obedience and/or behavioral issues.

This program covers any issues on the walk (lunging, barking, growling, pulling, reacting to other dogs, etc.), as well as all of the basic commands on-leash – Sit/Stay, Down/Stay, Place, Come/Recall. We will also address behavior problems, such as jumping up, mouthing, nipping, counter surfing, or any other issues you might be experiencing.

Our unique approach to dog training is geared more towards addressing the fundamental state of mind of your dog, rather than strictly focusing on creating rehearsed behaviors. In other words, we are much more concerned with creating a happy, healthy, balanced dog than creating a dog that simply knows a few obedience commands.

The Good Dog trainers specialize in E-Collar/Remote Collar training, and all dogs that go through one-on-one sessions will be remote collar trained (with the exception of some Walk Doctor cases). If your goal is to have complete freedom and dependability off-leash, inside and outside, our revolutionary approach will give you fantastic results.

The initial 2-hour session is comprised of a consultation, assessment, and hands-on training with you and your dog. You will begin to see dramatic changes in your dog’s behavior within this first session. The next three sessions are 1 hour each, where we will continue to work hands-on with you and your dog on all of the above behaviors. In this program, you will be working with Laura or Brittany, The Good Dog’s head one-on-one trainers.

At your home: $1000* **
At our LA dog training facility: $650*

**Cities outside New Orleans and Marigny area will require an extra travel cost.


Off-Leash Basics Program

This program is for the owner who wants 100% recall in any situation, and the freedom, fun, and peace of mind that comes from having this training. In these three sessions, Sean will introduce you and your dog to the amazing world of low-level remote collar training, creating the dog that comes back to you every time you call him, no matter where you are or what is going on around you. Whether you are looking to off-leash hike with your dog, visit the dog beach, have control at the dog park, or are dealing with a dog that bolts through doors and runs away, this program is for you!

The initial session/consultation is 1.5 hours, and the consequent two sessions are one hour each.  In this program, you will be working with Laura or Brittany, The Good Dog’s head one-on-one trainers.

$500*

*Price does not include a Dogtra or Educator E-collar – which range from $175 to $220, depending on your dog’s size.

‘The Walk Doctor’ Program

Is walking your dog a nightmare? Has it become something you dread instead of something you look forward to? We can change all of that in as little as two sessions.

The walk is one of the most important components of your relationship with your dog – it is your primary opportunity to create the proper relationship through leadership, structure, and impulse control. If your dog is pulling or dragging you on-leash; reactive/aggressive to other dogs, people, bikes, skateboards, etc; marking every bush, and generally making your daily walk a stressful part of the day, you are undermining your relationship in more ways than one, and causing what should be an enjoyable, fun activity for both of you, to be a dreaded event.

It does not have to be that way! If the walk is anything but a pleasurable and relaxing experience, don’t waste another day being frustrated with your dog. With the right tools, strategies, and approach, you can massively improve your walk, and your bond with your dog.

Many owners are under the impression that it takes weeks or months to train an obedient walk, but with our unique training system, we can create amazing results in virtually no time.

In The Walk Doctor program, you will meet with Sean at the North Hollywood park for two sessions – both sessions are 1 hour. In these sessions, you and Sean will work together to address and significantly improve all of the issues you are having on the walk. In this program, you will be working with Laura or Brittany, The Good Dog’s head one-on-one trainers.

Here are a couple examples of how we can dramatically change a walk in a short amount of time:

*Does not include a prong/training collar, if you need one. We sell Herm Sprenger brand prong collars (the best!) for $30.
