What To Expect from our Private Training Programs

Our Private Lessons programs involve one of our trainers coming to your home and working alongside you and your dog. We will train both you and your dog from the ground up to achieve the desired level of obedience. Not only will your dog listen to you, but they will trust you, respect you, and WANT to obey you! It’s almost too good to be true.

Your trainer will teach you all about how to train your dog, starting from the simple stuff like luring and marking behaviors, to the more complicated issues such as reactivity and anxiety. You and your trainer will work together to build a strong foundation for your dog and to create a bond between you and your dog that is unbreakable!

Private Lessons are very time-consuming from you as the owner, so it’s imperative that you have a relatively open schedule in order to make progress! If you think your home life is too demanding and you won’t be able to put in the necessary time daily to work with your pup, you may want to consider one of our board and train programs instead.

The team at AvidDog has been fantastic working with me and my new puppy! I’m so glad I started early with them and have used both the in-home training and just finished a board and train. The team is knowledgeable and professional – and fun. Strong recommendation for anyone wanting to have a well trained dog and take advantage of Wilmington’s dog friendly environment. It is a lot of work for the dog and the owner, and Avid really helps both of us focus for success.
