Joel’s private training benefits dog owners who have little or no experience training a new dog, or owners who have struggled to maintain their dog’s behavior. Joel helps you begin understanding your dog and giving you the voice to keep them under control.

In small group private training, Joel can present in a mini classroom style that allows for hands on demonstration and examples, discussion of potential problems and hundreds of repetitions with your dog. Things that Joel can help you with are:

  • Building a great relationship with your dog
  • Understanding controlled and uncontrolled training environments
  • How to assess your dog’ personality and color
  • Basic Behaviors (Sit, stay, elevated areas, lie down, come)
  • Problem Solving (Jumping, counter surfing, running out the door, barking, aggression)
  • Housebreaking (Teaching permanent or temporary puppy pad training, crate training)
  • Intermediate Behaviors ( Heel, going to “place”, creating distance between you and your dog in training)
  • Advanced Behaviors (Behaviors Joel uses on the set such as play dead, head up, head down, sit up, bow, speak, and retrieve.
