private Sessions

these unique training programs are built for owners who are dedicated to playing an active role in the training of their dog. we will work one on one from beginning to end in order to reach the goals that you have set for your dog. these programs will be taught primarily in your home. depending on the program, we will also travel to local, pet-friendly locations in order to test your dog’s new skills in real world situations.

my programs have been built around the idea of long term success. the training system I use produces not just a dog with exceptional obedience, but a dog that also performs this obedience with enthusiasm.

once you have completed a training program you become a member of the Scarlet K9 family. you will have my contact information so that you can contact me personally if you ever have any questions relating to your dog, and I will always be there to offer you support. you will also have access to current and future instructional videos that will help you maintain and even further your training.

behavior bootcamp

6 months and older

this program is designed for dogs that suffer from fear, anxiety, separation distress, or aggressive behavior. this program gives us more time to properly pinpoint the cause of these behavioral issues and help your dog overcome them. 

everything that is included in the premium dog program is also included in this program. any other equipment that is deemed necessary (a muzzle for example) will also be included in the cost of the program. 

when it comes to behavioral issues like fear and anxiety, we show through obedience that the dog has the ability to control the environment through their behavior i.e. “if i sit, i get rewarded.” small victories lead to confidence. and confidence leads to strength in behavior. once we have that, we can desensitize your dog to all the triggers that make him fearful or anxious. 

with aggressive dogs we teach the foundational obedience skills and then use those to give the dog a job instead of displaying aggressive behavior, while also desensitizing them to whatever triggers their aggression. 

instead of punishing the aggressive behaviors, we show the dog that there is no need to show those aggressive behaviors. the dog learns that good things happen whenever the trigger is presented. because of this, we completely change the dog’s mindset towards the trigger.
