SSDT has a sweet spot for rescues so anyone who has adopted a dog from a rescue can enjoy a discount on our services! In addition to helping with dogs already in the home, we can also assist you in finding a great canine match at one of our local rescues and then support you while you adjust to your new lives together. And if you already have a dog we can work together to match your current dog's personality with dogs you're interested in adopting.

Consider our "Raising Puppy Right" package and we can help with house training, socialization and general training during your work day in addition to providing you with all you need to know to raise your puppy just right!

Day Training 

$90/hour

We train your dog for you in your own home either while you're away or otherwise occupied your home. Day Training is an excellent addition to Customized Training since a skilled trainer can help your dog learn new behaviors quickly. You'll receive an edited video after each Day Training visit so you can practice your dog's new skills ensuring that they will respond properly to you as well as to the trainer. This is a great option for you if you don't want to take the time to train your dog yourself. Please be aware that it is still necessary for you to practice with your dog to make sure they maintain their new manners.

Leash Reactivity Training Series  

$50 for one-time workshop to get started 

$45 for first 1/2 hour lesson with edited video of the session 

$30 for each additional 1/2 hour lesson WITHOUT video -OR- $45 for each additional 1/2 hour lesson WITH video

If you have a dog who barks and and lunges at other dogs when you're out for a leash walk this specialized training series might just be the answer for you and your dog! SSDT uses many common positive techniques for addressing reactivity but also focuses on a training technique called Behavioral Adjustment Training (BAT) developed by Grisha Stewart. BAT teaches your dog to offer more appropriate behaviors when faced with other dogs on leash. Additionally, you will learn to read your dog's body language so you can respond quickly to their needs and get them out of hairy situations. Once you have attended the one-time workshop you can start scheduling your lessons which take place in the presence of a helper dog and their handler walking at a comfortable distance away from you and your dog. You receive an edited video after your first lesson and when requested after each lesson to help you improve your handling and observation skills.
