Tiny Diamonds Puppy In-Home Sessions (8-19 weeks)

This in-home session is designed to help owners through the puppy phase of dog ownership. The primary focus in this session will be on socialization and developmental learning that only occurs at this stage of development; getting rules and routines inside the home set up, help with potty training and the critical puppy socialization period that must occur before the age of 20-weeks.  We focus on all the skills that enable a puppy to develop into a great dog!

You only get one chance to train a puppy and we want to make sure you do it right!

• This will include two free eBooks (potty training and how to get started)
• One-on-one individualized instruction in the basics of leadership for puppies
• Skills to socialize with people and other animals
• Skills to teach a soft mouth
• Installation of healthy routines and rules
• How to say please and say hello
• All taught in the convenience of your own home
• 160-item Puppy Socialization Checklist

Total package cost: $110

The next step after the Tiny Diamonds Package would be our Gold In-Home Training Package to start adding the ideas of distraction, outdoors, leash work and recall.

Silver Package: Short, Simple and Focused!

This is the introductory level of our in-home training. It is a 45-minute in-home private session. We typically cover how to get your dog to pay attention using resource control/hand feeding techniques. We also teach how to institute “Non-Negotiable Rules” along with new routines. The goal is to get back to rewarding what we like and redirecting what we don’t. We specifically will work on door skills and how to greet house guests the right way. Let’s face it, if your dog can not pay attention to you within the four walls of your own home, then why would you think he/she would be able to do so in a group class, on a walk or when dealing with any other distractions?

As with any of our services, you can upgrade to the next level for just the price difference between the two… so, no pressure… start small and feel free to upgrade if necessary!

Total Package Cost: $145

Gold Package: What’s the next step?

Once we have the basics of puppy training going on inside the home, we have to start working on paying attention during distractions by heading outdoors and working on recall and leash skills. We will work not only with regular leashes, but also hands-free setups and long lines. If necessary we will discuss the different no pull devices and weigh the pros and cons of each. The Gold Package is the next step after the Tiny Diamonds and helps us understand and prepare for the juvenile/adolescent stage that pops up right after the cute puppy stage ????. This session comes with three (3) 45-minute in-home private sessions, so there is plenty of time to practice and get follow up from the trainer on the things that might need some extra coaching!

Once we have this Gold level mastered, we can move forward to one of two options….more private training with our Platinum Package and working on more dog/dog distractions and public locations, or move to a group setting by attending our Tiny Diamonds Finishing School Group Class.

Gold Package PLUS

This hybrid session includes some in-home private training for both the owner and the dogs…we could not, with any amount of honesty, TRAIN OWNERS, NOT DOGS and offer to do the work for you.  After all, the dogs would end up listening to us and not you. But we can offer the Gold Package (3 in-home sessions with you and the dog to teach you the skills) and then offer 3 private one on one walks with one of our trainers and your dog to work together on these skills. This is the perfect session for those who might be too busy to get all the work in without us trying to train your dog for you!

Once completed, we will offer additional walks at our alumni rate.  A word of caution…if you are not going to put in the time with the dog, we will gain control of your dog on walks and you will find yourself in the same boat as when you first contacted us.

Total package cost: $695
Additional walking sessions or private sessions with you and your dog are $90.

Platinum Package: More Dogs and Public Spaces!

Finally, we have the Platinum Package…this package takes the Gold Package to the next level where we can take one more step toward the perfect pooch!  After learning to pay attention in your home, walk nicely on leash and come when called, we now must tackle the big “D”…Distraction…and there is no better way to do that than outside in the real world. We bring out our dogs to distract your pooch in walking scenarios and public locations. The Platinum package adds two more 45-minute private in-home sessions from the Gold Package, for a total of 5.  This package focuses on the key topics of distraction and attention in everyday environments.  We use these sessions to work in the outside world – usually in your neighborhood, city parks and even dog friendly businesses – learning how to normalize distractions of the real world and get your pooch to learn calm attention can be fun.???? The sky is the limit (depending on how much homework you and your pooch do between sessions).
