Private Lessons:

 

While we love our group classes, they are not suitable for all dogs and we find that adolescent or adult dogs that have not been through puppy classes with us, benefit from starting off with private lessons. Other reasons for private lessons may be as follows:

  • You have other commitments during class times

  • You dog requires more individual attention

  • Your dog has social problems and cannot be in a class with other dogs

  • Your dog cannot cope with the training environment 

 

Private lessons are usually 60 minutes long and may be conducted in your own home or at the training fields.

Please note that private lessons are intended to teach basic training skills and handling techniques and NOT to address specific behaviour problems. If you need help with behaviour problems, please see CONSULTATIONS. 

 

Due to time constraints I am personally not able to do private lessons on an ongoing basis. My very competent assistant, Inge Buchner, who is also a qualified behaviourist conducts these lessons for me. If you wish to book a private lesson, please be in contact with me and I will refer you to Inge.

Costs:

Single private lesson: R550 (Simonstown to Noordhoek) or R650 (Kalk Bay to Constantia).

Cost includes travel, clicker and training notes.

 

Private lesson packages:

Private lessons are an excellent option for older dogs that have not attended puppy classes and may be distracted, stressed or reactive in group classes. We offer the following private lesson packages to make this option more affordable:

Travel costs will be added to fees for areas outside the Deep South for private lesson packages.
