A Dog's Dharma
Services, a variety of dog plans to fit your needs

Behavioral Consultation
$125 per (typically 60-90 minutes)
Your dog is perfect, except _____ (fill in blank). Not sure where to begin or even how to stop your dog from going potty in the house, creating toothpicks from your furniture, greeting guests with a body slam, or any other inappropriate behaviors?

We’ll meet with you in your environment, discuss your dog’s history, current situation and your goals. Instead of a preset agenda of lessons that you may or may not use outside of the classroom, you will have a personalized plan that is based on your lifestyle and desired results.

Private Lessons
Packages are based on number of sessions needed
After the Behavioral Consultation, Kris will create a plan and package that integrates your goals with your lifestyle. Whether you want to learn basic manners or need help with behavior issues, your dog will become a well-mannered member of the family.

Tristan Sit Stay Common goals are:
  • Basic & advanced manners

  • Biting/nipping
  • Multiple dog household
  • Fears

Day Training in Your Home
Packages are based on number of sessions needed
We do the training for you!

No time to train your dog yourself? Torn between sending him off to camp for 2+ weeks yet would miss your buddy in the evenings? Day Training may just be the answer. Kris will come to your home during the day to train your best friend while you are at work. Each session is an hour long, Monday - Friday. Minimum 2 weeks.

You won't have to learn the mechanics of how to train your dog. At the end of the program we’ll have a Transfer Lesson, where we’ll go over the skills your dog has learned. Because your dog already knows these cues, he'll be more lenient on your learning curve.

$330 | 3 weeks | 1 session each week
You have a new puppy. Yeah! Now what? Yikes! Those adorable little eyes are staring at you for guidance and you just realized that he didn't come with instructions.
