Private Dog Training Lessons

Private Dog Training Lessons

Get Started

Tucker Pup's offers private dog training lessons in addition to group classes.

Private lessons may be necessary when classes aren't enough to help your dog work out the kinks, or if you don't have time for a class week after week. This can be especially useful with issues such as aggression, resource guarding, or continued potty accidents, which requires much more time and a different environment than a group class allows. Private lessons are also helpful if you are trying to work on a specific issue and don't need to cover everything that might be taught in a group class.

Private lessons are provided by our training instructor, Mark Julias (view Mark's bio). Mark can set up a consultation and help you develop a road map to success, using as many or as few lessons as you need.
