Training Programs: Any age, any breed, any problem

How our programs work:

Positive Tails Dog Training programs include everything you need to help reach your training goals. When we meet with you for our initial consultation, we will recommend a course of training designed specifically to help you achieve your goals. We will explain the differences between our program models and make some recommendations specific to you and your dog. Then you simply choose the program that best matches your needs and your lifestyle.

Private Lessons

These programs teach your dog to be well mannered, dependably obedient, on and off leash, even around distractions. Geared towards the essential skills every dog must have, our Private Lesson programs are for the family or individual who wants to take an active part in the complete training process from start to finish.

There are several benefits to private lessons. First, you get 100% of the trainer's attention: it's just you, your dog, and the trainer. No other clients or dogs will be around to create distractions during your session. Second, these lessons are tailored to your family, your dog, your lifestyle, and your goals. Your trainer works with you to develop a program that works the best for you and your dog. Third, the lessons can be scheduled to work around your busy schedule. We are flexible and want to help you have a successful training experience! Imagine having your dog hike with you in the foothills, walk peacefully on the loop trail, or just play off leash at the park. You can have all this and more by investing in private lessons. It all starts by calling us today for your free consultation.

Immersion Training

Think of what it would be like to have the ideal dog...the dog of your dreams: a dog that pays attention to you and listens to your every command, a dog that earns compliments everywhere he goes. Now imagine having all that and having the hardest work done for you!  Positive Tails clients who choose our popular Immersion Programs enjoy the countless benefits of having their dog trained by a professional trainer, all while they are busy at work or away on a well-deserved vacation.

The Immersion Program is ideal for an active family or individual who wants to be involved with their dog's learning process but wants a little bit of help with the beginning stages of training. We will teach your dog how to reliably listen in any situation, even under severe distractions and we will teach YOU how to maintain the training established during Immersion Training.

An Immersion Training program saves you valuable time and a lot of hard work as well as the benefit of continued learning for your dog. It will give you a dog that is trained faster and more reliably with a stronger foundation of all of the commands with less effort on your part. This program will give you a dog with all of the commands needed for control in any environment and it all begins with a simple free consultation.


One program is all you need.

The right training solution is a serious investment that will give you years of happiness with your dog and you won't have to worry about doing several programs, one after another, to reach your goals. We'll design a program that will help you reach your goals, and we'll be there every step of the way.

Here are just some of the extras that are included with all of our programs:

  • Reliability around distractions
  • Unlimited phone, email, and text support
  • Unlimited Follow-Up sessions to ensure training success
  • Fully customized training approach: All of our programs may be customized to suit your family, your dog, your lifestyle, and your training goals.
