Joyful Hound Personalized Training & Coaching PackagesIt's simple. Upon purchase of a Personalized Dog Training Package I come to your home, where you and your dog are most relaxed, least distracted, and most able to focus. Each lesson is geared to what you want and need to learn. You'll receive exercises and activities to bring along the behaviours that are important to you and your family. We meet as frequently or infrequently as you need, we can shift the time and day to accommodate your schedule, and you can have family members join your sessions.
Don't wait to start learning how to turn your dog into the best companion you ever had.
