Some thoughts about private and small group training

Group classes are great for distractions and socialization, but many times the varied skill levels in a class make it difficult for you to get the attention you need to solve your problems or progress as well as you would like. Seminars are great fun, too, but in many cases may not address your needs or understand your relationship with your dog. Private and small group lessons at North Star Dog Training gives you the opportunity to tailor your training to your needs and your schedule. Whether it is agility, obedience or tracking, Carolyn's expertise at putting the team together will help you focus on your needs and goals to become the successful team you want. Talk to us about your goals and needs and let us work out a training program for you. See what a difference individualized instruction and small focus group work can make in training!


A word about puppies

Socialization for puppies is a must and you should plan on attending a reputable training class. Play sessions and basic instructions are just what they need. But if you want a great performance dog, schedule some private time to make sure you start your future "star" on the right path and address any issues. This is critical to a good relationship in obedience, agility or tracking.

"Carolyn's puppy curriculum is outstanding! She stresses having a strong foundation and building a meaningful relationship with your puppy which really sets you up for success. Her support during those first tricky months was invaluable. The depth of her knowledge and experience is endless. she's the best!
