If you’re unsure please schedule a phone consult to ensure you book the right service for your family.

Notes About Packages & Pricing Options:

  • All in-home training packages are completed by a Certified Professional Senior Trainer

  • The vast majority of behavioural concerns can effectively be addressed in the studio environment. If a move to in-home sessions after several sessions at the studio will provide the most value for you and your pup, this is decided together with your trainer and your training schedule and pricing is adjusted accordingly

  • For more complex or multi-faceted behavioural issues or concerns, including but not limited to: reactivity, separation anxiety, fearfulness, or bite histories, a minimum of 4, one-hour sessions are required, but there is a high likelihood that additional sessions will be needed. If you would like to discuss your training plan in greater detail, please schedule a 1/2 hour phone consult with a trainer to learn more!

"We adopted our boy, Henry last year who is a 90 lbs pitty mix. He had little training... We reached out to NBDT and had 4 private sessions with Liz, which was a life saver!"

"We had a great time working with Liz at NBDT. Liz was super positive, listened closely to our concerns and was able to come up with some very effective but simple strategies to work on issues like resource guarding and leash reactivity."

Rebecca Schonnop

"We have nothing but wonderful things to say about the trainers who are super knowledgeable, take so much time to focus on your pups and families needs, and always follow-up with helpful email tips and training suggestions to practice at home. We will continue to go back for all our training needs."
