For a dog who’s truly a member of the family
Your dog is family. You want him to be part of everything. That requires the best dog manners.
That’s where I come in—your Alexandria concierge dog trainer.
How concierge dog training works
Here’s how I help you enjoy a well-trained dog
Choose the Right Program
Bespoke Concierge Dog Training Programs
3-week Basic Manners Obedience Package
Perfect for new and long-loved dogs alike who could use help with manners like sit, down, stay, come, leave it, polite leash walking, etc. Whether you want to enjoy a well-behaved dog at home, on walks, at outdoor school functions, or while sipping a glass of vino on a winery lawn, this is the concierge dog training package for you.
3 weeks of training. 14 total sessions. 1 well-mannered dog.
4-week Better Behavior Package
This package is for dogs who’ve been getting themselves into a bit of trouble—some barking at other dogs while on leash, perhaps, or at visitors in your home. Or maybe it’s a bit too much enthusiasm when saying hello to people. (Let’s sit politely instead of jumping up, hmm?) No worries; I’ll get things squared away!
4 weeks of training. 18 total sessions. 1 much easier dog.
6-week Extra Help Package
A little more time for dog lovers who could use some extra help. Have a dog who needs both manners and behavior work? Or a dog with multiple issues to address? Whatever your extra dog training needs, this package has you covered.
6 weeks of training. 24 total sessions. 1 relieved dog lover.
“I recently adopted a 3 year old street dog from Puerto Rico. While Ghost has a lot of street smarts, she was not used to the leash or trained in appropriate social behaviors with other dogs. I can’t say enough about how much Kim has helped us begin the process. Kim has a great sense of dog behavior and has helped me a great deal to understand better my dog’s fears and sensitivities, how to use positive reinforcement to begin the process of developing more appropriate behaviors, and to help me bond with my dog.”
