Private Dog Training

Effective Training through Education and Positive Reinforcement

At Gemini Dogs, we emphasize the fun and love in everything we do by teaching positive reinforcement through clicker training. Our training methods are based on proven scientific theory, not punishment. We truly believe that training and behavior modification should be safe, enjoyable, and successful for both you and your dog!

We believe in continued education for all of our trainers through programs such as educational conferences, seminars, videos, and the latest published information. Our staff members are also members of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT), a national organization that believes that all dogs are effectively trained through dog-friendly techniques and therefore are lifelong companions in a relationship based on mutual trust and respect.

Gemini Dogs offers Private Training Lessons Either at Your Home or at Our Facility

Yes, you can have us come to your home and assist you in the training of your dog! With private lessons, you will receive personal attention that is customized to meet the individual needs of you and your dog.

Get one-on-one to enhance your dog's basic skills such as:

  • sit
  • down
  • stand
  • stay
  • come
  • walking on leash
  • leave-it
  • drop-it 
  • give
  • watch me

We can address concerns like:

  • the polite greeting of guests to your home
  • house training
  • leaving food and objects alone
  • separation issues
  • barking
  • destructive chewing
  • puppy biting

Registering for a Private Lesson

  • Complete a registration form (this is the same form we use for group classes - at the bottom where it asks what class, select private in-home training and input your proposed date & time)
  • Email us with your vaccination records (Rabies certificate for dogs over 6 months of age)

We do not handle true aggression cases; please contact Mich directly; we will try to give you some suggestions for now, and refer you to the appropriate veterinary behaviorist, if we feel that one is needed.
