What We Do
Private Dog Training

If the classroom setting is not right for you, we also offer private training. We have a qualified staff to help you train your dog one-on-one at our Animal Care Center or in your home. Whether it's helping you teach your dog basic behaviors or addressing more specific behavior problems such as reactivity, house soiling, destruction or another issue, this option may be more convenient and effective for some pet parents.


Sessions held at our Menands Animal Care Center

1 hour - basic manners, house soiling or destructive habits such as chewing or digging - $125 ($100 for alumni)

1.5 hours - aggression, separation anxiety and/or fear - $175 ($125 for alumni)
(Please note that all appointments for specialty behaviors are 1.5-hour sessions.)

All private sessions require a $50 deposit (72-hour notice of cancellation required for refund). Follow-up sessions after the initial one can be one-hour sessions.


In-home sessions

$175 for a one-hour session within a reasonable distance ($150 for alumni). Please call us at 518.434.8128 ext 201 to discuss your location.

All private sessions requires a $50 deposit (72-hour notice of cancellation required for refund).
