Evolution Dog Training offers:

Private In Home Instruction

Private in home dog training lessons are highly beneficial for both owners and dogs.

Our one-on-one training takes place in the very environment the behavior is occurring. We focus on building a strong foundation of skills that will help you and your dog navigate through everyday life.  

Our in home training program gives you the convenience of scheduling lessons that fit your schedule. We have daytime, evening, and weekend hours available. During a in home private training session, the trainer is able to solely focus only on you and your dog. You have the trainers undivided attention to help you fine tune your training skills, answer any questions you may have, and to address any challenges that you may be experiencing while working with your dog.

We start off with an initial consult which is typically 1.5 hours. During this time will discuss training goals, training equipment, and recommendations. A training plan will be developed to provide you with the skills necessary to get started working towards your goals.

Once you have selected a training package- we will meet either weekly or bi-weekly. Each session is 45minutes-1 hour long.

Please keep in mind that training your dog is not a quick process and will take some time and some commitment from you.

Behavior Modification Programs

What is Behavior Modification and how is it different from training?

Unlike dog obedience training that trains a dog to perform specific actions when requested, ideally behavior modification looks to change a dog's reaction to a situation, a person, a thing, and animal(s). 

The overall program works to change how the dog thinks, feels, and acts. By focusing on what is going on inside the dog.

Behavior Modification programs are for dogs who are reactive, anxious, fearful, excitable, and those who suffer w/ separation anxiety

Reactive Rover Support Group

Living with a reactive or fearful dog can be very stressful for their guardians. Owners often feel embarrassed, angry, isolated, or get depressed by their beloved dog's behavior. This can lead to withdrawing from their friends, family and their community.

The mission of our reactive rover support group is to provide a safe, non -judgmental, constructive place to discuss your dog's progress and setbacks in conquering his/her reactivity. The group will be a safe space to vent your frustrations and to make connections with people who really do understand what you are going through.

We welcome the owners of both Reactive and Ex- reactive dogs!

Light refreshments are served.

Remember to bring a picture of your beloved dog to share with the group.

NO DOGS, this is for PEOPLE ONLY!!
