Private Instruction

Best Friends offers private lessons in basic manners, obedience, agility, rally obedience and tracking. Private sessions provide a more focused and dog-specific approach to your training objectives. Often, techniques that might take 8 weeks to cover in a group class can be taught in as little as 3 or 4 private sessions. Whether you want to correct a counter-surfing problem, stop unwanted jumping on people or hone your performance edge for upcoming competitions, Best Friends can help! Call to book your appointment today.

All lessons are given at our training facility. Private lessons are available weekday afternoons (Mon-Thurs, 12:00 – 5:00pm) only.

Private (1 hour): $40.00 + HST

Value Package:    4 x 1hr lessons – $140 + HST

Please call to book a session  (613) 667-9948.  Due to a rapidly changing appointment schedule, we cannot book appointments via e-mail.

****UPDATE AUGUST 2nd, 2017:   Due to a heavy summer workshop and clinic schedule, and overwhelming demand for behavioural counselling/private training, we are booked solid until early October.   There are NO August/Sept appointments available.   We regret this situation, but we have reached capacity.  If you urgently require private training, we suggest you contact other training schools for a quicker response.
