Training Services

Family Dog Training - Mark Minnerly - Dallas Dog Trainer$200 per Meeting
Our private lessons are offered at your convenience. During each private lesson you and your family will work one on one with your dog and the trainer. No dog is too old to train, however, we recommend starting as soon as possible. Our Standard Curriculum is used in all our Training Programs and is designed for both puppies and untrained adult dogs.

“Private Training is customized to your wants and needs”

Individual private lessons may cover everything from house training your dog, to basic obedience commands such as “sit”, “stay”, “down”, and “come”, to walking on a leash properly and how to sit and take direction. We also teach you how to cure bad habits such as jumping up on guests, nipping, chewing, excessive barking, digging and other destructive behaviors. If you are just having a problem with something or you would like your dog to learn something brand new such as off leash training or a special trick or skill, we will be here to help you.

Confidence and agility are taught in advanced obedience lessons along with physical conditioning, tracking, field work, and aggression control. Training in show and competition preparation is also available.

We are ready to help you not only with your dog’s training but with many other issues as well. Health, nutrition and behavior counseling are all included.

We offer individual private follow up sessions at the clients home for $100 each if or when needed.
