Private Consultations

Looking for some one-on-one time with one of our certified professional dog trainers? Have behavior concerns or obedience questions about your dog? We can help with a personalized and unique consultation, tailored to you and your dog’s needs.

One of our trainers will help you identify the causes of your dog’s behavior and learn new skills to keep you and your pup living happily together. Every consult includes an easy-to-follow training plan to start at home.

Some of our most frequent private consultation requests are:

  • We’re thinking of getting a puppy or a dog and would like some general advice before we adopt!
  • Walking our dog is a miserable experience. He pulls so hard on the leash. Help!
  • My dog won’t share. She guards her toys and rawhides inside the house.
  • We are worried! Recently, our dog has become more aggressive toward other dogs and we’re afraid to take him out.

These, and many more, are the types of behaviors that can be addressed one-on-one.

Private consultations are available remotely, via phone or a meeting app such as Zoom, or in-person, either inside or outside in one the AWS fields, as availability allows.

Please note: Masks are required indoors at AWS, regardless of vaccination status. Fully vaccinated individuals are welcome to remove their masks for outdoor classes. We ask that unvaccinated individuals remain masked outdoors. This masking policy is subject to change and is at the discretion of the instructor. We thank you for your patience and understanding as we work together to keep our staff, volunteers, clients and students – including the children in our humane education programs – safe.

Ask about our Veterans discount! The discount is grant-funded and may only be available for a limited time.

If you’d like to schedule an appointment for a private consultation, please start by tell us a little about you and your dog’s needs. Once you submit the form, one of our trainers will be in touch with you to discuss the most appropriate way to conduct your private consultation, whether it is over the phone, via a meeting app like Zoom or in person, or a combination of the three.
