Private Training with SideKick Dog Training starts with a 60 minute Initial Session; this session is discussion-based and gives us the chance to gather information about your dog, your concerns, and your goals. Getting as much information as possible helps us provide ideas and strategies that are going to be a good fit for you, your family, your lifestyle, and your dog, so that everyone can see and feel some relief right now! A summary of your session after the fact, so you have some materials to reference and look back on, too! With some breathing room from the problems you're experiencing, teaching and learning new things becomes a lot easier for everyone!


Beyond the Initial Session, the number of sessions needed is based on your goals, your specific concerns, and, of course, your dog! You may get everything you want from just the Initial Session; or we may suggest a Training Program or group class that fits your needs and helps you reach your goals!


You have the option of an in-person Initial Session or a remote Initial Session. And you might be thinking, "Could I actually get any help with a remote session?" Or, "Don't you need to see my dog in action?"

The answers are yes, you can get lots of help with a remote session - modern technology is really great that way! And, no, we don't need to see your dog doing those undesirable behaviors (check out this blog post about why we actually prefer not to see the behavior in most cases)!

Remote sessions have a bunch of benefits:

  • It's easier for your dog (and, by extension, you) to focus!

  • You can get the help you need wherever you are! Service areas and Travel Fees don't apply to remote sessions, so you could live anywhere nationwide (or even overseas) and still get assistance with your dog from the comfort of your home (in your pajamas even - I don't care)!

  • A recording of the session can be provided upon request!

  • In-person COVID-19 precautions and policies don't apply to remote sessions!

  • Finally, remote sessions can be safer than in-person sessions. COVID-19 is less of a concern; heat or cold or other weather is less of a concern; or, depending on how your dog is with guests, there can be a lot less concern about how your dog will react to strangers in the home or yard!

The ultimate goal of the Initial Session - and training, in general - is to provide you with the tools you need to work with your SideKick successfully; and, remote sessions open another window of opportunity for you to get the assistance you're looking for with your SideKick!
