Group In-Home Lessons:
Usually focusing on advanced cues and distraction work, tricks, games, (basic cues can be incorporated upon request). Usually
designed for dogs who have already learned basic cues. Friends and neighbors can get together for group lessons providing distractions of having other dogs
around while offering a cheaper solution to private lessons. The following prices are for one-time one hour sessions, you can request multiple hours if you'd like to
meet multiple weeks. Note: We will NOT address behavioral concerns in a group lesson, you must request a private lesson if you need help with any behavioral
concern.
Lessons for 2 or more dogs:
$60/dog/hr


* All behavioral issues including (but not limited to) urination in the house, separation anxiety, on leash aggression or barrier frustration must go
through a consultation before commencing lessons. Initially, we will do a free phone consultation to determine if your needs match with the
services that Special Paws is able to provide. If you then sign up for lessons with Special Paws, the initial portion of the lesson package that you
sign up for will be spent in an in-depth consultation of the behavioral concern you wish to have addressed. If during this time, it is deemed that
Special Paws is unable to provide the level of treatment your dog requires based on severity of behavior, you will be referred to a behaviorist
and will only be charged a $25 consultation fee instead of the regular fee for the lesson.
