Smart Private Lessons

At Smart Dog School we strive to make your life with your pet as enjoyable as possible. Learning how to effectively communicate with your dog and discovering what works for your personal situation are just a few challenges that can be addressed in our Smart Private One on One Lessons. You will be paired with a Full Time Professional SDS Trainer with the goal of providing immediate solutions for you and your family. We don’t follow a standardized “Cookie Cutter” curriculum during these lessons. We focus on exactly what you want on that particular day. We specialize in fixing unwanted behaviors. We understand that priorities change as life seems to continually get in the way. No worries. Your Smart Dog School family is here to help 24/7 in any way we can. We are all ears and will give you 100% of your attention with the experience of over a thousand dogs behind us. Regardless if your dog is suffering from anxiety, aggression or fear we can help. Additionally we offer In Home Lessons on a case by case basis. Any questions, don’t hesitate to ask or schedule a FREE CONSULTATION above.

SMART Dog School was founded on the idea that trainers from all backgrounds could team up to provide the best in dog training solutions for our clients.  All of our trainers are full time and certified professionals with over decades worth of experience.

So what do we do?  That’s simple….  We specialize in solutions.  Clients never enter our door because their dog won’t sit.  They need our help because their dog is:

  • Biting them or guests
  • Pulling them on walks
  • Barking incessantly 
  • Digging up the yard
  • Jumping on everyone
  • Guarding food & toys
  • Refusing to come back
  • Uncontrollably excited

Our trainers at SMART Dog School have a proven track record of providing practical solutions to all of these challenging unwanted behaviors

S.M.A.R.T. is our acronym that stands for See Mark And Reward Training.  This continually reminds us to recognize good behaviors instead of taking them for granted.  

“We control consequences to change the probability of future behavior.  Thats the SMART Way.”
