In Home Obedience/Manners Training

How do I know if in-home training or group classes would be a better fit for my dog?

Take the time to think about the following benefits of in-home training:


  • A group class is filled with high level distractions.  It is often difficult for a new owner and/or a beginner dog to listen and retain information during class with the  noise and movement of multiple dogs and owners.
  • Training at home gives owners the advantage of practicing skills in the environment your dog most frequently resides.
  • Personal attention allows the trainer to focus on the individual needs of the client and allows the trainer to readjust curriculum if necessary.
  • Working in your home is convenient, time efficient, and flexible with your schedule.
  • Note:  If you would like private training, but do not want to work in your home, you can also train one-on-one with your trainer at Central Bark in Slinger, WI, located in Washington County.

    *Please call or email for prices and more specific curriculum details.  Nicole can assist you in the best training option for you and your dog.  She looks forward to your inquiry!  
    ​Many dog owners choose to do private training before entering a group class.  After a private lesson, dog and owner are more likely to succeed in the group class.
