Private Training

You got a dog because you want to be able to go out and make memories with them!

Let us, help you make those memories

For Dog’s Sake YYC provides private one-on-one sessions in Calgary and Surrounding Areas. We prefer this training option for the majority of dogs and owners because it is more convenient for the owner because we come to you but also, you are provided 100% of the trainers attention and the training plan is customized exactly for you and your dog. You don’t need to have a behavioural problem to do in-home training if you want to brush up on basic training, or learn how to use a clicker. This provides you with a great option for direct access to a trainer.

All sessions are 60 minutes in length and include support between training sessions.

Private Training is also beneficial for issues that are not addressed in class, or maybe too serious making you unable to attend a class, some examples are:

  • Separation Anxiety

  • Reactivity

  • Aggression

  • Fearfulness

  • Fear Reactivity

  • Poor Impulse Control

  • Counter Surfing (Taking food from the counter)

  • Digging in the Backyard

  • Chewing on Inappropriate Items

  • Barking

  • Pulling on Leash

  • Poor or No Recall (Coming When Called)

  • Leash Biting

  • Jumping on you or guests

  • House Training

  • Guarding Food, Objects or People

  • Problem Solving


We also have Remote Consultations available at a discounted rate! If you would like to 

Remote Consultations:

45 Minutes – $112.50
30 Minutes – $75.00

If you are not sure you need a trainer to come to your house, you’re not in the For Dog’ Sake Training Services area, or you need a training refresher/have a training question. A Remote Consultation Training session is the perfect option for you. A Remote sessions can be completed via telephone or by a video call. 

If you are a new client, It is necessary to fill out a Pre Training Questionnaire prior to your Remote consultation, this will help your trainer determine if a phone consult is the best route for you and your dog.


Topics that may be addressed in remote consultation are:

  • Basic manners instruction

  • Puppy preparation and acclimation

  • Pre- and post-adoption counselling

  • Housetraining

  • Counter surfing, jumping up, barking, and other common “nuisance” behaviours

  • Foundation skills for loose leash walking

  • Foundation skills for leash reactivity

  • Preparing your dog for a new baby

  • Remote consultation may also be an appropriate first step for cases in which the dog is aggressive to visitors. We can start you on some skills while your dog is relaxed and then apply them at our first in-person meeting

Don’t see your concern here? Contact us and we can discuss whether remote consultation makes sense for your situation


Day Training – COMING SOON

We are work on the process of having day training available to our clients. Day Training is when the dog trainer does the bulk of the training with your dog – not you.

Day training may benefit you if you have a busy schedule and can not find time to train your own dog or if you are unable to practice the follow up homework from a private training session.

If you are interested in learning additional information about the benefits of day training, feel free to contact us!
