1 Session


This is an hour long session that will allow Mason to be introduced to the dog in your home environment. He will talk with you about the issues that are occurring, why they are occurring, and most importantly, how training will provide significant help in eliminating these negative behaviors while providing ways to reinforce good ones!

(If you decide to purchase a package of lessons, this cost will be deducted from the costs of the program)
