Training in the Comfort of Your Home


Private Consultation & Training

Gentle Touch Pet Training will design the training program that will best meet your individual needs. These lessons are held either in your home or can be held at our training center. We start with puppies as young as six weeks old or adult dogs of any age.

A training program, can be tailored to meet your individual needs and can address all basic training (such as come, stay, walk on a leash) or we can concentrate on a specific behavioral issue such as barking, digging, chewing, housetraining, aggression or fear.

The cost is $95 per session.  There is an additional $10 travel fee if the trainer is traveling more than 1/2 hour and less than 1 hour from their house.  If the drive is more than 1 hour, there is an additional $20 travel fee.  Sessions run approximately 1 hour.

We will Train your Dog in your Home

Gentle Touch Pet Training realizes that some folks are either just too busy or do not feel comfortable taking on all the training for their dog.  With the “Trainer Trains” program, one of our experienced trainers will come to your house two or three times per week (this is negotiated with the trainer).  The program lasts for a month (3 times per week) or six weeks (2 times a week) for a total of 12 sessions. The trainer will work with your dog on their own (without your assistance) two times and then every third visit the dog’s owner is asked to participate.  This way you will be brought up to speed on what’s been trained and given some simple instructions on how to keep the behaviors strong. The combination of a knowledgeable trainer working with your dog and frequent participation by you will help you to  understand what and how we’ve taught behaviors.  The “Trainer Trains” private sessions have been very successful.

The basic cost of the program is $1200.  If your home is more than a half an hour drive for the trainer, an additional travel fee of $10 per session may apply.  Each session will run 45 minutes to 1 hour. To set up this training program with your dog you may call us at (805) 481-1490 or e-mail
