  • How Our Private Lessons Work

    In private lessons, we meet one on one with you and dog. You become the dog trainer for your dog and we become your coach. Private lessons can take place at our facility or in your home.  Private Lesson programs begin with a free phone consultation. It's a FREE, NO-OBLIGATION phone call with Nicole LaVarier, the owner and head trainer of Freedom Dog Training & Boarding, Inc.  This is your chance to ask questions about our services and/or discuss personal concerns related to your canine.  This is the first step to becoming a training client.  The phone consultation will help us match you to the program that will best fit your needs.

    Some bonuses that our programs include that set up apart:

    • Unlimited email, text and phone support
    • All necessary training tools included with each program (you will need a crate for your dog)
    • Admittance to our Use It or Lose It and Play & Train* group classes where you can practice your training skills with distractions
    • Maintaining your dog's training while your dog boards with us, so your dog doesn't backslide while boarding.

    I have a 11 month german Shepherd....all I have to say is my dog Bruce has learned more in the two training sessions with Nicole than the 18 previous training sessions with other Trainers. I am extremely excited to see how Bruce is after eight weeks! Thanks Nicole! (The Amazing Dog)

    Want a dog that is both reliable on and off leash?  Our Amazing Dog Program works on building a foundation of obedience on leash and then transitions your dog to off leash obedience as well.

    We'll also cover problem behaviors such as jumping on people and objects, counter surfing, door manners and potty training.  This program can also address more intense behavior issues such as aggression, reactivity and anxiety. You'll be the envy of the neighborhood!
