Private In-Home Training For You & Your Dog

Safe, Effective Solutions During COVID-19

The safety and well being of our clients and team is incredibly important to us.  We continue to offer in-person/outdoor private training sessions and have implemented protocols to be in line with Local, State, and Federal recommendations.  They are as follows:

We are incredibly grateful for all of our clients, and are committed to keeping everyone safe and healthy as we navigate these ever changing times!

The At-Home Training Solution
Does your dog have a specific issue that you need help with? Are you unable to participate in a group class due to your schedule constraints or your dog’s behavior? Would you prefer one-on-one coaching from a qualified professional so you can make more rapid progress with your dog?
With private lessons you and your dog have the undivided attention of a professional BravoPup trainer. We focus exclusively on your goals, teaching you how to effectively work with your dog. Private sessions last an hour and are highly customized with expert client coaching and written follow-up reports. Training can be in-home or in outdoor environments (or both) depending on your individual needs.
The Process:
We start with an Initial Evaluation to gain a full understanding of your dog’s behavior issues and your training goals. Then we recommend a training plan and appropriate package e to help you achieve those goals.

Here is what we can and cannot help you with:

Our trainers are highly skilled and experienced in many areas of dog and puppy behavior. From preparing you to bring home a new puppy to needing help with a dog that is fearful, leash reactive, excessively barking, jumps and pulls on leash and everything in between, we can help. 

We regret that we are not able to offer in-person private training for dogs that have the following behaviors: Dog to dog aggression, dog to human aggression, dogs with a bite history, resource guarding and separation anxiety. Separation anxiety requires specialized training. We highly recommend Malena DeMartini:

A comprehensive behavior evaluation that may last up to 90 minutes. We collect a complete case history on your dog’s behavior and discuss your training goals in depth. Based on our findings, we’ll recommend a training plan and package that fits your needs.
Single session: $125
4-Pack: $425
8-Pack: $825
This is the cost-effective solution for busy owners who don’t have time to devote to training but want a well-behaved dog. We come to your home and train your dog on the weekdays while you are at work. Then on the weekend we coach you and the dog together in a “transfer session” so that you stay in step with what your dog is learning.
12 pack: $1230
16 pack: $1600
If you are interested in private training, please fill out the Private Training Intake Form. We’ll match your needs with one of our professional trainers and put them in direct contact with you for scheduling. Our trainers are very busy! The trainer may need to schedule 2-4 weeks in advance.

Live Remote Instruction

Our Live Remote instruction uses the zoom platform to teach live, not pre-recorded, classes. This is the perfect way to benefit from group training for those dogs that are not yet ready for in-person classes. 

Your highly educated and experienced instructor Holden Svirsky, CTC, CSAT, is a graduate of ‘The Academy for Dog Trainers’ and has developed these classes specifically for remote learning. 


Covid-19 Protocols

Safe, Effective Solutions During COVID-19

Covid-19 protocols are continually changing. We are aware that many industries are relaxing their mask wearing requirements. Mask wearing is now optional for all students and instructors. 

If you are feeling unwell or have been exposed to covid, we ask that you stay home. 

We are incredibly grateful for all of our clients, and are committed to keeping everyone safe and healthy as we navigate these ever changing times!
