Private Training

Private training allows for a trainer to come and work with you and your dog on the issues that you need help with. You’ll find that working with your dog where the behavior is happening (in your home) is the most effective way to see change. From basic obedience skills like sit, down, and stay to bad habits like jumping, stealing, and counter surfing – we’ve got you covered.  Choose one of the programs below that best fits your needs and your dog!

- Wendy K.

We found Bryony and Sandy Paws after experiencing  some trouble with our new, incredibly anxious puppy. We had been to see a number of other trainers but Bryony was unique. She listened to my concerns, visited our home, and provided practical, totally manageable (for someone new to dog training like me!) steps and strategies. I cannot say enough positive things about her and her staff.

-Christina P.

Bryony helped us tremendously with Sandy, who we adopted when she was 8 months old. By coming into our home and working with us one on one Bryony was able to give us some great pointers and helped us correct some unwanted behaviors!

-Suzanne H.

My pup was nervous and tentative when she got into class, but by the second or third session she knew Bryony and Ellen and felt comfortable with both of them. She never got rough with my dog like some trainers can do. Definitely recommended!

-Autumn C.

After weeks and weeks of looking online for a training class that not only fit my schedule but had amazing reviews. I had Ellen for 5 weeks to teach my black lab puppy, Jessie. She is absolutely amazing! She is very patient and so kind. Within 5 weeks Jessie has learned all the basics right in the comfort of our home.

-Tricia G.

Bryony and Ellen are awesome! Training class was fun, informative and a great experience all around for both me and my puppy.

-Lisa B.

We love Sandy Paws Dog Training! After a phone consultation with Bryony we chose a private training package, and it was worth every penny. Our new puppy was a handful, but after just a couple sessions with Bryony (and lots of fun practice in between) our lives got so much better, including our pup’s 🙂

-Anabda D.
