Private Training

COVID-19 Update.  In an effort to reduce contact, I am offering online training sessions in place of entering clients’ homes. These are best to work on behaviors that occur in your home and are COVID-safe.  If you need additional help with outside behaviors, I offer in-person outside sessions as well (socially distanced and with masks).  No need to put off getting a handle on your dog’s behavior – we can get to work today!

Lockdown Consult – $150+tax.    Click to Purchase

Have a couple saved up questions that you’d like to get answered by a professional dog trainer?  This one time, 75-min session gives us the time together to get your questions answered.  We can meet over the phone or video call, so that I can see your dog as well! Many experienced dog owners find themselves with a perplexing behavior in their new or current dog – we’re here to help!  You’ll leave with a plan for management as well as steps to set you on the right path towards changing/improving this behavior in your dog.  “See” you soon!

Finally have the time to work on your dog’s training? Why not come out of quarantine with your dog having some new skills under his belt? I’ll teach you and your dog the skills to live together peacefully and will observe you working with your dog in real time to provide instant feedback. This package is also great if you have a newly adopted dog or a new puppy and are looking to help your new addition acclimate to your home and be a great family dog.

This program includes 4 total training sessions:
1 Initial Training Session (75-min) & 30-min Follow Up Session (same week)

What Our Customers Are Saying

Sandy Paws has been unbelievably wonderful and has not only helped our dog stay fit and happy but also help with her leash aggression too! We would be lost without Sandy Paws and are so lucky to have found them!”

- Bryce B.

I highly recommend Sandy Paws to other pet owners. Bryony truly loves animals and has a passion for what she does!

- Rebecca M.

We are very thankful for the love and kindness that Sandy Paws has shown. They are dependable and…I highly recommend Sandy Paws.

- 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.
