Some dogs need a little extra guidance from a handler that is familiar and comfortable working around distractions. One-on-one lessons mix-up work with play, to give the dog a break from intensive training. One-on-one training is meant to occur at least two times/week. The owner is briefed and shown the techniques his dog is learning weekly. Frequent dog participants have been: puppies whose families work during the day. Reactive dogs, who need to get exposed, safely, and frequently to triggers in order to counter condition and desensitize the dog to those triggers. Dogs in need of confidence building through training and games. Dogs, whose owners are older and unable to repeat training techniques frequently enough for the dog to learn the techniques. And finally, one-on-one dog agility to help keep the dog mentally stimulated throughout a busy work week.
