If you are curious how our clients experience our one-on-one lessons, take a look at our testimonials page, then look for ‘private training’ or ‘one-on-one training’.
One of the advantage of private sessions is that you can pick a practical spot together with your trainer. This can be a quiet market square or a little enclosure in your neighbourhood, or at the local park or even in your own garden.
The private sessions are scheduled during daytime:
Here are some examples of common training goals:
Like all other OhMyDog! services, the one-on-one dog training sessions follow evidence-based guidelines and dog-friendly methods. This means that we never use pain, compulsion, fear or intimidation.
You discuss your priorities with the trainer, and we take into account your dog’s temperament, your routine, and other relevant aspects to help you get started with practice, together with your dog, as soon as possible.
Several options are possible:
After a practical explanation, you start practising under our guidance. We then guide you on the following aspects (among others):
We make sure your lessons take place in a relaxed and playful atmosphere, while always keeping an eye on progress and results; adapting our advice as need be.
Are your goals long-term in nature? We will tell you this straight. Our goal: Giving you the necessary tools to keep training independently from us.
You are ultimately responsible for following our management and training advice between lessons, but our regular appointments will give you the push and structure you need to make progress.
The behaviourist may recommend private lessons to guide you through the first steps of applying the advice in your behaviour plan, so that you get a solid start on your behaviour modification project.
The trainer can bring specialist material with them, like (convincing) fake dogs. The trainer can also act as a (controlled) trigger for your dog (e.g. jogger or skateboards). This way, we can reproduce the problem situation in a responsible way, to give your dog a safe and controlled learning environment. The behaviourist and trainer stay in touch with each other throughout the training plan.
Private sessions are given by one of OhMyDog’s owners:
