Fees & Enrollment


Enrollment Form


Behavior History


Fees for Private Obedience Training/Behavioral Counseling


45 minute session: $65

Or you may purchase a package of 4 sessions for $240

There is no extra charge for additional dogs in the same family/household.


Travel fee

My area is within northwest/central San Antonio.  If you live outside a 15 mile radius of the intersection of NW Military and Wurzbach Parkway there will be a $10 per session travel fee.


* What's included:  You're paying for more than just face time!  Fees also cover time spent developing your individual training plans and follow up email reviews of each session with homework guidance and whatever written handouts are indicated for working with your dog.  In addition I'm available to answer any questions or concerns you may have as long as we're training your dog.


*Military Special - Thank you for your service!  One free email consult about any dog behavior question or problem you may have.



I am now semi-retired and only see a limited number of clients.  If I am not able to work with you I will try to refer you to another trainer.

Appointment Scheduling:  Sometimes it may only take one session to show you how to address a specific behavior problem.  However, basic obedience/manners training usually requires a minimum of 4 sessions.  There are times that your schedule or mine may require some flexibility in appointment times, but it is generally best to schedule your four appointments once a week or every other week until they are completed.

Getting started: Please fill out the Enrollment Form and Behavior History/Questionnaire (below) and after you email those back to me, I will contact you to arrange an appointment.  Doing this prior to our first appointment saves you time and money since I will not have to spend the better part of our first session together gathering the necessary information about your dog.  On the first (private session) visit, we will review your behavior form and discuss training goals.  I will also do an initial evaluation of your dog and we will begin some training exercises.
