Private lessons

Hopeful Paws currently offers private, in-home lessons which allows us to tailor each session your unique requirements. For new clients, we spend a 60-90 minute consultation together addressing questions you might have, identifying areas for improvement and also the basics of creating a manageable environment for you and your dog. We typically cover house breaking, proper equipment, and basic manners in the first session.

We also train in dog friendly places such as farmer’s markets, farm & garden stores, veterinary offices, etc.
