Lucy - mixed-breed dog

We have flexible, affordable and convenient packages.

What sets Leash & Hand apart from other dog training services is that I offer a variety of services tailored to you.  Classes are customized to your schedule, booked at your convenience, and you have 8 weeks in which to complete the four sessions. Classes are so affordable because they are here, in the barn.  However,  I also offer single and 4-session classes in the privacy of your home.

 All classes are 45 minutes in length and any class can be modified to better suit your goals

Puppy Head Start: $140

  • Specific to puppies ages 8 weeks to 6 months, you’ll learn how to safely and properly socialize your puppy, crate and house train, manage teething, as well as receiving Patrica McConnell’s book, The Puppy Primer and Jane Killion’s booklet, Puppy Fitness that Fits the Puppy.

Marvelous Manners: $140

  • These are the fundamental, core behaviors every dog should know: sit, watch, down, and come.  Even if your dog never learns another behavior, you will have a companion who can be cued to sit instead of jumping up on people, cued to watch instead of barking at other dogs, and cued to lay down instead of begging at the table.

Marvelous Manners, Intermediate: $140

  • These behaviors take the fundamentals one step further. In these classes, you’ll learn to teach your dog that good things come to those who wait, sit-stay, and down-stay.  We’ll also introduce mat work, leave it, as well as walking nicely on leash.

Rascals & Rowdies: $140

  • Does your dog counter surf, jump on guests, run off with the remote, and embarrass you with his naughty behavior? Then this is the class for you!  You’ll learn how to manage those unwanted behaviors while training the ones you’d prefer.  Inside that rowdy rascal is a Good Dog… barking to get out!

AKC Canine Good Citizen Prep: $175

  • Specific to clients who are interested in mastering a set of ten basic skills set by the American Kennel Club* which help instill confidence and good manners in and out of your home. Five sessions with test.

Trail Walk: $35

  • Join me and one of my dogs (weather permitting) each Saturday morning for fresh air, exercise, and fun. This is a great opportunity to practice all the skills you’ve learned by applying them in real-world situations.  Please call to book your spot and learn where we will be walking.  Group size is limited to 3 dog/handler teams. Your pup must have successfully mastered skills and behaviors in Marvelous Manners Intermediate to attend.
