In-Person and Virtual Professional Coaching

Does your dog have specific behavior issues you need one-on-one assistance with? Not sure about taking a class and want professional advice? The NHSPCA professional trainers can provide a private consultation with you and your dog to get you started in the right direction and keep you on a steady path to training success.* Consultations for specific behavior problems are available by appointment.

*Currently, the NHSPCA is unable to provide private training consults to assist with behavior modification for aggressive dogs. We can assist with reactive dogs on a case-by-case basis. Please email for further assistance or resources that can assist you and your dog.*

The charge for a one-on-one private session with one of our qualified/certified trainers is $75 for an hour.

We also offer a package deal for private sessions. You can get three, one-hour sessions for $195. This is a savings of $30, making each session $65*.

We are currently offering private sessions. Please email to schedule an appointment, check availability or ask questions.

Refund & Cancellation Policy:  There is a $25 service fee for registration cancellation of a single session. *If you cancel after using one or more of your 3 session bundle you will be charged at the single session rate of $75 and the $25 cancellation fee also applies.  No refunds will be granted after six months of placing order and will result in a donation of the remainder of your fee to the NHSPCA.

  • What are your training methods?

    At NHSPCA we are dedicated to the use of positive reinforcement training to modify difficult behaviors and teach new and better behavior. Based on the science of learning theory and classical conditioning, the methods used at NHSPCA are proven effective in all species from dolphins to great apes and rats to humans. We reward behaviors we like to increase the likelihood of them occurring and manage or remove rewards for the behaviors we don’t like. The use of reward based training serves to grow the bond between you and your dog and improve communication across species.
