Private Consultations

Come, sit, stay, learn – and take a break from your day on the Metro Dog couch. Tell one of our trainers your concerns, and s/he will work with you to devise specific goals and a personal coaching plan to meet those goals. You and your pet will both enjoy and feel the deep satisfaction and connection that naturally accompanies growth.

Our trainers specialize in helping you develop a healthy and harmonious relationship with your canine companion. Their holistic approach examines the whole dog and his environment, utilizing positive techniques and employing a canine-centered approach to assessing and problem solving for behavior dilemmas.

It is our goal to have you leave feeling empowered with understanding and a new set of tools to use to move towards the goals you have created together. After just one visit, you will be well on your way to a fulfilling new level in your relationship with your faithful furry companion.
