PRIVATE VS. PRACTICE

PLEASE CONSIDER CAREFULLY WHETHER YOU NEED A PRIVATE LESSON TO WORK ON A SPECIFIC ISSUE OR WHETHER YOU JUST NEED TO PRACTICE!  Private lessons are intended to provide you with guidance on how to solve specific issues you are having  or will be facing.  For example you may wish to book private lessons:

  •  IF YOU ARE JUST STARTING..  and you can't get to an intro workshop, you can book private lessons to get started.

  • IF YOU ARE MOVING UP A LEVEL YOU MAY BOOK PRIVATE LESSONS TO WORK ON MULTIPLE RATS, MORE COMPLEX FINDS ETC. 

  •  IF YOU ARE STARTING AT MASTER LEVEL YOU MAY decide to  BOOK PRIVATE LESSONS TO WORK ON reading your dog when he/she has FOUND ALL THE RATS or encouraging your dog to work independently.

  •  IF you wish to work on improving indicators, systematic searching, control in the ring, or tunnels a private less on can help.

The more specific you are about the problem you are having or what you wish to work on, the easier it will be to set up your lesson.

IF you are not sure and need to figure out what you need to work on please attend a practice session at your level!

PRIVATE LESSONS RULES:  ($35 per half hour )

  • Are first come first served.  ***I reserve the right to prioritize clients based on needs, and may cancel a booking based on this.***

  • Bookings must be made at least 24 hours in advance.

  • The schedule will be  updated periodically please  keep an eye on the calendar.  Please consider others, there are limited numbers of lessons and lots of people interested in training.

  • YOU MUST let me know what you wish to work on, what level you are at .. specifics please .. no generalities eg. motivation.  This helps me design a  lesson for you and makes better use of your time.
