Please note: Due to the number of group classes I teach, my private training schedule is limited and may fill up months in advance. If you would like to get started with training sooner than I am available, here is a list of recommend trainers and behavior consultants in the area that use science-based, humane training methods:

Clients needing assistance with their dog's behavior issues such as separation anxiety, aggression, reactivity, fear, compulsive behavior, etc. will want to sign up for this two-hour behavior consultation (one-hour consultations are best for follow-ups or basic training). If time allows, behavior issues of multiple dogs in the household can be addressed during the same consultation with no additional fee.

The goal of this two-hour consultation is to provide the client with a detailed assessment of the dog's behavior and a behavior modification and training plan for the client to follow. If time allows, the session may also include demonstration and explanation of skills for the dog to learn to work with the behavior plan. Or, some clients may choose to work on specific skills in optional one-hour follow-up consultations. Follow-up sessions generally include a discussion of progress made and then hands-on training.

Clients have the option of emailing or texting video of their dog's behavior for Skye to view before the session if desired. However, it is not necessary for Skye to view the behavior before the session.

LOCATION

Training sessions are only available at Skye's Dog Training facility in West Jordan (or virtually through Zoom). In-home training is not available.

Clients who have taken group classes or an initial two-hour private training session are welcome to sign up for a one-hour follow-up session.

Clients needing guidance on a few basic training and manners issues (such as house training, chewing, food stealing, polite greetings, teaching stay, come when called, etc.) or an evaluation of their dog for potential service or therapy work will likely find a one-hour consultation sufficient to address their concerns.

Clients who would like to address issues such as aggression, fear, reactivity, resource guarding, or separation anxiety will need to schedule a two-hour consultation (please see 2 Hour Behavior Consultation tab for availability and details) as a 1 hour session will not be enough time to effectively evaluate the situation and come up with a detailed behavior modification plan.

Depending on the goals and needs of the client, consultations may include a discussion of training goals and the dog's current skills or issues, explanation of methods to curb unwanted behavior, demonstration of training techniques and/or hands-on training with the dog.

LOCATION

Training sessions are only available at Skye's Dog Training facility in West Jordan (or virtually through Zoom). In-home training is not available.

Skye's Dog Training offers evaluations for potential service, therapy or facility dogs. Evaluations are one hour and include a detailed analysis of the dog's temperament, behavior and current skills along with answers to questions clients may have about training programs and the next steps in the training process. Evaluations are held at Skye's Dog Training facility in West Jordan.

Evaluations of potential working dogs are optional. Clients may begin the training program with a dog that has not been evaluated. However, dogs that show aggression in group classes may be dismissed from class with no refund, so clients should be aware of the dog’s temperament with strangers and other dogs before beginning group training.

Dogs considered for service, therapy or facility work should be confident and non-reactive and non-aggressive towards all people, including unfamiliar adults and children, and dogs. Clients who have a dog that may be suitable for this type of training might choose to start with one of these options: 1) one-hour evaluation of the dog at Skye's Dog Training in West Jordan, 2) initial two-hour consultation/training session to address specific behavior issues, skills, problems and questions or 3) group training class program. If clients choose to start in the group training program, it is generally recommended to start in the Beginning Pet Manners class.
