Private Dog Training
In addition to our robust Dog Training Classes, East Bay SPCA also offers Private Sessions. In these sessions, one of our trainers will observe and work closely with you and your dog, and make recommendations for training and management plans.
Private training sessions are available online via Zoom during Shelter in Place.

- Discussion of management techniques to prevent escalation of behavior.
- Discussion of equipment and tools needed for both training and management.
- Discussion of triggers, thresholds, learning theory, and body language.
- Implementing at least one training technique to help modify the main behavior concern.
- Discussion of how many additional sessions the client may need to address the behavior concern(s)
Additional Sessions Include
- Troubleshooting issues at home and follow-up regarding the training assigned during the first session.
