IN - HOME Private Training

One-on-one sessions in your home


Some behavior issues are best addressed in one on one settings. Private training is also best for dog owners who appreciate the convenience of sessions in their home.

Good to the Bone custom tailors a training plan to help you achieve your training goals.

No matter the nature of your dog’s issues, we offer a force free approach that first does no harm. We would never recommend any methods that might cause stress to your dog or potentially worsen fear and anxiety.

Our goal is to help you achieve a better quality of life for you and your dog using scientific behavior modification techniques that yield the most efficient results.


We can help you with
many behavior issues, but
here is a list of some of the
most common challenges
facing dog owners:

  • New Puppy Training

  • Basic Obedience Training

  • Preparing Your Dog for New Baby

  • Excessive Barking

Wendy is an excellent trainer. We signed up for private training sessions to help our dog (Deefer) with some leash reactivity and reliable recall issues. We’ve had two so far and have really noticed an improvement in Deefer, as well as a marked improvement in our own knowledge about how best to equip both Deefer and ourselves for success.

The first lesson was in our home, where Wendy got to know both us and our pup, and practiced some loose leash walking and recall. Deefer was instantly into her and responded really well to the session. Wendy answered all our questions and helped us realize how best to improve.

For our second lesson, we went outside and practiced loose leash walking in the “real world” and worked on reactivity issues. Wendy used her fake dog to help Deefer practice how to react when he sees a dog on the street. It might not sound like a lot but it was such a good starting point for us to learn how to help Deefer react appropriately - the fake dog is very legit looking and Deefer was really fooled by it. We also practiced with dogs we came upon on the street but even working with the fake dog was really instructive. For the last 15 minutes or so of our session, we practiced reliable recall and more loose leash walking.

We’ve noticed a big improvement in Deefer already, but where Wendy excels is in helping you improve your own training skills. We know now how to equip Deefer for success in all situations and how to temper our own expectations of him. Wendy’s really great with our dog, very positive and friendly, and posts pics of him on instagram (which is always a nice bonus). We also really appreciated her flexibility in terms of scheduling the next appointment. She recommended us to work on our own with Deefer for a little bit and schedule something when we are ready so we can check in with her.
