To ensure the best solution and price, I believe in taking the time to meet with you and your family in your home before training begins.

To set up a free, in-home consultation, contact me. This is the first step to training a better-behaved dog.

The initial 1.5 to 2-hour session is comprised of a consultation, assessment, and hands-on training with you and your dog. This is an opportunity for me to meet you both and gain understanding of what behaviors your dog is exhibiting. My recommendations for training vary because they will be uniquely suited for your specific lifestyle and training goals.

Private In-Home Training Sessions

After the initial consult, Sarah will work with you and your dog privately in approximately 60 minute sessions. UmeMama offers single session rates or discounted rates for 3, 5, or 7 sessions. In these sessions, behaviors addressed range from puppy training, basic obedience, and mild to complex behavior issues uncluding but not limited to:
