What to Expect

Much of our Private In-Home Lessons involve us teaching you how to address certain behaviors. Lessons usually start at a table as your trainer sets up the training program and describes it to you in detail. Depending on the behavior, trainers will then teach your dog and later ask you to perform the skill.


  • $170 for an hour and a half session
  • $130 for an hour session
  • There will be a $10-15/session surcharge for locations outside of our service area.  If applicable, you will be notified of this prior to program start.

Private in-home dog training is an excellent option for individuals who live in or around the Kansas City metro area and have specific concerns or goals about their puppy or dog’s behavior. This type of dog training is offered privately in your home where your puppy or dog’s behavior occurs. One of Beyond the Dog’s experienced trainers conveniently comes to you. Most dogs enrolled engage in less serious problem behavior. Topics typically covered include house soiling, puppy biting, or simple obedience behaviors.

During the initial 1.5 hour appointment, a professional dog trainer will conduct a behavior assessment and design a treatment or obedience plan to effectively help you reach your dog training goals. During the private consultation the trainer not only works with your dog or puppy, but they ensure you are effectively using the treatment or obedience plan they designed. You are given advice, how to’s, and taught to effectively handle your own dog. At the end of the appointment you will be given a specific dog training protocol to follow to encourage successful follow through between appointments. In addition, private support is provided via phone or email free of charge.

When scheduling the initial appointment you will be given an estimate on the minimum number of lessons based on the problem behavior. That minimum number is paid for at the end of the first session. If you live in or around the Kansas City metro area and are interested in having a highly educated and experienced dog trainer come to your home contact Beyond the Dog today!

Cancellation Policy: Beyond the Dog should be notified of any changes one week prior to the scheduled appointment.

During the first 1.5 hour dog training class, a Beyond the Dog trainer led by an animal behaviorist will review the past and current behavior exhibited by your dog and design a unique treatment or obedience plan in order for your training goals to be achieved. The trainer(s) will not only work with your puppy or dog throughout the private consultation, but they will also work with you directly to ensure the treatment or obedience plan is being carried out as efficiently and effectively as possible. Every client will receive general information, advice, troubleshooting tips, as well as an integrated plan on addressing the behavior of concern. After the dog training class is completed, the trainer will then be sure to send a training protocol containing all of the information that was covered throughout the session to ensure a drastic level of improvement from one session to the next. In addition, private support is always provided if necessary via email or phone – free of charge!

Because all problem behaviors and obedience varies, so does the amount of time it may take to treat a particular behavior. When you submit a contract and begin the scheduling process, you will receive an estimate of the minimum number of dog training classes that will be held. That minimum number should be paid for at the end of your first session.
