Adult Dog Training & Enrichment

Coaching you and/or training your adult dog is the goal here. By being intentional about our training, we can achieve successes that will change the course of your dog's life, and create a more enjoyable relationship between you. Training can be exciting, challenging, and enriching to your dog’s life experience.

We will begin by working with your dog in different, safe, real-life environments. Examples are: walking in town, going to the hardware store and the post office. 

Repetition is the key to developing 'default' behaviors in our dogs. Once a dog knows how to behave in one setting, we will reinforce the behavior in different locations so it becomes habit. I will coach you on the mechanics, and give you tools so you feel confident in your training fluency.

Getting Started With Your Package

We will begin our work together with a virtual consultation to discuss your areas of concern. I will make observations, and then map out the best steps forward together.

Triage / Preliminary Session

There are a couple of reasons why a single training session, offered via Zoom, may be what you need.

Triage! Oh dear, what have I done! I'm feeling overwhelmed, or an incident happened, and I need to talk to a pro, to get us back on the right path.

A Preliminary Session. You're undecided if the way I teach is right for you, so you'd like to try it out for size. Or, your budget allows for a single session purchase now, and you'll buy additional sessions later.

1 x 1 Hour Session


Get to Know Penny Locke

Thanks to a dog, I am now a trainer. Learning everything I can about what makes a dog tick, respond, act, and react makes me a better and intentional trainer. I strive for the results you dream of, one dog at a time, one day at a time. I am on the dog's side and am bold enough to tell you when things could be better. I have 2 dogs; Briar, an 8 year old Borzoi, and Hope, a 2 year old Black Labrador, who came to me as a career change year old puppy from Guide dogs. Let's change the course of your dog's life, soon!

My Approach

Knowing how dogs learn makes training easier. Learning through mentors and trainers who came before me has been invaluable in deciding what makes training successful. As your coach, I will empathize and encourage you to get the best from your individual, unique companion dog using kind, effective techniques.

We train at your dog's pace to achieve lasting results. Training your dog is a family affair that can enhance respect and build a closer bond beyond that previously experienced.

We have been working with Penny over Zoom for the past few weeks to help train our new puppy, and she has been amazing! It’s been wonderful getting advice from the comfort of our home. If you have a new furry friend, we highly recommend virtual puppy training with Penny!—Coral M.
