Day Training

Question - Do you wish you had a whole team helping to train your dog?
Answer - I’m ready to join your team.

Even with the best of intentions, our dogs learn more quickly and become more fluent
in their skills through practice & applying Positive Reinforcement methods, with no risk
of fall-out.

This service is called Day Training. I come to your home, borrow your dog, and work
with them there, or in your neighborhood, or on an hour-long field trip to somewhere

It’s a fun & productive break in their day, concentrated 1-2-1 training time with me, and
your dog becomes more proficient and easier for you to work with going forward.

We start with the in-person Get-To-Know-Each-Other session, where I befriend your dog. You can see how I train, and we can determine if we are a match. You then choose & pay for a
4-Session or an 8-Session package. Then, armed with supplies of your dog’s favorite
‘currency’ (what they will work for), we take on the learning & enrichment time.

Photos, videos & direct feedback will keep you in the loop. Let the teamwork begin!

After purchasing your session(s), please fill out the Release Form below and email a signed
version to [email protected]. Upon submitting your signed & dated Release form, we will schedule your first training 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.

Thanks to our early work with Penny, we have the happiest, friendly, well socialized dog around. People often comment on his behavior because he’s so full of energy, and yet, clearly under voice control and intensely obedient and happy!—Benjamin B.
