Thank you for your interest in training with The Tail Haven!

In the midst of this new COVID-19 era we are thrilled to see so many members of our community taking this time to love on those closest to them . . . especially all of those new 4 legged fury family members!

I know this also means there are many of you out there needing help!  Fear not . . . while there are many things we can’t really do right now, training your dog is not one of them!  This is actually an amazing opportunity for many families to catch up on training that has been neglected, or simply get off to a great start with all those adorable (and mischievous) new pups we KNOW you are bringing home in the midst of this pandemic.

While I am not offering any in-person group classes at this time (don’t worry – group classes are never ideal anyway), I am VERY excited to step back into my roots as a professional dog trainer and offer my services and support to those of you needing help through the following options:

  • Private 1 on 1 Video Consulting
  • Private socially-distanced in-home consulting and training (service limited to local residents)
  • Custom Board & Train Services – just let me know what’s going on and we can discuss your options!
  • Behavior Modification Packages

To get started, please take a few minutes to fill out the training request form below, and let me know a little bit about your family, your pup, your training questions, and the best way to reach you!
