Private Training
  • We TRAIN your dog for you OR
  • We COACH you training your dog in Obedience or Agility
If a class setting isn’t for you or you simply do not have the time but want results with agility, obedience or behavior issues, PRIVATE TRAINING is your answer!  We have options!  We come to your house or you can drop your dog off at our Salida location. For private one on one sessions, we spend one hour sessions with your dog (or with you and your dog if you prefer private coaching) working on your goals. We proof for distraction and use real-life trials in key environments, providing you with a professionally trained dog!

Laura Bussing has been training dogs for 30 years and is the Head Trainer at Gone to the Dogs
First, an initial evaluation of your dog is required.  We will determine what training your dog needs, discuss your goals, understand our roles, and expectations. We will set a training plan based on your goals and a realistic time-table. Some behavior modifications will take 4-6 weeks, working with your dog 3 times/week.  Private Obedience training is recommended a minimum of 3 days a week depending upon goals. We expertly handle all obedience and behavior issues using proven science-based, positive reward training. We work at our facility or at your home, depending upon the issue.

We do sessions with the owner to teach you the mechanics, step by step, of what we have been doing with your dog. We answer your questions and transfer the dog’s new behaviors to you, as a handler. Follow-up sessions may me necessary to make sure that all is going well and to answer any questions.
