In-home sessions are available after evaluation and initial sessions occur in controlled environments. 

Locations that require more than 10 miles of travel will incur an additional fee of $.60/mile.

Private lessons allow us to target the skills that are important to you. We are happy to cover any number of issues that dog owners experience from jumping on guests and excessive barking, to working towards a reliable off-leash recall or a down-stay. Private lessons are generally run on a weekly basis, giving the owner time to apply what they’ve learned in the sessions in the home environment. Once we have conducted our initial sessions at Play Dog Play, we can move our training to the environments where we need it to be reliable—most frequently this means in-home sessions, or working in public parks.

All new clients start with the 5-session package where a trainer will work 1-on-1 with you and your dog before moving to the $75/per session pricing. Sessions typically last between 1-1.5 hours.

5-Session Training Package - $799 (basic training gear included in price)

$100 per session after initial price

60-90 minute sessions

We appreciate Ross’s teaching style. He gets to know his clients by asking simple questions, is very perceptive and picks up on the little things, remembers them, and meets both the human and the pup where they are at.

Ross has been amazing as he has taught us how to adapt to the daily changes [of our silly and LARGE Bernese Mountain puppy] because he EXPLAINS EVERYTHING in a way that each of us can understand.


I cannot recommend Ross enough - he is an incredible dog trainer who truly cares about his clients and their furry companions. His patience, kindness, and expertise have worked wonders with my reactive (show is also very sweet) dog, and I have seen such a remarkable improvement in her behavior thanks to Ross' guidance and support. He has a way of connecting with dogs that is truly special, and I am so grateful to have found him. If you are looking for a skilled and compassionate dog trainer, look no further than Ross - he is simply the best!
