Are you constantly rushing between work, family commitments, grocery shopping, and volunteering, while your dog waits at home?
Does there never seem to be enough time in the day for training?
Latchkey training is for you!
What is latchkey training?
We begin with an initial in-home consultation to meet you and your pets, introduce you and your dog to our training techniques, and develop a personalized training program. After the consult, your trainer will come to your home and train your dog for you for several lessons. You do not need to be present, so this is perfect for busy professionals or for stay at home parents with their hands full.
You are welcome to watch if you want to, but during latchkey sessions we focus exclusively on your dog, not teaching you how to train. For hands-on learning please consider our in-home manners lessons.
You will receive access to a private blog with pictures and session reports to update you on your dog’s progress* , and you will attend one coaching session per three latchkey sessions so that you can learn how to use your dog’s new skills.
*Leash walking-only students will not receive a blog; for your dog’s safety we keep our hands on the leash, not a camera! Instead you will receive email updates.
Why choose latchkey training?
We train while you are out! You will literally come home to a better behaved dog. You can choose daytime, evening, or weekend appointments based on your schedule.
Our excellent training skills have been developed over years of experience with hundreds of dogs, training many different breeds and personalities to competition level behavior. We are able to quickly assess your dog, select the best training techniques for him, and get the job done.
We maintain your key & home access information in a secure location and check in through phone, email or text when we arrive and leave. Our business is owner operated and your home, belongings and pets will always be secure with us. As an extra layer of protection, we are also insured and bonded.
What will my dog learn?
Latchkey sessions are best for teaching obedience skills and basic manners or solving specific, technically difficult problems like nail trimming or food bowl guarding. We are happy to talk with you and assess whether your dog is a good candidate for latchkey work.
