Private Sessions

Not everyone has a dog that’s at ease attending group classes, suited to participate in drop-in programs, or comfortable in a board and train environment. Alternately, as an owner, you might realize that you learn best by having one-on-one coaching and support from a skilled Dream Dogs trainer. If any of this rings true, private sessions might be the perfect fit.

We offer private sessions at our Dream Dogs Indio facility or in the comfort of your own home. They’re particularly well-suited for dogs with behavioral issues that require more focused, individualized attention. They’re also really great for people with busy schedules, since you choose the time and place that works for you.

“Murphy (The Terrorist) forgot to tell you about his “personal trainer”. Lori of “Dream Dogs” has created miracles- well minor miracles, but consider the subject. Not sure who is trained, but Murphy sits, lies down, speaks, begs, marks (goes to a specified area or blanket and stays), heels, etc. on hand or voice commands. She is fantastic. She worked with animals at The Living Desert and on movie and TV sets. She amazed me! Murphy loves her- but really pays attention. A MIRACLE!!!!!!!!”
— Andrea & Murphy
