We encourage In-Home Private Lessons for those whose pet is too nervous, aggressive, or energetic for a group class situation, for solving household or behavioral problems, for persons who desire a customized lesson plan, for persons who desire an accelerated lesson plan, for those who prefer a more flexible schedule than we can provide in group class, or for individuals who prefer the intimacy or convenience of one-on-one instruction.
We also provide Remote Private Instruction for those who wish to address problems or achieve obedience or behavioral goals at multiple venues, including veterinary clinics, dog parks, indoor locations, or diverse outdoor rural, suburban, or urban areas.
Staff Trainer rate:
$100 per hour lesson-by-lesson, with a $100 per hour travel charge for the time required for the trainer to arrive at your residence.* By appointment. The travel time for most areas of Eugene is between 10 to 25 minutes, provided the appointment is scheduled during a low to moderate traffic period.
$740 for a discounted 8-hour package of lessons plus travel. The package provides a $60 discount versus purchasing the same quantity of instruction lesson-by-lesson.
Head Trainer rate:
$160 per hour lesson-by-lesson, with a $160 per hour travel charge for the time required to arrive at your residence.* By appointment.
Please note that although Head Trainer prices are higher than those indicated for Staff Trainers, with the issues and circumstances listed above, Head Trainer instruction will often result in lower overall expenses and superior overall value, as Head Trainers are more likely to achieve goal level outcomes and to require fewer meetings and less time to achieve desired outcomes.

“In-Home lessons helped us to housebreak Rocky. Group Class helped us to expand Rocky’s obedience skills, and socialize him around people and dogs. And when we go on vacation we take advantage of CPT’s outstanding Boarding Training program, CPT’s programs have made Rocky a superb pet. Definitely sign up your dog!”
