SINGLE DOG PACKAGES
*With the price of fuel always a concern, anyone 15 miles from the Interstate 30 & 635 (LBJ) intersection will be subject to an extra mileage charge to cover that expense.
**All NEW customers will receive a FREE 30 minute evaluation with the PURCHASE of any package or lesson.
EVALUATION: $55 for 30 minute session*
In this initial meeting Lauren prefers to meet the entire family including the dog in their home environment. In this setting she can more easily see natural interactions between family members with each other and the dog to better understand the causes of your particular concerns. Lauren will also explain her Loose Leash Logic, course of action, and any equipment recommended. This option is ideal for rescue groups that have dogs with specific issues that need a behavioral modification plan rather than for generally pleasant, but untrained dogs. There is no training offered in an evaluation.
FIND MY PERFECT PAW PAL: $95 per dog evaluation location (ie, litters of puppies or a shelter visit are examples of 1 evaluation), usually one hour necessary per dog evaluation location*
Looking to adopt a puppy or rescue dog and want to make sure the dog’s personality matches your own (or your families’)? Lauren can evaluate a dog you want to potentially adopt, and can let you know of any issues this dog may need to work through to be the perfect companion. Lauren is also gifted for matching dogs to personalities and lifestyles. For this meeting if the pup is at a breeder or shelter/rescue facility, Lauren can arrange to meet you there. If you already have a dog (or multiple dogs), she can show you how to introduce the new dog to the mix to ensure years of harmony together.

PUPPY 101: $380 for 4 sessions*
Lauren will give recommendations on equipment, food, play rules, house training and begin teaching basic training with Loose Leash Logic. Since she is training in your home, waiting until vaccinations are complete is unnecessary. You will experience the least problems with your new pup if you start training the first few days you bring him home. While you never want to take a pup from his mom before 7 weeks old at the earliest, he is already learning at 7 weeks, so don’t hesitate to start his training! If you don’t yet have a dog or are looking for advice on a companion to your existing dog, Lauren can also give recommendations of breed types based on temperaments and activity levels that will best suit the needs of your entire family. If you have questions, she has answers!

AKC CANINE GOOD CITIZEN TEST: $120 one-hour session*
To have Lauren evaluate your dog for the AKC Canine Good Citizen Test, Lauren will need to choose a dog-friendly public location in your area. Click here for information on the AKC Canine Good Citizen Test. To allow time to set up all the test scenarios, this evaluation will last one hour.
Please note: Typically Lauren comes once a week for lessons unless you need more time to practice with your dog.
Full Payment for a multiple-lesson program is due at the first meeting. Traveling Dog Trainer accepts cash, credit and debit cards for all transactions.
To eliminate Lauren’s wasted travel, half of the first lesson price is due when scheduled. The Booking Credit will be refunded if the lesson is cancelled at least two hours before the scheduled lesson.
Aggressive Dog Policy: If a dog has ever bitten a person and is 40lbs or more, Lauren will bring an assistant to ensure everyone, including the dog, stays safe during the lesson. The cost of the additional trainer is an additional $85 per lesson.
If a dog is aggressive with other dog(s) that reside together, but only one dog is needing attention, more time will still be needed to address this issue. The amount of time needed is not standard as each case is unique, so the lesson will be charged per additional half hour needed. Please contact us to best determine your situation’s needs and costs.
