getting started with

virtual private training

Work with a trainer one on one to develop obedience skills and manners

What you can expect:

Private sessions can be held over video or phone. All family members (including children) are encouraged to participate. All sessions last 60 minutes. This initial session serves as an orientation where we will review:

  • equipment use and recommendations
  • allows the trainer to observe your dog to develop a training plan
  • provides you with foundation skills to get you immediately working towards your training goals

You can schedule as many sessions as you want; however, training your dog is not a quick process and will take some time and commitment from you. A recommendation will be made outlining how many sessions it may take to achieve your training goals.

What's included:

Private sessions include a personalized training goal for you, continued email support, and Spot On Training articles and handouts.

How much does it cost?

  • Private training session $90

Dear Spot on dog training family,

It is with gratitude for the many years of being able to help dogs in the DMV, but also sadness that we will no longer be able to do so in the same capacity as always, that I write to inform you that on September 1, 2021, Spot on dog training will be closing in Washington, D.C.

Similar to many other businesses, the challenges presented by adapting our training services to COVID-19 has been difficult and after fits and starts of reopening, continuing pandemic related issues have prevented us from finding qualified and highly skilled dog trainers to serve your training needs.

As a result, we will be closing ALL in person dog training including group classes, workshops and private lessons. We will remain open for separation anxiety and isolation disorder training, as well as virtual training option for potty/crate training and emergency recall.

You have my sincere gratitude for your business and for allowing us the opportunity to be a part of your family, and please keep us in mind for future referrals and positive reviews of our services. Please continue to refer us to your friends with dogs in need of help with alone time issues and potty training.

It was our sincere effort to offer excellent customer service to our clients, and we hope we were successful in our endeavors. We thank you for believing in us and sticking with us since 2009.
