Private lessons focus on problem behaviors, structure, obedience, and growth, and tackle specific issues in the home that group lessons just can’t cover. These lessons take place in your home or at the location of your choice, wherever your canine pal needs the most training. Additionally, private lessons offer you one on one time with our highly skilled Instructor/Master Trainer Karin Wagemann, where you can ask any and all questions on your time.
Almost any topic can be covered in private lessons. Those wanting to persue Service Dog Training, Detection, Tracking, or Protection training are highly encouraged to contact Nine Realms as this is what we specialize in. Nine Realms does not deal with aggression towards people, fighting pack mates, or severe anxiety. We recomend you contact Method K9 for that.
Private lessons are limited and booked out generally two weeks in advance.
If you refer a friend and they sign up for lessons, get $10 off your lesson and your friend’s lesson (or $10 mailed to you if not a current client). Only applies if I can directly confirm the referal between the two parties and the new client signs up and pays for lessons.
Before any training can begin clients should email (preferred) for a brief consultation. During the brief consultation we will discuss the issues you are having with your dog, what you have done to solve the problem, your goals for training, and a set up a time for training. An in home consultaion/first lesson will be discussed after this initial discussion.
The first private lesson includes an in home consultation and training session.
$125/hr. Includes an initial consultation of your dog’s behaviors, issues, and needs. Email, text, and phone support, and an email overview of the lesson(s) is also included.

Please note that not all lessons will be exactly an hour in length. Training is based upon goals not time. Some lessons may be shorter if goals are accomplishedearlier. Some lessons may run later. There is a fee for lessons that run later than 15 min (the Trainer’s time is valuable, limited, and tightly scheduled).

Clients are responsible for scheduling all of their purchased lessons with a five-month time period after purchasing lessons. It is not the Trainer’s responsibility to contact the client and schedule lessons.
