HOW DOES IT WORK?
Depending on what you need, you'll either book a consultation or fill out a training form.
The consultation will give us time to learn about what's going on and come up with a plan- then get to work!
Depending on your training plan, you might do virtual, in-person, or a mix of both!
Virtual: $95 /hr
In-person: $125 /hr
Need financial assistance? Just ask!
We'll work to get you the support you need. Please bear in mind that our trainers have different skill sets, availability, and service areas- so we'll always work as a team to help you and your dog. And if we aren't the right fit, we'll help get you referrals.
All of our trainers use positive reinforcement and rewards-based methods. This is based on the most up-to-date behavior science!
We're also dedicated to supporting you, the humans, not just the dogs!
Helping you and your dog succeed.
Whether you're training a new puppy or trying to solve behavior issues, our team is here. We can help with:
puppy training (potty training, mouthing, etc)
coming when called
greeting people politely
aggression or reactivity
fear or anxiety

Why train with Every Dog?
Our trainers use positive reinforcement methods and are dedicated to using the most modern, effective, and ethical training methods to help you and your dog. Our trainers are certified and do continuing education with conferences, workshops, and mentorships to make sure they stay on top of their game.
Where do private lessons take place?
We usually start with a virtual consultation, and can work with you virtually or in-person after that. In-person sessions are usually at your home, but can also happen at a meeting point (like a park) or at one of our training locations. Ask your trainer what would be best!
How many dog training sessions do I need?
It totally depends on the behaviors we're working on, how much time you have to practice in between sessions, etc. Most training takes time, and we don't set specific timelines because we want to give you the best help.
My dog is aggressive/ anxious/ nervous. Can you help?
Yep! A lot of the dogs we work with are struggling with some kind of behavior issue. Our behavior consultants will work with you and your dog to help them feel safe and shift their behaviors.
Do you use prong collars, shock collars, or choke collars?
No. We don't find that they're useful, and they can negatively impact our training plans. But if you've been using one, don't panic- you're not alone, and we're still happy to help you find solutions that work.
What areas of Austin do you work in?
Our trainers and behavior consultants are across Austin. While we cover most of the general Austin area, we will offer virtual options or ask to meet part way if you're outside our service area.
Can you teach my dog not to pull on leash, potty in the house, or jump on people?
Yes! We love working on overcoming these annoying, frustrating behaviors- all through teaching your dog new ways to succeed. It's FUN and we're happy to help train your dog!
Can I skip the virtual consultation?
We require a virtual consultation for a few reasons. First, it helps keep everyone safe! Second, most of our time in the consult is spent talking about your dog's history, current behavior, etc. So it's more effective virtually! Online training is an incredibly effective tool, whether for one session or for all of them.
