Pet Lovers

Private dog Training

Whether you'd like to brush up on some basic manners, tackle behavior problems or address fear and/or aggression, the Louisiana SPCA trainers can help you reach your behavior goals through force-free methods that enhance the human-animal bond and get you the results you’re looking for. We offer both In-Home and In-Shelter Private Training and Behavior Consultations where we teach you how to train your dog.

Cancellation Policy

All scheduled private lessons must be cancelled or rescheduled a minimum of 24 hours prior to the scheduled lesson time. Late cancellations and "No-Shows" will be charged the normal rate. We allow for one re-schedule only per appointment.

Private lesson packages must be completed within 8 weeks beginning on the date of the first lesson. If the lessons are not completed within this time, it will be at the discretion of the assigned trainer and the Louisiana SPCA Behavior and Training department to determine if the reason for the delay was warranted. Clients that wish to extend their end training date must submit an email statement requesting a delay, including the reason for the delay, and the proposed date to resume training. Clients must receive a reply statement from the Louisiana SPCA permitting them to extend their training date.
