Private In-Home Sessions

Private In-Home or Office Sessions
Performed by Lorraine May, M.A.
Executive Director of Misha May Foundation Dog Training and Rescue
Voted Best Dog Training in Denver 3 years in a row!

Lorraine May has been training for over 15 years. The rescue has always accepted the hardest dogs that no one else wanted. Lorraine has fostered and worked with just about every breed and every issue successfully over the years.

In-Your -Home Sessions: Jeffco and Denver – day, evening, weekend
Office Sessions: Lakewood - day, evening, weekend

Philosophy: Misha May employs Learning Theory which is an educational approach. We communicate with the dog clearly establishing consistent rules. We set the dog up for success so that instead of punishing him for doing something wrong, we spend our time teaching and practicing what is right. Just like an athlete practices his skills, we coach the dog until he can perform correctly on his own. Why not be kind and compassionate to your friend rather than harsh and punishing?

Number of Sessions: Typically one session is adequate to help the owner change his or her behavior and learn how to proceed with changing the dog’s behavior. Follow-up training typically happens in one of our specialty classes (Understanding Dogs, Scared and Scary) which cost $150 for 4 weeks.

Prior to the session: complete a registration so that the trainer arrives prepared and ready to work
During the session: assessment of dog and situation, training of dog, coaching of humans, development of goal oriented treatment plan, follow-up suggestions such as classes
Following the session: delivery of educational handouts, clarification of any questions, suggested continuation in our specialty classes, additional appropriate referrals

The session will address:
*Behavior: to teach the dog what he or she needs to know to replace an unwanted behavior with an acceptable behavior that gets him what he wants or needs (play, self-confidence, safety, attention, great life)
*Emotions: to help the dog develop a more positive association with his world which leads to relaxation, manners and a great life

Pricing:
Initial consult / training session / treatment plan / handouts – 1.5 hours @ $350
Follow-up treatment session – 1 hour @ $250
Package of 3 one hour follow-up treatment sessions - $600
Follow- up classes if appropriate for your dog(s) - $150 for all 4 weeks
Understanding Dogs - for almost any issue
Scared & Scary - for dogs who fear, react to, or dislike other dogs, but are okay with humans

Foster dogs from any rescue or shelter may attend our dog training classes for free. However, we do not have the resources to offer private sessions for free.

Misha May’s Obedience and Good Manners is based on behavior science with effective, force-free, positive techniques. We teach you how dogs learn and how to teach them what they need to know to be good companions.

Common cues such as sit, stay, down, wait and settle are covered, as well as tips for leash walking and ways to reinforce desirable behaviors already being offered naturally such as sitting instead of jumping. We will demonstrate training approaches such as luring, naming, verbal and hand signals, while observing and discussing canine body language - the key to understanding dogs!

Misha May Foundation was voted Best Dog Training in Denver for three years in a row because we consistently teach people how to help their dogs learn to live in the human world, while respecting the individuality of each dog and of each human / canine team.
