Thank you for your interest in working with dogEvolve!  We offer Private Training in Oakland for a variety of behavior issues.  A trainer will come to your home or designated location to assess the behavior you are concerned about and begin teaching you and your dog how to accomplish the training desired.  Private Training Lessons allow for a more customized approach, timing and location for training with you and your dog!
