Private Training with Ana Melara, CPDT-KA

Private training is a great option to tackle difficult behavioral problems. Ana can help dogs from a breeder or rescue, new puppies or older dogs on everything from setting a strong foundation to preventing unwanted behaviors. All sessions can be in-person or virtual, anywhere across the world. Please click here to get started.



Always Gentle, Always Kind

When you come to us for training, you and your dogs will always be treated with great kindness and respect. Training will be fun. We do not believe in using intimidation, pain or threats. We promise you that we will never use harsh corrections, a choke chain, a pinch or a shock collar on your dog, ever. If your dog is exhibiting fear, resource guarding, aggression towards people, aggression towards other dogs or other animals, separation anxiety, not coming when called or other challenging behaviors, let’s talk.


Let’s Get Started

Please fill out the following Private session Registration Form. Soon your dog training challenges will be behind you. Once you get started with a training package, you will have access to our online community and weekly group Zoom dog training sessions for the duration of your package. Benefit forever by re-visiting our sessions that are recorded just for you.

We make Training Packages that work with your schedule. You can train in person, on Zoom or both. We make it easy.


Initial Training Session

Your first step will be to fill out our detailed questionnaire. Once we have reviewed it, we will start with a 90-minute initial session for assessment and training. We will then create a training plan and agree on a training package to fit your needs and budget. Whether you see Ana for training in person or remotely, we ask that you send video of your training practice sessions at home. You will also have access to Ana and her training team via text and email for support in between our virtual Zoom sessions or in person learning.

Ana has helped me understand the intricacies of body language (both mine and Chance’s), and she has shown me how to anticipate situations before they occur and how to defuse some of Chance’s reactions before they escalate out of control.
