Agility training is great for building self esteem, especially in rescue and shelter dogs. Canine agility is training your dog to negotiate an obstacle course. It’s packed full of fun and enjoyment for both the pet as well as the owner. Agility is a wonderful way for people to experience another side of their relationship with their dogs and to improve their dog’s confidence, skill levels, and self image.

Home Sessions

The purpose of these training sessions is to observe and train the dog in his or her natural environment. If the issue that the dog is having is with people or pets in his or her own environment, then it is important to have the people or pets available during training. Videos of your home session are available for purchase.

When setting up home sessions we encourage the whole family, friends, neighbors to attend. People who are in the dog’s life on a regular basis will need to be on the same page when it comes to changing the dog’s thought process.

Private Sessions

The purpose of these training sessions is to get one on one training focusing on specific issues and needs.
*LaBest also offers phone consultations for those who need behavioral counseling for their pets.
