Private consultations

You may feel you need some private help with training in addition to, or instead of, group classes. Private sessions can address a broad range of training needs, but are particularly useful in resolving problems which, because of their nature or complexity, cannot be easily handled in a class situation.

The following certified instructors offer paid private consultations under their own auspices, not as part of CBS:

Alternatively, the RSPCA force-free trainers list has contact information for other trainers who provide private consultations.


Sometimes behaviour has a medical and/or neurological cause rather than a training or environmental cause. In these cases, our instructors may recommend that you see a behaviour veterinarian - one who has undertaken additional extensive study in the neuroscience of behaviour - instead of, or in addition to, a certified dog trainer.
