Private Sessions

Private Sessions


HRA is currently offering in-person training sessions and virtual training session using the Zoom meeting platform. You can learn more about our private trainers and register for in-person and virtual sessions by clicking on the individual private trainer links below. 

Working one-on-one with one of the HRA’s trainers will allow you and your dog or cat to accomplish your goals more quickly because the session is custom-designed to fit your individual needs. Private sessions are also a good starting place when dealing with any type of aggression.

HRA has partnered with several of the area’s most trusted and highly skilled trainers to provide private training sessions. HRA trainers are highly experienced, skilled, and educated in working with dogs and cats from a variety of breed and behavioral backgrounds.  We also understand that training is as much about the person as the animal, and our trainers provide excellent instruction and support. We can help you address any of the following issues including:

  • Obedience and tricks training
  • House training, litter box issues, and good manners inside and outside the home
  • Preparation for a new baby or other life change
  • Unpleasant or unmanageable behavior toward other animals in specific situations
  • Unpleasant or unmanageable behavior toward people in specific situations
  • Fear and shyness

By registering through HRA a portion of the proceeds will go towards supporting our programs and services.
