In-Home Dog Training For Better Results

If you are having trouble finding time to train your dog, I’ll come to you and provide practical training solutions that will work with your busy schedule.

In-home training is the easiest, most effective way to train your dog to respond in everyday life situations. Together, we will put your dog on the fast track to good behavior.

In-home dog training allows me to focus on your dog's specific needs and tailor a training program that works best for you and your dog. I can observe your dog in his own environment, identify specific behavior triggers, and provide targeted training solutions that are much more effective than group lessons.

My private lessons are also far more convenient for busy families or working professionals. You don't have to worry about commuting to a class or taking time off from work to attend. I can come to your home at a time that works best for you and your family. This saves you time and makes the training process much easier for you and your dog.

Last, but certainly not least, in-home training allows for better results. Dogs feel more relaxed and comfortable in their own home, which can lead to more positive training outcomes. It also allows me to train your dog in real-life situations, such as when guests come over or during daily walks, which is difficult to replicate in a classroom setting. With in-home training, you'll quickly see real progress and positive changes in your dog's behavior.

The Benefits of In-Home Training

In-home dog training offers a variety of benefits for both dogs and their owners. Experience the difference that personalized, one-on-one attention can make in your dog's behavior with Second Chance Dog Training's private in-home lessons.


Flexible Scheduling

Many people are too busy to travel to a training class. I come to your home at a time that is convenient for you. Day, evening and weekend appointments are available. My private training lessons and behavior modification programs are offered throughout Northern New Jersey.


Personalized Attention

People and their dogs sometimes struggle in a group class because the pace is too fast, too slow, or the environment is too distracting to concentrate. You can accelerate your success by getting personalized attention in a quiet, familiar setting.


Practical Training

While at your home, I can see the real-life situations that arise and show you how to train your dog to respond the way you’d like. It makes sense for you to train your dog where you need him to listen to you most often. Arrangements can also be made to train in other locations.


Start Sooner

Birth to 16 weeks of age is an important stage in a dog’s development. Often group classes won’t admit your puppy at this age because he hasn’t completed his vaccines. Don’t miss the opportunity to give your puppy the best start in life. Puppies can begin as early as 8 weeks old.


Low Stress

If your dog displays any aggression, training is a critical but group classes may be too stressful for both of you. Dogs have trouble learning when in a panicked state. Ease the stress by working at a pace and distance that is right for both you and your dog.


Customized Training

You may only need to work on certain issues. With private training, you aren’t confined to a set curriculum. We can tackle the issues that are most important to you first. Training will be customized to target your specific needs in the shortest time possible.

The In-Home Training Process

If you’ve never had a dog trainer come to your home before, you’re probably wondering what it will be like. Dog trainers don’t always do things the same way. I use reward-based methods and customize my lessons to the individual needs of each dog and owner. Here’s how my training process works.

Demonstrate With Your Dog

Relax and watch as I teach your dog the basic commands then learn how to use them to direct your dog’s behavior.

Teach You And Your Family

I’ll make sure each of you can do what I did with your dog. After all, who cares if your dog listens to me - I go home!

Give You Lifetime Support

Feel free to reach out to me anytime you have questions, even after the program is over. There’s no additional charge for this support.

Eileen helps us in our home, which is great because Tania is being trained in her own environment. Our entire family looks forward to training sessions with Eileen!

She is warm and caring and Tania absolutely loves her. Eileen is also a great listener and helps us with any challenges that arise with a new puppy.

We recently went on a trip to Rhode Island, and people constantly stopped us saying how sweet and well behaved Tania was -- even on an hour ferry ride! Eileen is A++.
