Private Lesson Training


“My dog Hazel and I had an amazing time with our private lessons. Amy was fantastically helpful and patient with me. Hazel came from the shelter and only responded to sit; she pulled on her leash, and was very independent off leash. It didn’t take much time at all to start making progress. I couldn’t be happier!” -Joshua P.

Customized Private Lessons

Private lessons are one-on-one training sessions where we work with you and your dog to help reach your training goals together. All training is customized to your dog’s individual learning style, and we cater our training methods based on your dog’s temperament. Obedience lessons include puppy training and basic to advanced obedience for adult dogs. Rehabilitation training is for dogs with mild to moderate behavior issues such as leash reactivity, separation anxiety and resource guarding.  Dogs with serious aggression are not candidates for private training.

Our Chattanooga location offers private lessons Monday through Saturday 10AM-7PM. Lessons can be held at Nooga Paws in our training space, downtown, at the park, or even in the privacy of your own home.  VK9-Chattanooga email:
