Whether you prefer private dog training sessions for the individual attention, the convenience of training around your busy schedule, or because you want to tackle specific training issues in a private setting, we’re here to help you.
Each private lesson is designed to meet your individual goals. We’ll spend the hour focusing on what you want to teach your dog and what problems you want solved. We’ll then give you a personalized homework plan that works for you and your dog.
Sessions last one hour and can be held at your home or in our training room at Nooga Paws in 2 North Shore Chattanooga. We service the entire greater Chattanooga area.
Our training rates: four lessons $497, six lessons $697, eight lessons $897. The travel fee for in-home lessons is $1/mile round-trip.
Don’t put off improving your relationship with your dog. Contact us today to make an appointment or to schedule a free private consultation with the trainer!
We book all lessons through Square Appointments so you get notified and reminded in advance about lessons. Accepted payment types: credit/debit (with card fee), PayPal and checks payable to Valor K9 Academy; we do not accept cash payments.
Dana is amazing! She helped me build confidence as a new dog mom at the same Tim she transformed Archie from a stray pup into such a well-mannered boy! I highly recommend training with Dana. I look forward to continuing on to the next level with her help!
Abe and I have taken private lessons with Dana for the last month. I could not be more pleased with our progress! I am so thankful to Dana for helping our family learn the best structure for Abe so he can continue to grow into a well rounded and happy boy! He has come so far and we hope to continue learning from Dana and Valor K9 Academy in the future! Thank you again, so much!
Dana is the best! My 8 year old mix has always been reactive to other dogs, to the point that taking her out was not fun anymore. After a few sessions with Dana, we can now go out and she will quietly walk past strange dogs with hardly a second look. We also picked up lots of other useful tools such as sit stay, down stay and many more. Thanks Dana!!!
Lessons are fun and informative! I really liked that Dana was able to cater the lessons to my dog and what I wanted him to improve on or learn. Dana did a great job of explaining everything in an easy-to-understand manner and kindly suggested ways to improve. I can't thank her enough!
I can't say enough about how excellent our experience with Dana has been....Dana was extremely professional, experienced and knowledgeable. She actually exceeded our expectations...This was one of the best decisions and investments we have made.
Dana is absolutely the best! Our vet recommended her for training our two Airedale Terriers and after just a few lessons, they are different dogs. Before we had two very loving little Tasmanian devils at the end of a leash. She was so patient and professional as she trained us to train our dogs. Now they walk nicely on leash and know sit, down, come and free. I highly recommend that anyone in the Chattanooga area considering dog training call Dana.
I would absolutely recommend Valor K9 Academy to anyone needing dog training. Their professionalism and training methods are the best I've seen.
What a great experience! We brought our dog to Dana for leash aggression issues and learned several other commands along the way. This was our second time using Valor (our first dog worked with Amy years ago). We wouldn't trust anyone else with our pups!
Many thanks to Dana - her knowledge and patience have been great for our dog. He's a big dude (about 100 pounds at eight months old) so learning some manners has been a must.
Dana is an amazing trainer! She took the time to answer my questions and helped me understand what motivated my dog to learn. Thank you!
Dana has an amazing connection with owners and dogs. She customizes your training plan and is very good about helping with anything you don't understand. Thank you, Valor K9, for giving us a wonderful family member!
We just finished our 5 private lessons with Dana and she was really great with our Daisy, as she is a super nervous dog, but just in 5 visits she was coming out of her shell and doing great with commands. We are both learning new ways and being more structured!
