PRIVATE ON SITE

This is for the " I have a pit bull who LOVES people, LOVES kids, LOVES every new situation and my only issue is DOG AGGRESSION!"
First of all, welcome to the world of the pit bull! Dog aggression is common in this breed. While it cannot be cured we can teach your dog to behave in public and not 'freak out' every time he/she sees another dog. If you are a New Orelans local we offer on site private desensitization sessions for you and your dog. Here at our facility we have many Pit Bulls who can be used to help you and your dog become comfortable in the presence of other dogs, all the while teaching you how to handle your dog in this situation. This is a safe and calm environment for your dog to start the process of being relaxed around other dogs. And remember, no matter how bad you think your dog is, trust us, we've seen worse.

Cost:

$120 session (session lasts up to an hour depending on you & your dog.  Payment for this program is to Louise directly, and due upon receipt of services.

$400/ 4 sessions – more than one session is recommended as the more safe controlled experiences your dog has, the more comfortable he/she will become. The final session is done off site, to provide an alternative environment for your dog to learn in.

PRIVATE IN HOME TRAINING

This is for the "My pit bull is so dog aggressive I'm afraid to bring him up there" or the '"My pit bull is sweet with the family but tried to bite my neighbor" or "My pit bull is my best friend but I can't get near him when he eats" or "My pit bull was beaten and is afraid of everything." This program is for any behavioral issue other than straight up dog aggression. Unfortuntely, we are seeing more and more people issues with pit bulls, due to poor breeding and owner mismanagement. We will work with you to help manage an overwhelming situation and turn both you and your dogs lives around. No guarantees are made as sometimes the genetics are too ingrained to "fix". However, we will give you the tools to safely manage your dogs behavior.

Cost – $200 session. If you are more than 25 miles outside the New Orelans area we charge more for travel costs. (Sessions normally last between one and two hours) Contact – louise@vrcpitbull.com to set up an appointment
