In Kennel Evaluations

(By appointment):     $95                   
Trainer:  Debbie Poloka

An In Kennel Evaluation is a good way for the trainer to initially see your dog while staying at Sandy Hill Kennels and to start a training program or begin to solve behavioral issues. 

Doing an evaluation at the kennel allows the trainer to see your dog outside of your home, away from you and other family members, see your dog’s reaction to different types of dogs, people and environmental stimulation in and around the kennel.

A follow up hour long In Home Session is strongly suggested after an In Kennel Evaluation.  Some behaviors require an In Home Evaluation.  Please see In Home Services.


In Kennel Private Sessions

(By appointment only)  Trainer:  Debbie Poloka

$80 /per hour

Private Sessions while your dog stays or daycares at the kennel are a great way to follow up on after an evaluation visit, attending one of my classes.  The one-on-one attention to your dog in a kennel environment make this a very effective choice for certain behavior issues related to distractions, other dogs, or strangers.

Difficult and Aggressive Dog rate starting at $90+ per session.  Rate will be dependent on initial evaluation of dog that requires additional handlers and/or training dogs.
