Private lessons are a great way to receive specialized help on potty training, not jumping on people, come when called, and many more dog obedience fundamentals.

Lessons in Our Home

We are happy to offer private lessons at our home at 5549 Colbright Road, Lake Worth 33467. Many problems may be addressed outside of your home setting, so we encourage you to be flexible and come to us. Lessons are reasonably priced at $65 per hour.

Please select Private Lessons in the Online Scheduler.

Please provide proof of Bordetella prior to your first lesson (text a photo to 561-906-2830). Bring a hungry dog and 30-50 pieces of chicken, cheese, or liver. If coming for leash walking practice, wear athletic shoes.

Lessons in Your Home

We offer private lessons at your home if you are within 20 minutes of 5549 Colbright Road, Lake Worth 33467. Lessons in your home are priced at $175/hour. We encourage you to supplement these lessons with daycare, group class, or outings with your dog.

Please select In-home Private Lessons in the Online Scheduler.

Please fast your dog for several hours prior to the lesson. Have him or her on leash when the trainer arrives. It is not necessary for the trainer to see the dog performing the behavior you do not like (e.g., jumping on people, biting).

We took Jax to Home Depot today to see how he did around people. He was perfect and did everything immediately on command. We were so proud of him. People came up and petted him. He was wonderful. I can't thank you enough for what you're doing for my baby. 


I'm delighted with the training we're receiving from West Palm Dog. My husband and I just adopted a new adult rescue dog about 10 days ago and, knowing there are often many issues with rescues, we wanted to hire a private trainer to help us overcome any obstacles from the start. Marti had the experience I was seeking with rescues and a gentle and positive philosophy. And training is fully personalized. Because of Walter's gentle guidance, she's already doing phenomenally well on an orderly walk. I love that this is not a cookie-cutter training program, but an approach based on our specific needs and adjusted to Cindy's personality. Walter has given us fabulous tips and advice on a whole host of issues, in addition to focusing on one or two training tasks in the lesson. It's a pleasure dealing with Marti and Walter. They are complete professionals. I feel very lucky to have found West Palm Dog Training. I fully endorse and recommend them.


We took Bunny out to dinner tonight and for a walk around Rosemary square. There were tons of people and some dogs. She was very, very well behaved. We are so impressed! Than you for your great work with her.


Just wanted to say thank you again! I can already see a huge difference in Roger and we are practicing a ton! Thank you for everything. We are looking forward to working with you guys again in the future


We felt that Walt was very effective with Jay. We liked him very much, and we think that Jay is going to learn a lot from him. Can't wait for our next lesson.

Cancellation Policy

Please choose the date and time for your private lesson carefully. Consistency is key to your dog’s training success. Because we want to see you reach your training goals, and because we keep our caseload small to provide personalized support toward those goals, we charge a $25 fee for missed or canceled training sessions. Please cancel/reschedule your appointment at least 24 hours in advance in Acuity or call Marti at 561-906-2830.

Homework Matters

Homework is important. We are disappointed when the dogs in our private lesson practice do not make progress, or when solutions offered are not applied. We understand that your schedule may become busy - please communicate with us when this happens -- we may be able to help.

We reserve the right to discontinue private lessons at any time. You may find it helpful to video parts of your lesson, or write down exercises to practice until next time.
