ACT’s private training program is designed for pet parents who consider their dogs as family members. We focus on solving real-world challenges while nurturing your dog's independence.

You have the vision of what you want your day-to-day life with your pup to look like. Let Shir help make it a reality! 

When you choose 1:1 training for your pup(s), Shir comes to you ensuring that the work is grounded in your lifestyle needs. 

So, whether it’s working on your dog’s manners to ensure your next party goes off without any unexpected surprises or cutting down the anxiety of walks with your leash reactive pup, Shir’s seen and handled it all. 

Why private training

Personalized program


We fit our approach into your life. Whether you’re looking for support with your dog’s manners, want to eliminate annoyances like counter surfing, jumping on guests, or are working through anxiety-inducing triggers such as leash reactivity or being fearful of children, this program

flexible approach


Our clients understand that the real training happens in between the sessions with Shir, which is why we tailor their structure to your needs. Whether it’s the time needed in between sessions to practice, or adapting our approach to your learning style, Shir intentionally customizes the program to ensure it works for your whole family.

unparalleled support


Have questions in between sessions? Unlike other programs that make you wait until your next appointment, Shir is available to support you via email and text when real-world instances come up.
