Private Coaching Options

One-on-one dog training help from the comfort of your couch

NEW! Exclusively for All-Access Pass members: single coaching sessions

Need some direct coaching help but forums or group Q&As aren’t your thing? Can’t fit the live Q&A sessions into your schedule? Current Academy members can set up Zoom meetings with Jake whenever you’d like.

Get unstuck

Sometimes dog life (especially if you’re dealing with multiple behavior challenges) can become a tangled mess in your brain and leave you frustrated and paralyzed into inaction.

Let us help you figure out where to start and how to get unstuck. These sessions can help you sort out your thoughts, cut through the noise, and be a lot less overwhelmed.

Less intensive than our full coaching program (see below), this option is good for things like:

  • Gaining insight into a dog behavior issue that you don’t know what to make of.
  • Answering the question “is this one of those behaviors my puppy will grow out of, or do I need to be concerned?”
  • Figuring out how to adapt the course material to your unique dog.
  • Troubleshooting a sticky point in your training.
  • Determining what to prioritize in your dog training struggles.
  • Making sure you’re ready before your new dog comes home.
  • Discussing what a training plan might look like for your particular situation.
  • Getting advice for topics that aren’t covered in the courses.
  • Just venting your frustrations and chatting with someone who gets it.

What's included:

A one-hour video chat on Zoom. After the session, we’ll send you the recording so you can watch it whenever you want and refresh your memory. We’ll also send you links to any Academy content, articles, or other resources we think might help. 

What's not included:

A training plan, detailed written homework, review of your training session footage, follow-up check-ins, or the ability to text your questions to Jake between sessions. If you’d like that level of support, consider the full private coaching program below.

What our clients say:

Susan writes: Jake, you and Erin are fabulous - thank you for all these great resources. I plan to use all of them and am so happy I found 3 Lost Dogs. Also, congratulations to you and Erin - what a wonderful team/couple you make! Best, Susan and Molly
Danielle writes: Hi Jake! Thank you so much for your time video chatting with me last week. I wanted to follow up and let you know that adding the mental stimulation has worked wonders for Ollie! He is doing so well with the Baby Obedience training, it's amazing how quickly he learns. Thank you again for your help - I would recommend 3LostDogs to anyone with a new puppy! You guys are amazing and have saved our sanity...Ollie is definitely growing into a well behaved and under control puppy! Of course he had his wild moments, but it's so much more enjoyable to play with him during these times when they last for a little while, and not all day long. Thanks again and I will be in touch if we get stuck again!!
Heather writes: Jake & Erin You guys are the best! Went to REI earlier today and picked up the Ruffwear front range harness. With the technique in the training video, roasted chicken and the lick mat, I was able to successfully put Odin's harness on with out any biting or fussing. He was calm and not panting! Thank you so much. We are looking forward to getting started on the rest of our homework 😀 Have a great weekend!
