The Private Virtual Dog Training Program

Now accepting new clients!

Goodbye self-doubt and information overload, hello peace of mind

Do you want…

  • A customized dog training plan?
  • To be able to text a dog trainer any time you have a question?
  • To be able to send us video of you working with your dog, so we can give you some friendly feedback and help you improve your skills?

The private coaching program might be right for you!

As your coach, I (Jake) will be there to guide you every step of the way and show you exactly what to do with YOUR unique dog, and make things work for your life and family.

We can help with a wide variety of canine issues, including but not limited to:

  • Getting your new dog or puppy settled in and off to a good start.
  • Getting your dog to pay attention and follow cues in public.
  • Teaching your dog manners around the house. Handle issues like food stealing, jumping up, excessive barking, and begging at the table.


  • Knowing exactly what to do and when.
  • Being able to send me clips of your dog’s behavior, and getting an answer on whether it’s normal or not.
  • Not having the nagging voice in the back of your head asking “am I ACTUALLY doing this right, or am I going to ruin my new dog forever?”
  • Having the encouragement and support of someone who’s been there, who gets it, and who will never judge you for having moments of wishing your demon puppy would just disappear.

With me as your coach, you can stress less and just focus on enjoying life with your dog.

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!

What's included?

How does it work?

Just like with the All-Access Pass, the private lessons package is a monthly membership. You get two virtual coaching sessions per 30-day period, which you can schedule whenever you’d like.

At our first session, us humans will chat (your dog doesn’t need to be present). We’ll ask you lots of questions so we can give you the most accurate advice possible, we’ll answer your questions, and work with you to create a “plan of attack.”

After each session, I’ll send you homework. Over the month, you can text us (via SMS or through messaging built into the Academy site), and send us videos of your dog’s behavior and/or training so we can give you pointers. 

What does it cost?

Price: $199 per month. (Prices are in USD)

There’s no commitment required. Stay for one month and then cancel, or keep renewing for as long as you need.

Some of our clients find that they only need coaching for 30 days, just to get them on track. If so, that’s great! Our goal is to give you the tools you need to become your own expert.

You may cancel your membership at any time and you’ll still have access to it for the remainder of the 30 days, and then it won’t renew. You can also downgrade to the normal All-Access Pass.
