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!

Option 1: Single sessions

Do you have a specific dog problem you’d like help troubleshooting? Are you getting a new dog and want to know exactly what to do and when? Do you need a pep talk because your new puppy is driving you insane? A single session might be right for you!

These are one-hour video chats where you and Jake can discuss your dog issues and come up solutions that fit your unique situation.

These video chats are good for things like:

  • Troubleshooting house training conundrums
  • Managing new-puppy overwhelm
  • Making a training plan or daily routine for your new dog
  • Choosing the right dog for you
  • Making a “plan of attack” for behavior problems

How it works:

After you purchase a session, we’ll email you to ask some questions about your situation and schedule the Zoom meeting.

After our chat, we’ll send you the recording of the meeting, written instructions for your “homework,” plus links to any videos, articles, or other resources that might help.

Price: $50 per one-hour session. 

Option 2: Puppy Survival School - Coaching Edition

Hey, puppy parents! 

Do you want a personalized puppy training plan, with coaching every step along the way? Do you want to be able to show us video of you working with your pup, so we can give you some friendly feedback and help you improve your skills?

That’s what this package is for.

It includes our complete Puppy Survival School program, plus four one-hour video chats with us. 

Video chats are held weekly via Zoom meeting, at a time that works for you. 

What to expect: 

At our first session, us humans will chat (no puppies necessary). We’ll ask you lots of questions so we can give you the most accurate advice possible, we’ll answer your questions, and create a personalized training plan. 

Over the four weeks, we’ll give you homework to do, and have you upload videos of your puppy training so we can give you pointers. 

At sessions 2-4, we’ll troubleshoot any issues that develop, and decide what to do next. If you’d like, you can even put your pup in front of the camera, and we’ll coach you, live, through a training session.


This multi-session coaching package is currently only available for puppies. If you’re interested in something like this for your adult dog, please email us first so we can talk about whether it’s the right fit for your situation:
