Private NePoPo® Lessons

This includes exclusive personal one-on-one private lessons and weekend environmental NePoPo® club classes. This program begins with private in-home family lessons where I teach you how to interpret a dog’s actions as well as how a dog learns. I also educate you on the NePoPo® Dog Training System and how it will benefit you and your dog. Dog training is a lifestyle and these private lessons will transition to environmental outdoor training under heavy distractions both on and off-leash.

You will learn the fundamentals of the NePoPo® Dog Training System while working with your dog. This will include everything from raising a young puppy to advanced American Kennel Club certifications and much more. You will be tested in basic to advanced distractions and influences, during our NePoPo® Dog Training System club weekend group class.

Our private lessons are designed to teach advanced dog training theory and how to apply it in real-life scenarios. E.g., how do people in wheelchairs train their dogs? How to understand the difference between trick training (e.g., a dog who does not listen in heavy distractions, but may listen when no distractions are present.) versus obedience training, where the dog learns to do your command on cue always in any environmental setting.

The NePoPo® Dog Training System produces an environmentally sound and confident dog that listens even when heavy distractions are present. I will prepare your dog and your family for real-life scenarios so you can handle your obedient dog in any environmental setting.

You will be pushed to do the following AKC certifications and titles:


AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy is an exciting program designed to get dog owners and their puppies off to a good start. AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy is an excellent first in-person training class for puppies. AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy provides a good lead-in to earning the Canine Good Citizen title.


CGC training creates long-lasting trust between you and your dog, but also ensures you’ll be good neighbors and friends to everyone around you. If you’re interested in going beyond the basics, CGC also lays the foundation for other AKC sports and activities like obedience, agility, tracking, and performance events. 


AKC Community Canine is to test the dog’s skills in a natural opening setting. For example, rather than the dog being tested in a ring, in AKC Community Canine, the “walks through a public crowd”. The test item will involve the dog walking through a real crowd, on a busy sidewalk, in a therapy dog setting, or at public transportation MTA.


AKC Urban CGC is a public access test that demonstrates dogs are well-behaved and well-trained when in public settings. The Urban CGC test can be used by dog-friendly businesses (e.g., lodging, retail, transportation, public facilities) to recognize and accept dogs with good manners.


In AKC Trick Dog, dogs and their owners can have fun learning tricks together. There are three levels of AKC Trick Dogs: Novice, Intermediate, and Advanced.


The sport of Scent Work celebrates the joy of sniffing, and asks a dog to sniff to their heart’s content; turning your dog’s favorite activity into a rewarding game. It is a terrific sport for all kinds of dogs, and is a wonderful way to build confidence in a shy dog. There are four levels: Novice, Intermediate, Advanced, and Detective.

Inspired by working detection dogs, K9 Nose Work is the fun search and scenting activity for virtually all dogs and people. This sport builds confidence and focus in many dogs, and provides a way to keep dogs fit and healthy through mental and physical exercise no matter your dogs age!

Prepare for a life-time of fun and adventure with your dog!

Having the best technology and equipment is essential in doing the right job. With this program you are invited to our weekend NePoPo® Dog Training Club sessions, where I push your obedience to higher levels. During weekend sessions, you will see and learn about training a dog's nose as much as his ears for listening to commands.
