When I met Sara, my self confidence was at an all time low and my anxiety was through the roof. Because of this, Willow began to lunge at people, animals, and even bit a few people, including me. Because of Sara, Willow no longer bites or lunges and I am smiling and laughing more and have a whole new outlook on life.

Are we the right trainers for you?




In-Home Lessons + Day Camp + Group Classes

In your home, at Bakers Acres on a field trip, or over FaceTime, we’ll get it done.

Training begins within the privacy, comfort, and convenience of your home…and coincidentally, where most of the naughty doggy behaviors manifest. Multiple lesson times are available, including day time, evenings, and weekends (closed Sundays and Mondays).

In-Home Lessons cover topics like: potty training rules and guidelines, be calm in the house, be quiet and relaxed in the crate, the importance of sleep and nutrition, stop biting and nipping, walking nicely on a leash, respect boundaries and personal space, give up toys, treats, and other valuables without a fuss, plus remote collar introduction and functions, and "come" on command. Detailed notes & homework assignments are tailored just for you and your dog.


Upon successfully completing the initial in-home lessons, training transitions to Day Camp (up to 4 days, Thursdays 8am-5pm, are included in your program price) + Group Classes. Day Camp takes what your dog learned in your home and applies it to life at Bakers Acres to help you dog acclimate to a boarding or daycare situation that you might need in the future. We mainly focus on socialization around new dogs, new people, and new environments, broadening your dog’s perspective on the world and preparing them for what’s out there.

Group Classes are held at Bakers Acres or on a field trip (photo taken at Barnes & Noble) for additional support and troubleshooting that you can only tackle while in a group or public setting like working around distractions, walking your dog down the street without exploding, and when and how to safely socialize with other dogs. These classes are open to all clients who have finished their in-home training (up to 6 months of group class is included in your program price). Class is held weekly on Thursdays at 6pm, right after a day of Day Camp concludes. Details of your first Group Class will be emailed to you after your final in-home lesson.


What’s included?

You’ll have access to your trainer throughout the training process (via Marco Polo or Facebook Messenger) for the purpose of reviewing homework assignments and answering follow-up questions.

Continued help is always available by joining our Client Only FB Group (The Bakers Acres Pack) and participating in weekly LIVE Q&As with your trainer.

Sky has become the best possible dog. He hasn’t eaten his bed in over a year. He is great and very patient with kids. And he goes on hikes up Šmarna Gora with me. Thank you for all the advice!
