That's a whole lot of money for training. I'll fall over dead from that bill. Lol

When I used a private trainer it was $6500 for 6 weeks of inboard or $100 per session for her to come to you. I only had certain issues I needed help with and chose the per session option.

My club charges $100 for a yearly membership and $50 every 6 months for training fees. I train Sunday obedience, Wednesday obedience, every other Friday rally, and every other Saturday agility. Now that I'm the treasurer there I can show up and use the clubhouse/training field anytime its not in use by classes so my agility training will greatly increase. It's a pain to set up the equipment by myself, but its also great to have the run of the place for as long as I want.

325.00 for 8 private classes 45 min to hour depending on how it goes, then moving up to group classes which are included and you can go for the rest of your dogs life. Even after completing, sometimes you think your dog could use a little refresher. I am doing some advanced training which is 35 dollars for a 45 mins to hour, don't want my trainer reading this either.

We do IPO and Personal Protection. It's $35 each group class. We go once a week, sometimes more. I also train everyday at home to supplement it.

For behavioral modification, we were in a group class of 4 at $400 something for 8 classes.

For puppy classes, 6 classes for $130.

For individual training, if I drive an hour out of the city, it'll be $40 an hour. If I stay in the city, it's $80+ an hour.
