About the Sessions:

The first session must be booked at the training center in Seattle. Once you have booked your first session, you will receive a code so you can select in home sessions. Please note the location column on the pull-down calendar above. If the session location is listed as Ahimsa, the session cannot be done off-site.

For off-site sessions, please make sure you are within the Primary BLACK LINE service area to book online without emailing Wynona first. Appointments can be arranged in the  Extended GRAY LINE service area via email but additional travel fees will apply. After scheduling extended service area session(s) with Wynona, please use this link to pay the Extended Service Area Travel Fee for each session.

After you register for a session, you will complete a comprehensive history form online for Wynona to read before the session. That way, she can get right to work helping you and your dog have a better future, rather than spending the whole time learning about your dog’s past. This saves you time and money. During the session, your trainer will ask you some additional questions during the first portion to get a complete picture of your dog’s issue(s). After that, she will teach you how to use the most appropriate, modern, dog-friendly techniques, based on what is the best fit for your dog and your family. She will also give you a written follow-up email to review the topics covered during the session.

When you register, your confirmation email will also include login information, so that you can log in to change your schedule. Any unused sessions can be refunded within 6 months of purchase (Used sessions are charged at the regular rate. Click here for our cancellation/change policy.)

Wynona also teaches a Growly Dog class at Ahimsa in Seattle for aggression and reactivity to other dogs.  If your dog is reactive to humans, you definitely need a private session, rather than the class. Please call 206-364-4072 or email to help you find the best training option for your dog.
