Shelly Wood Dog Training and Behavior




These packages focus on teaching you and your dog skills to help you be happier together. The Foundations for Fun packages should get you and your dog off to the right start learning new behaviors and learning how to use those behaviors in different situations! 

In person packages are available to those who live within the city limits of Cape Girardeau or Jackson, MO. Occasionally I meet with people in Bollinger or Scott County and for folks who are out of my services area, I have the option of meeting at a facility in Cape Girardeau, and I offer online services as well.


Comfort! Not all dogs or people enjoy the classroom environment. If either you or your dog are shy or react in an overly excited way to other dogs or people you and your dog will appreciate learning in the comfort of your own home.

Convenient! Who needs one more thing to leave the house for? Let me come to you!

Effective! You won’t ever have to wait for my attention and all the focus will be on you and your dog. This individualized attention will enable me to spend the whole time we have together helping you and your dog build skills you need to succeed!

Efficient! We will be working in your everyday environment which will enable me to see how you might set things up to better help you and your dog succeed. You and your dog will be learning the skills where you will be using them the most.

Works for just about anyone! Maybe you have a large family and don’t want to bring everyone to class, but it’s too difficult to get away with the dog. This option is perfect then. I can come to you, or we can even meet remotely,  and we can get the entire family on the same training page!


Includes: Five sessions in your home or remotely (must be completed within seven weeks or less), training handouts, email support and membership in a private Foundations for Fun Facebook group for $550.

We will meet in your home (or via Zoom) five times to work on equipping you with the skills needed to teach your multiple behaviors  in the environment where you will use them the most.

During our time together, we will work on multiple foundation behaviors in your home. You will learn how to start teaching the behaviors and we will discuss how to begin getting these behaviors in other environments.

Foundations for Fun at Home is not the same as the customized services. While Foundations for Fun is somewhat customizable, the focus is on building foundational manners skills. We will not be creating training plans for specific behavior issues. If you have more complex behavioral challenges to address, please schedule a free call to start.
