Private Dog Training Solutions

We couldn’t recommend Serenity Dog Training enough! We purchased the 10 class package of private training sessions and Angela has been so fantastic. Until finding Serenity Dog Training, we struggled so much with training our 2 1/2 year old quarantine puppy. Our dog Badger is high energy, reactive and not well socialized. Angela had been so patient, working with us at Badger’s pace, and she has given us the tools to teach and train Badger. Her gentle, non-harming approach to dog training has not only helped us to manage Badger’s behaviors but also made our bond with Badger so much stronger.

Angela has a natural talent for understanding pups & teaching us humans how to handle pups! She’s very personable and tailored our training to the issues we were dealing with. She’s very patient and loving with the pups and is very knowledgeable about ways to handle various issues in a kind way, treating your pet as a family member. I’d highly recommend her as a great way to understand training & understand your pup. Our little girl is a bundle of energy and she helped us figure out how to deal with her biting and jumping, and gave us some relaxation techniques too. She breaks thing down into small steps that you can implement.

Angela worked through to teach me about dog behavior and Sally’s behaviors. She gave me positive tips on turning Sally’s anxiety into a game. Everything is a game!  Sally loved school. And Angela used technology to get the most out of our sessions. By video conference we were able to work with Sally on her behaviors in the home. This was powerful: like a house visit by the doctor to see the issue and adapt our home and responses to make a difference in Sally.

We have both learned a lot. Now with consistency we can game/train to continue to help Sally manage her anxiety responses. We’ve even gotten compliments on her behavior when hiking the trail!  Thank you Angela!

Not quite ready to commit to a package?

I’ve got you covered!

Serenity’s virtual Initial Behavioral Consultation is 90 minutes dedicated to assessing your dog’s individual needs and quirks in addition to answering your questions about your dog’s behavior.

Although we will not be engaging in any training during the consultation, an initial customized plan covering skill-building, emotional regulation, and effective environmental management will be crafted to meet your dog’s specific needs.

For optimal results, training plans are designed to be implemented through a multi-session package or subscription. You’ll receive guidance to determine which options align best with your dog’s unique needs.

Should you choose to enroll in a package offering within one month of the consultation, $85 will be credited toward the package price.

Great dog training experience with Angela who helped us learn how to better manage developing behaviors with our rather stubborn Heeler/mix puppy of 4-5 months. Her techniques of positive reinforcement are very effective, especially for a rescue puppy.

How It All Works


If you’re within Two Harbors city limits (right in town: uptown, downtown, Segog, Harbor Hills) I can come to your home, we can meet within town, or meet virtually.

If outside city limits: We can meet virtually if you have a stable internet connection (click here for FAQ on virtual training) OR we can meet in town. I have limited availability of an indoor location or we can meet outdoors weather permitting.

Once you have paid for your package, we can then get you scheduled.

For most programs, the first session will be virtual to discuss expectations, set goals, and get you started on some foundational exercises.  Don’t worry, virtual’s way easier than you may think. Check out the FAQs to learn more about how virtual training works.


Then for the remaining sessions we will meet virtually or in-person every week or two to continue working on the goals we discussed at the initial session. Sessions typically run 45-60 minutes.

Throughout your program, you’ll be able to get questions answered, send video messages for feedback on practice sessions (highly recommended for maximizing your investment), and have access to written resources as well. If you have a preferred way of learning new information, just let me know and I’d be happy to accommodate as best I can.
