I signed my dog up for dog training & were coming up on the last training session. It was 200.00 for 4 one on one private one hour sessions at a park. That fee was payed in advance. The last hour of training will be this coming week and I am wondering if we should tip the dog trainer. If so, how much?

If you feel that the services went above and beyond what you paid for, or were particularly pleased, or intend to come back to this particular trainer, then yes, by all means.
The way you describe the set-up seems all inclusive, as this person is probably running their own training business. If it were a class at a chain store, like Petco or Petsmart, then I’d say DEFINITELY tip well, as the person isn’t actually getting paid from what you’re paying them.

Since they were private sessions and at a private location, and you were happy with the service, I would probably give at least a small tip.

Thank you. I was planning on tipping her, I just am not sure if I have to give a certain amount is if anything is okay.

Huh. I never would have thought to tip a dog trainer! Good to know.
