Obedience Training

We offer a variety of dog training from private lessons, in-board training to group lessons for all breeds of dogs. The first step in getting your dog trained is by starting with an evaluation of the dog so we can get an idea of what the training will entail. Our evaluations of your dog are free if you come to our facility. Otherwise we charge a $50 service fee to come to your place which will be included as part of a lesson or package price if one is purchased. The information we provide is our best judgment of what we suggest would be best for you and your dog. Buying a package will also allow discounts on each lesson.  We also offer 15% discount off any purchase for any police, military, EMS, or fire personnel. (with valid ID)

Private Lessons

With private lessons you will work one on one with us and your dog to accomplish the goals you are looking to achieve. We spend about one hour with you and your dog working on training you. Yes, we will help you with your dog but the best results are achieved when your dog is being trained by you. It not only helps to develop a stronger bond with dog but also teaches the dog a clear state of mind. We sell packaged lessons for a discounted rate.(Highly popular and suggested purchase) On a normal basis each lesson package equals that amount of weeks for training.

Example: If you buy a 6 pack of lessons, ideally it would be training the dog over a period of 6 weeks. With you meeting with us, once a week, for about an hour. We will give you some training ideas to take home and work with your dog for that week.

In-Board Training

Here you bring your dog to us for training. Most the time in-board training is use for dominate or aggressive dogs where private lessons may not benefit as much. But we always offer the ability for any dog to come in for training.  It is more expensive than private lessons or group lessons because of the constant training and care for the dog.  With in-board training the dog can be worked with and handled multiple times everyday by a professional experienced dog trainer.  Our goals with in-board training are to create a clear state of mind by teaching the dog new choices in life.  After the in-board training is finished we always want to do a follow-up lesson (which is included in the price of the in-board training) with the client so that the dog understands the same rules apply at home.

Group Classes

This is the least expensive of all our training options for obedience.  In the group setting there will be one to two trainers to work with everyone and their dogs.  These classes last about one hour, one day a week and last for five weeks.  We cover everything from sit, down, focus work, recall , stay and loose leash walking.  Our group classes are revolving, meaning they can be joined at any time! This makes the class quite unique, and keeps availability open.

 

Puppy Class (12-18 weeks)

Our 5 week puppy course is specifically designed to help pet parents with new additions. We cover many topics such as potty training, grooming, how dogs learn, nutrition, socialization and more. During class you will learn how to effectively set rules and boundaries, mark behaviors, introduce environmental stimuli the right way and properly handle your new pup. We end each week with a supervised puppy play.

Basic Obedience

During our basic obedience lessons you will not only learn, but perfect the following commands:  Sit, down, leave it, loose leash walking and recall.  It is our goal, that by the end of your course you leave with a full understanding of how to shape behavior, communicate with your dog, and above all form a strong bond that lasts a lifetime. This class is the foundation class to all of our intermediate and advanced courses.
