Our training methodology is one of balance and mutual respect between the owner/handler and the dog. By using this method the dog understands that obeying the commands gets him/her the things that they desire, making them more likely to repeat the behavior. On the flip-side, they also learn what no means and they are less likely to repeat unwanted behaviors. As with ALL training methods, consistency is the key and the owner is a huge part of any of our programs. (I can give you a Porsche, but you have to learn how to drive a stick)!
This is a popular and very effective course taught by one of our trainers. The course is 3 weeks. It covers all the basics with concentration on specific issues that you have with your pet. This produces a very solid obedient dog. Your dog will learn all basic commands with emphasis on manners in all situations. This program also helps the owner learn as well, with two training sessions (1 at 2 weeks and the other upon pickup). This course is a client favorite and generates comments such as “I can’t believe it’s the same dog” and “He’s so calm & content.” This program is $1600.00 (payable in 2 installments if needed).
Going on vacation and needing to board your pet anyway? This is a great solution to keep your dog interested and engaged, we can start from scratch or work on specific issues and make improvements where they are needed. This program is $79.00/day which includes the boarding fee.
Puppy Head Start
A private lesson to help the owner get off to the best start possible. This is a chance to get all your questions answered and nip those problem behaviors in the “tail”. (1/2 hour- 1 hour) $25.00-45.00
For owners desiring personal instruction tailored to the needs and personality of their dog. We can address any number of issues that owners typically have and are unsure of how to resolve. We find that private instruction give pets the best start, group lessons are “fun” and provide socialization for the dogs, but when working on specifics we think it’s more effective to work one-on-one. (1 hour) $50.00
