In-Board Training

In-Board Training

21-Day In-Boarding Training Program

21-Day In-Boarding Training Program

My unique training allows your dog to stay with me in my home 24 hours a day. There is a high priority on teaching mode to train your dog house manners, yard manners, or etiquette while at home. Some of the things we focus on include teaching the dog:

  • Not to run out the door, if left open
  • Excessive barking
  • Destructive behavior and so much more!

Obedience

Obedience

Dogs learn basic obedience (heel, sit, down, stay, come) along with:

  • Self-control
  • Walk nicely on leash without pulling
  • High-level obedience commands

For example, we train the dogs to down-stay for 20 minutes in your home while you are having dinner or out in public.

Private Training

Private Training

Our private training programs start with an in-home consultation. Our experienced trainers will visit your home for a personalized plan that corrects pet behavior problems and teach obedience. The program improves pet’s behavior to create a stronger bond with owners. With increased obedience training comes increased trust and respect, the foundation for any great owner-pet relationship.

Basic Obedience

Basic Obedience

Private training begins with learning basic obedience commands: Heel, Sit, Stay, Down and Come. Dogs learn both word signals and hand signals to follow, and we will show you the proper, proven methods to train your dog.

Distractions

Distractions

The best-trained dog follows basic commands around distractions - other dogs, cats, children, rabbits, and the like. As soon as your dog has exhibited a strong knowledge of the basic commands within the confines of your own home, we add distractions for your pup to follow your commands at all times. We will head to the park, to the coffee shop, and to downtown areas to challenge.

Off-Leash

Off-Leash

The ultimate sign of dog obedience is to follow your commands without wearing a leash. By teaching a firm foundation of commands, introducing distractions, and slowly weaning your pup off the leash, let us establish a stronger relationship between you and your dog. Let them off-leash with the confidence that they will follow your commands at all times.

Problem-Solving

Problem-Solving

Our experts will address any issues specific to your dog. Many issues will disappear on their own as a by-product of establishing a healthy dog-owner relationship, but for lingering behavioral problems, we will develop and implement personalized programs to fix them.

Group Training

Group Training

Our group training classes teach the same basic skills as our private training classes in a more structured environment with the benefits of dog socialization. We have different levels of classes available to meet the needs of your pup.

Let us put a stop to sleepless nights and behavior problems now. Rely on our expertise to teach you the secrets of communicating with your puppy to be your pup’s lifelong leader and new best friend.

In-Home Consultation

In-Home Consultation

Puppy training begins with an at-home, personalized consultation and workshop. We will come to your home to spend 2–2½ hours with you and your puppy, evaluating all aspects of you and your puppy, including the following:

  • Where the dog lives
  • Where the dog sleeps
  • Where the dog eats
  • Where he pees and poops
  • What he chews
  • How/ where he plays

We will also consider your puppy’s breed, age, home layout, family members, and any special situations.

Hands-On Workshop

Hands-On Workshop

Our evaluation goes simultaneously with a workshop in which you will receive hands-on training. Within the first few minutes of your consultation, basic techniques to improve your puppy’s behavior will be provided. Recent research reflects younger puppies learn faster. So we’ll begin training right away. The principles and communication skills learned in this hands-on workshop are the stepping stones to having that perfect dream dog.

After a thorough evaluation and this initial workshop, we will create a program plan suited to the specific needs of you and your puppy. At the end of our puppy program, your pup will be able to do the following:

  • Walk themselves outside to pee and poop
  • Spend calm time with the family
  • Follow you without a leash
  • Come every time you call

This workshop and subsequent programs prevent sleepless nights, barking, chewed personal items, mouthing, soiled carpets, and jumping. Dog training from the dogs’ point of view is your guarantee for success.
