DOG TRAINING SERVICES - What We Do

Puppy Preschool

Puppies are in a critical stage of their life. How you interact with them now will shape them for life. We help you navigate the fun and hectic world of getting a new puppy by providing you with the information that will help you lay out exactly how to successfully introduce your puppy to all of their new experiences. 

We provide information on: 

  • Housebreaking

  • Crate training

  • Socialization

  • Environmental exposures

  • Beginner obedience

We will also help you break bad puppy behaviors:

  • Nipping 

  • Potty accidents

  • Chewing 

  • and more

 

Does your dog:

  • Pull on the leash during walks?

  • Bark at other dogs or people?

  • Jump on counters or people?

  • Run out of the door?

  • Not listen to your commands?

 

Our obedience programs will turn your dog into the best-behaved dog in the neighborhood!  We help with everything above as well as teach basic and advanced obedience, on and off-leash. 

 

  • Sit

  • Stay

  • Down

  • Come (Off-leash)

  • Place (Go to a spot and stay)

  • Leash manners

  • Formal heel

    • Walking next to you​

Behavior Modification

Stop bad behaviors caused by:

  • Aggression

  • Anxiety

  • Leash reactivity

  • Fear of new people/places

Addressing dogs with behavioral issues is very different than training obedience. Behavioral issues require a deep understanding of dog phycology as well as a wide range of techniques that gently build confidence and address the deeper lying issues.  We have years of experience and documented success in this area that allows us to specialize in this field.

 

Every behavioral case is unique.  We evaluate your dog carefully in order to determine the root of the issue(s) and train your dog as a whole, instead of giving you ways to mask the problems.  Once we assess the needs of your dog, we employ any number of reinforcement techniques to help change the dog's mindset.

 

We utilize specific and proven relaxation techniques, enrichment techniques, confidence boosting techniques, counter-conditioning techniques and desensitization techniques to provide a wholistic approach to resolving the behavioral issue(s). 

 

The end result is a more confident, better behaved dog and a happy dog owner that has a deeper understanding and stronger connection with their best friend.  

 

DOG TRAINING SERVICES - How We Do It

In-Home Lessons or Board and Train Programs

In-Home Lessons

We work with you and your dog in your home or a park near you.

 

We teach you how to work with your dog.  

First, we speak with you in order to learn your goals and determine a custom training plan.  Then we teach you the proper techniques to set your dog up for success.  

Lessons are usually once a week.  Between each lesson, we will provide you with instructions of what to work on with your dog between each lesson.  The more you work with your dog, the more quickly they will progress! 

*Individual Lessons are $125

*Lesson packages starting at $495

Board and Train

We offer 1, 2 or 3-Week Board and Train Programs.  

We do the hard work so you don't have to.

Depending on your needs, your dog will spend 1, 2 or 3 weeks in a safe, focused and fun learning environment with an experienced trainer where your dog will receive 3-5 "Active Lessons" each day.

 

The rest of the day, your dog will be in a comfortable home where we continue our "Passive Training"; making sure they adhere to each newly acquired skill!

 

This helps your dog focus on continuously learning and not allowing to revert to old habits that can so easily happen in the home. This is the most effective way to get your dog trained.  

2 and 3-Week Programs Include:

  • Any equipment and devices needed for training

  • (up to a $250 value)

*Board & Train Programs starting at $1,295
