Basic Training Courses

 

Our Basic courses cover far more than just the basics.  We teach you how to read your dog's body language to better understand each other.  We walk you through how dogs learn to form the best bond between you and your dog.

The programs listed are what we recommend every dog and dog owner learn in order to have a well behaved adult dog, we teach more than what is listed on these courses.  We can always create a customized program to meet you and your new pet's training goals. 

Online courses are weekly with practice homework you and the family can do at your own pace.  All in person training courses include our online content so you can go back at any time for a refresher.

6 week Board and Train Program

Our Board and Train Program is for owners who are going to have a hard time setting aside time to work with their dog daily to get the results they're looking for.  That doesn't mean we do all the work and hand them back to you, dogs don't generalize, we will still meet with you at least once a week to go over what we're working on and walk you through the steps.  Not all dogs will qualify to be in our Board and Train Program, especially since we only take one dog in at a time so we can focus on their care and training.  Dogs must be able to be crated overnight and the number of hours that they are months old (8 week old puppy = 2 hours)

The first two weeks are spent getting the dog into a routine and teaching them to look to the handler for direction.  We then move on to loose leash walking and easy cues that help with self control before moving onto the more complex cues.  

This program covers

  • The Nothing Exercise (a calming exercise)

  • eye contact

  • leave it

  • take

  • drop

  • hand targeting

  • recall

  • who's that

  • sit

  • wait

  • release

  • and loose leash walking
