Our Services

 

PROGRAM I / 8 sessions - $1000

Following and learning foundational obedience via voice commands and hand signals.

“Sit”:  Voice and hand signal.

“Stay”:  To achieve control of the dog while standing, opening doors and crossing the street while on the leash.

“Down”:  With a hand and voice command, the dog will learn to lay flat on the floor until given a different command. Note: The length of the command will depend on dog’s age and physical capabilities.

“Come”: This command teaches the dog to come (return to handler) and is the foundation of recall.

“Place”: A designated area of rest and control where the dog must remain. (Example: The dog will remain on the doggie pillow while owner is eating and working in home office)

“Heel”: This command teaches the dog to walk on the leash at the left side of the owner and respond to auto stops.

These sessions include modifying puppy behavioral issues.


PROGRAM II / 10 Sessions $1500

These sessions include all foundational commands in addition to remote/long distance commands. This program is for those who are looking to exceed foundational obedience.

“Long Stay”: The dog will learn how to “stay” up to 2 – 3 minutes from multiple distances. This will allow the handler to have better control and allow the owner to have more confidence with the dog.

“Off Leash Come”: This time we will use the foundation and extend it to the next level. This includes a 15 -30 feet “come”.

“Remote Down”: Raising your hand within the dog’s line of vision and/or giving a voice command and the dog responding to the “down” command from 15-30 feet away.


A $250 downpayment is required to reserve your dog's space.  Cancellations within 7 days will be refunded fully.  We schedule on a first come first served basis.

 

PROGRAM III / 18 sessions - $2500

Our Advanced program training includes long distance commands around live distractions and temptations with fast recalls. Socialization and control techniques, drills and utility sessions are all a part of this advanced package. Reinforcement of all foundational and intermediate commands will also be incorporated.

Locations for these sessions can include outdoor sessions conducted at a local park, store, dog park or desired neighborhood. These sessions will be performed side-by-side with the trainer to ensure that both the dog and handler have an opportunity to learn while the trainer evaluates both behavior and handling techniques.
