6 Week Basic Obedience

 

This class is for dogs over the age of 6 months.  It will reinforce behaviors from the puppy class and strengthen others such as stay, heel, recall, and others.  This class will also add new "tricks" such as paw, spin, and close.  Puppy class would not be a prerequisite, but is recommended.

6 Week Puppy Class

This class is for dogs under the age of 5 months.  The purpose is to set the family and dog up for success of having general manners while building the relationship between you and your baby.  It will introduce puppies to behaviors such as: 

  • responding to their name

  • making eye contact

  • sit

  • down

  • out 

  • come

  • accepting food politely

  • socialization

  • heel

  • kennel up

  • introduction to stay

 

Canine Good Citizen Prep Class

 

This 6 week class would have a pre-test for each dog to see where there room for improvement to prepare for the Canine Good Citizen Evaluation.  The class focuses on the test entirely, and will end with the evaluation.

Private Training

 

Everything done in a private training is personalized to each dog and what each owner would like to work on.  This is a one on one training session for one hour.

Stay and Learn

 

This is an option for day boarding dogs over regular boarding.  This is a great option if your dog does not get along with other dogs or you don't want to board them.  Our trainer would work with your dog one hour out of the day that they are here.  Training is discussed prior to training day.

Kitty Class

 

This class would be a 2 week mini course to begin socialization in kittens, train them to be comfortable with nail trimmings, and as well as to teach the owners how to trim the nails, and training them to willingly enter a carrier.  This sets cats up for non-anxious vet visits and at home comfortably.

Board & Learn

 

While your dog boards with us, you will receive one hour training sessions each day they are here.  Training is discussed prior to boarding.

Play and Learn

 

If your dog passes an evaluation for daycare, this can be a great way to get training into your busy schedule!  While here for daycare with us, our trainer would take an hour out of their playtime to do a one on one training session.  They will then return back to daycare after their session.  Training is discussed prior to their daycare day.

Each type of training is sent home with homework
