Finishing Behaviors / Proven Obedience

Your dog will stay with us for 14 days. During that time; we will teach them how to become a well-mannered and obedient dog through shaping and positive reinforcement. We will continue our leadership training which establishes patience and focus.

Most everyone can teach their dog to sit, lay down, etc but still are having other behavior problems like: jumping, bolting at the door, not coming when called, etc.  Jason will incorporate these obedience behaviors into the dog’s daily routine using leadership exercises. This is accomplished through body language, posturing, and redirecting behavior.  They will be introduced and conditioned to the E-Collar during this time frame.  You will then be able to enjoy your dog with a wireless leash.

At time of pick up, you will receive a private lesson to show you how to continue and maintain training success at home.

During their stay, he or she will have finished behaviors on:

  • Platform training
  • No jumping
  • Sitting politely at doors
  • Come command
  • Sit
  • Lay DownPlace
  • Loose leash walking - The sits will become longer and will wait for your release: no more bolting.

Includes: Training Platform, E-Collar, Training leash and a 1-hr. private lesson — $1,160

Basic Leadership

Your dog will stay with us for 7 days. During that time, we will work on patience and focus through leadership training.  Most everyone can teach their dog to sit, lay down, etc. but still are having other behavior problems like: jumping, bolting at the door etc.  Jason will incorporate these obedience behaviors into the dog’s daily routine using leadership exercises. This is accomplished through body language, posturing, and redirecting behavior. This is introduction only and your dog can be expected to do well on a 6 foot leash. Leadership has to be followed through at home or your dog will revert to his/her old ways.

 During their stay, he or she will be introduced to:

  • Platform training
  • No jumping
  • Sitting politely at doors 
  • Loose leash walking - The sits will become longer and will wait for your release: no more bolting.

Includes: Training Platform, Training leash and a 1-hr. private lesson — $589

Private Lessons

Private lessons are offered at our facility for you to work one on one with the certified trainer, Jason.  He will be showing you how to shape behaviors and how to continue success upon going home.  Private lessons allow the owner/handler to be very involved with the training process.

This training route does ask more of the owner at home to continue what you’ve learned at our facility.$50/hr

In Home Sessions

Jason, the certified trainer will come directly to your home and work with your dog(s) in their own environment.  This is very effective if you are experiencing problem behaviors in the house or yard.  Jason will start shaping new alternate behaviors and work with you to maintain success.

This training route does ask more of the owner at home to continue what you’ve learned after Jason has left.

The in-home sessions are per household, not per dog. — $130 Per Visit

 

Every Dog Can Be Trained

Think your dog is beyond training? Take heart! With patience and the right approach, any dog's behavior can and will improve with training. We use positive reinforcement and are sensitive to each dog's personality and ability to focus.

Before you give up and resign yourself to living with an unruly housemate, give us a call. One visit with Jason and you'll get hope back! A bit of training and you'll enjoy the dog of your dreams.
