We begin the training in your home ensuring that your dog understands what you are asking of them without distractions and then move the training to outside and around your neighborhood to add in distractions you will encounter on a daily basis when walking your dog. Once your dog responds to what you consistently in spite of the things around them, we will then take a field trip to a dog friendly store or park to ensure your pup knows how to behave politely in public.

All work in the Intermediate level is done starting on a 10' long line, moving to a 20' long line and one session is off lead practice. The Advanced level is all off lead work. Prior to being accepted into the Advanced training, you and your dog will be given a short test running you through a series of exercises to demonstrate to the the trainer that they are completely under your control and not reactive.

You will receive all of the training offered in the Obedience & Behavioral Modification classes combined at a seriously discounted price. These sessions are more time consuming and intensive as we are working on many things during each session, but we take short, frequent breaks to allow your dog to release some pent up energy and regain focus and give you the opportunity to ask questions as well as regroup yourself.

We have found that many dogs only need one or two sessions to correct such things as chewing, rushing the door and jumping on people. This is a great alternative to our packages and classes, as you only pay for the sessions that you feel you need. These sessions are approx. 2 hrs long. The loyalty card applies to this service.
HALF DAY TRAINING
Accommodating Your Lifestyle
We know that sometimes you need a little more training than our single session gives you but you don't truly need a full training package either. We have found that our half days sessions are wonderful for things such as dog park manners, potty training, socialization skills, loose leash walking, brush up on basic obedience and more. These sessions last approx. 4 hours and can be done in your home, at dog friendly stores or parks or a combination. The loyalty card applies to this service.

Socialize & Exercise
We have heard so many of our clients say that they just do not have the time to get out and walk their dogs as often as they would like and we are here to help resolve this issue. We also know that many Behavioral issues such as chewing, barking and jumping, are often easily resolved with extra exercise. Our loyalty punch cards are great with this service & our multiple dog discount applies if you have more than one. Daily, Weekly & Monthly rate are available. *Please contact us for pricing*
WALK & TRAIN
Exercise & Training combined
We are so excited about this new service. There are many people who have told us that they want their dog trained but don't have the time to work with the trainer every week and they don't want to send them away for training. We have heard our clients and are now offering an alternative plan. We will take your dog out, walk them and train at the same time. This option is great if your dog needs work on any of their basic obedience skills or if they are leash reactive to other dogs/people. Our loyalty card applies to this service. If you have more than one dog that needs some extra training, our multiple dog discount applies.
