Not everyone has has the same idea on what makes a perfect companion, but mostly everyone can agree that a polite pet makes a great pet! Each of our on site Obedience Courses start with an evaluation. We will speak with you about any behavioral issues that you have seen and are concerned with, and we will watch the dog in the first few days to get a good understanding on their personality and body language to assist us in making a training plan. Through a reward system we teach each dog the basic commands SIT, HERE, HEEL and DOWN. The Basic Obedience will teach each dog, test each dog and continuing their learning at home will keep them engaged and always aware of their behavior!
This is newly added alternative form of our program, think of it as "taking your dog to work for the day". We have set times during the week to drop off and pick up your pup. During this time they will be evaluated, and receive obedience training and socialization. Not everyone wants to be parted from their pets for weeks at a time. Not everyone has time to train their pets on their own. This program offers the best of both worlds, but get ready... there may be homework!
With your dogs living with us each day, we will get to know your pup easily and start training with basic obedience commands and daily socialization. Also, YES.. this includes trips to all of our local "pet friendly" stores and locations!
Going on vacation? Will you be out of town for work? Once your dog is trained by us, we already have that bond and their trust. Let us care for and refresh your dog’s lessons while you are away!
It may seem expensive, but training puppies is a full time job! Crate training, House Breaking, Bite inhibition, Socialization and Introduction to Obedience. It is a full time job to instill good habits and keep bad ones from forming. Puppies learn at a young age to develop good bite inhibition and chewing habits, and let's not get started on the dreadful "potty training"! This program will take 5-6 weeks depending on your pup's response. Puppies become distracted easily, but with the methods used in this program, they will mature to be the perfect companion!
Once obedience is established, we will help you by concentrating on any behaviors or anxieties that you are uncomfortable with. Then we teach YOU how to reinforce their training, activities and schedule at home.
Occasionally, when they are ready and in season, we take our client Gun Dogs on hunts so that they are exposed to many different hunting scenarios that just cant be trained for.
We give your pup all the tools they need to be a successful hunting partner, but we do not claim to help improve your aim or "mad skills". Our dogs love their job, but if you miss, they will not be impressed and will let you know it!
