All of our training is geared around pack leadership. Your dog will learn to listen to and respect you. Our training is not based on treats, but lots of body language and consistency....Language dogs understand.
Jump Start Program: Consists of one week of training board. Your dog stays with us for one week, in which they learn all of their basics on leash (sit, down, heel, stay, the beginning of come, and the hand signals for sit and down). Along with that they also learn basic manners (no jumping, pulling, barking for no reason, bolting thru doors, etc...). At the end of the week we spend an hour or so with you and as many of your immediate family members who can attend, explaining what you have to do to continue working with the dog. You should plan on 15-20 minutes a day of doing on leash lessons with your dog when you take them home. Cost for this is $350 for the week, which includes board and a 1 1/2 hr lesson at the end. *Please note, sessions run from any weekday to the following same weekday, ie....Monday to Monday, Tuesday to Tuesday, etc... End of sessions lessons are not available on weekends or holidays, except in rare cases, if available, with an additional charge.
Follow Up Training: Any time your dog is here boarding you may have additional training or just a refresher at a daily rate. You can have one day or as many as you want. You may also bring your dog at anytime just for this purpose, even if you aren't going out of town. Cost for this is $18 per day in addition to board charges. No additional free lesson is available with this follow up. If you need a lesson when you pick up, you must schedule it in advance and there will be a charge for a private lesson.
At the Kennel: Private lessons for you and your dog together are available at the kennel. The lesson runs from 30 - 45 minutes and is much more intense than your typical group lesson. Cost for this is $45 per lesson.
In Your Home: Private lessons in your home are available within a 30 minute commute from the kennel. The lesson runs from 30 - 45 minutes and is very intense. Most people using this option have problems at home that aren't resolving with regular lessons. Cost for this is $60 per lesson minimum, depending on distance, and is only available with advance scheduling.
GROUP LESSONS: Group lessons are available if there are enough requests to form a group. We typically only do group lessons during acclimate temperatures, as we do them outdoors. We do have a covered training area if it rains, but no heat or A/C in that area. If you would like to request group classes, please let us know and we will try to get a group together that suites your time and training needs. Group lessons run approximately 1 hour, though sometimes go over a little. Cost for group lessons are $100 per person/dog team, and include 7 lessons total.
