Obedience Training

Dog Obedience Training

Our obedience training classes are broken down into our basic obedience training curriculum and advanced obedience training curriculum. Additionally, we offer a combined package that includes both basic and advanced obedience training.

What is the Basic Obedience Training?

This includes the Off-Leash K9 Training E-Collar (similar to a TENS unit) which all of our dogs are trained on, a 20-foot leash, and includes all FOUR lessons for $600.00 (or 3 monthly payments of $200.00). The e-collar we use has a two-year warranty, it is completely waterproof, and has a range of 0.5 - 1 mile depending on the model being used, which will be brought to your first lesson along with the 20-foot leash. By the end of this package, your dog will be able to be taken outside with distractions listening on command.

Basic Obedience Training Curriculum

This program is designed to deliver the following, all of which can be done off-leash:

Sit and Extended Sit (Sit/Stay)

Sit and Extended Sit (Sit/Stay)

Down and Extended Down (Down/Stay)

Down and Extended Down (Down/Stay)

Loose Leash and Off-Leash Walking

They will walk right beside of you on a leash.

Loose Leash and Off-Leash Walking

Come (outside, off-leash, with distractions)

Come (outside, off-leash, with distractions)

Place and Extended Place

This means to jump up and sit on any object you point to on command and stay there until released. Though the "Place" command goes deeper than just sitting on an object, as well. It's about giving you the freedom to do normal things around the house without having to put your dog away (or having them be underfoot), like eating food, cleaning, having company over, door manners, etc.

The "Place" command becomes an "off-switch" for your dog, creating the intention of a calm, balanced mindset. It has helped many dogs with separation anxiety and reactivity issues.

Place and Extended Place

Off

This means to not jump on me or anyone else; this is your all-encompassing "NO" command.

Off

* Extended sit, down, and place means your dog will REMAIN in the down, sit, or place position until YOU tell them to "break" (release them).

What is Advanced Obedience Training?

Your dog must finish our Basic Obedience Package before we will enroll them in our advanced obedience training, of which we offer numerous training opportunities!

What if I want to enroll in basic and advanced training? Are there any discounts?

We have a Basic and Advanced Obedience Package for those who really want their dog to be rock-stars! This includes 8 lessons for $900.00 (or 3 monthly payments of $300.00). You save $100.00 by opting for the Basic Obedience Package and 4 Advanced lessons up-front!

Why should I invest in this training?

It's certainly possible to find cheaper training solutions elsewhere, but oftentimes big class settings do not provide the environment required for a dog to learn obedience properly. In our experience, intensive one-on-one training is the most effective way to ensure that your dog walks away with all of the basic skills we listed above.

Unlike many other training facilities, we ensure dogs are trained to follow commands in public with distractions, not just in a classroom setting where treats are around.

Additionally, we include a Lifetime Support Guarantee, provided you uphold the training we set in place to the best of your ability.

Other training facilities said my dog is "untrainable", why are you any different?

Believe it or not, we get this a lot. Many training facilities and classes, unfortunately, don't have the resources or knowledge to train extremely stubborn or difficult dogs. However, we believe every dog is trainable and deserves a chance, and we've sent home happy well-trained dogs previously thought "untrainable" to many homes.

Still not sure? You don't need to listen to us, see what our customers on Facebook, Google, or our reviews section down below have had to say.

What if I have some more questions?

You're always welcome to send us a message using the Messenger bubble in the corner, send us an email, or give us a call or text, we would love to hear about your dog and answer any questions you have about the program.
