Our Dog Training Packages

Dog Training in Your Home/Behavior Modification:

**Note: In cases of 2 dogs, both dogs will be trained simultaneously or 30 minutes for each dog.

Package I:

Basic Obedience: Six one-hour sessions.

Training: Following and learning voice commands and hand signals such as “sit”, “stay”, “down”, “come” and “heel”. All of this training is done on leash.

  • “Sit”:  Voice and hand signal.
  • “Stay”:  To achieve control of the dog while standing, opening doors and crossing the street while on the leash.
  • “Down”:  With a hand and voice command, the dog will learn to lay flat on the floor until given a different command. Note: The length of the command will depend on dog’s age and physical capabilities.
  • “Come”: This command teaches the dog to come (return to handler) and is the foundation of recall.
  • “Heel”: This command teaches the dog to walk on the leash at the left side of the owner and respond to auto stops.

Package II:

Intermediate Obedience: Eight one-hour sessions (twice a week)

Intermediate Obedience:
This includes all basic commands in addition to “place” commands, remote commands and a controlled “stay”. This training will be done 50% on leash and 50% off leash.

  • “Place”: A designated area of rest and control where the dog must remain. (Example: The dog will remain on the doggie pillow while owner is eating and working in home office)
  • “Free Walk Heel”: This command will allow the dog to walk next to the handler in a free form remaining within five feet of the owner off of the leash, while still being responsive to directional changes.
  • “Long Stay”: The dog will learn how to “stay” up to 2 – 3 minutes from multiple distances. This will allow the handler to have better control and allow the owner to have more confidence with the dog.
  • “Off Leash Come”: This time we will use the foundation and extend it to the next level. This includes a 15 -30 feet “come”.
  • “Remote Down”: Raising your hand within the dog’s line of vision and/or giving a voice command and the dog responding to the “down” command from 15-30 feet away.

Package III :

Advanced Obedience and Socialization: Twelve one-hour sessions (twice a week)

Advanced Obedience:
This training is conducted all off leash and includes long distance commands around live distractions and temptations with fast recalls. Socialization and control techniques, drills and utility session are all a part of this advanced package. Reinforcement of all basic and intermediate commands will also be incorporated.

Socialization/Control I:
This includes outdoor sessions conducted at a local park, store, dog park or desired neighborhood. This session will be performed mostly by the trainer to ensure that both the dog and handler have an opportunity to learn. The trainer will teach the dog how to behave and handle different types of distractions. The handler will have the opportunity to practice during the last 15 minutes of the session. Examples of distraction include: other dogs, people, children and animals.

Socialization/Control II:
This session will mostly be conducted by the handler, side-by-side with the trainer. The trainer will have the opportunity to evaluate both behavior and handling techniques learned and practiced by the owner from the previous session.
