Good Puppy Program

Just a cutie. 10wk old pit bull x husky mix. Learning to stay on place.

This program can start as soon as you get your puppy. The foundation period is the most critical if you are lucky enough to have your puppy at this age. This is where your dog will go thru many different stages of fear and learning in a short period of time. Socialization at this age is critical for many dogs and when you are busy with work and life and allow the puppy to make puppy mistakes it sets them up for behavioral problems later in life that you are going to have to correct. This program lays the foundation for our later programs as the puppy matures. Remember this is FOUNDATION obedience that sets them up for success for later obedience when they are more mature. They are babies at this age. We must keep all the training VERY positive. Examples of what we focus on with puppies this age are…

  • Socialization
  • Crate Training
  • House Manners
  • Respond to Name thru Positive Reinforcement
  • Learn to be Handled in a Positive Way ( Nail clipping, Tooth Brushing, Bathing )
  • Crate Games ( Teaches the dog to go into their crate and relax. Reduces chances of anxiety when you leave home. )
  • Puppy Obedience ( Introduction to Leash Walking, Sit, Down, etc. )
  • Place / Climb / Go to your bed ( We teach your dog to climb onto and stay on a dog bed or elevated cot etc. This is a great training tool to use when you have someone come to the door or friends and family over and you don’t want the dog on top of everyone or if you just want the dog to be out of their crate in the house. Think of it as a crate without walls. )
  • Place Cot, Leash & Collar Included
  • Grooming ( Bath & Nail Trim )

Good Dog Program 

Many times people think of obedience training as just formal training they won’t ever use but they don’t realize it goes hand in hand with every day problems such as counter surfing for food, barking, separation anxiety etc.. By forming a training relationship with your dog and a proper way to communicate with them rather than just saying NO to everything your dog does wrong and confusing them. We will teach them what to do so they will understand what your asking of them. Below are examples of what is most common in our basic obedience package. This is usually completed in 2 weeks in our Board & Train Program.

  • Sit
  • Down
  • Stay
  • Loose Leash Walking w/ Auto Sit ( NO MORE PULLING )
  • Wait At Doors
  • Leave It
  • Greet People without Jumping
  • Place / Climb ( We teach your dog to climb onto and stay on an elevated dog cot. This is a great training tool to use when you have someone come to the door or friends and family over and you don’t want the dog on top of everyone or if you just want the dog to be out of their crate in the house but contained in 1 area. Think of it as a crate without walls. )

Dream Dog Program

This program is for those who want their dog to have all the manners of the Good Dog Program with the addition of OFF LEASH control of their dog. If you have a VERY hyper and uncontrollable dog but dont need off leash obedience this program is still ideal for you.  Your dog will need training on many distraction levels such as other dogs, cars, adults, and children to complete this program. They will have to have focus on you and respect your commands. You will have the freedom of allowing your dog to be off leash yet still obey their basic obedience commands and additional commands as well if you wish. We will need to go over your wish list of commands you would like your dog to know and we can custom tailor the program for you also. This program takes 2-3 weeks..

  • Everything from the Good Dog Program ON LEASH Plus the additional Advanced Commands below
  • Off Leash Heeling
  • Solid & Reliable Off Leash Recall every time you call your dogs name regardless of distractions
  • Load up into your vehicle
  • Remote Training Collar & Place Cot Included ( 300.00 Value )
  • Weekly Video & Picture Updates of Progress
  • ALL Training Guaranteed for the Life of the Dog
  • Free Refresher Training During Future Boarding
  • Grooming ( Bath & Nail Trim )

Behavior Modification

Behavior modification training helps solve small problems before they become even bigger problems. In some cases they are already a fairly big problems such as aggression & resource guarding. We can work to target single and multiple issues ONLY as well. Not everyone is interested in their dog walking on a loose leash as they don’t leave the home or yard with them. SO we understand just wanting to fix individual behaviors to allow you and the dog to live a much better life at home. Many of the common problems seen in dogs that require this type of training are….

  • Separation anxiety
  • Aggression
  • Chasing cars
  • Destructive behaviors in the home
  • Counter Surfing
  • Biting and Nipping
