Private Sessions

Private training is at my facility unless otherwise noted.

First time session is the basic 60 minutes and includes an evaluation of your dog(s).  Private sessions can address a variety of issues including but not limited to: jumping, barking, digging, mouthing, chewing, humping, counter surfing, crate training, potty training, leash pulling, leash reactivity, obedience, and mild aggression issues. I will leave you with a verbal training plan, recommended tools and home work. Without doing the home work there will be few results.

I offer “Life Skills for Dogs, Leadership for Owners” group classes. Class details listed below. All potential clients must go through a preliminary telephone consultation prior to joining any class. (Included in class fee)

Our “Life Skills for Puppies” group classes for puppies 8 – 20 weeks of age. Puppies learn basics such as sit, down, come, heel, place, no and break, through a reward system and owners learn how to correct unwanted behaviors such as biting and jumping. We will put a large emphasis on confidence building exercises during each class.      No classes at this time.

 Register at 1st class which is lecture only, No Dogs.

Our “Beginners, Life Skills for Dogs” is for dogs 6 months and older and will learn their basics, such as sit, down, come, heel, place, no and break. We then “proof” the commands while gradually adding distractions. I teach you how to effectively stop unwanted behaviors with corrections such as jumping, bolting and biting. Leadership skills for owners.        No classes at this time.

Board & Train Programs

We offer 14, 21 and 28 day Board & Train programs for dogs that need to learn skills for life. This is for dogs that either need to learn a foundation of basic skills, fine tune them and/or need to learn social skills in a controlled environment. All dogs will have a mandatory evaluation prior to entering our programs. Training for owners is sometimes done mid training program (depending on program enrolled in) and always upon completion.

I give your dog a good foundation in manners, impulse control, giving them an “off switch”, being respectful of people and other dogs. There will be various, daily, individual training sessions (these vary in time length depending on individual dogs needs and age).    According to the individual dogs needs and what they can socially handle, they will be allowed social time and/or worked around my balanced pack. We will go on field trips in the community to work on self control and confidence building.   A prong collar or Starmark collar and place mat are included in training package.

Social Camp ~

  • 3-10 days (3 day minimum, prior approval)~ $65/day , $60/day each additional dog in same household. This program is for current and past clients.

I give your dog the ability to be social around a balanced pack of dogs. We will walk on leash and off leash as a pack as well as other available activities during your dog’s stay with us. Your dog may choose to just exist around other dogs or actually engage in play. Either way they will learn proper dog etiquette with the help of my pack. A brief training session at pick-up will help you further understand your dog and their social needs.

All dogs will be required to have their Distemper, Bordetella and Rabies vaccines up to date or Titer tested and provide proof. Each dog must be free of external parasites and provide proof of flea preventative.

First step:  Please fill out a training questionnaire to be considered for our training program.

**This fee includes an evaluation at the beginning of the Board & Train program and a training session(s) for owners. These training sessions vary depending on length of dog’s training program. The first initial session we will show you all that your dog has learned and what your job will be, as their leader. In order to have ongoing success you will need to continue their boot camp training once they return home.  I offer regular updates during your dog’s visit that include pictures and videos of their progress, posted on Facebook, by text or via email.
