PUPPY RAISE AND TRAIN PROGRAM (2-5 months old)
In 4 short weeks you will develop the hands on experience to make your puppy, a happier, more relaxed, more attentive, and less destructive member of your family. Learn to master your puppies, potty training, chewing, play biting, proper play & exercise, as well as off leash basic obedience commands.
LEVEL 1 – OBEDIENCE – LEASH TRAINING AND MANNERS (5 months and older)
Very similar to the reigns of a horse, a dogs leash can be a very effective communication tool. With out the proper leash training it is very easy for our dogs to develop a LOVE/HATE relationship with their leash. It is crucial that our dogs do not look at there leash as something that ” holds them back” but more as a tool that communicates to them what we want from them. In this class you will learn how to teach your dog to walk perfectly at your side, stay focused on you, and respond verbally to all their basic obedience commands.
What makes this class vastly different from other courses in town, is the emphasis we put on distraction work. Practicing around distractions teaches our dogs how to make decisions out in the real world. This lays the foundation for our next level of training which includes long term patience and impulse control.
LEVEL 2 – OBEDIENCE – PATIENCE, DISTRACTION, AND IMPULSE CONTROL (must pass Level 1 test)
LEVEL 2 is filled with a lot of surprises. This class is designed to condition and strengthen our dogs decision making skills around “Real World Distractions”. People, other dogs, skateboards, and noises are just a few of the distractions that are being tackled in this series. We introduce obedience at farther distances, in preparation for several off leash training concepts. Learn to refine your dogs timing, speed, and consistency with their verbal commands. This course is perfect for students who would like their dogs to be perfect in public places, hiking trails, and other stimulating environments.
The level of obedience taught is comparable to that of a therapy dog and service dog and can actually be considered as a preparatory course for the AKC Urban Canine Good Citizen test, and the Service Dog Public Access test.
