A quick refresher and maintenance work for your pet.
|4 Private Lessons
A 4-week package of private one on one lessons with you, your pet, and the trainer covering obedience, control, or behavioral problems. Each lesson is one hour once a week for 4 weeks.
In-home sessions are recommended if you are having behavioral problems at home such as charging at the front door, jumping on people, chewing, being overly protective toward the house, or you simply have a difficult time controlling a hyperactive dog.
In-Lodge/Bootcamp training is recommended for dogs between the age of 4 months and 2 years! We offer a boarding and training package all in one! This training package is best for building a basic foundation for sit, stay, down, come, and heel.

Let an experienced trainer teach you the best manner in which to raise and train your puppy. We recommend private lessons for puppy training. One-on-one classes allow you to focus on all the details necessary for training a dog which you can control. It is necessary to develop a puppy which respects your commands, yet at the same time knows that you are a just and enthusiastic alpha dog. We will help you to discover play drives that will motivate your pup to work harder. Puppy classes are weekly 45-minute sessions with our training staff. Practicing with your puppy during the week is a requirement for achieving your goal in having an obedient and fun adult dog.
If you are serious about solving a behavioral problem or truly want off-leash control, this is the course for you. We strongly recommend this course for any dogs with an aggression problem toward people or dogs. This one-on-one class will provide a highly detailed understanding of the canine mind and training techniques. We highly recommend this course for clients who wish to title their dog in Novice, Open or Utility trails hosted by the American Kennel Club.
Dog Behavioral Problem Solving
Is your dog making your life difficult? Behavioral problems are the number one reason why dogs end up at the shelters. Come in for a private consultation and let our experienced Trainers help you with that annoying dog problem. In many cases a single private lesson is sufficient to give you the proper advice to solve or prevent the problem from escalating. Call for help on problems such as jumping, digging, escaping, chewing and more. We’re here to help so you don’t have to relinquish your dog.
Dog Obedience and Control
Obedience training will teach your dog to respond to the five basic commands. These commands are the foundation for any type of general obedience as well as competitive obedience. The commands are:
- Heel = Dog must walk close to your left or right leg without pulling on the leash.
- Sit = To sit on command and automatically when you stop.
- Stay = To remain in a location either at a sit or down.
- Down = To lay down with the elbows resting on the ground.
- Come = Run to the handler and sit in front or loop around into the heel position.
Control is training the dog to obey the five basic commands whether he wants to or not. You need control over your dog inside the house to stop him from jumping, running out the door, stealing items off counter tops among other behavioral issues. You will teach your dog that there is not an option when it comes to obeying your commands. Control will give you the ability to stop the dog before he goes after another dog. We can teach you the techniques necessary to obtain the ultimate control over your active dog.
If you are having behavioral problems at home such as charging out the front door, jumping on people, chewing, being overly protective toward the house, or you simply have a difficult time controlling a hyperactive dog, call for an in-home consultation. In-home sessions are recommended if it is difficult for you to drive to our training location, or if your dog only behaves badly on his property. Our in-home lessons are more than just a class. It is a dog behavior clinic. During the in-home our lesson professional trainer/behaviorist will address numerous topics and give you advice that will help you solve future problems. The average in-home lesson is approximately an hour and a half, so please be prepared to set aside enough time for this intense dog behavior clinic.
If you do not have the time to attend group or private lessons, or simply do not want to bother with the struggle of teaching him commands, we recommend in-lodge training only for dogs with no previous professional obedience training. We only accept dogs between the ages of 4 months and a year for this type of course. Your dog will learn the basic obedience commands on leash. We will teach your new dog all the basic skills, which are the following: heel, sit, stay, down, and come. Establishing a strong foundation is the key to having an obedient and well-controlled dog.
CGC—Canine Good Citizen Training
The American Kennel Club has developed a dog training program to establish a firm foundation for obedience and other AKC activities. This program is an easy way to teach your dog the basic obedience commands. It will also evaluate your dog’s sociability with other dogs and people. Many of the canines who participate will be capable of passing a CGC evaluation and receiving a certificate from the American Kennel Club as a CGC graduate. We are certified by the American Kennel Club as CGC Evaluators. For more information on this exciting program please visit www.americankennelclub.com.
