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 countertops 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.

Puppy Training

Let an experienced trainer teach you the best manner in which to raise and teach 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 that 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 lessons are Private Lessons for weekly 60-minute sessions with our trainer. Practicing with your puppy during the week is a requirement for achieving your goal of having an obedient and fun adult dog.

Private Lessons

If you are serious about obedience, solving a behavioral problem, or you 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.

Dog Behavioral Problem Solving

Is your dog making your life difficult? Behavioral problems are the number one reason why dogs end up at 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.

In-board Maintenance Training Program

WHERE THE ELITE DOGS ARE TRAINED
  1. 1Reinforcement of obedience skills: Just like humans, dogs can forget or become rusty with their obedience commands over time. By enrolling your dog in our maintenance training program, our professional dog trainers will reinforce their obedience skills, ensuring that they respond promptly and reliably to your commands.
  2. 2Consistency and reliability: Consistency is key when it comes to dog training. Our trainers will work with your dog regularly during their stay, maintaining a consistent training routine and reinforcing the desired behaviors. This helps to ensure that your dog remains reliable in following commands, even in your absence.
  3. 3Mental stimulation: Dogs thrive on mental stimulation, and training provides an excellent opportunity for them to engage their minds. Our maintenance training program will challenge your dog’s cognitive abilities, keeping them mentally sharp and preventing boredom during their stay.
  4. 4Socialization opportunities: While staying at our canine vacation resort, your dog will have the chance to interact with other dogs and people. Our trainers will incorporate socialization exercises into the maintenance training program, helping your dog become more comfortable and confident in different social settings.
  5. 5Stress reduction: Dogs can experience anxiety or stress when they are away from their owners or in unfamiliar environments. Training sessions provide a structured and positive outlet for your dog’s energy, helping to alleviate any stress or anxiety they may be feeling during their stay.
  6. 6Continued progress: If your dog has already undergone obedience training, our maintenance training program will help them build upon their existing skills and progress further. Our trainers will work with your dog individually, addressing any specific areas that need improvement and fine-tuning their obedience abilities.
  7. 7Peace of mind: Knowing that your dog is receiving professional training and care during their stay can give you peace of mind. You can trust that our experienced trainers will provide a safe and nurturing environment for your dog, ensuring their well-being and helping them maintain their obedience skills.

By enrolling your dog in our maintenance training program, you can ensure that they receive the ongoing training and support they need to stay obedient and well-behaved. Contact Fon Jon Pet Care today to learn more about our program and how it can benefit your dog during their stay at our canine vacation resort.

AKC SCENT WORK Training Classes!

Build a Positive, Stimulating, and Confident relationship while training in Scent Work.

Logo AKC ScentWork

What is AKC Scent Work?

The sport of Scent Work is based on the work of professional detection dogs [such as drug dogs], employed by humans to detect a wide variety of scents and substances. In AKC Scent Work, dogs search for cotton swabs saturated with the essential oils of Birch, Anise, Clove, and Cypress. The cotton swabs are hidden out of sight in a pre-determined search area. And the dog has to find them. Teamwork is necessary: when the dog finds the scent, he has to communicate the find to the handler, who calls it out to the judge.
Ask about our new training classes to help reach you and your pet the ins and outs of Scent Work! No experience necessary!
