Training Academy

If you ever think to yourself any of the following, our Training Academy is the best option for you and your dog.

  • When can I make time for training?
  • My dog has behavioral problems that I don’t think I can fix.
  • Other trainers have tried and failed.
  • I wish my dog were already trained.

Our Training Academy is the fast track to accomplishing what you would like to get out of training your dog, with us doing all the work for you.

Puppy Kindergarten ($1400)

This is a 2 week academy that is specifically for puppies under 6 months that have had no previous training. The methodology we use protects the integrity of the puppy’s personality by using positive reinforcement and marker training.   Our goal is to build the puppy up and get him/her on the right track, learning behaviors we want as opposed to altering the innate character and temperament by using negative or correctional enforcement as so many other trainers practice.

Training will include…

Manners: No jumping, barking, digging, chewing, and nipping, waiting at doorways and sidewalks, getting in and out of vehicles.

House Breaking: We will create a regimen and teach your dog to go to the bathroom on command, and if you like, in a certain area.

Foundational Obedience and Commands: Creating behaviors such as sit, down, come, place, tricks(dependent upon your dogs natural ability)

Focusing Exercises: To teach your puppy to be aware of where you are and to pay attention to you.

Leash Walking: To not pull or drag on a leash but to walk nicely on a loose leash.

Socialization: People, dogs, and other animals.

Environmental Stressors: We will expose your puppy to ensure and build their confidence.

Customized Training: Anything not covered in the puppy kindergarten curriculum.

Off Leash Obedience ($4200)

This program is designed for those individuals that want On/Off Leash control of their dog in the yard or the home with or without the use of a leash. There is not a set time frame for this Training Academy, because we guarantee our dogs learn the off leash obedience in many different settings so for us to do this- we must take the dogs to many different settings multiple times and proof their abilities prior to training you with them.

This Academy usually lasts 4-6 wks depending on the dogs innate abilities and desire to please. If you’d like us to train your dog in Personal Protection, the course will take longer and there will be an additional charge based on which protection skills you are interested in- we can discuss this on an individual basis.

There is no difference in charge whether the dog stays a longer or shorter period of time for Off-Leash Obedience- we want you to be pleased with the results we deliver!

Manners: No jumping barking digging chewing and nipping.

House Breaking: We will create a regimen and teach your dog to go to the bathroom on command.
