The Complete Canine
Many families we work with express guilt for not being able to get their dogs the training or exercise they need due to frustration with "bad" behaviors.
Most of the dogs we work with have pushed their families past their breaking points. They end up accepting the unwanted behaviors, because it's easier than dealing with the mental chaos the battle of wills with their dogs bring.
A lot of times we find families avoid walks, outings or having guests over so they don't have to deal with the embarrassment and struggle their crazy pup can oftentimes elicit.
Can you relate to some or all of these feelings?
We understand! And we can help!
We've designed a program that takes the frustration and guess work out of teaching your dog the ins and outs of appropriate behavior.
Take a bit of a breather. Allow our skilled trainers to lay the foundation work with your dog, guiding you every step of the way on how to gain & maintain success with expansion and upkeep.
Phases of the Program
Meet with your trainer to go over gear, management, boundaries and more, before your pup enjoys individualized 1-on-1 training.
We'll make sure you're set up to get the most out of the Day Training Phase, for optimum success
-Two (2) Private Lessons of 40-60 minutes
In Home Day Training
Your dog works 1-on-1 with your trainer while you're at work, instilling the foundation behaviors needed your dog needs for everyone to be successful and happy. Behavior expansion & upkeep are often easier for families to accomplish with their dogs.
-Up to 16 days of 1-on-1 Day Training
Follow Through Lessons
Feel confident in expansion & upkeep of the foundation skills taught during the Day Training phase. Our trainers will ensure you have a complete understanding of the behaviors taught, so you can see success outside of the "school" setting.
-Three (3) Private Lessons of 40-60 minutes
