Duration – 2 months

During this program, your dog will learn basic commands such as Heel, Sit, Place, and Here.  In addition to these basic skills, your dog will also be taught to walk on and off a leash as well as general "good manners", like not jumping on people, barking obsessively, etc.  


For the best results, your dog will stay at our facility for the duration of the 2 months, so the focus will be solely on the training.  We use a variety of methods including positive reinforcement, repetition, and collar conditioning.  Although your dog will learn a lot during these two months, we keep the atmosphere fun and exciting for them.  


Towards the middle of the second month we ask that you come out to see your dog's progress and to learn a few of the skills yourself.  Then, at end of the two months, you will come out for a session with us to help you transition your dog from our facility back to their home life.  We want your dog to succeed as much as you do, so we are always available after your program has ended to help with anything at all.
