Basic Obedience (4 weeks)
If you are a first-time dog owner or just looking for to improve your relationship with your dog. Our Basic Obedience class is for you! There is a lot more to having a good working relationship with your dog than just teaching it how to do a hand full of commands. We teach you how to become the most important part of your dog’s life as well as teaching you how to train your dog. We pride ourselves on the education that dog owners receive as much as what the dog learns. This kind of education is what will help you be successful with your dog, which you would not get when enrolling your dog in a much more expensive Board and Train. At the end of the day, it is not about what we can get your dog to do for us, but what you can get your dog to do for you.
We offer this program in two different formats:
First is our 1-hour private lessons. Here you will get one on one instruction on how to work with your dog. Lessons are one hour a week for 4 weeks.
Second, is our Day camp program. This allows us more time to work with your dog, which in turn means that when you take the dog home at the end of the day, they will be more proficient at what we have worked on that week, and you will spend more time reinforcing commands rather than teaching them.
