Our obedience training program is for dogs of all breeds & all ages.
Regardless of whether he will be a performance dog competing in hunt tests, a hunting buddy or a family companion it is important to teach obedience.
By working with your dog on "self control", we can address problems that you are having with your dog at home. We believe that a properly trained dog is happier and healthier throughout his life. Obedience training helps make dogs more manageable and responsive to commands. An obedient dog is a joy to own and a rewarding family companion. We will instruct you on how to discipline and work with your dog in an organized, step-by-step program.
We offer training & assistance with anxious, fearful and aggressive dogs of all breeds. By working with and spending time one on one with your dog we can generally get to the root of the problem.
"It is our goal to help your dog become a calm and submissive member of your family."
We encourage the dogs to reach their full potential with praise and training exercises that are fun.
For most of the obedience training, we use a 20 foot check cord and choke chain collar. We use pinch collars for larger, strong dogs that are more difficult for their owners to manage. The remote electronic collar (as needed) is used to reinforce commands and is especially effective in teaching dogs to come when they are called, under all conditions, regardless of distracting circumstances. The dogs are worked daily with a time outdoors to play, swim, or retrieve. We are hands on with our clients, we encourage you to come out while we are training and be apart of your dogs' progress.
After daily training each dog is allowed to unwind on one of our 6 dog yards. The dogs are out and about most all day every day. We put them in their kennels at dinner time and for the night. During inclement weather the dogs are brought into our indoor kennel building, where they can enjoy some free time or rest. Unlike other training kennels, we do not force the dogs to stay in a enclosed kennel all day. We believe that they need free time to unwind and just be a dog.
It typically takes a minimum of 2 months to have a dog completely obedience trained.
***After your dog's training is complete at our kennel, we will gladly offer in home follow up or assistance if needed.
