Personalized Training Protocols

There is no one-size-fits all when it comes to training. Every dog is an individual with different learning styles, preferences, and motivators. We take this into account for all training experiences.

We've partnered with dual-certified trainer, Brianna Hanc CCDT, CPDT-KA of Fluency K9 Dog Training to bring various group classes to our facility, from basic obedience all the way to advanced skills. If you're wanting help your pup with basic obedience, socialization, handler focus, and enrichment, check out our training options below!

Group classes are a great way to work your dog around a variety of distractions, leaving your dog not only with the knowledge of the class curriculum, but with real-life skills of how to focus on you around other dogs, people, and smells in a new environment. Our group classes are small, so you and your dog will still get one-on-one attention from our trainers while you work on the skills being taught. 

BASIC OBEDIENCE:

Basic obedience covers sit and down with implied stays, coming when called, place, leave it, and drop it. You will also learn heel position, loose leash walking, and polite greetings. Training around other dogs in a group setting is a challenge for a lot of dogs, so you’ll also be working on your dog’s focus on you!

5-WEEK CLASS

$215

INTERMEDIATE SKILLS:

Once you've mastered Basic Obedience, this is the next step! This class is a fusion between advanced level obedience behaviors and some fun, practical tricks that are not only cute but practical, such as; "go around", emergency "down" / stay in place, and nose targeting! Building off of concepts of Basic Obedience, working around more challenging distractions, working on generalization of previously taught commands.

4-WEEK CLASS

$195

#ALLTHETHINGS AKA THE DEETS

REQUIREMENTS

For group classes, we require dogs to be up to date on their Rabies, Bordetella, and DHPP vaccines.

There are no age or breed requirements. We train every breed and it's never too late to learn!

WHAT MAKES OUR TRAINING DIFFERENT

We believe that there is no one-size-fits all when it comes to dog training. Every dog is an individual with different learning styles, preferences, and motivators. We evaluate the handler's goals, the dog's needs, and their lifestyle together in order to create a fully personalized and effective training experience. We believe training goes hand in hand with mental stimulation, regular exercise, and clear and consistent communication.
