This is the course I would recommend if your dog has behavioral problem: chewing, housebreaking, aggression with people, jumping on you or others, not coming when called or pulling on the leash. This program is geared more to behavioral problems that can not be corrected in our boarding and training course. We will address each problem and show you how to correct the behavior. In this course we train you to train your dog. Each session is 90 minutes long and includes training books and lifetime phone consultation.

If your dog pulls on leash, does not come when called, does not sit or stay this is the course I would recommend. This does not correct behavioral problems such as chewing, housebreaking, etc. I would also recommend this course if you do not have the initial time to begin the obedience training and want us to lay the foundation. We work the dog everyday at the kennels and train him to Walk on a leash, Stay, Down and set the ground work for consistent Recalls from a distance. This course includes 2 training books, your 90 minute session at the kennels, boarding in our luxury cottages, 2 free playtimes with other friendly dogs and feeding your dog his diet.
PRICES: $900 FOR THE 8 DAY COURSE
$1300 FOR THE 13 DAY COURSE

Question: What is the best program for me?
Answer: If your dog has more behavioral problems it is best to do the Private Lesson. If your dog pulls you when on leash, does not come when called and doesn't sit and stay for any length of time, Boarded Training is best.
Question: If I choose the Private Lesson Program, what can I expect?
Answer: A Private lesson is good for those that have more problems related to chewing, housebreaking, aggression and jumping on people to name a few.
Question: I don't have the time to train. I want the trainer to lay the initial groundwork and then I can pick up and continue the training. What program should I choose?
Answer: The program for you would be Boarded Training. We lay the foundation for basic commands and at the completion of the program we work with you in a 90 minute session at the kennels.
Question: What can I expect if I decide to do the boarded training?
Answer: The commands are basic and include walking on the leash without pulling, sit, sit and stay and come and working at a distance on a 30 foot leash.
Question: Will I need to continue the training when my dog comes home after the Boarded Training Program or will he remain trained if I do not follow up?
Answer: Yes. The Boarded Training, whether it is the 9 day or 13 day program, lays the ground work only but without training on your part, when he comes home, he will regress back to were he was before you started the training. You don't have to set down an extensive routine. It is best to incorporate your training with walks and playtime and when your dog is in the house. Your dog will become more consistent on his commands through repetition, consistency, patience and time but only if you maintain the follow up training.
Question: What methods do you use for training?
Answer: We use the Halti instead of a choke chain, harness or collar. Choke chains are too aggressive and if not used properly can hurt a dog. The harness is good only for pulling sleds, tracking and pulling people. With the head harness, it guides the dog by the head and were the head goes the body follows. It keeps your dog focused on you and not the distraction. We also use food motivation. The 30 foot leash is for distance training and is the first step on eventually getting your dog off leash and come when called.
Question: Can I get by with Phone Consultation only?
Answer: Phone Consultation does well with problems such as mild chewing, house breaking and some aggression problems as well as separation anxiety. It is not good for obedience problems or extreme aggression with dogs or people.
Question: What does the Evaluation at the Kennels accomplish?
Answer: When I meet your dog I am able to evaluate your dog's problems in more detail and help answer any questions you may have and guide you in the right direction on what program works.
