Our Basic Obedience Course, generally for companion and family
dogs, takes approximately four to six weeks for most large
breed dogs. As with all of our programs, we recommend that
the dogs be at least six months of age before being brought
Your dog will be well socialized during his/her stay with
us. He or she will be taught to sit, stay, heel nicely on
a lead and come promptly when call. Whistle training is also
available. They are also taught, most importantly, not to
jump on people and the value of the word "NO".
Our owners are encouraged to come work with us and their
dogs after a couple of weeks. You, the owner, will be well
educated with drills that can and should be done as follow
up work at home.
Private obedience sessions can also be arranged, for those
who would like to do their own training with their dog while
staying at home. This is always done on an individual basis
with the dog and owner coming to work with the trainer for
about a half an hour as often as required and then having
the owner take the dog home for the actual training sessions.
