1. In-home Single Lesson. 2½ hours - $275
Most popular lesson for basic obedience. (Herm Sprenger training collar not included.)
This is a one on one obedience course for dogs 16 weeks and older that takes place at your home.
In this lesson, you will learn how to problem solve the most common problems such as jumping, mouthing, nipping, pulling on the leash as well as guidance on other problems you may be experiencing.
We will build a three-fold foundation to establish the leadership that helps to give you verbal control with your dog.
Out: Training your dog to “out” from you, a situation or other people. This is one of the most important and useful things and all of dog training.
Stay: This is duration work and is done with distractions for extended periods of time. We start at 30 minutes with the down position. Duration work is absolutely necessary to teach your dog how to relax.
Heel: No pulling on the leash, marketing, or sniffing. Your dog should be slightly behind you and it's your presence that holds them, not the leash. Walking on a heel is an exercise in leadership. Plus a whole lot more enjoyable.
* Dogs with more serious issues may require additional training.
** Any additional In-home lessons are $225
*** Additional training can include, boundaries, place, recall and E-collar/Remote and off-leash training.
2. Puppy Program - $425
2 in-home lessons 1-½ to 2-½ hours each.
(Herm Sprenger training collar not included)
These lessons are geared for puppies 8 to 16 weeks old. Both lessons take place at your home.
The first lesson can take place right away and the second lesson when your pup is 16 weeks old and has all their shots.
With younger pups, we start with a 10 point puppy aptitude test to find out the temperament of your pup. We test for social dominance, touch, sound, sight sensitivity, and more. This helps us find out a little more about who they are and how best to move forward with the training.
In this first lesson, you will learn how to problem-solve some of the basic puppy problems.
Crying through the night
It’s important to start setting boundaries right away (no teeth on skin, no bathroom in the house, etc...) and to correct and hold your pup accountable to those boundaries in a way that is clear, not cruel.
The second lesson will include all the things that are listed in the In-home single lesson.
Any additional In-home lessons are $225
3. The Walk Doctor $225
(Herm Sprenger training collar included)
Is walking your dog a nightmare? Has it become something you dread instead of something you look forward to? We can change that in as little as two sessions.
With the right tools, strategies, and approaches, you can massively improve your walk and your bond with your dog.
The Walk Doctor Program consists of two 1-hour sessions. In these training sessions, we’ll assess, problem-solve, and develop an approach to help you and your dog get the great walk you have always wanted.
Dogs with more serious issues may require additional training
4. 5 Pre-booked One on One Lessons $800
(E-collar not included)
This program covers any issues on the walk (lunging, barking, growling, pulling, reacting to other dogs, etc.), as well as all of the basic commands on-leash – Sit/Stay, Down/Stay, Place, Come/Recall. We will also address behavior problems, such as jumping up, mouthing, nipping, counter surfing, or any other issues you might be experiencing.
The initial 2-hour session is comprised of a consultation, assessment, and hands-on training with you and your dog. You will begin to see dramatic changes in your dog’s behavior within this first session. The next four sessions are 1 hour each, where I will continue to work hands-on with you and your dog on all of the above behaviors. This program is done at my home in Upland (includes: 1 Herm Sprenger training collar). This training also included E-collar/Remote Collar training. If your goal is to have more freedom and dependability off-leash, inside and outside, this approach will give you great results.
5. Additional in-home training / Introduction to E-collar $225
Additional training and e-collar training can only take place after the completion of either the single in-home lesson or both puppy lessons. The total number of lessons depends on the temperament of your dog and the time you are able to work with them.
E-collar not included
Usually covered in this training is recall (your dog coming to you when called), “Place”, (having your dog go to a specific spot and lay down), Boundaries (not going out the front door or out of the front yard without permission). Off-leash training (working with the e-collar and not the leash).
6. Boarding $80/day
Boarding is only available for dogs who have previously been trained with us! And availability is based on my calendar.
Boarding includes walks and maintenance of any rules and training that your dog already has in place. All dogs sleep in an individual crate, inside the house.
