Puppy Training: Potty and crate training, jumping, chewing, nipping, and puppy biting.
Basic obedience/foundation training: Basic commands, come, sit, down, stay. Good manners, no jumping, counter surfing, door dashing, sit nicely while putting leash on and off, and for meal times.
Manners and Leash training: Distraction training, leash walking, meeting new people and dogs.
Dogs are lifelong learners and you can leverage these characteristics to train any dog, no matter their age or training background. Our obedience programs both strengthen your dog’s foundation and teach them manners that help resolve problematic behaviors.
Basic obedience/foundation training: Basic commands: Come, sit, down, stay, and place command. Other behaviors; meet and greet at the door, no counter surfing, door dashing, and more
Manners and Leash training: Distraction training is when we expect our dogs to behave both in and outside the home, coming when called even if there is a squirrel, not jumping on people when greeting, walk nicely and no pulling on leash and more.
