In Home Dog Training: Foundation, Distraction, and Manners

I tried training two puppies -Dogs 4 Life to the rescue.

Foundation, Distraction and Manner Training

Every family dog should have good manners inside and outside the home.  

Fox Valley's Tri City of St. Charles IL, Geneva IL, and  Batavia IL,   are full of people that want to include their dogs in family activities.  

Basic Dog Training- Foundation

Consider foundation training to be the building blocks upon which all dog behavior rest

 We understand that frustrated dogs can develop problematic  behaviors.  It is through the foundation and obedience training that we begin to eliminate these behaviors  as we set structural by establishing consistency with the family. 

 

Dogs 4 Life Focuses on a whole dog approach based upon the health physical traits, temperament, breed qualities, and mental ability of each individual dogs. This is why our in home dog training programs are so successful, we do not believe ever dog is the same and therefore each dogs training may differ. 


We address by strengthening the  basics commands: come, sit, down, and stay.  We apply these commands to situations that redirects unwanted behavior to a more suitable outcome.  


Each program is customized and tailored based upon the family training need.

This program is a total of five hours of training with a expert trainer to assist you, your family, and dog through the  training process.   The first lesson is two hours with the whole family, the remaining 3 hours are split into 1 hour lessons over a course of 7 weeks.  $450.00 in the Fox,

Distraction and Manner Training In your Home

We train dogs in your home

Here is were we begin to work on your dogs distraction and manner training at home AND in the community.


People often mistake group classes as socialization, which is not necessarily true, when in fact it is distraction training. Distraction training is when we have expectations of our dog to be able to accomplish a task without jumping on people when they meet, pulling the leash when they see a dog, coming when called if their is something better to sniff.  However, it can be very difficult for a dog to achieve this level of expectation if they do not have an understanding of their foundation commands. 


Before moving into distraction training, as we move the expectations higher your dog must complete our foundation program or can achieve the basics obedience training without cookies and have a 5 minute stay.  


It  is at this level of training  we can expect our dog to walking nicely on a leash as we eliminate pulling or lunging at  squirrels, dogs, people, or cars. We can also expect them to sit and  stay while being petted, to be able to greet your guest in your  home without jumping, and most importantly to come when called even when  outside.   


Each program is customized and tailored based upon the family training need.  


This program is a total three hours of training with a expert trainer to assist you, your family, and dog through the  training process.   Our training extends beyond the walls of your home, as we work in the real world environments. 

3  hours are split into 1 hour lessons over a course of 4-6 weeks. $285.00
