Obedience Training

Basic Obedience (Clicker Training 101)

In order for your dog to be an enjoyable family companion, proper pet behavior is necessary. Experience has shown us that in order for your dog to be successfully taught, training has to be a fun, rewarding, and positive experience for everyone. Our objective is to motivate your dog to be eager and happy to please you, because he wants to, not because he has to.

Our training will achieve this goal through praise, positive reinforcement, clicker training, guidance, and most of all by making our training FUN for you and your dog. We will teach you how to motivate and guide your dog to learn obedience for life.

We are committed to humane and gentle training methods that will quickly and easily get your dog to perform the desired behavior and respond to a variety of commands willingly.

Your Pooch Will Learn: Place mat, sit, down, come, how to walk on a loose leash, target, drop it, leave it, wait at doors, name recognition and more. On week six we test every dog on AKC Puppy Star Skills.

You Will Learn: How to have fun and train your dog at the same time, along with how to handle common problem behaviors. We want to give you and your dog a way to communicate in a positive way when tackling everyday life.
