Private Lessons (One-On-One Training) Clients Home

In your home, your dog will not only learn the basic necessary commands such as Sit, Down, Place, Heel, and Recall, but also learn a calm state of mind. This is needed so you are able to have your dog around lots of distraction. We will work with the concept of  the 3 D’s: Distance, Distraction and Duration, all of which allow you, and your dog, to be able to really enjoy the world around them and understand impulse control. Keep in mind that a lot of the 1/1 training work is going to be about 90% you, and 10% us, the dog trainer. We will show you the basics and the fundamentals and you work with your dog daily to get the results you want. Must follow through to get results.

Puppy Class Information

Introduction to what to expect with your new puppy

Private In Home Training- 60-90 minute sessions
Puppies 8-14 weeks of ag
e

​​

We are glad you decided to enroll in our puppy class.  The puppy class is  the most important class you will attend with your dog,because it sets the foundation for forming good habits for a lifetime relationship between you and your puppy, that in  no time grows to be the adult dog. By setting the foundation you will have a well-balanced dog and a peaceful home.

The timing between 2 and 4 months is short, but very important. Broken down into behavioral phases, this is a critical time of the socialization period.  Time for intense bonding, this is the time when you need to allow your puppy to soak up as much of the world as possible. The socialization is the foundation fore his/her life. 

So what is learned in this early time (the rules)will be the basis for all knowledge in the future. This includes teaching the puppy that you and all other humans in the home are the leader, so it is important to understand the leadership skills required for you to have a successful trained dog. If you do not take the role of the leader the puppy will assert herself/himself as the leader and dog will be difficult to train and bad behaviors will develop.

COURSE DESCRIPTION 

The class is designed to teach you effective management and handling skills and to develop a puppy’s confidence, attention, response and respect for its family. 

It is so exciting what your puppy can learn from a puppy class.!


Getting a new puppy is exciting, but a little scary at times when you are not sure where to start; especially if you have never owned a dog. From the very moment you bring your puppy home it is important that you set boundaries. It is important for your puppy to learn good bite inhibition, which means teaching your puppy to have gentle jaws. Puppies need to build their confidence and social skills for interacting with other dogs and people, to enjoy being handled by strangers.  

In this program you and your puppy will learn:

1. Feeding schedules

2.  Crate training

3.  How to house break your puppy

4.  How to socialize your puppy introducing sights and sounds

5.  Wait for food  

6.  Sleep schedules

7.  Chewing

8. Rules, boundaries, limitations

This program is perfect for puppies 8 to 14  weeks of age. Puppies at this age are too young to fully benefit from obedience work, but are still very impressionable and able to understand many positive things through being consistent with routine and repetition! They may not be able to hold an attention span like the adult dog, but beginning with some basic training will start your puppy off right.

 By teaching the above commands your puppy will learn to respond quickly and reliably to verbal cues to come, sit, lie down, stand and stay in the midst of heavy distractions and without the reliance of training aids. This program gets things in motion for your puppy to go right into basic obedience training.

The purpose for the board and train programs are for dogs  that need the one on one constant training, exhibit anxiety, fear anxiety, dog aggression, fear aggression towards other dogs and people as well as structure and obedience.


You will bring your dog to my facility and  your dog will be trained in its basic obedience commands.  If interested we will work with your dog to be off-leashed trained. To do this we will train with an e-collar to have your dog be successful. The program is effective and  includes day to day structure, rules, socialization, and supervised play.


This program includes a 1 hour consultation on the first day, at the end of the program plan to stay for a 1-2 hour follow-up where we will transfer all of the information, techniques, and strategies to you to insure continued success, then a 1-hour follow-up  two weeks later along with a 3 month follow up.

To ensure that you are successful  we pick real life situations for your dog that teaches him to stay focused on you, walk at your pace, learn how to ignore distractions . All breeds are welcome regardless of size or past history.​ 

If your dog has real severe aggression issues,  I will recommend a trainer that works with red zone cases on a day to day basis.

E-Collar Training (Off-Leash)

 

We specialize in state-of-the-art, low-level, communication-style E-Collar training. Our E-Collar program is very effective and the most soft and gentle remote training to communicate with your dog.  The collar has different levels, but I have found low level pressure on and off to the dog is most effective and the most humane approach to dog training. This does not mean all dogs are trained with this tool, but the option is available or if needed we will train you to use the collar..  This collar is a great tool for dogs to be trained off leash and found to be most effective for dogs that are going deaf or are deaf.  Deaf dogs need to be retrained on hand signals and different ways to approach them, so they do not feel threatened.  There is a vibration mode that works great to train deaf dogs on this tool.  

Each dog that is trained with an e-collar we us top-of-the-line!  Mini Educator E-Collar, as well as a Herm Sprenger prong/training collar. The Herm Sprenger are the best prong collars on the market. *Prices do not include e-collar or prong collar. The e-collar ranges in price from $179.00-$289.00, depending on the needs of your dog. 

My name Is Queso! I was really excited when my owner trained me on the e-collar!! Freedom!
