Our Private Lessons for The Basics includes teaching you and your dog Foundation Obedience for the best mannered pet.

Includes Basic Problem Solving such as:

  • Jumping
  • Leash Pulling
  • Mouthing
  • Barking
  • Housebreaking

Behaviors taught:

  • Sit and Stay
  • Down and Stay
  • Go to Mat and Stay
  • Recall – Come when called Reliably
  • Reliable Name Response
  • Loose Leash Walking

Your Dog will learn:

  • Reliable Name Response: A reliable name response is crucial to training any dog manners, getting and keeping attention under distraction, and overall safety.  It’s not good enough that your dog knows her name, the reliable response of looking at you when hearing the name is the goal!
  • Reliable Recall: A reliable recall is important for every dog in every situation.  For maximum safety, for maximum enrichment and for some off leash freedom a reliable recall is needed.
  • Sit & Stay, Down & Stay:  The positions of Sit and Down and getting your dog to stay in that position.
  • Calm & Polite Greetings: Your dog will learn to sit or stand calmly to be greeted, or while you greet another person.
  • Loose Leash Walking: Teaching your dog to walk next to you in any situation insures a lovely walk in the park, around the neighborhood or even a great experience at events or field trips.
  • Hand Target: Your dog will learn to put his nose on your hand on cue. This behavior can be used for many outcomes including preventing your dog from jumping or even keeping your dog in your personal space.
  • Leave It: Your dog will learn to not touch things that you ask him not to touch such as your dinner, your slippers or that porcupine on a walk.
  • No Jumping: Your dog will learn to Stand with 4 paws on the floor or Sit instead of jumping when excited.
  • Doggie Zen:  Teach your dog impulse control to prevent door bolting, stealing and more
  • Remaining calm for distractions: Teach your dog right from the start that she doesn’t need to bark or pull toward distractions such as other dogs, people, squirrels, etc.

You will learn:

  • How to develop your training plan for the day or situation.
  • How to manage rewards and reinforcement and not end up with a dog who “won’t perform until he sees the treat first”.
  • How to lure with food.
  • Leash Handling.
  • Foundation Training Techniques including Games and Reward Strategies that will keep your dog WANTING to learn.
  • How to use a Stop & Body Block.
  • How to recognize what your dog’s learning needs are.  If you have said “my dog is stubborn” or “my dog isn’t food motivated” or other reason your dog may be difficult to train, you will learn how to solve those puzzles to promote great training experiences.
  • How to teach a physical gesture for a cue and how to teach a verbal cue.

Perfect for Puppies and dogs of all ages. 

No Aggressive Dogs, No Reactive Dogs.

All training plans are provided as a package. Single training lessons are only provided once your initial training plan has been completed.
