Accelerated Training Programs

Designed for those who would prefer we do the work of training your dog for you and then teach you what you need to know to maintain the skills your dog has learned. 

 

These are private sessions done at our training facility. You drop your dog off and we will train your dog for you, or, as the lessons progress, we will have you do more of the training with us. The number of days depends on the course you choose, and we can also customize it to suit your needs. We sometimes need to add a lesson or two if we find that your dog needs more training time. You will pick your dog up after each session – this is not a board and train program.

These programs are not suitable for dogs with severe dog and/or human aggression.  

Training equipment is not included in the price.
