In-Home Dog Training
We offer in-home dog training! A lot of our sessions are held in your pup's natural environment but we also do a lot of real-world training which consists of going for walks, going to parks, doing outings at Lowe's or Home Depot, etc. It's all about building the foundation of training first and then progressing past that!
Most sessions are 45 minutes -1 hour long. We typically meet with owners once per month, but can be flexible and find a good balance that works for you and your fur baby. Pet parents have different learning styles just like their animals do. Sometimes it is best to meet every few weeks, while other times once a month is perfect.
What is covered in training sessions?
Training topics include:
Anxiety and Fear Issues
**Reactivity is our passion!!!
We are balanced trainers meaning we utilize both positive reinforcement and training tools. With that said however, if you prefer one method over another we are totally fine with that and respect all points of view. We typically start out every pup with positive reinforcement and then introduce tools if needed!
The tools be use include e-collars and prong collars. We make sure each owner knows how to use their training tools safely and effectively. There's a lot of debate over using these in the dog training world, but we have found throughout many years of training that not only are these things safe, but we often see the best result using them! Our goal is to allow you to communicate clearly with your fur baby. Not every dog is a good fit for training tools!!!
In-person sessions where the owners do the training themselves:
When beginning in-person sessions (including you, your pup, and a trainer) you have 2 options:
#1. A single session.
#2 A package of 3 sessions.
This package is a basic obedience OR reactivity/ obedience combo package. Perfect for any fur baby of any age no matter what they are experiencing! The first 3 training sessions are the most important. This is where we throw a bunch of different tools at you for training your pup. You will have everything you need to continue training your own fur baby after 3 sessions. Anything beyond this is for continued learning and guidance. (This does not mean your dog will be fully trained! It means you will have a great foundation to continue training on your own IF YOU WANT TO.) We are happy to continue guiding and training for as long as you and your pup need! We all learn at different rates and from different experiences.
#3 Group class. 4 sessions that are an hour long. Classes are held at Swanson's Daycare in Western Shawnee.
Already completed a package before and want to keep training?
Individual sessions drop in price after an initial package!
We also offer 1 Hour zoom sessions!
Interested in a “board and train” option, but also really don’t want your dog to go stay with your trainer for weeks or months at a time?
Stay and Train Program: We come to you! This includes 15 hours of training (3 hours per day). Drive time is included in the 15 hours if we are going on any fieldtrips.
5 days of stay and train is our most common option.
Mini Stay and Train: We come to you and train for 3 hours per day. This is a great little boot-camp for basic obedience training and we offer 2 or 3 days.
Board and Train: We do not offer a traditional board and train but one that is in-home. Dogs are often stressed out in boarding facilities so we come to you. One of our trainers stays overnight with your dog and also trains them during the day. Its a win-win for everyone!
***BOTH STAY AND TRAIN AND BOARD AND TRAIN REQUIRE A FREE 15 MINUTE ZOOM CONSULTATION AS WELL AS A FREE MEET AND GREET. We want to make sure we are a good fit for you.
How do I know which program is right for me? A package of sessions is the best option for you if you want to set the foundation for your own dog. We provide you with the tools and practice to do so!
In the stay and train program we do all the training and foundation setting ourselves. This is the perfect option for individuals who have a very hectic lifestyle or for those who are not interested in teaching their dog the basics initially. We include tons of videos that will show you how to train your own dog and you also get to attend our group classes for free to continue to practice the new skills that you and your dog learn.
Group class is the perfect option for people that want to train their own pup, but they don't need individualized attention.
