Bootcamp - $2,500
Boot Camp is for the owner who is looking to have the best behaved dog in the shortest period of time. During the 2-week program, your dog lives with your trainer at their house and becomes part of the family. Throughout the 2 weeks, your dog will be acquainted with the e-collar and will learn all of the basic commands with heavy distractions in public places. If you are tired of your dog taking you for a walk, this is the program for you. You will be able to go anywhere after these 2 weeks with your dog while having increased structure, control, and communication. At the end of the Boot Camp, we will meet up for a couple hours so we can teach you how to be a dog trainer! We will teach you how to give the commands, the proper timing, and how to handle any situation.
The most important part – your dog’s personality will not change. This is one of the most common questions we get. You will get the same silly, quirky, loving dog back that you’re used to, but now with a new found level of obedience. The relationship between you and your dog is no longer stressful – guaranteed.
*Please note – this 2 week program will not address behavioral modification needs, such as severe reactivity and aggression*
*This training program is for dogs that are at least 5-6 months of age and over 15 lbs*
Private lessons are great for the owner who likes being more involved in the training and can dedicate some time each day to do the homework. *This training program is for dogs that are at least 5-6 months of age and over 15 lbs*
The Standard - $600
The Standard lesson program includes your e-collar training device and covers 4 private lessons. During these lessons, we will go over the basics you and your dog need to know to have top-notch obedience. These lessons will work on your dog’s Recall, Sit, Place, Down, Heel, and can dive further into any other problems you may have such as jumping or excessive barking.
The Master - $800
The Master lesson program includes everything in The Standard, but adds on 4 additional lessons. This program is typically best suited for dogs with more severe reactivity and aggression issues. Once you have completed the first 4 lessons, your dog should have a strong grasp of the basics while executing the commands with minor distractions. During the next 4 lessons, we can continue to practice the basics if needed, introduce new advanced commands, or venture to new places with high levels of distractions.
