This is a very High Demand Course and we attempted this many years back but we ran into a problem….
This training idea/style requires lots of homework for the owner as they are given the tools and knowledge on how to do the work and then it is up to them to get the job done in order to progress to the next level . For 20 plus years I have been doing strictly in-house training but due to popular demand we have designed a course to help graduate you and your dog to the next level as the two of you progress together with the goal of making it to our group sessions. Once you make it through the first three levels we will then invite you to a group session so that when you attend all of the dogs are really close to the same level of obedience and you can then learn from watching others and have great group and distraction work session.
We will lay out our entire 3 step program on your first visit and then the two of us will get to work. We spend an hour with you addressing quite a few things that will help you to get the foundation of obedience work going with you and your dog.
On your second session (step 2) we will do an evaluation to see if things are where we need them in order for you and your dog to move forward. From there we will work on the next steps OR troubleshooting the hangups that you are having in getting progress out of your dog.
On your third step we will go over distraction dog work and adding additional commands to your program. Each session is about an hour with homework lasting 1 to 2 weeks. We don’t hold anything to the minute we simply want to make sure that you get all of the information that you need to try to work with getting your dog to the next level.
No one is allowed to attend a group session until they have completed the first three sessions and we feel that they are ready to attend. We do this so that when you come to the group session the dogs are close to the same level of training and we can actually help every one to progress their dogs at once along with great distraction dog work. We have heard horror stories of attending group sessions with every level of obedience that one can imagine and the entire time one or two really out of control dogs get all of the attention. This is what we avoid by following our program to the T.
THIS IS A MUCH CHEAPER OPTION THAN OUR IN HOUSE TRAINING PROGRAM. THIS IS BECAUSE WE GIVE YOU THE KNOWLEDGE AND TOOLS TO CONDUCT THE TRAINING, HOWEVER, IT IS UP TO YOU TO DO THE WORK. THE SUCCESS OF THIS PROGRAM LIES IN YOU, THE OWNER. IT WILL ONLY BE SUCCESSFUL IF YOU FOLLOW THE PROGRAM AND PUT THE HOURS IN WITH YOUR DOG.
