METHODS OF TRAINING:
- Our Reward-Based Training method works best for our younger puppy clients (younger than 5 months). We use marker (clicker) training and reward-based techniques.
- Our Combined Training method is preferred for our dog clients older than 5 months. Initial training takes place using reward-based techniques. Follow-on corrections are used with appropriate applications. Corrections are only given once the command is completely understood.

CONSULTATION:
We'll send one of our dog trainers to your home where we will evaluate your dog's drive and temperament. We'll discuss the preferred method of training and answer any questions you have. Consultations typically last 30-45 minutes at no charge.

TRAINING COMMANDS:
- COME - This is the recall command where your dog will come to you upon command. Perfect for when you're outside and it's time to go.
- SIT - Your dog will sit upon command. This is mainly used when you open the door and don't want them running outside or back inside.
- DOWN - Your dog will lie down upon command.
- OUT - Your dog will drop anything they have in their mouth. Used when playing fetch or when they have something in their mouth they shouldn't have.
- OFF - Your dog will get off anything. For example, the couch, the kitchen counter top, or people.
- PLACE - Your dog will jump or step on anything you point to. This works wonders when it's time to get your dog's weight at the vet.
- LOOSE LEASH WALK - Your dog will walk next to you without pulling on the leash. Great for those who want to enjoy a nice stroll around the neighborhood.

END OF TRAINING HAND-OVER:
At the end of the training session, we provide detailed handling instructions on how to continue obedience training. We go over trial runs where you are one-on-one with your dog giving the commands and ensure everything is done properly. We teach you when, where, and how to use each command. The hand-over typically takes a couple of hours since we try to make sure we don't leave with a question unanswered.
