Puppy Training

Our puppy training experiences are unlike traditional training programs.  We focus on a healthy owner-puppy relationship while building foundations of obedience including sit, down, place, stay, heel, introducing recall and overall manners (no jumping, biting, etc.).  Beginning puppy classes as soon as you bring your little one home eliminates many future issues by learning good habits and commands early on.  We take the time to educate owners on proper dog handling, dog behavior and general knowledge about the breed they’ve chosen.

Hourly Training

Our hourly training programs are tailored to each individual dog and owner needs. We come to your home, listen to your particular needs and educate you on how to begin obedience and address behavioral issues. A polite and respectful dog begins with proper structure and then requires repetition and consistency to create a solid foundation of communication between you and your best friend.

Working in partnership with owners, we offer strategies for a well-balanced and behaved dog, demonstrate proper technique and then rely on owners to follow-through with implementing training.

PACKAGE OF 5 SESSIONS

Training your best friend to be well socialized and obedient amid distractions is a process.  Our package of five sessions is offered at a discount to save owners money.  We find that when owners commit up front to a continued training schedule, they are more successful and accountable in their training and their dogs are more attentive and respectful with them.  We meet once a week at your house, guide you through training and then you follow through for the week.  Our next appointment assesses the success of your previous weeks’ training and then guides you through your next objectives.  Having owners participate in training improves the relationship between dog and owner while encouraging bonding and respect.

Board and Train

Our board and train programs focus on obedience, socialization and re-integration.  We have listened to many clients who spent thousands of dollars sending their dog away for training only to find that when it returns, it’s not very obedient at all.  Our programs address that deficiency by teaching dogs a great foundation while with us, and then transferring that skillset to owners through re-integration with families.

Our programs offer everything from basic obedience to off leash training, K9 Good Citizen certification and doggie adventure excursions.  Additionally, a well socialized dog is a less reactive dog.  As part of all board and train programs, we socialize your dog to other dogs, people, the environment and then to particular experiences (moving vehicles, retail stores, reactive dogs, etc.). 

When learning new habits and behaviors, dogs need consistency, repetition and time.  Our board & train programs are a doggy boot camp for your dog.  We give them the constant training and structure that is essential for them to be successful.   

Our goal is for you to have the absolute best experience and relationship with your best friend.

We tailor each board and train to individual dog needs.  Camps focus on, but are not limited to:

Her program was exactly what Parker needed and now, if we run into challenges with him, it’s part of her program that she comes out and works with us to get him on the right track again.

Facilitated Training

We have the unique ability to utilize farmland in Burlington, IL.  That facility has acres for the dogs to exercise, a pond for water training and a small challenges course built to help dogs learn focus leash work, attention under distractions and many components of socialization.  We offer clients the ability to not just watch their dogs in action but to participate in many of the training components that their everyday living situations do not allow them access to.

Adventure Training

We love to be active with our dogs and we imagine there are others like us.  We encourage people to think early about the life they’d like to have with their dogs and then we tailor training programs to accommodate those life excursions.  For instance, if you camp with your dog, it’s incredibly beneficial to have your dog sensitized to campground sounds, traveling and greeting strangers.  Or, if you’d like to take your dog to a child’s baseball game, it’s advantageous to have your dog sensitized to people cheering, meeting strangers and knowing NOT to chase the baseball!  We tailor all adventure training programs to owner needs and would be delighted to hear what you’re planning with your best friend!

Room and Board

Our room and board programs offer your dog a home away from home experience.  While staying with us, your dog is treated like one of ours.  They eat with ours, play with ours and often participate in some of the daily training that happens with our pack.  Because we don’t kennel dogs for hours,  we have limited space for room and board so make sure to secure your dog’s reservation early!

We’ve been working with Andrea for a couple of months.  She’s taught US how to set appropriate boundaries and limitations for our dogs and educated us on the importance of having a leadership role so that Stella and Bella had clear expectations to follow.

Day Care

We all live busy lives and sometimes we don’t have time to be attentive to our four-legged friends.  Our daycare programs are a boutique service that makes your life easy when life gets tough.  We pick you dog up and then do any number of adventure/training experiences.  Following an “exercise, train, exercise” structure, your dog receives the mental and physical exercise they need to return home exhausted.  If your day is too busy to incorporate your dog’s exercise and training, we’re here to help you out.
