Board & Train, Day Train, Custom Training
A properly trained dog is dependent on the interest, commitment, and cooperation of the owner and family members. We will provide you the techniques and strategies that we use to set your dog up to succeed, and we set you up to be the safe, predictable partner your dog needs. Remaining consistent with the learned cues, and reinforcing what was learned is KEY to successful obedience training.
Board & Train: Your dog will board at our facility and get daily training/lessons for a 14 day period. We limit the number of participants in the program which allows us to provide personalized, one on one attention to each pet. Compared to other facilities that do a higher volume, we feel our approach to training results in transformations not available elsewhere.
We will teach your dog heel, sit, stay, down, come, and finish heel. We will also work on issues you may have such as jumping up on people, pushing out the door, pulling on the leash, etc. Your dog will learn to complete the lessons with and without distractions, one on one with a skilled, professional trainer.
At the end of the 14 day program you will work with your professional trainer for an hour session to go over, in detail, each cue learned. You will then have access to 30 minute weekly follow ups, all included in the price of the Board & Train program. You must be 100% on board with being educated on the cues and reinforcing them daily in order to have a successful, obedient dog..
Day Train:You will drop your dog off daily and pick them up each afternoon Monday – Friday only. Your dog will learn the same cues as with Board & Train, but will go home each night and return the following day for a 10 day training period. This includes 4 follow up lessons after the 10 day training period to continue to practice the cues learned.
Custom Training:We have other options for more challenging dogs, dogs that may need a refresher course, and in some cases, dogs that go home with the trainer. Speak to our Director of Training, Josh Harris, or a Velvet Snout associate for more information.
