Great Start Program

Is your dog really a good dog, but just needs a little help listening? Jumps on guests (because he’s excited!)  Maybe runs out the door, and doesn’t always come when called ? Maybe he steals food or pulls on the leash when you walk him. Wouldn’t it be nice if he could greet guests politely, go for a walk without pulling, or stay on his bed while you eat dinner? Then the Great Start Program is for you.

This program includes:

Basic good manners around your home and yard.

Sit/Stay
-Down/Stay
-Come When Called
-Calm Leash Walking
-Leave It! (Drop my sock!)
-Polite Greeting Guests In Your Home
-Go To Your Bed (even when you’re eating or have guests.)

Three Private Lessons (one-on-one coaching) in your home for help teaching the skills and help you master the techniques to insure your dog listens to you as well as to the trainer.

A Three Day Intensive “Jump Start” where the most practical important obedience commands* are trained and reinforced by me at Coach For Canines so that you can  skip the hard part and just practice with support and help after skills are in place.
Or “Day Train” Option
Your dog comes to “day school” in the morning and is brought home in the afternoon, having had private training lessons, supervised socialization and exercises well as snacks and a nap.
Two Follow up Private lessons to reinforce the jump start training

Good To Go Program

With this program not only will he listen around the house, but will also listen around distractions – like in public and when you have company over.

Or maybe there are just several things that you could use some help with… barking, chasing animals, lunging at other dogs on leash, not coming when called when “distracted,” not able to settle and behave around distractions in public, jumping, stealing things from the counters… whatever it is, we can help!

Your dog will learn to listen off leash and be able to sit, stay, lie down ( even at a distance) on command, come when called with distractions and walk nicely at heel

-“Place” The ability to send your dog to her place to stay no matter what

This program includes:

Three Private Lessons (one-on-one coaching) in your home for help teaching the skills and help you master the techniques to insure your dog listens to you as well as to the trainer.

A two week board and train at Coach For Canines where the skills are trained and reinforced in a safe environment around other dogs and animals as well as in public

Three Follow up Private lessons to reinforce the lessons learned during the board and train.

Three Additional Day school / Dog Only options for times you are busy but need help in the home with lessons.

Unlimited access to group sessions at Coach For Canines for a period of one year
