Training

It’s A Dog’s life Training plans

Basic Obedience

For: Dogs 5 months and older

Length: 6 weeks
Prerequisite: Current vaccination certificate
Cost: $150 + tax ($162.00 total)
Where: It’s A Dog’s Life Daycare

Basic Obedience: You will learn to apply numerous positive reinforcement training games and exercises which will enable you to teach your dog basic manners and obedience. Skills taught include loose-leash walking, impulse control, sitting instead of jumping up, staying when asked to, and coming when called.  Most of all, you and your dog will develop a strong, mutually respectful relationship.

Note: This class is not appropriate for dogs that growl, bark and lunge at other dogs/people. If you have a dog who displays this behavior, we would recommend separate training classes, including the possibility of referring to a qualified behaviorist.

Intermediate Obedience

Length: 6 weeks
Prerequisite: Basic Obedience and Current vaccination certificate
Cost: $150 + tax ($162.00 total)
Where:  It’s A Dog’s Life Daycare

Intermediate Obedience: If you have already taken some Basic Obedience skills, taking this class will refine and strengthen them. Continuing to use the foundation skills, you will now apply them to long-leash training, distance recalls, and solid stays. This is a great course for a dog that already has basic manners and an owner who wants to do more

Note: This class is not appropriate for dogs that growl, bark and lunge at other dogs/people. If you have a dog who displays this behavior, we would recommend separate training classes, including the possibility of referring to a qualified behaviorist.

Private Sessions:

Private Sessions are geared to each dog’s needs, but typically we would be addressing several of the following:

  • Housebreaking and crate training
  • Foundation skills (attention, hand-targeting, leave it)
  • Walking on a leash without pulling
  • Greeting without jumping up
  • Obedience skills (sit, down, stay)
  • Coming when called
  • Waiting politely instead of bolting out an open door
