BASIC OBEDIENCE BOARD AND TRAIN
This Board & Train program is a very comprehensive training program designed for the owner that wants an active lifestyle with their dog. This program takes the basic on-leash obedience training to the next level. On top of the loose leash, polite walking, sit and down, stay, come and place, we teach your dog a strong leave-it command as well as “return to heel”. Our “return to heel” command teaches your dog to swing themselves back into our left side and sit politely waiting for your next direction. We also teach your dog an incredibly important command that we call “Easy.” They learn to be “Easy” in situations where previously they may have been very adrenalized.
We will train your dog on duration, making sure your dog can maintain his command for as long as you need. Also, we teach your dog to work under heavy distractions; outside, around various people and animals, in different locations at store, parks, beach, cafe, etc. This training will make your dog a dog you can trust anywhere.
This Basic Board and Train is NOT for dogs that any history of aggression, with people and/or dogs. We do have a program for these dogs, called our Behavior Modification Board and Train.
OFF-LEASH OBEDIENCE BOARD AND TRAIN
This is an incredibly popular program, because once this program is completed your dog will be reliable and trustworthy on and off the leash, and from great distances. We focus heavily on politely walking next to your side, sit-stay, down-stay, place, leave it and a solid recall (or come command). We train your dog using low-level remote collar as a prompt. Think of it as a light tap on your dogs shoulder to gain their attention and understanding even when they are in an extremely distracting environment. If you are hesitant about this at all, please ask our trainers to show you exactly what the collar is about. We have successfully trained hundreds of dog to be off leash reliable, and happy about it, using this amazing tool. We use the low level collar as a communication tool, never as a punishment. We are all about communicating with kindness.
BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION BOARD AND TRAIN
We have been rehabilitating dogs with varying levels of behavior issues for 10 years. Our owner, Sherry Boyer, quickly grew her reputation as one of the only trainers in the entire Bay Area who specialized in fear and aggression rehabilitation. We believe very strongly that a major component of rehabilitating dogs who are showing these traits, is that they need to be communicated with in a manner they understand. This means we often go slowly, creating relationship with them, in a meaningful way. We teach the dog about consistency, and trust, and then their entire world expands. This is THE MOST rewarding aspect of our jobs as dog trainers. Due to the time, and attention that a dog in one of our behavior modification board and train programs requires, this is a more expensive and extensive program. And the feedback we receive from the difference in our clients’, and their dogs’, lives tells us that it was worth it!
OFF LEASH OBEDIENCE WITH BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION
This may be an option for certain dogs with lower level behavior issues.
