Dog Obedience School

Our dog obedience school is a Monday through Friday inboard course that is owner involved training. This three week program establishes proper obedience; teaching your dog how to walk on leash without pulling, to come when called, sit or down on command, to stop jumping on people, and respond to commands consistently.

Dogs enrolled for this program stay at the Academy Monday through Friday returning home with the owners on the weekend. At the end of each week, the owner receives go-home instructions specific to advancing their dogs training. Owners learn each phase of the learning process and also develop training skills. This course is ideal for owners that want to be involved with the training process and also prefer to have their dogs home on the weekend.

Obedience School Training Curriculum:

Obedience Training - Owner Involved - Monday through Friday your dog will be trained by a professional trainer at the Academy. Training will include commands to walk at your side without pulling, sit, stay, down, come when called, wait at doors, go into a kennel on command, and more! Each weekend owners will receive training instruction to practice and develop skills in each phase of training.

Proper Etiquette - Dogs learn to meet and greet humans under control and without jumping (all four paws on the floor). In level II and level III, dogs travel to public places to practice etiquette in a real world environment. These opportunities also give us the ability to teach them proper etiquette like no jumping up, sitting and waiting at cross-walks, or getting in and out of a vehicle on command.

Treadmill Training - Dogs learn to run on a human treadmill; these workouts improve stamina, tone muscles (incline, intervals, power walking), and will help your dog absorb more in training. We include daily cardio and strength training, and daily weight monitoring.

Pack Socialization - Dogs enrolled for obedience training also receive pack socialization. They have the opportunity to run and play with the other dogs at the Academy. Group play time or pack socialization is supervised and structured making this a positive experience.

Upon completion of obedience training, your dog will receive a certificate of completion in recognition from the Academy.
