Our Dog Obedience Training Programs
While we specialize in dog obedience training 78734, we train all kinds of pets. Our trainers have experience working with cats, parrots, ferrets, rabbits, and pot-bellied pigs. Any of your feline, furry, or feathered friends can enroll in their version of our private in-home training, video chat consultations, or our executive program.
Private In-Home Dog Training
For your new puppy who is getting ready for a housetraining routine, we highly recommend our in-home training. In this program, we treat minor problem behaviors like play biting, chewing, storm phobia, and separation anxiety. We also can cover a couple of basic obedience behaviors.
We typically schedule two to three private lessons, depending on what you need. In your first training sessions, you will start with a half-hour consultation with your personal trainer. There, you will discuss the training goals you have and develop an action plan. Then, your trainer will show you how to put it into practice.
Your trainer coming to your home might be convenient for you, but it provides even more benefits for your dog. To start, we get to train them in a place they are already comfortable in, cutting down on distractions and anxiety. Secondly, they will learn in the same space they will perform them. You can probably picture how this would help with something like housebreaking. Our private lessons make for the ideal dog obedience training 78734.
Video Chat Consultations
For those that live outside our range of service, either in the Austin area or Houston TX or Kansas City MO, then we have our video chat training program. We wish we could help everyone that needs dog obedience training. So for those too far away, we took advantage of technology. We can provide tips, tricks, advice, or just a starting off point through one-on-one conversations with our professional dog trainers.
For more extensive training, we have our executive program. With this program, your dog works with us three days a week. In the first two days, your personal trainer will work with them alone. And on the last day, you join them to learn what they have worked on and how to continue it at home. We can teach more obedience behaviors and treat more minor problem behaviors, like low-level reactivity, in this program.
Board and Train
Our more advanced programs allow us to accomplish a lot more. Often, we treat severe problem behavior, even aggression. If you have an aggressive animal, you should try to get them to help right away. However, these programs are not only for treating problem behaviors. We also teach high-level obedience.
Through our board and train program, your dog spends an extended stay with one of our personal trainers. This way, they receive the time and consistent training it takes to teach high-level behaviors or help with severe problems.
Our all-inclusive package is our most popular and intensive package. In this one, your dog works with our trainer for five days a week. Four of those days, they spend working with our trainer. The last day, you learn what they have worked on. With this intense program, we are confident we can accomplish whatever your dog training goals are.
For dogs that have graduated from one of our advanced training programs, they can continue their doggie education with us. Our maintenance training allows us to continue along with whatever they left off from or any new skills you want to work on.
