In addition to group classes and private lessons we offer residency programs (board & train programs). What’s the difference you may ask? In residency programs, we train your dog and then train you.
This option works great for people who do not have time to train due to a busy schedule, want quick results and/or want to change more difficult behaviors. The next time you go on vacation, instead of just boarding your dog, send him through a residency program and come home to an educated canine. It’s up to you to put in the time, repetitions, consistency to teach your dog. We send our human children to school and college, why not send your K9 kid too.
The following training programs are designed to teach dogs and owners at different levels. In order for all of our training programs to be successful, it is imperative for owner(s) to work at home to change patterns and behaviors as instructed by your trainer. Your willingness to incorporate the obedience commands into everyday life, as instructed by your trainer, is crucial for success. The time and energy that you invest will determine how much you and your dog are able to accomplish. The following is a breakdown of what each residency training program offers you and your dog. All of our programs can be customized or modified to accommodate you and your dog’s specific needs and wants. Call 269-465-OBEY (6239) for more information.
- Training dogs are required to have the following vaccinations: DHLP, Parvo, and Rabies. We also recommend the Corona and Bordatella vaccinations. The Bordatella vaccination must be given at least 10 days prior to training. It is the owner’s responsibility to provide current vaccination records. Dogs that are without vaccination records or overdue on vaccinations will not be accepted for training.
- Before booking a residency program you and your dog should come in for a mini consult (meet and greet appointment), cost for this appointment is $35.
