Drop Off Dog Training

Drop Off Dog Training: 

 * We use positive training methods.  Dog must have good food/toy motivation.  If a dog does not have the needed food motivation, a specific two week feeding routine will be required before starting this program.

* Drop off training works well for teaching your dog basic obedience commands and for working on minor behavior issues (jumping, play biting, barking, etc).  The down side of this type of training is that it only trains the dog not the owner.  We will give information to the owner regarding how to do the training.  However, we strongly suggest after this training the owners take their dog through our group training courses or schedule a private appointment with Kim to learn how to continue to work with their dog. 

* Dogs completing this program will listen to us and behave for us, but there is no guarantee dogs will listen to or behave for the owners.  If you want this program to really work for you and your dog you must follow up this training options with one of our other options where you, the owner, bring the dog through training.

* We offer 3 Levels of Dog Training – All dogs start in Level 1

 DOG TRAINING IS LIKE TEACHING A PERSON HOW TO DRIVE A CAR:

1. Level 1 – Teaching a person how to drive = Empty Parking Lot/No Distractions/Make it Easy = For Dogs Level 1 “empty parking lot” is in the house/no distractions.    (New dogs start at this level)

            – Commands taught: Commands will be taught in the house no distractions on leash: name(getting dog’s attention), here, sit, down, stay, come, drop it(if needed), intro to walking(does not cover how to take a nice walk).

            – Manner/Behavior work: we will work on inappropriate behaviors such as play biting(not aggressive biting), jumping, barking, chewing, housebreaking.  Please understand your dog is what you                                make it.  Inappropriate behaviors are a result of how the owner raises their dog.  We will work on these behaviors, however, the dog may go back home and go back to the same behaviors you have created.

 

2. Level 2 – Teaching a person how to drive = Once the Empty Parking Lot/No Distractions is good you go to side roads & back roads = For Dogs Level 2 “side roads & back roads” is in the house/set up distractions.    Start work on getting the dog to listen when they DON’T WANT TO.   (For dogs that have completed Level 1)

            – Commands taught:Commands from Level 1 will be challenged with added distractions on leash such as other dogs, strangers, different places(outside work) and noises.   Commands worked on:                                     name, here, sit, down, stay, come, drop it(if needed), how to walk nice on leash, leave it.

            – Manner/Behavior work: Continued work from Level 1.

 

3. Level 3 – Teaching a person how to drive = Once the side roads & back roads are good you practice in the real work of city and highway driving = For Dogs Level 3  “city & highway driving” is  practicing in real life/distracting situations.    Goal conquer LISTEN WHEN YOU DON’T WANT
TO.   (For dogs that have completed Level 2)

            – Commands taught: Commands from Level 2 will be challenged with harder distractions than Level 2 & off leash.   Commands worked on: name, here, sit, down, stay, come, drop it(if needed), how to walk nice on leash, leave it.

            – Manner/Behavior work: Continued work from Level 2.
