Our One Week Basic Obedience Program is an excellent starter program in basic obedience. The most difficult period of training is during the first week so the hardest part is done prior to bringing your dog home. We can complete 75% of obedience with you dog in this time frame. This means your dog knows everything in basic obedience and does it reasonably well, but is not to the level of reliability we would like to see in a completed dog. After one week we do a single private lesson at your home with you to give you some basic controls and get you started off on the right foot.
A very important part comes next. In order to learn the rest of your handling skills and finish the dog’s conditioning, you must follow up by attending the basic obedience group class. Through the exercises we teach during this class, you will build a routine that establishes the relationship you wish to attain with your dog. Without this routine, your dog will regress in behavior over time. We suggest a minimum of five classes to gain your handling skills.
The video, audio and workbook are also included. This program has a total cost of $750.00 and includes a lifetime membership to our group classes and workshops.
