As your pup is growing into adulthood, allow us to train him/her to grow into a well-mannered dog. Our Life Skills training program focuses on good house/outside manners.

LIFE SKILLS COVERS:

Good Manners: Appropriate ways to meet other dogs, waiting at doorways and boundary training.

Nuisance Behaviors: We will problem solve issues such as barking, jumping, counter surfing and more.

Behavior Modification: This is also a time in your dog’s life when problem behaviors may have developed or the beginnings of reactivity are emerging. We can develop a behavior modification plan to alleviate or eliminate your dog’s problems. Some behaviors are hard-wired into your pup genetically, but even these can be lessened using positive methods.

BEHAVIORS LEARNED IN LIFE SKILLS:
  • Loose-Leash Walking
  • Sit (With Stay)
  • Down (With Stay)
  • Leave It
  • Come With Distractions
  • Wait
  • Off
TIMING & BUILT-IN INDIVIDUAL TRAINING

Life Skills is a one-week program offered during your dog’s Boarding stay or as a Day Trainer, where you drop your dog off anywhere between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m. with pick-up between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. One Individual Training Hour is built into this program to use at the owner’s discretion (e.g. problem behaviors in the home, refresher training) within one year of your dog’s completion of the program. The Life Skills program can be made into a 2-week program as needed.
