Force Free Fido has in-home private sessions to meet all of your dog training needs. We also have new curriculum in development as of Spring 2015 and will be rolling out additional course offerings in the near future — stay tuned!
Puppy Genius! is our in-home socialization and development course for puppies 8-16 weeks old. A solid puppy socialization plan can be the difference between a well-adjusted pet and one with serious behavior problems a few months down the line. In this course, you will learn how to develop your own socialization plan to introduce your puppy to the world in a safe, positive way. Your puppy will get a chance to interact with new objects, meet friendly strangers, get comfortable with basic body handling, and build good associations with crates and car rides. You will also learn how to set your dog up for success to avoid typical puppy behavior problems like destructive chewing, nipping, potty training problems and more.
We offer two levels of private in-home obedience courses. In these four-week courses, you will learn how to use the science of animal behavior to teach your dog basic manners through a series of easy, practical training games. Foundations A focuses on teaching skills like sit, down, loose leash walking, come when called and leave it. Foundations B builds on those skills and adds reliability with real-world distractions. These courses make a great in-home alternative for group classes.
Have a training problem that doesn’t seem to fit any of the other categories? This is probably what you’re looking for. These custom-tailored private sessions are perfect for addressing bad habits like jumping up, pulling on leash, house-training problems and nuisance behaviors (like excessive barking or chewing). We will set up a training scenario specifically designed for your dog’s issues and walk you through the process of shoring up that Achilles’ heel. We offer single sessions as well as discounted packages.
