Private in-home obedience class
These four-week private classes set the foundation for a lifetime of manners and obedience, and we bring the classroom to your living room! This is a great alternative to group classes for shy dogs, reactive dogs and busy households with special scheduling needs.
Since you will be getting 100% of the instructor’s time and attention, the pace of the class can be adjusted to fit your dog’s strengths and weaknesses. If your dog already knows how to sit like a champion, but trying to take him for a walk down the street feels like walking a tornado on a leash, we can spend less time reinventing the wheel with behaviors your dog already knows and more time on the behaviors that your dog needs the most help with.
Our foundation program is designed as one eight week course, but to accommodate schedules and paychecks, we split our enrollment into two halves, Foundations A and Foundations B, each four weeks long. The price is reduced for those who sign up for both halves at the same time.
In our Foundations A course, your dog will learn basic skills like:
- Lay down
- Come when called
- Resist temptation (leave it)
- Walk on a loose leash
Our Foundations B course builds on those basic skills and adds reliability with real-world distractions. Your dog will learn how to:
- Stay in position until released
- Respond in distracting situations
- Wait calmly in a designated place
- Sit for petting (instead of jumping)
- Resist bigger temptations in the real world
