Would you like for your dog to be professionally trained, yet can’t stand the thought of being away from your precious companion for 2 weeks or longer? Well, the Home Stay Training is the program for you!
In this particular program, we do all the hard work and come to you! We will work with your dog in his or her own home environment 5 days a week, Monday – Friday or Tuesday – Saturday, training obedience and spending time exercising/playing with your dog. This course is like Boot Camp for dogs in their own home! It doesn’t matter if you are at home or at work, your dog will get trained! In fact, we prefer to not enter the home without the home owner’s presence.
We will you teach your dog the following commands:
- Wait at doors or gates (Deluxe & Premier Packages)
- Heel with Auto Sit
- Recall or Come
- Place or Settle(Deluxe & Premier Packages)
- Distance & Heavy Distractions (Deluxe & Premier Packages)
- Leave It (Premier Package)
- Watch (Premier Package)
- Drop It (Premier Package)
- Problem Behaviors: Digging, Chewing, Playful Biting, Barking Excessively, Counter Surfing, Stealing Objects, Jumping on people, Jumping on furniture….and more!
Once your dog has been fully obedience trained by us, we will then train you! You will receive a 30 minute “handover” lesson at the end of each week, plus a 30 minute lesson on the last day of training. Remember, it is always so much easier to work with a trained dog!
Depending on which comprehensive package you choose, you are also entitled to one-on-one lessons at our campus with one of our qualfied instructors, or have a follow up lesson conducted in your own home. We can also spend these lessons working on wait, place, digging, chewing, house breaking, counter surfing, trash digging, running away, jumping on the sliding glass door, barking and any management issues that you may have. This also provides you with the perfect opportunity to work with your dog around even more distractions or offers you an excellent way to refresh your dog’s training later on in the future.
