Training Options

Offering dog training options that’ll cover the basics, advanced obedience, problem behaviors, service dog skills or any of your specific needs.

We specialize in providing exceptional, one-on-one training  in the comfort of your own home.

 

Proudly Serving Families & Their Dogs in:

Spicewood, Bee Cave, Lakeway, Oak Hill, Dripping Springs, and parts of South Austin, Texas

 

 

All of our packages are completely customizable and provide one-on-one time with our professional  trainer any weekday that’s convenient for you and your family.

We’ll begin by talking with you over the phone and then, during our initial session, we’ll get to know you better. Together we’ll discuss how your dog is currently behaving, what you’d like to learn, change or improve upon, develop a plan to reach your goals and work with you to get you there.  You’ll even begin training the very first week!  We usually meet once a week, so you’ll have plenty of time to practice in between visits.

Basic Manners & More info

 

Does your dog do some things you wish you could change?

Dog Obedience Basic Manners

The Basic Manners & More Package is a personalized program that focuses on the behaviors that are specifically important to you and your family.

We can work on just the basics that need some fine tuning and/or those unacceptable behaviors your dog has been practicing a while.

Our Trainer will meet with you, one-on-one, for six (6) sessions either in your home or at another “real world” location. This program is fantastic for dogs that are having some of the common behavior problems listed above or just need a “tune up”. It’s also great for multi-dog households!

Basic Manners & More can also be modified to four (4) sessions for the same price as the Fresh Start Package.

AKC Canine Good Citizen Title

 

Did you know dogs who have a solid foundation in life skills and training are a joy to live with?

AKC Canine Good Citizen Class

As a Canine Good Citizen your dog should respond well to household routines, have good manners in the presence of people and other dogs at home or in the community. They fully enjoy the company of their family who took the time to provide training, intellectual stimulation, and a high quality life.

If your dog has completed the Fresh Start or Good Manners package you’re an ideal candidate to earn AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Certificate. Even if you haven’t completed either of those packages we can customize the Good Citizen Package to work on specific behaviors you need to pass the Canine Good Citizen Test & obtain your title.

During your eight (8) sessions, you and your trainer will focus on loose leash walking in public, meeting and accepting new people and dogs, distractions, and some of the basics like leave it, polite greetings, stay and coming when called. For many therapy dog groups, passing the CGC test is a requirement.

If your dog already has these skills, as a certified AKC CGC evaluator, we can meet you in public and administer the test for a small fee. We can even do a practice run to determine what you need to focus on a tailor a package to fit your needs.
