Programs we offer:
In this unique two-week program, Michael works one-on-one with your dog daily to teach basic obedience (sit, down, stay, walking in heel position, recall on and off lead), and correct any problem behaviors (this can include anything from aggression in older dogs, to housebreaking puppies, mouthing, jumping, etc.) Along the way you and your family are invited to come out for training lessons so you can learn along the way and understand how to take over Michael’s leadership position once your dog comes home. Some of these lessons will also take place off-site at coffeshops, etc. to practice manners in public. During their stay here the dogs will also be socialized with other dogs and exercised on a daily basis. At the end of the training your dog will receive a bath and Michael will take him home for graduation to do a private session in your home.
In this special three-week program, you drop off and pick up your dog every day, Monday through Friday, for three weeks. During the school day, Michael will work one-on-one with your dog, teaching basic obedience (sit, down, stay, walking in heel position, recall on and off lead)and solving some simple problems (like jumping, pulling, mouthing, etc.). At pick up every day you will receive a quick summary of the day and Michael will go over with you what he worked on that day and assign “homework” and check in on the progress from the previous night. This program does not include the take home at graduation.
Michael will work with you and your dog(s)on anything that you have issues with, including basic obedience, basic manners, behavior modification, and problem solving. You will get the tools and knowledge you need to maintain and advance the training. These sessions can be held at any location you choose within a 40 mile radius.
