So, you are ready to get your dog on the same page as you? Good. Let’s do this.
First, we always start with an in-home visit so we can start our “human” relationship, cover all the important info, determine your schedule, set your goals, and figure out what the optimal plan of action is. Sounds like a plan? Great.
If your dog has terrible front door manners or barks at the neighbor’s cat, you can work on correcting those specific behaviors in addition to building an even more solid foundation for your dog and you. Our training is tailored to fit your specific training goals, rather than the generalized curriculum of a group class, which we do offer, after you “graduate” the program.
In-home private dog training allows us to focus and set specific goals for you and your family. We can cover more ground meetings weekly in your own home, where we strategically go through the learning process for each command and after they understand the commands we add more distractions, distance and lengthen the duration. We “layer” on the distractions so that your dog can handle real-world situations, everyday life, and excursions out and about Charlotte and beyond. We continue to meet bi-weekly until you complete the private lesson program.
Oh, and just so you know there are no lesson caps or limits, but typically we complete the program in 8-10 lessons.
Our Board And Train Process is quite transformational for your dog and quite literally life-changing for you. Your dog literally spends all day in our home, and out and about, training. We work on house manners, cover the goals and issues you struggle with most, and build advanced skills for your lifestyle goals. Skills like backpacking, boating, or even walk at the park. We also cover the most annoying things like counter surfing, door manners, and what to do when the mailman comes.
We also work on the skills needed to go to town, or to the grocery store perhaps. They get exposure to various levels of distractions at all sorts of places. Wherever you frequent most, we can cover the training for you. Whether that’s the park, local breweries, and all sorts of fun places in and around Charlotte. They get exposure to different levels of distractions so they are ready to come home to you, with all the skills they need. All you have to do is continue reinforcing what they learned while with us. And we even help you with that!
We offer a few different solutions for you and your sidekick to awesomeness. But first, before we dive into the nitty and the gritty, we always start with an in-home evaluation to discuss your ultimate goals for training, your lifestyle, and what kind of outings you can picture yourself taking and together we can discuss what option might be best for you and your family. Here is a package breakdown for our Adult Training Packages.
