In-Kennel Training Courses

 

Lesson-Based Training Courses

 

Socialization (In-Kennel Only)

Our socialization program is beneficial and strongly recommended for both puppies and adult dogs preparing for competitive events.  All competitive sporting events require a dog to be calm and to think clearly through a wide variety of situations.  Because of this, we consider socialization and desensitization to be one of the most fundamental aspects of training a dog for competition.  A dogs excellent bite quality or keen tracking ability can quickly become insignificant if the dog fails to perform these tasks when frightened or agitated by some unfamiliar variable in its environment.  Our socialization program introduces the dog to bicycles, large groups of people and kids, other animals, gun shots, etc., and most importantly, trains the dog to work through these distractions. 

 

Additional Services

Following are some of the additional training services available:

 

       In-Home Training

       Suit Work / Hidden Sleeve

       Personal Protection

       Training for Special Scenarios

       Muzzle Training

       Group Sessions Available

 

All dogs are individuals and learn at different rates.  Some dogs learn very quickly while others require more time and patience, because of this, we can only give an approximate time frame for the completion of our courses and cannot guarantee that your dog can or will obtain a specific title, degree, or rating.  Also, your dogs ability to retain what is has learned is directly related to your involvement in its training now and once it completes one of our courses.  Please actively participate in your dogs training by attending the handling lessons included with your in-kennel course.
