Adult Training

We work with ALL breeds of dogs, and with ALL issues. Our specialty is eliminating negative behavior issues; and we teach your dog all the basics using COMPASSIONATE training. It is our goal to teach you what your dog’s body language means & what they are trying to communicate to you. We will teach you gentle, yet assertive communication techniques. You will learn to become more patient and understanding with your dog to help your relationship!  You may just find that this personal awareness benefits other areas of your life as well (no extra charge ;-)).  Through our training, you and your dog will develop a mutually respectful and beneficial relationship. We offer in-home training, or on-site training. 

We offer FREE bi-weekly group classes to all clients during the warm months. As a client, you are encouraged to continue to bring your dog to these free socialization training groups for the lifetime of your dog.  This way your dog can continue to progress! These classes also provide an excellent opportunity for us to help you with any questions or follow-up you may need. We are SO passionate, and truly invested in your success!   Presently, we also offer unlimited phone support, even after completing your training.

All sessions are personalized and designed specifically for you and your dog’s unique needs. We do not want to create dependence; our aim is to help you become independent and confident in your canine relationship–enough to handle any future issue that may arise!

Let us help you create the healthiest relationship between you and your dog; after all, they are a member of your family!

We are one of the ONLY places in Utah to offer customized in-home dog training. We think that is so important because home is where your dog is the most comfortable, and there for the most “rebellious”. We like to show you in your environment how to address any issue. That way you and your dog don’t have the added stress of being in a new environment, that can be overwhelming and hinder your dog’s ability to really soak up the training. With in-home training you don’t need to worry about that.

Day training is a Monday – Friday program having your dog dropped off in the morning at 8:00-9:00AM and picked up the same day at 5-6 PM sharp. This program is for dogs who need to learn the basics, or already know the basics and just need help with something in specific like E-Collar training, leash walking, socialization skills, impulse control, manners, etc. We push your dogs training as far as possible in a gentle, compassionate, positive, and engaging way. Your dog must be 6 months or older to qualify. (We do not accept all dogs or severe issues for this program.) We require a $50 evaluation prior and that money will go toward any training services you decide on. This program is COMPLETELY focused and customised for your needs. If your unsure what your wanting help with, here is a list of what we typically focus on:

  • Leash training and walking nicely.
  • Sit, Stay, Come, and down.
  • E-collar training if added on. 
  • Impulse control (Place)
  • Recall (Coming when called)
  • Access to group classes for the life of your dog.
  • Phone support for the life of your dog.
  • Anything else you might be struggling with.

Once you pick up your dog Friday we will provide you with a customized plan to maintain training. You will get 3 follow up sessions after training, each being about 2 hours long. When you pick up your dog, we will teach you everything they have learned, and how to continue there training by working hands on. We will provide reading material and tools to help with your dog’s training. We know teaching you how to train and maintain your relationship is what is most important. So we will make sure you feel confident in what you’re doing after training.

 

How to prepare for in-home training. Please do not exercise your dog that day other than a light morning walk if we have a later session. We only do training Monday-Friday, so keep that in mind when scheduling. When we arrive at your home your dog must be on a STURDY leash or preferably in the crate. This is for our safety, even if you have a small fluffy puppy we bring in some very valuable equipment. Like a laptop, we don’t want to drop by accident. The first hour will be spent going over paperwork and the training program. We find the session will go much smoother if they are in the crate during that time, so their energy is spent on the actual training.

Travel Fee: $5 and up. Travel is included if you live or wish to train within 15 miles of me (use Fort Utah Park 200 N 2050 W Geneva Rd, Provo, UT 84601, as a reference to estimate). Unfortunately, due to high travel costs, I’ve had to add a travel fee of $5 for sessions 16-20 miles away. Add an additional $5 per session for each 5 mile increment after that. If you’d like to reduce or eliminate this fee, you are welcome to come to me or meet me at a local park.
