Private Training for your Dog?
Everything you need to know about private training sessions for your dog

One-on-One Training
While most owners would love to have a well trained dog, many find the aspect of handling a difficult, willful and/or untrained dog too daunting.

Inexperienced handlers may find certain breeds too challenging to handle or they may not have the physically ability to cope with a robust headstrong dog. Many times the end result is - owners giving up on training all together.

We offer the concept of One-on-One Training. This entails that; while we handle your dog and get the basic training commands in place, you work with a well or partially trained dog, honing your handling and dog training skills.

The end result; you and your dog reunited. Enjoying the pleasure of each other’s company and functioning as a happy dog/handler team.

In-House Training
We offer in-house training programs. Dogs in training will be accommodated at our K9 Hotel facility and will receive 2-4 individual training sessions during the course of the day.

Beginner Camp (2 weeks)

Our 2-week training camps are aimed at dogs, 6 months and older. Dogs will be instructed in all the basic commands such as sit, down, stay, recall and controlled leash work. Laying a solid foundation for future obedience training.

The first week is spent teaching your dog our language. Helping him understand what we expect of him when we give certain commands, signals and cues. The second week will consist of positive reinforcing and relationship building.

All training sessions will be logged; work done and progress made will be noted. This information will be used to compile a report that will be presented to the owner at the end of the two-week camp.

A private training session will be scheduled on the last day of camp. During this session the dogs’ new abilities will be demonstrated. However the primary purpose will be to instruct the owner on how to maintain the level of obedience achieved, continue training at home and focus on strong relationship building between dog and owner.

Advanced Camp (4 weeks)

During the 4-week training camp your dog will receive extensive on lead, distance and recall obedience training.

The learning and reinforcement phases will take place during the first two weeks of training and will be conducted on our premises.

The proofing and polishing phase is done in the “field”. If deemed appropriate your dog will be exposed to town areas, shopping malls, forests and beaches. This method supplies the necessary exposure during his/her training, teaching your dog to perform under every day situations and distractions.

All training sessions will be logged; work done and progress made will be noted. This information will be used to compile a report that will be presented to the owner at the end of the four-week camp.

A private training session will be scheduled at the end of the last week. During this session the dogs’ new abilities will be demonstrated. However the primary purpose will be to instruct the owner on how to maintain the level of obedience achieved, continue training at home and focus on strong relationship building between dog and owner.
