About In-Home Training
In your home, dog obedience training includes house-breaking older dogs as well as potty training puppies, socialization with other dogs, and training around other dogs as a distraction. This 6-week course will be tailored to exactly the problems you are having. Your dog will learn to listen to you no matter what the distraction.
The benefit to in-home training versus group or on-site private training is the convenience of a trainer coming to your home and working on your time scheduler.

Intermediate Obedience Training Curriculum:

Precision Heel. Sit when you stop. Turn left and right staying in proper position.
5 minute sit in distractions with toys being thrown past the dogs: food distractions, kids and dogs running by while the dog maintains his long sit for 35 minutes.
10 minute down in distractions – same as above but with the dog in a down position.
Place command in high distractions. Dogs can not get off the place bed till commanded, no matter what is going on around them. This includes running and/or playing dogs.
Down in motion: walking fast and commanding a down, your dog must follow the command and lie down. You will keep walking while your dog remains in position.
Sit in motion: Walking fast and giving the sit command, your dog will stay in position while you walk away quickly.
Starting out of sight commands: This means dog must stay in positions even if you are out of their sight and a distance away from you.
Starting off leash heeling and off leash basic commands.
Back up: Dogs must know how to back up if you need them to, particularly in tight quarters.
Sit in very high excitement: we will build the dogs drive up and then give them a command one time. They must be in command and IN control in less than 1 second
Come: dog learns to come to you and sit on your side no matter what the distractions are
