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.

Basic Obedience Training Curriculum:

  • Potty training puppies

  • House breaking dogs that are older

  • Sit and Stay in distractions

  • 1 minute sit in high distractions

  • Stay in distractions

  • 3 minute down in distractions

  • Wait inside a car so they do not bolt out of the car

  • Wait in a doorway

  • Drop: to drop any and all things you ask them to

  • Walking on a loose leash (means “do not pull”)

  • Off: do not jump on me or anyone else

  • Sit in excitement: we will teach your dog that they must listen to you even if they are excited or in high drive

  • We teach the dog that their name means come to me

  • “Come” as an emergency command on a 20 foot long line leash

  • We also teach a non-verbal come command which is a sound association

  • We will teach 3 tools to get your dog to come to you

  • They will have 3 tricks to graduate!!

Intermediate Obedience Training Curriculum:

  • Fronts & Finishes – First calling your dog to you, they will sit directly in front of you, and then they will go behind you to sit on your left side. This is all one command.

  • 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
