DOG TRAINING TESTIMONIALS

About The Training Academy

Our Training Academy offers an individualized training program that sets the owner and their dog(s) up for long term success. We are a small team which allows us to work extra closely with our clients. Our training uses the cooperative relationship between the handler and the animal to achieve mutually beneficial results while at the same time enhancing and strengthening their relationship. We focus on bettering the relationship between dog and owner and believe there is no one-size-fits-all in dog training. We focus on the dog in front of us and what will make them and their owners the most successful.

 

Steps to enroll your dog in any of our Academy options:

  1. Register through Gingr here.
  2. Fill out our questionnaire here.
  3. Set up initial private evaluation lesson with a trainer - the cost is $125 and is typically 1 hour long.
    1. During the evaluation, our trainers will work with the owners to create a foundation for the training. We will discuss owners’ goals and create a curriculum tailored to the owner and dog which will include what should be practiced at home. We provide a tour of our facilities and go over any questions the owners may have. At the end of the lesson, we will finalize the enrollment of the dog’s initial (3) weeks of The Academy.

REGISTER FOR THE ACADEMY

 

The Academy Masters Program: $115/day

(Must have gone through The Academy & this option must be approved by a trainer)

 

The Masters Program days include more in-depth training. Your dog will spend the day with us working with one of our trainers on your dog’s specific needs. Trainers continue the work that was started in the 3-week Academy course and work closely with the owners towards their goals. While your dog is enrolled in the Academy Masters Program, trainers may suggest more individual lessons to better help owners.

 

Masters Program Packages (non-refundable and Masters Program days must be scheduled at time of purchase):

  • 3-Days - $300 (saves $45)
  • 9-Days - $920 (saves $115)

A (4) week long program where your dog attends 3 days a week working on the Mini Educator E-collar

(Must have gone through The Academy & this option must be approved by a trainer)

 

The Ph.D. program teaches the owner and dog the language of the E-Collar as well as continuing all previous training. During the 4 weeks, our trainers assist in properly conditioning the dog to the e-collar. During each day they get individual training sessions, working on the e-collar for recalls, both at our facility and surrounding neighborhood. Using a tool like the Mini Educator E-collar gives us the safety net to enjoy off-leash adventures. Our trainers work closely with owners ensuring their confidence in utilizing the tool properly. Owners should expect to spend time with a trainer each week going over the dog & owners progress. While your dog is enrolled in the Academy Ph.D. Program, trainers may suggest more individual lessons to better help owners.

 

 

Structured Day School: $68/day

(Must have gone through The Academy & this option must be approved by a trainer)

 

This is a learning based structured daycare option. We continue to work on their socialization and manners with both dogs & humans! Throughout the day, the dogs are provided with group training exercises, enrichment activities, play, and down time. This option is perfect for those dogs that “need a job”, have great manners, and want to upkeep mental stimulation during structured days.

Individual Training: $125/1 hour

Session at our Facility

 

Setting up an individual training session at our facility allows us to create a foundation in a managed and neutral environment. No matter age, size, breed, or behavior, we will work on creating a balanced relationship between owner and dog. Owners will be provided with a follow-up of the lesson with a curriculum for at-home practice.
