DEVELOPMENT & TRAINING
PATHWAY TO LIFE LONG LEARNING
Many adult dogs missed out on fully developing their good manners and correct behaviors when they were puppies. Sometimes they just need a little refresher. Sometimes they have to start from scratch. Whether your dog is just a little rusty or is new to training altogether, we will work collaboratively with you to develop the best plan to help your furry friend be the pet you've always wanted. We have options!
IT'S NEVER TOO LATE
ADULT DOG DEVELOPMENT & TRAINING PROGRAMS
Professional Training Assessment
A Play Style Assessment is the first step for us to meet your dog. After completing a Play Style Assessment, you may schedule a Professional Training Assessment on your next visit (M-F). During this 30 minute session, one of our professional Trainers will evaluate your dog's current behaviors and skill levels, comfort with the training process, preferred learning style, and level of interest in learning. One of our Trainers will contact you to give you feedback based on the information gathered during your dog's training assessment. Together, we will develop your dog's basic learning plan, as YOU are an integral part of your dog's success. All of our Development & Training Programs are based on positive reinforcement and aligned with the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers (CCPDT).
Option A - Adult Dog Development Program
We will implement your dog's basic learning plan generally over a two-week period. Your dog's day with us comprises of two components - formal training sessions (2 per day) with one of our professional Trainers and morning & afternoon play days. You will be getting videos each development day of your dog's training experience. These will enable you to reinforce your dog's training experience at home. At the end of the program, we will discuss the progress your dog has made and what next steps you want to take.
Option B - Ranch Hands On Training Program
This is a weekly series (6 sessions) where you and up to 2 additional family members participate directly with the training of your dog. One of our professional Trainers will work with you and your dog during these sessions focusing on those behaviors you've identified as important to your family. This will include our Trainer demonstrating proven training methods as well as coaching you while utilizing those same methods. At the end of this series, we can assess the progress your dog has made and discuss next steps you want to take. These sessions are available on weekday evenings and weekend mornings and last approximately 45 minutes.
