Medical breakthroughs have allowed us to better understand how a dog thinks, how a dog processes information, how a dog learns. All of our training packages and training methods have been developed by these cutting advancements in mapping a dog's brain.
Enroll your dog in the basic training package and your dog will become a resident of The Dog Knowledge for 4 weeks. During that time, we pride ourselves in our ability to open up your dog's mind to learn the skills, manners and obedience he needs to be a welcome part of your family and community. Your dog will participate in multiple training sessions throughout the day which keeps training fun and exciting. In addition to obedience, we will “charge the clicker” with your dog, teach him some basic tricks, and introduce him to our agility course. Your dog will enjoy walks, playtime and a home like atmosphere in our Sam’s Town Cottages. Includes a 1 hour in home session or (2) 1 hour at sessions at our facility with trainer, a take home instructional DVD and a TDK bandana with training graduate badge.
This package takes training to the next level. Beyond our beginner training package, our intermediate program will tap into your dog's mind and innate desire to please to teach him some amazing skills. Your dog will be a resident of The Dog Knowledge for 6 weeks, during which he will master basic obedience and clicker skills. In addition, he will learn a variety of tricks, be introduced to the treadmill, and enjoy plenty of swim time in our 28' pool. We will help your dog become not just a good dog, but a superstar. Your dog will enjoy walks, playtime and a home like atmosphere in our Sam’s Town Cottages. Includes a 1 hour in home session or (2) 1 hour at sessions at our facility with trainer, a take home instructional DVD and a TDK bandana with training graduate badge. He will also earn his Canine Good Citizen certification and be eligible for future training to become a Therapy or Service Dog.**
Everything offered in our basic & intermediate training packages, and so much more. Depending on your interests and your dog’s drive and natural abilities, once we master basic obedience, we introduce your dog to specific areas of interest for specialized training such as agility, search and rescue, service dog work, tracking, scent detection, etc. The direction your dog’s training takes the last couple of weeks of his 8 week stay with us, will be determined by you, the owner and recommendation from the trainers. We will send home the dog you’ve dreamed of owning. Includes a 1 hour in home session or (2) 1 hour at sessions at our facility with trainer, a take home instructional DVD, a TDK bandana with training graduate badge and his very own Canine Good Citizen and Therapy Dog Certification.**
Items in bold come under the heading of obedience and all dogs will be expected to master these skills before graduating.
Success with additional items listed in each package may depend on your dog's breed, aptitude, personality, age and past experiences.
