There are quotation marks around "obedience" because training your dog establishes two-way communication. Yes, there need to be rules and boundaries, and yes, your dog needs to do as you say. However, that is not to be confused with the actual work of training your dog to respond reliably. That is what Pupstart will teach you how to do kindly and in such a way that your children may participate and the dog will even "listen to" them as well as adults.
It's class with your family...in your home! At the initial consult, we'll decide together which skills your dog needs to live with you. Plan on 1.5 - 2 hours and an initial investment of $120.00 to $160.00. You'll have plenty to work on after the first visit! After that visit, we will decide together how many sessions you'll need to meet your training goals and you will receive an estimate. You can pay in advance to obtain a significant discount or you can go with the "pay-as-you-go" fee of $80/hour. Package sessions purchased in advanced are over one hour long. Pupstart remains available during and after these visits for support.
After an initial consult, we'll decide which skills you'd like your dog to have. Common desired skills are COME, SIT, LIE DOWN, STAY, WAIT, KENNEL UP, LEAVE IT and beginning leash skills. Plan on 1.5 - 2 hours and an initial investment of $120.00 to $160.00.
In a day training package, Pupstart then privately tutors your dog for you. Sessions are conducted daily in your home several days per week. Throughout the process, you'll be updated and will learn how to maintain the skills your dog is learning weekly during "transfer sessions" with your entire family. Each custom Day Training package assures the training will "stick" as long as you follow through. The fee for Day Training varies depending on the length of the training program. Program costs vary between $700.00 to $1,050.00. Pupstart remains available during and after these programs for support.
