10 Day In-Home Foundation Program

I come to your home every weekday for 10 days and spend 30-45 minutes training your dog. I do all the work for you and you need not even be present! This is a very efficient way for your dog to learn, as I’m using  years of expertise with mechanics, timing, and reinforcement to help your dog learn as much as they can in a short amount of time. Your dog receives intensive instruction in experienced hands on all the basics. This is the optimal learning experience! Sit, down, stay, come, heel, off, place, and leave it , for 10 days in a row.

As well as the basics, each training program is tailored to your individual dog’s issues and your needs.

On Saturdays at the completion of each week, you and your family will get a 60-90 private session to learn how to execute and maintain all of your dogs new skills, and help ensure everyone is working together in perfect harmony!

  • Training collars (mechanical or electronic depending on which program choice is made) & Place Cot
