Basic Dog Training

Among the most important things you will do for yourself and your dog, Basic Training teaches fundamental skills beginning in a distraction-free environment. Setting up a learning structure that you'll use for the entire course of his or her life, your dog will learn to listen to your direction, focus on cue and respond to basic obedience commands. As the prerequisite for all good social behavior as well as for any future, more advanced training you may wish to do, Basic Training is the place to start.

My Basic Dog Training Program is structured to fit your own individual lifestyle, pocketbook and schedule, while providing the fundamentals that your dog needs.

Sign onto a program of one of my Basic Dog Training packages - a series of 3, 4, 5 or 6+ sessions - or begin with a one-time Consultation. Either way, I'll help you structure a series that takes in your personal specifications and meets your dog's needs. Call or email me and let's get started!
