Questions About Your Dog

Do you work with all breeds?

All breeds, all ages, all temperaments.

Do you work with intact dogs?

Yes, we have a lot of experience working with intact dogs of all sizes, ages and breeds. 

How old is too old to train a dog?

No dog is ever too old to be trained. We believe dogs can learn at any age by using consistent techniques.

MY DOG IS STUBBORN OR OLDER, CAN THEY STILL LEARN OBEDIENCE?

Yes of course! Increased amounts of patience may be needed on your part, but all dogs have the ability to be trained. We have proven just that! Check out some of our training videos on our home page, or YouTube here!

At what age should my dog be in order to start private lessons?

We would like to start formally training your dog no earlier than 10 weeks of age. All dogs should receive training from the moment you integrate them into your home, however, 10 weeks is a great age to start. Any earlier and most puppies want to sleep through the training sessions. 

HOW MUCH TIME SHOULD I SPEND TRAINING EACH DAY WITH MY DOG?

Goal is to keep training fun. Focus on short and frequent training sessions with your dog. The more time you invest in training them on a daily basis, the faster your dog will start to understand what is expected of them. Each dog learns at a different rate. We recommend at least 5 to 10 mini sessions a day (2-10 minutes each session).

HOW MUCH EXERCISE SHOULD MY DOG RECEIVE EACH DAY?

All dogs are different depending on their age. Key is to go on at least 2 walks a day with your dog. Walks can range from 15 minutes (younger puppies) to 45 minutes (adolescent, adult dogs). Exercise helps to strengthen the bond between you and your dog. They will thank you for the focused interaction!

How many dogs do you accept into the board and train program at a time?

We do not compromise the integrity of what we offer to our clients, so only 2 dogs are accepted into the board and train program at a time per trainer. Our priority is to ensure that your dog is provided the utmost care, safety and quality training time. Standards will not be compromised!
