Online Puppy Obedience Program - $800 (also available with personalized instruction at our facility)
This is the perfect course for owners who are looking to become competent amateur dog trainers, but lack access to a training facility that provides professional instruction. This ten week program breaks puppy training down into a series of exercises that are straight forward and easy to follow. Stonnie believes that the best dog training is the dog training that gets done the most often. By breaking the training strategies and techniques down into simple elements, even complete novices can master the fundamentals of proper dog training in just a few weeks!
Each week Stonnie provides detailed video instruction. During the week, owners implement the strategies and techniques to the best of their ability, journaling the progress made or problems encountered. At the end of each week, owners send in their journal entries, along with performance videos, for review. Stonnie then examines the journals and videos, provides detailed feedback and suggests changes, if any are needed.
At the end of this process, owners have all the skills needed to continue moving their puppy in the direction of being an awesome companion; One that comes when called, will be still when told, and has good manners in all circumstances!
