Beginning and Basic Obedience

Beginning obedience classes set the foundation for your relationship with your dog or puppy. By employing motivational obedience techniques, you will learn how to teach before demanding it. You begin to learn your dog’s language and how to effectively establish control and communication from the leash down. Once the foundation has been laid, basic obedience expands on the commands taught in the Beginning sessions and focuses on the overall behavior. As you and your dog progress, you will have the opportunity to complete the (testing for next level training) AKC Canine Good Citizen certification testing.

Our private lessons typically begin in your home and around your neighborhood, we gradually move on to areas like downtown Los Angeles or North Hollywood to introduce more distractions to your dog. You are the guiding force of these lessons; we address your concerns while also teaching obedience commands and giving you invaluable instruction on how to manage your dog. Our trainers assess your individual needs and create a program that is tailor made for you and your dog. Each Private Lesson package focuses on walking on a loose leash while also learning the obedience commands of sit, down, stand and stay and more. Each private lesson is approximately 45 minutes, 2 to 3 times a week for the duration of your training package.

Our training methods do not typically rely on food. Instead, we believe in using physical affection and verbal praise for reward.

We’ll pick up your dog and take him for 1 hour or longer. We’ll concentrate on correcting any of the behavioral issues you’re experiencing as well as all the usual obedience commands. Your dog will be around other dogs, other people and in various environments and situations to help develop him into a well-behaved companion. You also have one free private lesson at your disposal that allows you to have one-on-one time with your trainer.
