In-Home Intensive Training
Oakland and Alameda Service Only
2-Week Program + 2 follow up sessions
This two-week program is designed for dogs in need of a solid foundation in obedience. Geared towards dogs that pull on leash with mild reactivity (barking and lunging), don’t listen to commands, lack impulse control, don’t come when called, jump on guests when they come over. Your dog will learn sit, down, stay, place, come, heel and proper leash manners.
3-Week Program + 2 follow up sessions
This three-week program is designed for dogs with more severe behavioral issues such as dog aggression, fear and nervousness, anxiety, resource guarding, leash reactivity, and in need of a solid foundation in obedience. We will address leash pulling and reactivity (barking and lunging), ignoring commands, impulse control issues, not coming when called, and jumping on guests when they come over. As a part of the basic foundation your dog will learn sit, down, stay, place, come, heel and proper leash manners.
The format of the In-Home Intensive program consists of me doing the initial heavy lifting of training your dog in the comfort of your own home and then teaching you how to maintain it. I will come to your home every day Monday-Friday for an hour and work on all the skills necessary to achieve the goals we have set from improved impulse control, obedience, recall, proper leash walking, aggression and reactivity. Etc. I will document valuable parts of the session with video and written updates on the skills we worked on as well as notes on how to maintain it when I walk out the door. The benefit of an In-Home Intensive program is the daily consistency your dog will get from a trained professional all in the comfort of your own home. However, the ultimate goal is for your dog to continue to listen to you to maintain his good behavior when I am gone. Sustainable results happen when your dog learns to believe in YOU and YOUR leadership, so in order to see the results you want, maintenance is crucial to keeping your dog accountable of his new skills. I will be setting the foundation, building the structure with you, but it’s up to you to apply and maintain the pretty paint. I like cheesy analogies.
Don’t worry! You will have my ongoing support along the way. I’m just a text, phone call or email away for specific questions and troubleshooting or to hear wonderful updates, of course!
