What Will My Dog Learn?


The 'Recall' command teaches a dog to come to you immediately when called. This command is crucial for the dog's safety in potentially dangerous situations, such as when the dog might run out into the road, approach other dogs or animals, or get lost in a crowded place. By responding effectively to the 'Recall' command, the dog can avoid danger and return safely to their owner. Furthermore, it is an essential element in fostering a useful communication system between the dog and the owner.


Leash Control

Loose leash walking offers numerous tangible benefits for both the dog and the owner. Some key benefits are:

  1. Enhanced Communication: Loose leash walking provides an excellent opportunity to improve communication between the dog and the owner. It teaches your dog to pay attention to your movements and cues, making the bonding experience more profound during walks.

  2. Promotes Focus: Loose leash walking helps hone your dog’s focus by teaching them to check in with you regularly. This focus results in a calmer and more relaxed walking experience.

  3. Eliminates Pulling: This method fundamentally discourages dogs from pulling, which is particularly important as pulling can lead to potential strain or injury for both the dog and the owner.

  4. Increases Enjoyment: Loose leash walking could turn a potentially stressful activity into a fulfilling and enjoyable experience for both the dog and its owner.

Sit Command

Firstly, it forms the foundation of good manners in dogs. A well-trained pup will assume the sitting position and stay put as soon as the hand signal or verbal cue is given, portraying good behavior.

Secondly, it provides a fundamental control tool, especially in various situations like crossing busy roads or encountering unfamiliar people or animals. Having your dog sit on command in such instances prevents potentially dangerous scenarios, ensuring their safety.

Finally, the "Sit" command is one of the first and most crucial skills that an owner should teach their dog. It's a good way to get dogs to remain still, making it easier for owners to manage them.


Climb/Place Command

Control: It helps in controlling your dog's movements in various circumstances, such as when answering the door, during meal times, or when needing space.

Calm: The "Place" command can be utilized to encourage calm behavior, especially when your dog is overexcited or needs to settle down.

Safety: It ensures your dog's safety by directing them to a particular location away from potential hazards.

Training: It's an excellent tool for building boundary training and enhancing overall obedience.

Versatility: The command can be adapted for various scenarios to place your dog in specific locales, like their bed or crate


Down Command

Control: Like "Sit", it is an essential basic command that helps control your dog in various situations. Restricting your dog's movement when necessary prevents possible mishaps.

Calming Effect: "Down" naturally inhibits a dog's activity and can help calm an overexcited or anxious dog.

Convenience: It's useful in social situations where you require the dog to stay in one place for an extended time, like when you're eating or entertaining guests.

Hierarchy: This command reiterates your position as the pack leader, reinforcing a healthy relationship between the owner and the dog.

Good Manners: Teaching "Down" reinforces good manners during mealtimes and when visitors are around.


Drop-It Command

Safety: It can prevent your dog from swallowing dangerous or harmful objects, presenting potential health risks. Quickly instructing your dog to release the object can protect them from injury or poisoning.

Control: The "Drop It" command allows owners to maintain control over what their dogs pick up, avoiding undesirable behaviors like grabbing items off counters or picking up trash on walks.

Resource Guarding: Teaching "Drop It" early on can discourage resource guarding tendencies, as it helps ensure that your dog willingly surrenders items.

Play: Establishing a reliable "Drop It" command enhances playtime by enabling seamless toy exchange, making activities like fetch more enjoyable.

Successful Training: In combination with other commands, "Drop It" plays a valuable role in solidifying obedience and positive behavior in your dog.

Advanced Obedience

Price: $2500 (If your dog graduated from our Basic or Intermediate program the price is $2000)

Covers everything in Basic Obedience but taking it up to a higher level.

Advanced Recall:

Advanced recall, in the context of dog training, refers to a higher level of recall training where the dog consistently responds to recall commands regardless of various distractions and in different environments. The goal of advanced recall is to ensure the dog's safety and reliability by conditioning them to return immediately to the handler on command.


This training usually begins with basic recall where the dog is taught to return to the handler in a controlled, distraction-free environment. As the dog becomes proficient in responding to the command, the level of distraction is gradually increased, and the training environment becomes more complex. This progress from controlled conditions to real-world environments with multiple distractions is what sets advanced recall apart.


Offleash Heeling:

Off-leash heeling is an advanced form of dog training where a dog walks in perfect stride with their handler without needing a leash for control or guidance. Trained dogs will maintain their position (typically with their shoulder or neck level with the handler's leg) regardless of the handler's speed or direction changes.


Training a dog for off-leash heeling generally starts with basic heel training on a leash and gradually progresses to more complex scenarios that include distractions, different environments, and eventually off the leash training.


'Sit' with an Implied Stay at and extended distance and with distractions:

"Sit with implied stay" refers to a practice in dog training where the command "stay" is considered inherent in the "sit" command. Essentially, when a dog is given the command to sit, it is expected to maintain that position until given another command or released.


This technique allows the handler to forego the use of a separate "stay" command and instead teaches the dog to understand that commands like "sit" imply that they should maintain their position until given further instruction. The dog learns to hold the sitting position until released, whether the handler has moved away or not.


This approach simplifies the communication between the handler and the dog, enhancing the effectiveness of training and obedience. It's a valuable tool in developing a well-disciplined and well-behaved dog.

‘Leave it’ Command:

The "Advanced Leave It" command in dog training is an elevated level of the basic "leave it" command where your dog is taught to ignore or avoid not just objects they could pick up, but also ignore distractions in their environment or even break their focus from something they are already engaged in.


In basic "Leave It" training, the dog is taught to move its attention away from an object in its immediate vicinity, like a piece of food or a toy. The advanced level of "Leave It" training involves teaching the dog to resist more enticing distractions. These could be other animals, people, or interesting smells on a walk.


Training a dog to master this command can increase their level of obedience and potentially prevent them from encountering dangerous situations. For example, if your dog is fixated on a squirrel across the street, an advanced leave it command could prevent your dog from darting into traffic.

Advanced 'Place' Command:

In dog training, the "place command" generally refers to teaching a dog to go to a designated spot, such as a mat or a bed, and remain there until released. This command can be useful in a variety of situations, like when visitors arrive or when the handler needs the dog to stay in a specific location.


"Advanced place” involves increased distractions, distance, or duration of the command. For example, having the dog maintaining their place during various distractions or having the dog remain in place for an extended period of time.

‘Down’ Command:

The "Advanced Down Command," similar to other advanced training commands in dog training, refers to teaching your dog to obey the "down" command under various conditions and distractions.


While "down" is a fundamental command where a dog is taught to lie down on command, the advanced version of this command involves practicing this in multiple environments, with various levels of distractions present, often from longer distances, and for extended periods of time.


This mastery level of the down command can prove useful in many situations. For instance, it could prevent a dog from jumping on guests or running towards other dogs or people. It is also beneficial in reinforcing the general discipline and control of the dog.
