Canine Obedience is the foundation of all the diverse canine disciplines. The primary goal of this training is not simply respond to basic commands, but to develop a well rounded, happy, obedient and socially acceptable canine. For this to happen, Black Paw Canine utilizes patience and the dog’s natural drives to learn basic obedience and social skills.
Many times we hear that the client’s dogs were great in class but not outside the classroom environment. One thing that is true with our dogs as well as ourselves, is the old expression, “practice makes perfect”. At Black Paw, we understand that the training that we offer is not just for the dog. We want the owner/handler to understand that an “obedience” relationship is earned, not bought. Our goal is that you and your furry friend can experience the world, have adventures and build lasting memories. Our trainers implement training regimens that prepare the dog for this hectic world. We want you to enjoy that happy hour drink on the patio with friends or to go on enjoyable walks with your canine, confident in their behavior.
When you train with Black Paw Canine the worries about your canine lashing out, getting impatient and barking, or pulling you all over the place disappear. We appreciate our clients and want you to have the best life with your canine!
Finally, we want to put one adage to rest. You can teach an old dog new tricks! Old habits may die hard, but it can be done.
In-home training assessment/consultation for training or behavior issues start at $100 (1-1.5 hrs)
Private lessons $75/hr (clients only)
Board & Train
Board & Train allows our expert trainers to have numerous and controlled repetitions. In the end, this can save you both time and money, as this level of training is not obtainable in weekly training sessions.
Must have Level 1 skills in order to move on to Level 2.
Puppy Imprinting & Lessons
The best time to start working with your canine, is… as soon as possible. Dogs, like humans, begin to learn as soon as they become aware of their surroundings. Habituation, (forming habits) is happening all the time. If a behavior results in something that the puppy likes, then that behavior will be repeated. Puppy classes are the key to starting your canine off on the correct paw. The first 8-11 weeks in the puppy’s life is critical to prevent unwanted behavioral issues in the future. Our staff truly enjoys this training and we look forward to helping you with your newest family member.
