NOT EVERYBODY HAS THE TIME OR EXPERIENCE TO WORK WITH THEIR DOG AT HOME.  This is exactly why STAY & LEARN is one of my most popular services.

My Stay & Learn services will see your dog complete the next level in their Obedience, work on earning their CGC, Trick or Therapy Dog title, complete a Muttley Manners course or work on specific targeted behaviors that you are having trouble with.

Only one dog is ever here at a time for training and they are an integrated part of the day to day life here.  They live inside with my guys like any other member of the family.



This allows for them to constantly be learning general house manners as well as receive private training time each day with targeted exercises specific to your needs. Keep in mind – all dogs learn at their own pace, so what can be accomplished in a few days with one dog may take longer with another.

You can elect to receive photo and video updates and on your return, your new SuperStar will show you what they have learned. I will show you how to get the same results at home and you can come back anytime within the next 30 days for a FREE follow up session.

You are welcome to come out at any time and watch/participate unlike some places that don't want you to see how they achieve their results - ie prong/shock collars.

I have 2, 4 and 8 week programs depending on the level of training you require. A 2 week stay usually equates to about 4-5 weeks of training - so it would see them finish a puppy class and Star Puppy or perhaps CGC.

At the end of each week you will be sent an update with video/photos and a progress report and are more than welcome to come out and work with your pup.

At the end of the program - there will be a 2 hour handover to make sure you know how to get the same results at home and 2 weeks later an in-home follow up session.

And of course you always have access to me by phone, email or Skype.

PAYMENT PLANS ARE AVAILABLE ON REQUEST.  A 25% nonrefundable deposit is required to secure your desired dates.

Charlie - an Australian Shepherd Service Dog in training stays with us for a few weeks while his Mom has surgery.  We are working on some tasks to help her after she returns home such as item retrieval for dropped items.

ADVANCED - 60 days - $3800

Commonly used for more advanced behaviors
(All On/Off Leash with extended Distance / Distraction / Duration)

As above plus - CGC certification or Therapy Dog Prep started. The level of difficulty is much greater and this program is not generally suitable for dogs less than 6 months old due to the level of focus required but I have seen younger dogs complete it very well. It depends so much on the dog itself and their learning style.
