For the babies between the ages of 8-20 weeks old, Good Dog
Training has its Puppy Kindergarten class. We focus on good
manners with other puppies, potty training techniques, beginning sit,
down, leave it, and come games. While the main objective is to
begin to teach your pet the beginning of basic commands, it is just
as important for the puppy's upbringing to be involved socially with
as many other dogs as possible. Playtime at the class is also an
extremely important social setting for the puppies. This class is
limited to three puppies. The length of the course is five weeks
and the cost is $125.00 plus tax for five lessons.
One on One Instruction
Basic obedience is the staple of any dog training. GDTS offers such training at our facility or in your home. This is the fastest and most recognized way to having your dog learn the basic commands. It ensures complete individual attention and much more from a Certified Professional trainer. There are five sessions in this program, with length between sessions varying to make sure your dog has fully grasped what is being taught. The cost of this program is $375.00 plus tax.
We also address any behavioral problem your dog may be experiencing. An initial in-home consultation is $75.00 for the hour and will cover most general issues. If it is a more complicated behavioral problem, more sessions may be needed. During this time, our trainer will evaluate your dog and determine the best course of action for training or behavior modification. No issue is too small or too big; these usually consist of potty training, chewing, digging, dog-on-dog reactivity, and dog-on-people reactivity.
Canine Good Citizen
Diane Sullivan has been an American Kennel Club-certified Canine Good
Citizen evaluator for more than 20 years. This test is written by the AKC with
10 different tests the dog must pass to become a CGC. The charge for this
test is $20.00. Once your dog passes, you will mail in the results to AKC
and receive a CGC Certificate.
