Manners & Obedience

Manners & Obedience =

Your Dog + Training!

Dog Training Santa RosaUsing the AKC standard for obedience, our primary education level curriculum focuses on basic training commands, manners, and crate training if needed. Each dog is an individual and has specific needs so training is customized to your dog… it’s a holistic approach to dog training. Upon graduation your dog’s behavior repertoire will include:






Training with distractions

Beginning off-leash work

Training Options for Obedience/Manners:

Option 1: K9 Boarding School

We do the training! dogs stay on-site M-F (going home for weekends) for 3 weeks plus 3 weeks of private lessons.

Option 2: 3×3 Program – Learn with your dog!

A package of 9 private/semi-private training lessons customized to your dog’s needs. 3 lessons per week for 3 weeks in a row it’s a fast-paced fun way to quickly get desired results.

Option 3: 3×4 Program

For puppies under 6 months with short attention spans…shorter training sessions. 3x week for 4 weeks = 12 sessions. Can be combined with a daycare plan for socializing.

Jump Start

Boarding School by the day or night to problem-solve specific behaviors and get prepared for the 3×3 Program


Infinite custom combination of options 1-3!  Dogs with anxiety/fear or leash reactivity likely need this option. We design a plan that we think will best suit your dog and you. Then we make adjustments, as needed, during the training program for your dog’s success.
