Therapy Dog Training (classes coming soon!)

  • 1 session = $70

  • 5 sessions = $300

  • 10 sessions = $500

  • Class pricing TBA

 

Description: There is no love as pure and unconditional as the love of a dog which is why professionals around the world are recognizing the real therapeutic value animals can bring to the table. Do you think your dog has what it takes to become a therapy dog? Take this class or set up an evaluation and find out! In this class you will learn what it is to be, and the criteria to become a therapy dog team. Therapy dogs not only have to exhibit the ability to behave in an obedient manner in a wide variety of contexts, but they must also demonstrate a very predictable, calm, friendly demeanor towards both people and other dogs. If you are looking for a way to give back and get involved in the community with your four legged companion this class will provide you with the skills and knowledge necessary to do so and could ultimately result in you and your furry friend becoming a registered therapy dog team! *Taking this class does NOT guarantee your dog will pass the therapy dog evaluation, and there are no refunds if your dog does not pass*

 

Canine Good Citizen (Classes coming soon!)

  • Class pricing TBA

 

Description: The AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) program was developed in 1989 to encourage responsible pet ownership and acknowledge good basic manners from our canine comrades. The benefits of having a CGC certified dog reaches beyond the pet community. Some apartment complexes, insurance agencies and even state legislatures have began recognizing the CGC program as a means of advocating for responsible dog ownership and may provide special privileges and exceptions to owners with a certified dog! Many therapy dog programs are now making CGC certifications a perquisite while others simply incorporate items of the CGC test into their testing process. Most importantly this program helps us assure that the dogs we love will always be welcomed and well respected members of our community. Spending the time to train for the 10 items of the CGC will lay the foundation for countless other possibilities you and your dog may enjoy together in the years to come! *Taking this class does NOT guarantee your dog will pass the CGC evaluation, and there are no refunds if your dog does not pass*

If you don’t like the idea of your dog leaving the house, we can simply play/train your pup in the comfort and safety of your home. This program ensures your dog is getting the mental and physical exercise animal professionals recommend which in turn curbs destructive behaviors that stem from stagnant lifestyles. This program will enable you to walk out your door feeling good as opposed to guilty whenever you leave Fido home to make the bacon!
