What We Do
We teach obedience, not just commands.
The purpose of obedience training is not about teaching the dog to do tricks for treats, it’s about living with a well-mannered pet dog that you enjoy taking along wherever you go – coffee at the cafe and off leash at the beach. It’s about having a calm dog that watches for instructions, settles down on cue, walks politely on leash, waits at doors, and comes when called.
Pet Etiquette gives you the fastest, most effective solutions to your dog training needs. And that is private dog training. Whether you’re wrangling a new puppy, an unruly adolescent, or learning that you can teach an old dog new tricks, our affordable, private dog training programs are for you.
Group obedience classes are OK for getting some of the basics down, but for real training that meets your needs and your pet’s needs, one-one-one training is needed. And that’s what Pet Etiquette offers. Not all dogs do well in group sessions, much less get through them without feeling anxious or over stimulated by new people, dogs, and smells. Successful dog training depends on attention. If a dog is distracted from his owner, progress is slow.
We’ll come to your home and observe your dog in his natural, every day surroundings. Sessions include a combination of educational information, observation and assessment of your dog, discussion of animal behavior, behavior modification and training techniques as well as direct, hands on practice opportunities. You will get tips and techniques for easy ways to elicit good behavior. This way, the whole family can get involved and learn how the program will benefit you and your pet.
The training takes place in your home, or a location of your choosing, such as the park or on walks around your neighborhood. Scheduling is truly flexible–we don’t need to meet on the same day of the week or hour of the day each time. If you have vacation or business commitments, we can skip a week. Not feeling well? Call us and we’ll reschedule!
You get 100% instructor attention. Since you are the only student, you have our undivided attention, which means all class time is devoted to your dog and your needs to ensure you get the best results. Our training methods are rewards based and humane–simple to learn and use, and fit easily into family life.
Most people are surprised at how relatively little time it takes to teach their pets basic commands, and what a fun and rewarding experience dog training can be. Can you imagine owning a dream dog? One you can take everywhere. One that comes every time you call them and lays calmly on his bed when you tell them to! You already have your dream dog. The only piece missing is the training.
Choose from convenient private lessons or our even easier board & train program. No matter what the problem, dog training will only make it better, and our training is guaranteed. Our methods are distinctly motivational and highly effective. Why Wait?
