Dog Training Courses

Polite Dog Program

In Our Training Facility – $300, In Your Home – $495

Every dog is different and so is every family. That’s why we can get such great results by working with you one on one; we can tailor each session and your homework assignments to your dog’s personality.

During this course, you will learn how to read your dog’s body language. I want you to be able to quickly recognize when your dog is excited, stressed, nervous, irritated, etc and how to help your dog get back to a feeling of calm as quickly as possible.

You will also learn how to get your dog to walk on a loose leash with distractions. There will be plenty of time for you to ask questions and for us to address other common behavioral issues such as: potty training, crate training, digging, barking, jumping, behaving around guests and children and anything else that your dog needs help with.

After the training, I will always make time to answer questions via telephone and email at no additional charge.

This course includes:

  • 3 sessions
  • In your own home or in our training facility, so we can teach your dog how to behave politely.
  • Free email and phone support after the training
  • Step by step homework assignments after each session
  • One on one attention so we can custom tailor each session to you and your dog
  • This course is designed for dogs 7 weeks young to 20 years old

Electronic Collar Training – $595

Your dog will learn to follow you and respond to your voice both on and off leash during 4 custom tailored training sessions. Our e-collar training program is truly unique in that your dog will want to follow your lead because following you is more interesting and fun than any of the other dogs, people, sounds or smells you find on your outdoor hike or walk. Utah is full of great outdoor opportunities for dogs and I want you and your dog to be able to enjoy them together.

This training tool should be used in conjunction with lots of well-timed praise, treats and toys to ensure the training process is fun. We will teach you how to use this tool with very low levels of stimulation; when we correct your dog using the e-collar his response will be similar to how he’d react if he had an itch on his neck. The correction is that light!

This course includes:

  • 4 training sessions
  • Electronic training collar ($190 value)
  • 2 free days of drop off training
  • Everything you get with our Polite Dog Program listed above
  • Simple to follow homework instructions after each session
  • This course is designed for dogs 4 months young to 20 years old

Boarding School Programs (Board and Train)

Drop your dog off for some professional, one on one training. Your dog will return home after boarding school with some very important life skills that will make life easier for you and your dog. Your new, calm and obedient dog comes with a lifetime of free phone and email support, as well as, 1 year of unlimited training sessions. Your dog will thank you.

As the owner, you need to be able to see how we transform your dog’s behavior and be able to replicate it at home. That’s why you will receive regular updates during training and private training at the end of your dog’s boarding school.

We want your dog to have all the things she loves during boarding school including treats, affection, toys, play time, freedom and lots of sniffs; your dog will learn that all the best stuff in life comes from humans and that she can have them all if she follows your lead.

Boarding school programs include:

    • High quality electronic collar ($190 value)
    • 2 hour go home training session
    • Simple to follow homework instructions
    • Fun learning environment
    • Free phone and email support for life
    • 1 year of unlimited training sessions
    • This course is designed for dogs 5 months young to 20 years old. For puppies under 5 months old see our Perfect Puppy Program

Boarding school goals and results vary depending on the challenges presented by each dog and owner. Follow up training sessions are sometimes necessary and are included for 1 year after the boarding school is complete.

We keep boarding school fun for the dogs and on the last day, comes our favorite part where we teach you!

Fresh Start (5 Days) $595

It’s surprising how much your dog can learn in just 5 days. We’ll get your dog started on all the basics: walking nicely on a leash, greeting other people and dogs politely, coming when called and other basic commands you’d like your dog to learn. When your dog goes home he’ll know what is expected of him and it’ll be your job to turn his new found obedience skills into permanent habits.

Dream Dog (2 Weeks) $995

Your dog will learn to walk nicely on a leash, greet friends politely, come when called and to obey simple house rules that all dog owners appreciate. We will also teach your dog to stop jumping, digging, barking excessively and counter surfing.

Your dog will have multiple training sessions every day of the week. All you need to do is supply the dog food, and we’ll handle everything else!

Complete Companion (4 Weeks) $1,995

Includes everything in the 2 programs above but with lots of extra time to help your dog’s new skills become his default settings. This is the ideal program if your dog has lots of anxiety to overcome or if you’ll be traveling.

Sunday Social Classes

Held Outdoors: Puppies and small dogs (25 lbs and smaller) from 10:30-11:15pm. Big dogs (26 lbs+) from 11:30-12:30pm at The Stable Place in West Valley City.

Come learn how to read dog body language. You will learn a ton about your own dog’s body language, as well as, when you should and when you shouldn’t interfere with your dog’s social interactions.

If your dog growls at another dog, should you always correct it? The correct answer is no! Sometimes you shouldn’t! If you want to know why, come to class and we’ll teach you.

There are many subtle signals dogs are sending to each other and to us all the time. We want you to be able to read those signals.

*Assessment is required before attending social class, the cost is $50 for an assessment and it includes a full day of daycare. After this initial assessment, if your dog passes, the social class is free for life!

This class is high energy and fast paced. Due to the exciting nature of our outdoor class it is not appropriate for all dogs. Our outdoor class is donations based only, we do have to rent the horse arena we use so we hope you will help us by making a donation each week.

All proceeds from our Sunday Social Classes are donated to CAWS.

If you’d like to see pictures/videos of our training facility and the horse arena please visit our instagram.

P.S. Stay tuned to our facebook page for class updates. We cancel the class sometimes when we host training events and when the weather is bad.
