Basic Obedience Training

Whether pulling on the leash during walks, bounding out an open door, or jumping up on guests when they come into your home, an out-of-control dog can cause chaos in your household, create problems in social situations and potentially be in harm’s way. In contrast, a well-behaved dog is always a pleasure to be around. Not only is obedience training essential for your pet’s safety and well-being, it is also vitally important for you – the owner – to gain control of your dog’s behavior early on and let them know that they can count on you for direction and discipline.

Although it’s never too late to start, the earlier obedience training begins, the better. It is important to start working with your dog as soon as he/she comes into your home. That way, typical puppy behaviors such as nipping, chewing, and jumping up can easily be corrected before they become a problem. Through the Puppy Program, Jim offers guidance and useful tips for new dog owners, helping to ensure that you get off to a positive start. For dogs eighteen weeks or older, the in-kennel Board and Train Program offers the best results in the shortest amount of time. Your dog will learn the basic obedience commands: come, sit down, stay and heel and variations of all of these.

Dogs naturally love to please their owners and really enjoy the stimulation and interaction that obedience training provides. By working together consistently and practicing the commands on a daily basis, you will make an important connection with your dog, build confidence, and establish a lasting, positive and rewarding relationship with your pet.

Although we are located in Berea, KY, much of our happy dog owners come from as far away as Lexington, KY.

The key to successful obedience training is your commitment and willingness to spend time every day working and playing with your dog.
