New clients interested in obedience or behavioral training will begin with a either a private lesson package, or a board and train program. Upon completion of those programs, we offer a membership based group training option to provide dog owners with an option to continue to practice their training, and get additional tips from a trainer at an affordable price.
We also offer a package option which includes the maintenance training and private lessons together. These Packages are one of our most popular options as they provide the benefits of both one-on-one training and group training. We begin with Private Lessons where we move at your pace and target the skills and behaviors that are important to you. You will then be approved by your trainer for the group class that is appropriate for you and your dog. These packages can allow for your dog to socialize and give you a venue to proof your obedience commands around various distractions with the help of an experienced trainer. Group classes are also a cost-effective way to maintain your training, providing more sessions for less money.
At K-9 Connection, our group maintenance classes are unique for several reasons. Everyone who attends is required to have completed some foundational one-on-one training, so that the dogs and humans are prepared for the level of distraction that the group setting provides. This creates a more orderly and controlled environment, which facilitates easier and more advanced learning for everyone. Additionally, the exercises are designed to teach your dog how to pay attention to you in the face of real world distractions. You can expect a level of obedience that goes far beyond the average training class.
