Looking to fast track your dog’s training? Just don’t have the time to devote to training your dog, yourself? Your dog is too large or too strong for you to handle? Or maybe you feel that an expert will be able to train your pup better? K9 Basics offers arguably the best dog boarding and training program, not just in New Jersey, but anywhere in the U.S.
Clients routinely come from as far South as Georgia, as far North as Vermont, and as far west as Western Pennsylvania. But get this – we even had one client who drove her pet dog all the way from Alaska to board and train with us!
Our program involves training sessions three times daily, and lasts for three weeks. It is a balanced program in which your dog is handled by all of our experienced trainers. This helps to ensure that you’ll be able to successfully control the dog at the completion of the training.
By concentrating the training within this three-week period, your dog is able to progress much faster than ones who participate in our regular K9 group obedience training. Since your dog is boarding and training with us, progress and changes can be observed over a larger window of time. We are able to problem-solve the issues that arise on a daily basis, and modify your dog’s behavior immediately.
Just as with group training, we teach dogs to perform regardless of any distractions that naturally occur in the real world. This includes interactions with other dogs, people, noises, smells and so on. This is not a cookie cutter method: all dogs are different. But our overall principles of training do apply to board and train as well.
Some of the areas we focus on are attention to command, off-leash control (including heel, recall, and distance control), and pack socialization off-leash.
Once the dog boarding and training program has concluded, you’ll need to reinforce the new behaviors. Included are one in-home follow up lesson, as well as unlimited group training for the life of your dog.
