Training Both ends of the leash

Training Package

Our Training Package is designed to give your dog a solid obedience foundation, Basic Manners and Behavior Modification

At Complete Control K-9, we have one training program that we specialize in.   It’s our residential in home board and train program. Our program is called “Manners and Freedom”. We have found the residential program offers the most optimal success. Instead of meeting with your trainer once a week.  Your dog lives with us, and has the ability to intervene and address behaviors 24/7. This environment provides provides the consistency, which is imperative for a dog’s learning.  This is very hard to provide in your home setting.  Your home setting sometimes becomes hectic with daily activities.  We take that stress and burden from you!   It is critical to set an initial solid foundation of understanding with your dog, which will provide the ability to communicate with your dog in a language he or she understands.

Advantages of the Resident / Board and Train Program:

  • Faster Results:  Your dog learns directly from a professional and receives several hours of hands-on training each day.  Training is one on one attention. We have two professional trains, we only take two dogs at a time.
  • Immersive Learning: Your dog spends the entire day in a controlled and structured environment where every decision is guided and reinforced. Many dogs find this type of environment to be therapeutic.
  • Less Stress:  You allow us to work through the challenging early stages of training and the tedious repetition that you may not have time to consistently apply.
  • Enhanced Customization:  The amount of time we spend with your dog in the Board and Train program allows us to get to know him or her on a much deeper level. This way we can develop specific strategies and exercises directly targeted toward each individual. This is especially valuable in difficult behavioral cases.
  • Reduces correction by teaching desired behaviors, exercising large numbers of repetition which often extinguishes problematic behavior without conflict, combat or stress.
