SATX Dog Training Programs
We’ve developed unique programs for owners who wish to put their dog’s training into the hands of a professional. These rigorous training programs prove especially beneficial for hyperactive dogs, dogs with complicated behavior problems, as well as working/sport dogs.
When you choose a residency program, the training of your dog will be accomplished quickly without disrupting your busy schedule. These programs include teaching your dog to:
HEEL - Your dog walks closely at your side on command.
LETS GO - Your dog will come back to you and continue to walk with you with a loose leash.
SIT - Your dog sits quietly and patiently until released.
DOWN - Your dog lies down until released.
PLACE - Your dog will learn to stay on a mat that limits his/her movement to a designated area.
BEHAVIOR PROBLEM SOLVING – We’ll provide assistance on modifying unwanted behaviors such as jumping up, barking, leash pulling, etc.
INDIVIDUALIZED PROGRAM - If you have a sport dog that needs specific training or have a pet dog with specific quirks, we build our programs to target your specific needs while also working on the above listed commands.
The length of the program depends on your dog's needs and training goals and will be determined upon evaluation.
FOLLOW UP LESSONS FOR BOARD AND TRAIN PROGRAMS
During your dog's residency program, you’ll be provided with a series of follow-up lessons that are included in your program. These lessons will provide instruction on how to handle and communicate with your newly trained dog. In order for all of our residency programs to be successful, it’s imperative for owners to commit to incorporating what their dog has learned into everyday life.
Private Lesson Packages
The Private Lesson Packages are designed to create a lesson plan that is right for you and your pup with your goals being the focus of the program. Private lessons do not include an e-collar and must be purchased from one of our approved brands and must sign up for a minimum 8 lessons. Lessons are recommended to be held every week and/or every other week.
Day Training Packages
We are now offering Day Training where you drop off at our facility and we take your dog on an all-day adventure all while practicing good manners and working on socialization and confidence building. We will be going to places such as parks and pet friendly stores and they will be traveling in a crash tested Ruffland Kennel. At the end of the week if you have signed up for our bundle you end the week with a private lesson where we will go over your pups' strengths and what skills we are still working on! This is perfect for sport dogs that need more stimulation throughout the workday as well as someone who works long hours but still wants to come home to their best friend.
Complimentary Evaluation with Signup of any Package
($30 per evaluation)
Before beginning any obedience or puppy training at San Antonio Dog Training Co., your dog will be evaluated by one of our skilled trainers and if you sign up for one of our packages the $30 will go to said package. It’s an important step in determining which training approach your dog will respond to the most.
