Winston Salem Dog Training
Winston-Salem Dog Training has been added as a new category for this site. I have had many clients and many potential clients suggest that I create something specifically for the Winston-Salem dog community. You can always call me at 336-945-3232.
The first thing I will address is the Winston-Salem dog training program for obedience. I conduct five different types of obedience programs:
1. Dog Training at your home in the Winston-Salem and Triad areas.
This is usually the best type of training because we can train your dog on his home turf. Where he is more comfortable. Where he is most apt to misbehave.
The typical training program consists of 1 – 3 lessons usually spread out at weekly intervals. We do the basic obedience dog training with the following commands:
Let’s Go, Sit, Down, Sit-in-Motion, Down-in-Motion, Come, Place, Stay, Heel and Break. Occasionally we will add another command or two to this repertoire as needed for the family environment.
I show you how to train your dog and then you are expected to work with your dog on the specific commands until I return. We also address any dog behaviors that are needed.
As you are aware, you have to lead for positive change to take place. It is my job to show you how to lead and get results from your particular dog.
Remember, we are not here to intimidate, dominate, break your dog’s spirit or physically harm him in any way. We are here to make you the Leader of Your Pack and have your dog happily follow. This is not about Show Ring Obedience; it is about real life (although I can do that if you want it).
The initial session is $250.00. That first session is comprehensive. It lasts approximately 1.5 hours. We address why our dog does the things he/she does and how to fix them. We work on behaviors and begin obedience training … all designed to make you your dog’s leader. I truly believe this session will provide the foundation for you and your dog to have a wonderful life together. After the first session, each session is $150.00 and lasts an hour. Again, if you and your dog are committed, training can be done in 1 – 3 sessions. Many times one session is all that is needed to get you on the right path.
2. Dog training at my home in Winston-Salem.
I own a farm off of Robinhood Road in Winston-Salem. We do have a multitude of distractions here … horses, dogs, peacocks, cats, etc. This program can be fine as long as your dog does not have any specific problems that need to be addressed in your home.
The initial session is $250.00 for the Winston-Salem My Home Training Package. That first session is comprehensive and will last an hour and a half. Just as above, we address why our dog does the things he/she does and how to fix them. We work on behaviors and begin obedience training … all designed to make you your dog’s leader. I truly believe this session will provide the foundation for you and your dog to have a wonderful life together. After the first session, each session is $100.00 and lasts an hour. Everything else is the same as above. Again, if you and your dog are committed, training can be done in 1 – 3 sessions.
3. The 14-17 Day Dog Training Residency or Board and Train Dog Program
This is the most popular starter dog training program we offer. This program is designed for busy families who do not have the time to do everything with their dog or puppy to make them understand life is changing. Your dog will actually come live with me and my family in my home. He does not live in some outdoor kennel, but lives in my home. He becomes a member of my pack.
In this program we begin teaching him the obedience commands that are necessary for him to learn to adapt to pack structure. You come to visit and learn how to become the leader of your pack 2-3 times before he goes home. Usually there is 1-2 more lessons afterwards; but, I will offer you as many lessons as needed at no additional charge until you feel comfortable. I want you to succeed.
Many, many families/dog owners love this program as it still gives them hands-on in the training of their dog. The cost of the 14-17 Day Residency Program is $ 1275.00. Be sure to ask about our $100 Rebate!
4. The 30 Day Dog Training Residency or Board and Train Dog Program
This is also where your dog will actually come live with my family and me in my home. Again, he actually lives in our home with my family and my dogs. We do all of the obedience, behavior modification, etc. He/she actually becomes a member of my pack for a few weeks.
I want you to come visit your dog at least 2-3 times during the stay if possible. During your visit I will begin teaching you how to take control and become your dog’s leader. We chronicle how to follow-up on his training on video so that you can always review the proper training for a refresher.
At the end of his stay, I return your dog to your home and have at least 1-2 more training sessions at my farm. Of course, we can have many more training sessions if needed at no extra cost to you..
The cost of the Winston-Salem Residency Dog Training Package is $2975.00. This program is great for someone that is going on vacation or is planning a trip. I will only bring in 2-3 dogs at any given time in this program. Be sure to ask about our $100 Rebate!
Note: This is the minimum training time for dogs with behavioral issues.
5. The Starter Dog Training Vacation Residency Program
This is a new program that has been requested by you. Are you planning to be out of town on vacation or a short trip? If so, we can begin a dog training program that will start teaching your dog things that are important to you. It can be done in lieu of boarding your dog plus your dog will live with me in my home.
Give me a call at 336-945-3232 and we can figure out what is best for you and your dog. Don’t just board your dog, improve you and your dog’s life together.
I am not doing group classes at this time. I was involved with the initial dog training classes at Tanglewood Park in Clemmons, NC a number of years ago. While I enjoyed the social aspects, I just had too many clients not willing to put in the work that they needed with their dog.
Call me at 336-945-3232.
Training your dog is a lot like life. You get out of it what you put into it. Your are going to have to work to show your dog that you have what it takes to lead. The dog training packages above are designed to help you become the Leader of your Pack without dominating, intimidating or hurting your dog.
