1) Mayhem To Manners 6 Lesson Leash and Collar Program

Our 6 lesson ‘Mayhem to Manners’ private dog training program enables owners to get ahead of problems in the older puppy or young adult dog (5 months to 10 months) before they become self-reinforcing behaviors. This training includes guidance on how to live with the dog in appropriate, constructive ways to facilitate training efforts. We help create a meaningful strategy that provides for practical, effective handling and productive management that will directly impact the undesirable behaviors most owners encounter from young adolescent dogs.

Our training creates a clear means of communication through proper leash handling, positive reinforcement, and the correction of unwanted behaviors that produces willing, cooperative companions.

Obedience and behavior cannot be separated. Obedience is what a dog ‘knows’. Behavior is what a dog ‘does’. We use one in order to either enhance or extinguish the other.

Obedience is simply a way to communicate with the dog that assures predictable behaviors. An obedient dog is a mindful, enjoyable companion that willingly and happily accepts human leadership and guidance.

This program teaches the following obedience commands for reliability on leash:

  • To walk politely in heel position at the owners’ left side.
  • To sit, lie down, and stand
  • To ‘stay’ until released
  • To come when called, and many others

Owners will receive access to our on-line community where they will be supplied with weekly lesson plans, video tutorials and training suggestions.

Please expect to dedicate 6 days a week, for approximately 30 minutes to an hour a day, to successfully complete this training. Owners with mobility issues may wish to consider a surrogate handler for the duration of the training (must be of the age of majority, and willing to make the time commitment for the duration of the training).

Students will be required to submit video homework for training support. Success is contingent on owner effort and commitment to the training. Technology is useful to monitor progress during the week when direct supervision in not available.

Training dogs requires planning, time, and measurable goals. It requires a deliberate commitment and the desire to succeed.

2) Measurable Standards 10 Lesson Novice Program

Our 10 lesson ‘Companion Dog’ private dog training program is modeled after the AKC Companion Dog Novice title and is designed to help owners resolve not only a generalized lack of obedience, but to address behavior concerns such as leash reactivity (defensive aggression because of fear) towards humans or other animals. Other issues, like destructive behavior or anxiety, are easily addressed by teaching the dog alternative actions for otherwise unsuitable behaviors. This training includes guidance on how to live with the dog in appropriate, constructive ways to facilitate training efforts. We help create a meaningful strategy that provides for practical, effective handling and productive management that will directly impact the undesirable behaviors dogs develop when allowed to practice them without consequence.

Our training creates a clear means of communication through proper leash handling, positive reinforcement, and the correction of unwanted behaviors that produces willing, cooperative companions and replaces unsuitable behaviors with more thoughtful, appropriate choices.

Obedience and behavior cannot be separated. Obedience is what a dog ‘knows’. Behavior is what a dog ‘does’. We use one in order to either enhance or extinguish the other.

Obedience is simply a way to communicate with the dog that assures predictable behaviors. An obedient dog is a mindful, enjoyable companion that willingly and happily accepts human leadership and guidance.

This program teaches the following obedience commands for reliability on and off leash:

  • To walk politely in heel position, regardless of distraction or temptation
  • To sit, lie down, and stand, accepting the proximity of distractions and temptations without protest
  • To ‘stay’ until released, regardless of distraction or temptation
  • To come when called, regardless of distraction or temptation
  • To retreat to a specific destination in the home and remain there until released
  • Many useful skills integral to self control and harmony in a human home

Owners will receive access to our on-line community where they will be supplied with weekly lesson plans, video tutorials and training suggestions.

Please expect to dedicate a minimum of 6 days a week, for approximately 30 minutes to potentially over an hour a day, to successfully complete this training. Owners with mobility issues may wish to consider a surrogate handler for the duration of the training (must be of the age of majority, and willing to make the time commitment for the duration of the training).

There are weekly homework assignments and online students will be required to submit video homework for training support. Success is contingent on owner effort and commitment to the training. Technology is useful to monitor progress when direct supervision in not available. Training dogs with the goal of achieving any measurable improvement in behavior is not a recreational hobby. It requires a serious commitment and the desire to succeed.

3) Six Lesson Electronic Collar Program

Electronic collar training is an excellent alternative for the owner that is physically overmatched by their dog. Large breed dogs owned by smaller than average adults pose a serious safety risk. Any individual that doesn’t have complete control over their dog is at risk for injury, but owners that are physically compromised because of  size disparity or health issues are at greater risk.

Remote collar training is also an excellent alternative for dogs that suffer from hypoplastic trachea and other issues that commonly affect brachycephalic breeds like bulldogs, as well as any dog that has sustained an injury to the neck.

Electronic collar training has moved out of the dark ages and has become an incredible tool for communication without having to be weaponized by poor understanding, or simple lack of actual experience with one.

Contrary to what social media would have one believe, they are not the tool of Satan, and often offer hope for owners that previously had none.

We teach how to effectively incorporate this tool into training by teaching its use as a motivator, how to ‘shape’ behavior, and how to modify behavior. The dog learns that the stimulation from the collar means the same thing as leash pressure, and that the presence or absence of electronic collar pressure indicates right action.

Our electronic collar training creates a clear means of communication through the understanding of ecollar pressure, proper leash handling, positive reinforcement, and the correction of unwanted behaviors that produces willing, cooperative companions.

Obedience and behavior cannot be separated. Obedience is what a dog ‘knows’. Behavior is what a dog ‘does’. We use one in order to either enhance or extinguish the other.

Obedience is simply a way to communicate with the dog that assures predictable behaviors. An obedient dog is a mindful, enjoyable companion that willingly and happily accepts human leadership and guidance.

This program teaches the following obedience commands for reliability with the use of an ecollar:

  • To walk politely in heel position at the owners’ left side.
  • To sit, lie down, and stand
  • To ‘stay’ until released
  • To come when called
  • To retreat to a designated location and remain there until released

Owners will be supplied with weekly tele-calls, lesson plans, video tutorials and training suggestions.

5) Right Start Puppy Six Lesson Training Program

Our 6 week “Right Start Puppy” online training program is designed to help owners influence their puppy’s development so their experiences positively shape who they become as adult dogs. During each one hour session over the course of 6 weeks, we will focus on imprinting appropriate social behavior, learn how to prevent problems, establish strong communication, and lay the foundation for lifelong learning. We help owners differentiate between healthy socialization, and exposure to things that could potentially create problems later on in your puppy’s life. 

We teach you how to teach our puppy:

  • To tolerate and accept physical restraint and confinement without protest
  • To develop resilience through positive novel experiences
  • To learn through the ‘discovery’ process how to earn reinforcement and how to avoid consequences; how to willingly volunteer cooperative behaviors and never engage in dangerous ones
  • How to accommodate their crate, training equipment and grooming tools that will be used throughout their lives

You will learn how to develop clear, easy-to-understand means of communication, and how to assure successful outcomes for your puppy as they grow.

Our online training program will grant you access to our online resources that include reading material, instructional video and other media, designed to help puppy owners raise and train their new pup successfully!
