Dog Training Programs

Rock Your Walk
Is walking your dog a pain? Do you dread going outside and having your dog pull you down the street? We can change that and bring the joy back into your walk in as little as two sessions.

A walk with your dog sets the tone for all the other small interactions you have together, and pulling, growling or lunging at dog, people, and bikes puts stress on your relationship that doesn’t have to be there! Our goal is to help you create a happier, calmer dog for you to enjoy and results in a fundamental shift in their state of mind.

The initial 2 hour session consists of a consultation, assessment, and lesson with you and your dog. Your dog will change before your eyes in this session, and we will give you the tools to continue the transformation. The second session is one hour.
*Price includes a Herm Sprenger prong/training collar (the best!).

Take the Lead
This program is a great choice for those who would like to play a more active role in their dog’s training and have time for homework in between sessions. We will help you get a better behaved, calmer dog, both inside and outside the house! You will see a difference after your first session and can feel good that your dog is the best behaved on the block!

*Price includes a Herm Sprenger prong/training collar (the best!).

Day Training Transformation

A great alternative to our “Take The Lead” program, this program shifts the heavy lifting from you to a trainer! Your dog will spend one full day with a trainer to lay the groundwork for better impulse control and a shift in their state of mind. At the end of the day, you will be amazed at the difference! Upon your return home that day, we will begin to teach you how to maintain that training. We will then return for three additional lessons in your home.

Board and Train

Two Week Board and Train (On and Off-Leash)
(Price does not include e-collar which ranges from $199 to $290 depending on your dog’s needs)
*For dogs older than 6 months with no behavior issues

K9 Harmony’s two week board and train is our most popular option! It’s an immersive experience where your dog will live with us 24/7 and be exposed to a new life of structure, rules, socialization, and supervised play sessions. By living at my home, your dog will receive a solid foundation and a shift in their state-of-mind that will make it easy for you to continue their training once they return to your home. This will allow you to include your dog in your life so you can love the dog you’ve got and have a deeper, more fulfilling relationship with each other!

We specialize in state-of-the-art, low-level, communication-style E-collar training. Our E-collar program is nothing like the E-collar training of old. Contemporary E-collar training uses the softest, most gentle remote communication, and is one of the most humane and effective approaches to dog training available.

In this program, your dog will learn the following skills and commands:

  • Walk politely with you on and off-leash (Say goodbye to pulling and excitability on your walks)
  • Sit/Stay
  • Down/Stay
  • Place command
  • Recall/Come
  • Crate Training
  • Waiting for Food
  • Waiting at Thresholds (Door, Car, Crate, etc.)

We will also focus on minor behavior issues such as:

  • Jumping, Nipping, Mouthing
  • Excessive Barking
  • Counter- Surfing
This program includes a 30 minute consultation on our starting day and a 2 hour follow-up at the end of the program where we will transfer all of the training, techniques, and strategies to ensure continued success. Each dog receives a prong/training collar.  We will select a remote collar model based on your dog’s needs.

 

Programs can be customized to fit your needs so please ask if you have a special request!
