Basic Obedience 

Our primary training objective is to teach you and your furry friend “Basic Obedience,” but we do realize there can be other obedience topics that every individual may wish to resolve. Therefore, we have designed certain outlines to help every dog owner achieve their goals at their own pace and at an optimal price. Our training packages focus on Three Major Categories of training. 

These categories include Owner’s Role, On-Lead Training and Off-Lead Training. Each Category will provide the owner a solid foundation to continue many obedience topics own their own or professionally.

Should more than two Intermediate topics be necessary, the Four Week Board & Train may be implemented to insure proper time.

Even if your pet had training prior to arrival at ERK, our trainers will need to continue to build off of the previous foundation, insure the foundation reaches acceptable standards and then proceed to implement Intermediate or Advanced Topics. Items including (**) will require a course which will encompass Off-Lead control.

All Advanced obedience topics listed in "Training Overview" may require In-Home Private Lessons in order to recreate the bad habits that need to be corrected. In-Home Private Lesson prices are $100/Session. Advanced Topics listed above include a (#) which represent an average amount of sessions required to adequately teach the topic to you and your pet.
