Loki doing protection work
We raise a lot of sport, personal protection, and working dogs. We have a complete system of teaching young puppies to have a great foundation, lots of confidence and will want to offer us behaviors instead of us barking orders at them. We use their meals at this time to start imprinting the basic and advanced positions and add some tricks in there too. We like to start at twelve weeks old, as close to that age the better. This two-week board and train will start your pup off in the lead and your friends and family will envy the focus and attention you and your dog will have, it's great bonding. Two follow-up sessions are included in the price, $800. The bond and engagement you and your dog will have from this type of training will have everyone envious of your relationship. This foundation training is how teams are made.
In our Basic Obedience package, we start at the foundation and build a strong understanding of what's to come as they mature. We start with teaching them marker training and teach leash manners, on leash recall, sit, down, sit/stay, down/stay and come when called. Each week we will focus on teaching new behaviors and we give you homework to work on each day after the course. It's a great way to bond with your dog and very rewarding to both of you. Most dogs are finished in four weeks which during this time they board at our facility and work with many trainers. The price of our basic obedience is $800. Half is due when dropped off and remaining when picked up.
In our Advanced Training package, we start to proof your dog's behavior and start adding in distractions. These training sessions will be done out in a real-world setting, such as a pet store, home improvement store, or a store that is dog friendly. During this time we tighten up on all of our basic obedience and add in the off-leash heeling and recall. We believe strongly in allowing our dogs to be off-leash when appropriate and we want to help you get there. This training takes approximately 6 weeks where they will stay with us for our board and train program. The price of Advanced training is $950. Half is due when dropped off and the remaining is due when picked up.
We offer protection dog training for the best-suited dogs. We require them to be clear-headed, upmost confident, physically fit, and strong drives. This training can be tailored to personal protection or sport. Call or email to set up an evaluation, we can do private lessons or your dog can be trained here by our talented staff and then you are passed the leash to a well-trained protection dog (most popular option). Cost is $1500 contact us for more information. We have helpers and decoys that have worked with IPO (Schutzhund), police dogs, and PSA bite sports dogs.
Our scent detection program starts your dog out by imprinting them on whatever odor you choose. The most popular choices are Narcotics or Explosives but the odor does not matter (you choose the odor). Your dog will be able to properly use its nose while hunting for an odor that "gets him paid" (his reward). He will be taught to alert on the odor in a way that is undeniably recognized. The price of scent detection training is $1500. Call us for more info on this specialty training.
Solid obedience and control are paramount when working with the police K9 to increase effectiveness and reduce liability for the K9 team and agency. Therefore, all of the police patrol dogs trained in our program are trained on-leash and off-leash obedience for complete control. Patrol dogs are trained to sit, down, stay, come, heel, and to respond to hand signals given by the handler at a distance. This control allows for ease of use when deploying the police patrol dog in field operations and demanding tactical field environments. patrol dogs are fully trained in criminal apprehension and handler protection. Our dogs are not sporting dogs that are solely focused on equipment and routines, they are man-oriented, not equipment oriented, and are prepared to readily apprehend criminal suspects when required. Police patrol dogs are also trained to be proficient in conducting tactical building searches, area, and wooded searches, evidence/article recovery as well as scent discrimination, and variable surface trailing. We utilize and promote scenario based Police K9 training for all dog teams to ensure that they are prepared to tackle the extreme challenges that are faced by today’s law enforcement and military dog teams. Dual-purpose police patrol dogs are trained to the same high standards as our single purpose explosives and narcotics detection dogs. Dual-purpose drug detection dogs can be trained with a passive or aggressive alert, depending on the needs of the department. Our dual-purpose explosives detection dogs are trained with only a passive indication. Our detection dogs are trained in and prepared for a variety of environments including warehouses, residences, schools, etc. They are proficient in searching for all types of vehicles, including passenger cars, commercial vehicles, buses, etc. This training is for departments that already have a dog they are wanting to be trained, not for the purchase of one of our already trained police K9's. If your department has a dog and you are wanting it trained, it will need to be evaluated before training starts. Contact us if you are looking for a fully trained police dog for your department.
