  • WALKING and/or HEELING on a LEASH
    Your dog learns to walk with you on a leash without pulling, dragging, or crossing back and forth in front of or behind you. He will leisurely walk with you or heel closely at your side, whichever you prefer.
  • SIT and STAY
    Your dog will sit immediately with a gentle voice command and hand signal. He will stay in that position until you release him.
  • COME
    Your dog will come to you immediately from a minimum of 100 feet. He will learn not to become distracted and will automatically sit down at your feet and wait for you to release him.
  • DOWN and STAY
    Your dog will lie down and stay in that position for up to an hour or until you release him.
  • CONTROL CENTER
    A control center is a designated spot or place where you can send your dog when you need space. This spot is considered his special area in your home or yard where he can relax or play with toys just as long as he stays put. A control center might be in the family room, kitchen, bedroom, etc. and can be utilized when you have visitors or when chaotic situations arise where you need your pet out of the way. Dog beds are also good control centers because they are moveable, and your dog can be trained to go to there regardless of where you place it.
    It is an especially good idea to have a control center in your yard when you have outdoor activities and would like for your dog to be there, but not involved in the activity. Example: You are having playtime in the yard with children or a cookout with friends and you would prefer your dog remain on the back porch. A control center allows your pet to be part of the family event, but not interfering or annoying your company. When in his control center, your dog has freedom to stand, sit, lie down, play with his toys, or relax and sleep. This area can also be used by your dog when he chooses to have quiet time. A control center is a comfort zone for your pet as well.

Testimonials

  • “Thank you very, very much for training Sparkle for me. As you know, I would not have been able to keep her without the training because she is so energetic. She is still very active at home, but controllable and is a totally different dog when she knows she is working.
