American K9 Academy
(SPRING AND SUMMER TRAINING SPECIALS)
Basic Obedience on Leash
Sit, Sit Stay
Down, Down Stay
Walk on Loose Leash
Includes one private lesson
During your dog’s 2-week stay at our facility, we will teach him or her obedience, good behavior, and basic social skills. We will keep your dog for 2 weeks and train him or her voice and hand commands. This is a better option for dogs who do not have behavior problems or for owners who don’t want to spend 4 weeks away from their dog. There will be a little more work on your end with the 2-week program because your dog won’t have as much intense training, but he or she will certainly learn the basics.
4 Week Board/Train
Includes 2 Week Basic Obedience Package with greater precision and reliability.
Start of Basic Obedience off Leash
Includes 3 Private Lessons
With this package, your dog will get 4 weeks full of obedience training, with repetition and exercises from professional trainers. Your dog will learn voice and hand commands including come, sit, down, stay, heel, and others. If we do not think your dog understands these commands after the 4 weeks, we will keep him or her, at no extra charge, until he or she has mastered all these skills. We suggest the 4-week program for most dogs, specifically those with behavioral problems. This way we can spend more time with your dog and work these issues out.
Just as with the 2-week program, we will schedule a one-hour appointment with you after your dog’s stay. We will teach you everything your dog has learned and how to work with your dog.
Includes 6 Week Training Package with greater precision and reliability.
Start of Basic Obedience off Leash

This program comes with 20 ft long line, training collar and six foot leash
This is the most thorough and complete program that we offer. With this package, your dog will receive at leastÂ 6 weeks full of intense obedience training, with repetition and exercises from professional trainers. Your dog will learn voice and hand commands including come, sit, down, stay, heel, and others. The goal of this program is off leash control. If we do not think your dog understands these commands after the 6 weeks, we will keep him or her, at no extra charge, until he or she has mastered all these skills.

This program has been designed for dogs that need basic obedience on leash without the issues of behavior modification. Dogs learn the basic walking properly on a leash without pulling, barking, lunging, sniffing or reacting to dogs or distractions. We work on sit/stay, down/stay, Place command and recall training with and without distractions. Your dog also will be doing multiple times a day dog/dog socialization to work on proper social, play and greeting skills of other dogs. We focus on very important leadership skills with your dog so your dog understands proper pack order with humans. We are also one of the few trainers in the area who work on Calm on Command training which includes duration work and having your dog be calm in all situations and your dog does not have to be tired in order to do this. We work on eliminating bad behaviors such as jumping up on people and counter tops. This is also a great tune up for dogs that have gone through training with other training programs and bring your dog up to the level we expect a leashed trained dog should be at.
This program is not designed to eliminate dogs with anxiety/fear/aggression though we work on that from day one your dog is dropped off, those issues need time. This is also not a program designed to eliminate aggression with dogs or humans but we do lay the foundation work for it from day one and work on those issues from day one. Usually it takes a dog at least one week to fully understand the leash work we are doing, most dogs have been patterned for the behaviors that we are working on and eliminating. This is not an off leash training program but helps lay the foundation for future off leash work.
