WHY TRAIN YOUR DOG?



Training your dog will make him or her an enjoyable member of the family and a better neighbor. Training strengthens the bond between the owner and his or her dog. It builds mutual respect, understanding, and communication and subtly demonstrates to your dog that you are the leader of the pack. Dogs are pack animals and need to know where they stand in the pack order to be secure. If you are not in charge, they will try to take charge because someone has to be in charge in their mind. Life is so much easier and safer for them when you are the one in charge.



An untrained dog is likely to misbehave and make life miserable for everyone. There are about four million dogs entering animal shelters a year and about two million of them die because they were not adopted. An untrained dog is more likely to be surrendered and less likely to be adopted than a trained dog.


                        We are offering our Obedience classes in levels so your dog can move at its own pace. 


What is Levels Training?

Liberty Hill Pet Resort will be offering the most flexible group training classes available known as "Levels Training" starting January 7th,  2017.  Levels obedience training is a group program offering unlimited training session during the period you are enrolled.  The beauty of this program is that you can move the program at your own speed.  If the concepts in Level 1 are easy for your dog, you may only spend a couple of weeks in this level before moving on to Level 2.  On the other hand, if your dog is having trouble with some of the concepts, you can stay in Level 1 until your dog is ready to move on.  With a levels membership, you can come to our drop-in classes as often as you like for as long as you'd like. Get as much or as little training as you want or need based on your own expectations for your dog.  You can also go to classes under the level you are currently in.  Some students might come as often as three times a week!  Move through all four levels or choose to stay at a lower level. The choice is yours!


We will be offering all the levels on Saturdays and then each level will be offered once in the evening during the week.  

 

LEVEL 1: STARTING OUT. Level 1 will introduce the basic commands sit, down, stationary attention, and the name game. We'll also work on problem behaviors such as jumping, play-biting and house training. All dogs (even those with prior training) start in level 1. 

Requirements to move to Level 2: Dog can sit and down on command.  Lures and hand signals are allowed. Dog will respond readily to his name with mild distractions.

 

LEVEL 2: MANNERS TRAINING. We'll work on walking politely on a loose leash without pulling, paying attention to the owner while walking and ignoring other dogs. We'll also begin working on come and stay. Level 2 includes problem-solving information for behaviors such as barking, digging, chewing, etc.  

Requirements to move to Level 3: Dog can walk nicely around the training area with attention on owner (and no pulling) with other dogs 4-5 feet away. Dog will come when called on leash with mild distractions.  Dog will sit and down with just a verbal command.

 

LEVEL 3: ADDING DISTRACTIONS. We'll work on a long-distance come command, stay with distractions, loose-leash walking past

distractions, and distance commands.

Requirements to move to Level 4: Dog will stay for 30 seconds with mild distractions and owner standing on the leash. Dog will heel past other dogs with leash over owner's shoulder. Dog will come from 20 feet away with moderate distractions.                                                       

 

LEVEL 4: ADVANCED TRAINING. We'll work on polishing the come command and teaching an emergency come, strengthen the stay command by teaching the dog to stay for longer periods of time at a greater distance from the owner, work on turns and automatic sit in heeling.

Level 4 goals: Dog can heel off-leash past other dogs and distractions. Dog will stay 10 feet away from owner for 3 minutes with distractions. Dog will come off leash past distractions from 30 feet away.  Dog is able to pass the Canine Good Citizen test.

If you do not able to come to classes, we have several other options available for you.  We are offering Private Training, Day Training and Board and Train.


Private Training involves us working one-on-one with you and your dog.  We will come to your house or you can come here.  There is a milage fee when we come to you.  This is a good option when you have specific problems you would like to work on.


Day Training involves the dog coming to see us twice a week for a month.  You pay for a month at a time and can sign up for as many times as you need.  We can work with Obedience, Aggression, Socialization, Agility, etc.  You will have homework to work on when the dog is not with us.  At the present time we are doing the Day Training on Tuesdays and Thursday.  We work with them between the hours of 8 am to 5 pm but you may drop off as early as 7 am and pickup as late as 7 pm.


Board and Train involves the dog staying with us for several weeks while we train it.  You need to give us an hour or so when you pick up so we can go over what and how the dog has learned so you can keep up the behaviors that we have taught it.  Again, we will work with Obedience, Aggression, Socialization, Agility, etc.


Check out the Canine Good Citizen, Agility, Barn Hunt, Nose Fun, Clicker Trick and Rally pages - interactive sports between the dog and its owner, fun for all!!

They will need the following vaccinations: Rabies, DHLPP, Bordetella (within 6 months) and Canine Influenza.  They also need to be on a flea and tick preventative.  If we find fleas on your pet, we will treat them at your expense.  A fecal is also required.  If the dog is on heartworm preventative, then a negative fecal within a year is accepted.  If the dog is not on heartworm preventative, then we require a negative fecal within 6 months.




Please call 540-439-PAWS (7297) or go to Forms page to get a registration form for your dog.  Mail the form with a check for the level you would like and a copy of your dog’s vaccination record.
