We offer the Level’s Training Method that will allow for rapid success for the owner/parent and the pup to move up relatively quickly in all levels…ideally, in approximately 3-4 sessions while making the For Paws Canine Obedience Training experience fun and interesting.
“LEVEL’s Training Method”
WHAT IS IT?
Our Levels Method is different from other training classes. If you have attended any other training programs in the past you know that it typically consists of a certain number of weeks, one class per week, on a certain day and time, and works on a specific skill. This is fine if your schedule permits a specific day each week and more importantly your dog “learns” the skills in one week. But what happens if you miss a week or your dog doesn’t master the behavior in one week? You may become frustrated and a “dog school dropout”.
In Levels Training we make it easier for dog owners and pets to attend classes and be successful. Our goal is rapid success for the owner/parent and the pup to move up relatively quickly in all levels; ideally in approximately 3-4 sessions; while making the For Paws Canine Obedience Training experience fun and interesting.
There are many advantages to our method of training. We offer 2, 4, and 6 month Group Training packages. We offer different days and times for the various Levels. You can attend as many classes a week at your level that you would like. Additionally, you can jump back into other levels if you feel you need to catch up or need a refresher for certain commands and exercises. Each level has a specific set of skills we practice during each class. We continually review skills, in order to reinforce the behaviors we want to see. As pets and owners demonstrate mastery they move up to the next Level. Since there is no specific starting date for classes you can begin right away. This also means that there will be dogs with a variety of experience, which allows pet owners to learn from each other as well as the trainer. There is no set number of weeks or classes. This design allows flexibility for your schedule and a pace suited for you and your pet.
Everyone attends orientation. This is the first class for all levels of training. We become familiar with you, your goals and your dog. We will discuss history of your pup and specific concerns you may have. We talk about other family members and pets you may have in the household. Also, we talk in more detail about the “Level’s Training Method”, the benefits of our flexible schedules so that you’re not obligated to attend class only on specific days and times.
You can learn more about our program by reading the different descriptions for each Level. Please contact us if you have questions or would like to meet with us about your pet.
