2-WEEK BOARD & TRAIN ECOLLAR PROGRAM
Tools/Supplies/Cleaning fees: $200 **tax included
Total Investment: $2200
**Please note: this program requires hard work and permanent changes in how you lead and interact with your dog. Please research my social media pages prior to committing!
This program is for dogs who are 6+ months old and crate trained.
We use low-level Ecollar and prong collar pressures to communicate clearly with each dog. The Ecollar allows us to communicate offleash once the dog has a solid understanding of the pressure and commands! Once the dog understands, we then use the Ecollar to hold them accountable every time we give a command.
This program introduces your dog to a permission-based lifestyle. This means WE humans begin to make all decisions for the dog, and they learn to look to us for guidance in everything they do. This taps into their natural pack mentality, and every dog thrives on leadership! It’s what they crave! When your dog understands that YOUR guidance and permission is MORE relevant than any distractions you encounter, this opens up a world of freedom and fun for you as a team! You can literally take them anywhere and enjoy calm, obedient behavior!
Rewards, affection, praise, positive markers and treats are use to reinforce what we want. Discipline, punishment, structure and boundaries communicate clearly what we DON'T want. Very black and white! This creates a calm demeanor because the dog is no longer confused or guessing what we want from them!
Your dog will stay with me in my home for 2 weeks and be completely immersed in a structured, permission-based lifestyle. They will be treated like our family dog while here, and you will receive daily updates and videos!
They will learn 5 basic commands:
Not only will they learn these commands, they will learn how to be CALM and RESPECTFUL while in these commands.
We focus HEAVILY on state of mind training, which will slow anxiety, calm fears and create a relaxed, happy dog!
This program also addresses:
Stops unwanted behaviors such as jumping and barking
**I am NOT currently accepting any dogs with a human BITE history or aggression, due to children living in my home. I can refer you to some highly credible trainers in Ohio and Maryland for these types of cases.**

The pick-up date is a 2+ hour session where we discuss and PRACTICE everything YOU will need to maintain at home! We can also go on a field trip and/or a together to transfer the leadership role over to you.

Private lessons can be booked as singles or in a 4-lesson package. ALL private lessons require the use of a prong collar and 6-foot leash. Long leash, Slip lead, Ecollar, place cot and group class pass are optional.
The first lesson introduces the training collars to you and your dog in the form of “pressure and release”, which teaches your dog to yield to leash pressure and FOLLOW the human at the other end! We also begin a basic “stay command” with a release word. We will also address jumping, excessive barking and overall focus!
After the first lesson, owners may join group class or book more lessons if they desire to continue with more training. We will work on Place command, crate manners, recall and Heel, as well as discuss the importance of structure and mindset.
All private lessons include an info packet and workbook!
