Puppy Class - $90 for 1 private orientation lesson. After the orientation you are welcome to drop in to our group classes on Thursdays 4:00-5:00 in Goleta. Drop in rates are $45-$25 per hour depending on the number of dogs that day. This is an ongoing class for puppies 9 weeks-6 months. People will be learning to teach their puppies basic obedience behaviors such as sit, down, stand, come, stay, walking on a loose leash and leave it. Puppies will have a chance to play and socialize off leash during the class. In order to transition new people into the class, I provide a one hour orientation lesson at your home before you begin group classes with your puppy. All puppies need to have started their vaccinations. Call Andrea at 805-708-1418 to schedule an orientation.
Tricks Class - $200 for 4 one hour classes Did you ever want to teach your dog to fetch a beer or ride a skateboard? How about walk backwards or maybe just a simple rollover? A tricks class might be fun for your and your dog. Teaching a dog to do tricks is a fun activity that engages your dog's brain and body in a positive way. It is a great way to build a healthy bond with your dog and engage their innate problem solving abilities. Old dogs, puppies, shy dogs and rowdy dogs can all learn new tricks. From your dog's perspective, all behaviors (even come and sit) are tricks. In this 4 week class we will be using positive training methods and a reward marker to teach your dog some tricks. We will be learning some tricks together as a class and you will be able to choose some tricks to teach your dog. We will present different training methods for building fluent behaviors and learn how to keep those behaviors reliable. We will show you how to write a training plan and follow it to your training goal.
Therapy Dog Training Class - $250 for 6 one hour classes In this class we will be learning reward based training methods to teach dogs behaviors that will help them to pass a therapy dog evaluation. We will be training skills from the Canine Good Citizen Test (CGC), The Therapy Dogs International Test (TDI), the Love on a Leash Test (LOAL) and the Therapy Dogs of Santa Barbara evaluation.
For people with busy schedules or dogs who need individual attention.
Private Training $100 per hour or $450 for 5 hours of training. I offer private training at your home or another location that you choose. Private training is a good option for people with busy schedules, for dogs who are fearful or reactive to other dogs and people or dogs that aren't yet able to handle the distractions of a group training class. Some behavior problems occur mainly in the home and it makes sense to train your dog when and where the problems occur. I can work with you to create a custom training plan that meets your specific goals. To schedule private training, contact Andrea at 805-708-1418 or email@example.com
Day Training This is a good option for people with busy schedules that might not always have the time or patience to train their dog. I can come by your house and train your dog for you, or if you prefer, I can pick up your dog for an outing to train and socialize. We can work together to create a training plan that will achieve your specific goals. I can video tape your dog's training sessions for you to review. I will provide transfer sessions with you and your dog so that you will be able to continue practicing the behaviors your dog has learned.
Plan 1) package of 5 one hour visits $400 Plan 2) package of 10 one hour visits $750 Plan 3) package of 5 two hour outings $700
