Masters Of Dog Training: Our "One-on-One" Dog Training Program":

private lessons-dog-training--marin-county

You pay for the results, not the number of lessons. Our one-on-one lessons are designed to teach YOU how to train your dog.

This program is customized to meet your individual dog's needs. In addition, all dogs will be taught the following behaviors:

  1. Walk on a loose leash: By the end of your first lesson, you'll be able to slip your pinky finger through the end of the leash and your dog will be able to walk past other dogs, food and tennis balls-- without pulling.
  2. Stay on your "place": When the in-laws visit, you'll be able to just throw a beach towel or a pillow on the floor, tell your dog "Place!" and he'll stay there until you tell him to get up.
  3. Sit until dog is told to get up. Your dog will sit and stay while you're out for a walk and encounter a neighbor. You'll be able to stop and chat without your dog being a nuisance.
  4. Lie down (stay) until told to get up. Now you'll be able to take your dog with you to Starbucks and know that he'll lie down and stay nicely while you get up for a refill.
  5. Wait at the door: Never worry about your dog wandering off if the kids happen to leave the door open.
  6. Exercise finished command: A clear and easy way for your dog to understand when he can go play or relax.
  7. House training (when necessary): You will learn how to teach your dog to be safe and reliable (potty outside). Let's face it: Life with dogs is easy when they know when and where to relieve themselves.
  8. Boundary & Perimeter training (don't run in the street) You'll be able to play fetch with your dog and not worry if the ball rolls into the street. Also-- want to keep your companion out of the guest room? Then this technique will make your life much, much better.
  9. Come on command: Take your dog out for a hike and know that he'll come back the first time you call.
  10. Heel: Enjoy walks with your dog because she'll be striding alongside you nice in position.
  11. Distraction proofing and problem solving: Barking, biting, nipping chewing, jumping and more! There's virtually no behavior problem that can't be either eliminated or made better.

Doggie Rock Star : Our Boarding School - Board & Train Program:

Busy with work? Frequent traveler? Going on vacation? Enroll your dog in our Boarding School/Board & Train program and come home to a brand new dog!

Dogs learn in three phases: The teaching phase, the reinforcement phase and the proofing phase. Our board and train programs take your dog through all three phases and then when you return we teach you "how to drive the car" -- so to speak.

Includes all of the behaviors taught in our One-on-One Dog Training program (above) as well as two follow up lessons to make sure you understand how to get your dog to work for you. Then you'll also get one year's access to our "distraction proof" group classes that meet once a week.

Please call us for a free consultation, evaluation and temperament test. Prices are based on results and quoted from: Your dog's temperament, breed, current behavior problems and also your current handling ability and how comfortable you are with your dog.

Group Classes:

group-class-dog-training-marinOur "Distraction Proof" Group classes are exclusively offered to graduates of both our "One on One Dog Training programs" and our "Boarding School" graduates.

You'll practice the techniques and behaviors that your dog already knows-- but around fun distractions including:

  • Other dogs
  • Cats (Our house cats, Felix and Gumbo)
  • Food
  • Tennis balls
  • Much more

We also play fun dog training games that serve to stimulate your dog's mind and test your dog training skills. It's the ultimate in learning and having fun at the same time!

"Well Worth The Money..."

"Best thing we ever did for our dog! We went through two other training programs before this. She listened great in the house, but her nose would take over outside. She would not listen to any commands and had no recall. It is an investment, but well worth the money! We now get compliments all the time about how good our dog is!" 
- Mark Conroy & "Tango" from Sausalito, California
