MN Dog Training

Dog Training Overview

All dogs are trained on Ecollars while they are here. These are fantastic tools that allow us to communicate safely from a distance with our dogs. Ecollars are a great tool for building confidence in our nervous or aggressive dogs. They also help create a safe off leash recall in high distraction areas. There is nothing better than to be able to give our dogs the freedom of off leash with being able to do it safely. The cost of training includes the Ecollar that your dog will be trained on and go home with!

During your dogs training stay you will be updated with pictures and videos of their progress. The program comes with a private lesson for the whole family when you pick them up, as well as a free follow up session within 30 days of your dog returning home!

Private Lessons
  • Private lessons are done here in our facility for $150 for the hour. Lessons may be done in your home depending on the circumstance. A mileage fee will apply for in home lessons.
Day Training $250
  • Day training is where you drop your dog off for the day during the week as you would for daycare. You will have talked to a trainer ahead of time or at the time of drop off to go over concerns and what you would like the trainer to work on with your dog. They will spend the day with the trainer doing multiple training sessions working on what you asked for. This may include learning new commands, correcting naughty behaviors, working around distractions in the facility or out and about on field trips, etc! The day is completely catered to your liking! Your dog will also enjoy playtime in daycare, whether that be with other dogs or a staff member depending on their social level! Then you will set up a 30 min go home lesson at pick up to go over their day, what they learned, and their progress! Training tools may be used during their day training but the price of day training does not include training tools to go home with them. So your trainer may suggest purchasing something that will help you and your dog succeed together in the world of training! This is also a fantastic service so a trainer can simply evaluate your dog in many different circumstances and environments to see what the next step in training, socializing, and confidence building should be!
