New Puppy Consultation - $25 

Our one-hour puppy consultation is designed to help puppy owners get personal coaching, including a full set of handouts, on raising their puppy.  These personalized, in-depth consultations can cover all the puppy raising challenges such as:


  • Housetraining, crate training, mouthing/chewing.
  • Hygiene, handling/restraint, feeding, socialization.
  • Overall reinforcement, behavior management and modification (stopping "stealing", jumping, etc.).
  • Beginning puppy obedience.

 

Private Obedience Sessions - $30/hour 
 
Private obedience sessions are often more workable solutions for a family who:


  • May not be able to come to the group classes due to scheduling,
  • Has a dog who is too “reactive” to other dogs or may be a bit too shy to join a group class,
  • Has a few specific obedience issues they’d like to train,
  • Just brought home a new puppy or dog and want immediate help getting settled in (house & crate training, mouthing & chewing issues, etc.),
  • Or prefer to have a little more one-on-one attention.


Private sessions are held here at Honey Creek. The sessions themselves, and the number of sessions, can be tailored to your needs.

3-day package Tuesday-Thursday

$150 per week

Tired of getting pulled down the street?  Is your back sore from cleaning up puppy messes?  Are your friends not visiting because your dog is jumping all over them?  Our family dog obedience classes are geared toward helping you teach your dog good social manners.  We like to think of our training as “real-life” training where we teach practical exercises that you will need and use every day.  The success of training is dependent on a benevolent leadership relationship between your and your dog, and we’ll show you positive, fun and motivating ways to work with your dog.

Private Sessions

Overnight-Board & Train

Board & Train

Board & Train packages allow us to do some of the work for you!  For current students, we can polish up some of the commands, help get past some stumbling blocks, proof commands and introduce new commands.  For new students, we can help introduce new commands and work out any kinks with commands you've been working on yourself.


Since each pet and family is different, we'll consult together to come up with the best overall package and training plan that will help you reach your dog training goals and fit into your budget as well.


Each package includes:

  • Consultations to be sure we are all on the same page for what we will working on, goals and homework for the family. 
  • Either day or overnight boarding (bedding, bowls, food & treats included)
  • Follow-up help between or after training time.


Here are some of the common commands/behaviors we can help you with:

Jump Start Puppy Class 

We’ll help get your relationship with your new puppy off to a great start with this "Puppergarten" class!  Dogs have only one true socialization period and when they are in this puppy stage it is very important to promote safe, varying and positive experiences for them.  Not all puppy classes are created equal - ours covers all of the necessary puppy areas during this socialization time.  Designed for puppies under 5 months of age at the start of class (some older, smaller breeds may be OK), our puppy class will include some of the following:


  •  Puppy Raising (housetraining, crate training, mouthing, etc.)
  •  Beginning basic obedience
  •  Sit, down, come, stay, watch, leash walking, etc.
  •  Socialization to strangers
  •  Confidence building
  •  Puppy tunnels, small obstacles, “vet” exam
  •  Puppy group playtime



Our puppy class is scheduled as open enrollment (you may join and start at any time).  The $75 fee will allow you and your puppy to attend up to 5 of the classes/sessions.  Classes are held each Saturday at 12:30pm and you may attend the Saturdays that fit best with your schedule.  Registration is still required and orientation materials will be given to you at that time.  **Classes may be held outdoors weather permitting if we do not have an indoor space available**  Class Registration and Info forms


Beginning Basic Family Obedience

Our basic manners class is a great way to continue the work you and your puppy started in Puppy Class, and is a super beginning class for a newly adopted adult dog.  Dogs attending should be at least 7 months of age at the start of class. There are no pre-requisites for this class.  We’ll cover such things as: 


  • Leadership & Deference exercises (getting your dog to look to you for cues on how to behave)
  • Sit, down, stand positions

  • Recall (come) with finish
  • Sit for greeting
  • Loose leash walking with automatic sit
