-He’s a Good Dog, BUT…… Program
This extended 6-week Dog Training program is for dogs 18 months or older, with no aggressive behavioral issues toward humans or other animals. Dogs older than 12 months have had more time to practice unwanted behaviors such as anxiety, fear, and reactivity.
It is essential dogs with these behavioral issues are taken out of their home environment to reset their state of mind, lifestyle, and to begin the rehabilitation process.
These behaviors can be deeply embedded in dogs, which takes time to break through. Utilizing our “pressure on pressure off” methods, we guide your dog through our balanced training course to help create better habits and a healthy mindset.
The work does not stop with us, however. Long-term success comes from the clients’ continued effort in maintaining harmony once back home.
To help ensure long-term success we include; a private class at our facility at the four-week mark, a 2 to 4-hour return home session, AND a 1-hour private lesson to be used within 7 to 10 days after your pup’s return home. You will come to Columbia County for a special ‘real world’ training walk with us to check on you and your dog’s progress.

What could take you months, if not longer, we can obtain in just a few weeks.
Because we train every day. We have precise timing and the knowledge of when and how to troubleshoot difficult behaviors. Not all training works for the same dogs. During your dog’s stay, we get to really know what works for your dog. We use our extensive knowledge and experience in training a large range of temperaments and breeds to get the results you’re looking for.
Training your dog is our full-time job. There is never a day your dog doesn’t get trained several times a day. In addition to training obedience skills, we exercise your dog daily and work on enrichment such as Agility. Also, social dogs get free play time in between training sessions with matched playmates.
In our care, your dog gets trained by the best for the best results. This training is an investment in the life of your pet. Once completing the pr
