Household Obedience

Let us be part of your dog’s team.

Dogs are individuals. They have likes and dislikes, and they exhibit what behaviorists call response classes (i.e. groups of typical behaviors the dog is likely to perform when interacted with or given a command). In order to achieve success with all these different personalities, a training program must be flexible and adjustable to each individual. In addition, since you and your dog work as a team (with you being the team leader, of course!) the training program must also fit in with your needs, schedule, and ability to handle your dog.

With this foundation in mind, we’ve been very successful with our obedience and manners training programs—we tailor the dog’s handling style and training to what you have planned for your dog, whether it’s being a couch potato or becoming a canine athlete. In addition to teaching your dog to be a good pet, we address behavioral issues like aggression, anxiety, housesoiling, and a host of other issues. Bad behavior rarely arises overnight, but at Geronimo Kennels, as part of your dog’s team, we can work with you to modify your pet’s behavior.

We offer two levels of household training:

  1. Basic obedience is required for all new clients, regardless of training level or previous experience.  If you request electronic collar training, the basic obedience course is required.  We take puppies into the basic course as young as 10 weeks old.  There is no age limit, but the health of the older dog is considered upon entry.   This course lasts at least two weeks, not usually more than 4 weeks.
  2. Advanced/Electronic Collar/Monthly Maintenance Training is offered to clients whose dogs have undergone basic training but would like advanced, specialized or ongoing training with us.    We charge this by the month although your dog may be done sooner.   This is a great choice for long term boarding,  if you desire your dog worked with daily in the off season, or if you want the off lead control of your dog available through electronic collar training.
