From Basic to Brilliant

Basic dog training

Does your happy-go-lucky dog need to learn “the basics?”

Do you want to see a change in your dog’s unruly behavior quickly? Let us show you how to communicate with your dog. This program will teach your dog the 5 skills our clients ask for the most: sit, down, come, loose leash walking, and stay.

At each appointment, your trainer will guide you through teaching your unruly dog basic manners. We’ll coach you to be consistent and look for ways to set your dog up for success. In just a few short weeks, you’ll enjoy your dog’s company so much more!

From Basic to Brilliant is appropriate for owners who are motivated to do the training themselves, which requires daily practice. If you are short on time, you may want to consider our Intensive Training Programs instead, where we do much of the training for you.

This program is just for dogs over 6 months old who are not exhibiting fear, aggression, or anxiety. If you have a puppy under 6 months old, check out our puppy training solutions!

Coaching topics include…

  • Jumping up on people & counters

  • Crate training, including vocalizing in the crate

  • Walking politely on leash without pulling

  • Sit, down, & stay

  • Coming when called

  • Training equipment & reference materials

What to expect

From Basic to Brilliant begins with a 90-minute initial consultation. In this appointment, one of our expert trainers will sit down with you and your family to discuss your dog. You’ll tell us your long-term goals as well as the current problems you’re experiencing. We’ll explain and demonstrate techniques to fix the problems you’re having and get you started with basic training exercises.

At the end of the initial consultation, you’ll schedule four 60-minute follow-up lessons with your trainer. These appointments are generally booked one or two weeks apart. In these appointments, your trainer will review your progress and answer any new questions you have about your homework. We’ll then show you new activities and training exercises to continue to grow your dog’s manners.

Alongside the private lessons, you’ll also attend Flex Classes with your dog to build their manners around distractions like people and other dogs. From Basic to Brilliant includes ten group training classes with a 2-month expiration date. We hold classes several days a week, giving you lots of opportunities to fit training in alongside your busy schedule.
