Our Dog Obedience Training Classes

Dog Obedience Training

Dogs during Dog Obedience Training in Cleveland

Dog Obedience Training in Cleveland

All dog obedience training classes begin with an evaluation session. A trainer will meet with you and your dog to discuss your goals and any concerns. Your dog will be evaluated and a training program will be recommended to meet your needs. The estimated cost of the entire program will be discussed at this time.

Our obedience training programs are progressive in nature. Commands will be introduced and practiced during each training session, first with the dog and trainer and then with the dog and owner. The owner will be given specific items to work on with their dog prior to the next session. During subsequent sessions prior commands will be reviewed and polished and new commands will be introduced. This process will be repeated until all desired obedience training is covered. Any specific behavior problems will be addressed in a similar fashion each week throughout the course.

Training Packages

The Basics Program

  • 3 private lessons

The Basics Program is designed to teach your dog the essential commands of walking on a loose leash (heel), sit and come. We will also address the common behavior issues of jumping on people and play biting. You will have the foundation to be a leader for your dog so he or she knows what is expected of them. When the program is completed you will have the tools you need to continue on your own to reinforce the commands with everyday distractions.

Obedient Dog Program

  • 6 private classes
  • 2 group classes
  • 2 free follow up lessons for any commands covered
  • Slip lead with back up strap
  • 5 foot leash

Upon completion of the Obedient Dog Program your dog will be a graduate of the Columbia Dog Training Basic Obedience Course. We will cover everything including walking calmly at your side while on walks, coming when called, waiting in their "place" until your guests come in and get settled and so much more. Your dog will know what is expected with each command and these commands will have been reinforced with everyday distractions. Throughout the program we will address any specific behavior issues that are a problem and give you the knowledge and tools to correct them. You will be a more confident leader in a way that will benefit you and your dog. You will have a calmer and more obedient companion which will improve your relationship and make him/her a more enjoyable member of your family.

Amazing Dog Program

  • 9 private classes
  • 3 group classes
  • 3 free follow up lessons for any commands covered
  • Slip lead with back up strap
  • 5 foot leash
  • Dog cot for place command

The Amazing Dog Program is designed for the owner that wishes to take their dog beyond basic obedience. In the first 6 private lessons you and your dog will learn everything covered in the Obedient Dog Program. In the final 3 private lessons you determine what you would like to learn. You may elect to have your dog e-collar trained so he/she is free to run off leash but will still be under your control for their safety. Or you may want your dog trained on a treadmill so he/she can get their exercise even on the worst days for weather. We can also teach you how to use games like tug or food games to practice commands in a way that's fun for you and your dog. In the final portion of this program you determine what will benefit you and your dog the most.

Basic Dog Obedience Group Class

Group classes are an option for dogs that need obedience training but are not highly distracted or reactive to people or other dogs.  This is a 6 week course that will meet the same day and time each week.  The course is progressive so new commands will be introduced each week.  Therefore the owners' schedule must allow them to be available each week throughout the course.  No refunds will be given for missed classes.  Class size is limited so you will still receive personal attention.  Only one dog per handler is permitted.
