Basic Obedience Training Options

 

 

Von der haus Gill Kennel at times (depending on law enforcement schools schedules)  offers private training courses for non-law enforcement type dogs. This program is geared for the private owner who just wants good control of their companion, problem solving, behavior modification, or the person who wants to do more advanced obedience training or competition. We only work with working type dogs. (No small breeds, No Pitt Bulls, No Dobermans, No American Bulldogs, and No Rotts ) All dogs are subject to an evaluation (fee is $100.00) prior to any acceptance into our training program/s. No exceptions.

 

Programs:

 

Basic on Leash Training Program - This is an on leash program which teaches the dog/owner basic control.  This program teaches  your dog to heal on leash, to sit at your side, to down at your side, and to rest/stay in a down by your side for several minutes. It also teaches heeling with the automatic sit when the owner stops. A private lesson will be given when the dog is ready to go home.  This course normally takes 3-4 weeks (15- 20 working days working days) of training with the average dog.
