Private One-on-One Dog Training SessionsPrivate sessions are intended for our experienced canine trainers to address your specific needs, goals and concerns. For example, during your first private dog training session, you get an hour to learn about the basic terms and lingo we use, as well as some quick and effective methods to show you what you should want and don’t want out of your dog. We also take the time to see what YOU want out of your dog and we'll leave you with exercises to reinforce those needs. Your next session might be something more specific. For example, you don’t want your dog to bark uncontrollably when someone rings the doorbell. We’ll take that need and set up a controlled environment where we can show your dog how to behave within those conditions; the training is even more effective if this “controlled environment” is the actual environment where the conditions take place. In this case, it's your home! Just like anything great, it takes daily practice, repetition, and consistency.
Semi-Private Training SessionsIn place of private training, semi-private sessions give you everything one-on-one sessions offer. In addition, you will be able to train during weekday evening and Saturday prime time hours, meet other Cali K9® clients and their dogs right away, safely socialize your dog in a small group setting (maximum 3 dogs), quickly prepare for group classes, and work directly with our head trainers.
Benefits of Group ClassesIt was once said: “give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day: teach a man how to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime.” Essentially, we are teaching you how to build the foundations of giving your dog structure, teaching your dog the basic commands, and engaging your dog in the midst of distractions for the rest of its life. To the untrained eye, a group dog training session may look nothing more than a guy rattling cans and bottles around dogs on platforms. It looks simple. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Be observant.
