CITIZEN CANINE

 
 

With over 25 years experience and thousands of dogs successfully trained, Citizen Canine’s main goal is for your dog to be able to listen to you in real everyday situations.  Knowing that you can depend on your dog’s behavior means you will be able to take your dog anywhere with confidence and reliability.


All training is one on one in your home and at a local park with the emphasis on training you and your dog.  Using praise, not food, as the only motivator, your dog responds to you, not to what treat you have for him.  Praise reinforces the bond between you and your dog.  Because of this, commands do not break down as time goes by.

PROGRAM   

All of our Programs are in-home or at a near by park sessions one a week for one hour, along with your commitment of two fifteen-minute sessions a day.  This combination will guarantee results. Our programs are for all breeds and ages as no dog is too young or too old to benefit from training.  We deal with all behavior problems including (but not limited to) aggression, shyness, separation fear, housebreaking, chewing, jumping, barking, and socialization.


BASIC    

This six week on-leash program teaches the following commands: sit, sit-stay, heel with an automatic sit, down, down-stay, come, wait, and “No.”

In addition to the above commands, this program addresses any and all behavior problems.


ADVANCED    

This four week program takes your dog off-leash for all commands.  Your dog will reliably be able to heel, sit, stay, down, and come, regardless of distractions the first time you tell them.

You will be able to take your dog with you wherever dogs are welcome.

 

PUPPY PROGRAM

Puppy programs start as early as 7 weeks and last 1 - 2 sessions.  The emphasis is to make sure your puppy starts out the right way, concentrating on early socialization, preventative work and  addressing all puppy problems.

LIFE MAINTENANCE PROGRAM

This is a group class that is offered once a month to all dogs who have completed the advanced programs.  This allows you and your dog to stay up on your skills.  It also gives your dog opportunities to work around big distractions as well as get an opportunity to socialize.  This program is included in your advanced training at no extra charge.
