ENROLLMENT IN OUR PACK LEADERSHIP TRAINING SCHOOL (2 days per week Daycare combined with training for younger pups and their owners): You train your own dog with PLF guiding you both along the way. Geared for young dogs under the age of 1. We will be doing Behavioral Assessments for enrollment again beginning Aug 2017-Apr 201
When customers complete this program, they are dog handlers and NOT just dog lovers! PLF wants you to know how to get the best out of not just your dog, but every dog. A handler doesn't just teach a dog how to sit, but sees the world thru it's dog's eyes so it knows how to combat behaviors.
New for 2017: Training packets with be required for purchase the day of enrollment to include all the training gear needed for the 12 week School or the 2 week Boot Camp. Cost: $59.99 Includes: book, clicker, 2 forms of training gear. This will be collected the first day. This equipment is what we will teach you to use for the first 1-2 years of the dog's lifetime, so an investment well spent.
ABOUT OUR BOOT CAMP TRAINING: 3 different trainers are used to help with the dog's understanding of performing, anywhere/anytime you ask. PLF is the ultimate "pressure cooker" for the dog's brain to be overstimulated with: wildlife, vermin, all kinds of humans, all kinds and sizes of dog, etc. We socialize the dog in the pack, fix typical dog problems (biting to hard with play, low self esteem or confidence, anxiety, fear, etc)--things you say are a "breed" problem are typically just "dog" problems, we train the dog's brain to not respond to every thought that comes into its head, manage it's energy so you can then see what "calm submissive" looks like per Cesar Milan definition, we start at 6a-6p with shaping the dog in the human home--giving them proper manners, greeting a guest calmly, and more. Call us with what you need managed in your dog. MANNERS MATTER!!! If we can't help, we will refer you to a trainer that will! Guarantee: a more complete train than anyone else in E. TN for all pet and dog behaviors. When customers complete this program, they are dog handlers and NOT just dog lovers!
Now having trained over 1800 dogs and counting, we are certain one of our programs will fit your dog.It is an investment of a lifetime in your best friend! All forms of payment are accepted except check and American Express. Payments are accepted in advance of enrollment. Payment due in full at pick up for Boot Camp. No exception.
Please Note: Don't fall into the "Have my dog trained while I am on vacation" trap! We find owners won't do the required reading/homework in preparation to have their dog returned home to them. Remember: this is your dog, and what you put into it on it's return home, is what you will get out. Schedule your dog's training when you know you will be able to do your part.
The Behavioral Assessment will not only determine which of the 2 above are needed, but also the amount of work and staff that will be needed to be involved in the training. We will give you a written estimate at pick up. Cost for the BA: $18. No "aggressive" behavior is allowed. Call the Farm and we will come to you to evaluate aggressive behavior (this includes toward humans or other dogs.)
