The day has arrived and Sit Up N Listen picks-up your family pet. For 2-weeks your dog will enjoy the luxury of living and training with Mona in her beautiful home and training area on three acres in Blairsville, GA.
When ready, your dog will venture out to a variety of locations to progress their learning. Towns such as Blue Ridge, Blairsville, Hiawassee, Murphy, Hayesville, McCaysville, Copper Hill and surrounding areas in North Georgia, North Carolina and East Tennessee are visited for training. New environments challenge your puppy or dog's learning experience helping them reach their fullest potential.
Whether leash walking or off-leash freedom, I'm vested in helping families reach their goals.
This is an all inclusive 2-Week Board and Train program similar to vacationing at a resort and includes:
Evaluation and plan
Pick-up and delivery
14-days of training and boarding at trainer's home
Daily video on Sit Up N Listen YouTube channel
Sportdog 825X 1-collar, 1-remote, 1-charger
Dog cot (great to lounge on and "place")
2-coaching session at end of program at your home
All of the family expectations discussed during the initial evaluation evolve over the 2-week period. Each evening you will receive an email with a link to the daily video. In the video on YouTube, you'll be able to see your dog training.
As a professional, by taking the hard part of dog training out of your hands, unwanted behaviors can be quickly corrected. A structured training curriculum promotes a confident and happy dog in even the most distracted places.
Home manners are number one with most families. These is where our dogs spend most of their time. The home is also where the dog's lifestyle and the people lifestyle collide. Chewing up furniture, counter-surfing, and running out the front door are a few of the problems address in our program.
In addition, your dog will train on and off leash in rural and urban environments that challenge them while learning the following:
come (recall) *Off Leash Recall is the #1 Command that Dog Owners Request
place (boundary training)
wait / stay
heel (formal leash walking)
follow (informal leash walking)
As well as performing all of these commands on and off leash the 3 D's of dog training are progressed daily: Distance, Duration, and Distractions.
And, most importantly, your pet is receiving socialization encounters that helps them move comfortable through life.
At the end of the board and train program I will deliver your well mannered dog to your home. At this time, the first family lesson is given on "how to maintain training." I offer as many lessons as needed but 99% of families are satisfied with just one lesson.
It is important that your puppy be at least 6-months-old before being enrolled. Minimum Requirements:
No human or dog aggression
No extreme separation anxiety
Free of injuries and illnesses
Neutered or Spayed
