Training is a great way to bond with your dog as well as improving your relationship. Here at K9 Penn, we offer several different types of training ranging from basic obedience, agility, and even specialized training such as tracking and trailing to protection services.

Every dog is different, from their personalities to even the way they learn. Our trainers are here to adapt to you and your dogs needs and learning styles while making the experience fun. Each package is customized to you personally!

Basic Obedience – During this basic obedience package, your dog will learn skills such as proper leash walking, heeling, sit, down, stay, and beginning recalls. This package includes:

  • 4 x 1 hour private lessons in your home
  • 2 x 1 hour group socialization classes
  • Training collar

Advanced Obedience – After completing the basic obedience training, your dog will begin to use the skills taught in basic obedience but now off-leash such as walking in a heel, sit, stay, hold, and recall at varying distance. This package includes:

  • 4 x 1 hour private lessons in your home
  • 2 x 1 hour group socialization classes

Group Socialization – We know that just as dogs need manners, socialization is also a key component in training. During our group socialization classes, dogs are able to interact with each other in a safe controlled environment. This class demonstrates the skills taught in basic obedience while in a group setting.

Behavior Modification – This specialty training allows for you and a trainer one-on-one to correct problems that are not a usual obedience problem such as aggression, reactiveness to other dogs or people, and desensitizing dogs to stop barking excessively at a doorbell. Depending on the level of behavior modification will be dependent on the hourly rate.

Agility *coming soon*! – Agility is a great way to bond with your dog as well as challenge their minds with agility equipment ranging from jumps, poles and tires, weave poles, tunnels, teeter boards, A frames, and a dog walk. We are in the process of customizing packages for agility, stay tuned!

Service Dog Training –  Service dogs can range from a low spectrum to a high spectrum on assisting their human in need. We customize the a training plan and a quote to what task your dogs need to learn to better assist you. Tasks can range from retrieving a medication bottle, helping an owner up, all the way up to detecting early onset of epilepsy. A doctor’s recommendation letter will be required for all service dog training.
