Price: $2,500 total

Is there a wait list? Please ask about our availability. There may be a wait list anywhere from 2-6 months. You may also request to be put on our cancellation list; If there is a no-show or a client asks to change their start date to a later date, you will be contacted if you are on the list by priority.

Length of Program? This program is approximately 3 Weeks but can vary anywhere from 3-5 Weeks as every dog is different and learns at a different pace. If the trainer decides the dog needs more time to master the cue's taught, the trainer will need to keep the dog at no additional cost to the owner for however many extra days the trainer recommends.  

Our motto is. "Train now, play later."
