Private Lessons

Obedience at Maximum K9

Private lessons are a great way to work towards specific goals on a schedule that works for you; they are fully customizable to suit your needs and are designed to help you teach and communicate with your dog in the most effective manner. Private lessons are appropriate for dogs of any age, breed, and temperament with any level of foundational training: from those that need the most basic obedience training to the most seasoned sport and working dogs and everything in between. 

Our basic curriculum includes the following:

  • Balanced training techniques
  • Marker word training (“yes”, “no”)
  • Heel 
  • Sit/stay
  • Down/stay
  • Intro to place
  • Polite greetings (no jumping)
  • Recall (come when called)

Our lessons are tailored to your specific needs so be sure to discuss your goals with your trainer!

Off-leash/E-collar training at Maximum K9

The e-collar is a beneficial tool used for precise, consistent communication with your dog. It uses electro-stimulation, similar to what a chiropractor or physical therapist might use, it is NOT A SHOCK. Our training uses the lowest level of stimulation that the dog feels to motivate the dog towards wanted behaviors. The e-collar can be used to move your dog off-leash by acting as an “invisible leash” that lets you control your dog from a distance, providing a safety net to help prevent them from running into traffic and approaching strangers or strange dogs, who may not be friendly.

The e-collar must be introduced as part of a balanced training method, and should not be introduced without the proper supervision of a trainer. We begin training the e-collar by pairing it with commands that the dog already understands, then combine it with a leash correction that the dog is familiar with. When used properly, the e-collar training can reduce conflict and anxiety by preventing negative association. The e-collar is a tool to be used such as a leash or collar to help the dog master the training and fine-tune communication between you and your dog.

For the ultimate off-leash communication, we recommend continuing training beyond just a single package; it is important to note that just like any other training method, e-collar training should not be rushed. It must be slowly and correctly integrated for maximum benefit.
