Dog & Puppy Training Frederick, Urbana and Clarksburg, MD

Dog training for a Sheltie

The biggest difference between our dog training programs is different levels of training goals and how much we do for you to save you time & effort.

The more time we spend with you and your dog, the more we can achieve and the more reliable your dog will be in more situations. You can choose the dog training program you want based on your preferences.

We recognize all dogs and owners are different, and we want to make sure you achieve your training goals. That’s why all of our dog training programs include support virtually or in person, so you never have to worry about getting stuck. Some of our programs even have Lifetime Support in case something ever comes up!

For private lessons, we serve areas within or near Frederick County, Maryland: Urbana, Frederick, Mount Airy, Damascus, Clarksburg, Adamstown, Buckeystown, etc.

Board and Train clients come to us from all over the mid-Atlantic region!

And yes, we do puppy training too!

Essential Manners – Lesson Program

In this program we’ll teach you exactly what you need to know for your dog to become well mannered and respectful in the house and around the neighborhood. No more jumping on guests or pounding on the windows to howl at the mailman. And your dog will finally learn to walk on a leash without yanking your arm out of its socket.

This program is typically completed in 4-5 private lessons and includes:

  • Immediate access to training resources so you get help ASAP.
  • 6-month virtual training support so you can always get questions answered in between lessons
  • Manners like waiting at the doors, not jumping on people, crate training and more
  • Commands like leave it, coming when called around the house, walking without pulling, and staying calm when asked.

All equipment included ($130 value)

Listen Everywhere – Board and Train program

Our “Listen Everywhere” program allows you to enjoy life with your dog because you have confidence they will listen…everywhere, not just in your house with a treat. We’ll show you how to get your dog to do what you want the first time you ask. No more “sit…Sit… SIT!!!”

This program begins with a private lesson so you can get immediate help with training issues. Then, we’ll schedule your dog for an immersive 2-week stay at the trainer’s home. Your dog will get plenty of 1-on-1 training practice so that when they come they are already on the right path…plus, daily structured socialization sessions so your dog can play and learn to interact safely and appropriately with other dogs. Rest assured we’ll send you videos throughout your dog’s stay so you can see how they’re doing.

Follow-up lessons will teach you how to get your dog to listen to you just as well as to the trainer and give you peace of mind that your goals will be reached.

You’ll also get invitations to group polishing classes to practice your dog’s new skills around other dogs and real-world distractions for a whole year. Before long, you’ll be able to bring your dog to public areas with ease because you have the control you need.

This program includes:

  • Immediate access to training resources so you get help ASAP.
  • 2-week stay for your dog at your trainer’s home
  • Daily dog socialization sessions during his stay with us
  • 3 private lessons: before, during and after the board-and-train so your dog listens to YOU as well as the trainer
  • Manners like waiting at doors, not jumping on people or stealing food off counters, crate training, staying calm when asked, and more… 
  • Commands like sit, down, come, place, leave it, and heel (walking at your side without pulling)
  • Invitation to join group polishing classes to practice around other dogs for 1 year
  • Lifetime subscription to online training support so you can always get questions answered
  • All training equipment included ($310 value)

Set for Life – Board and Train

This is our most elite dog training program and will give you control over your dog off leash, even around distractions! Which is awesome, because most family dogs spend 99% of their time off-leash at home. This program gives you the most freedom to enjoy your dog in any situation, knowing they’ll listen. This dog training program is also perfect if you’re feeling overwhelmed and you know you need a professional to help with obedience training and/or behavior modification. 

More time with your trainer means less work and effort for you, and your dog gets farther along faster – listening in all kinds of places and situations!

Your dog will come, sit, lay down, heel and stay – AND we’ll also teach your dog to go to a dog bed (“place”) and stay until told otherwise – awesome for dinner time or anytime you don’t want your dog under your feet.

We’ll even practice together out in public on field trip lessons so you know your dog will listen even around distractions.

Our Set For Life Program also comes with a LIFETIME SUPPORT guarantee so you never have to worry about your dog’s training slipping over time. You and your dog can always come to our group lessons, free of charge, whether you need help or you want to work toward a targeted goal like the AKC Canine Good Citizen test.

This program includes:
  • Immediate access to training resources so you get help ASAP.
  • 3-week stay for your dog in your trainer’s home, with video updates so you can see how they’re doing!
  • 4 private dog training lessons: so you’re learning how to improve your dog’s behavior before, during and after the board-and-train, plus an extra refresher lesson to be used anytime
  • Daily dog socialization sessions during their stay with us
  • Manners like waiting at doors, not jumping on people or stealing food off counters, crate training, staying calm when asked and more
  • Listening around the house AND in public off-leash, and around distractions
  • Commands like leave it, come when called, walking without pulling, sit-stay, down-stay, place (stay on their bed).
  • Lifetime Training Support: you’re invited to come to group polishing classes for the life of your dog!
  • All dog training equipment included ($310 value)
