Basic Obedience

Before making a purchase, please complete the Regular Training Form

We are available 7 days a week to plan dog training sessions around your busy schedules. This course also includes the American Kennel Club (AKC) Canine Good Citizen test and Certification upon request for a small fee.

For Basic Obedience the price per session is $100 plus tax for a private one on one with a trainer at our facility. It’s and a $25-$40 travel fee depending on where you reside in relation to us or where we are meeting for training.

The average per program is 6-8 sessions. The sessions are about an hour long but be prepared for us to go over because we want to be thorough. These classes are very hands on training sessions and we take you through our own Master Handler’s Course. We will work on and go over Obedience, Socialization, Relationship Development, Impulse Control, Implementing Social Boundaries, Canine Enrichment and Fulfillment, Nutrition, Socialization and Exercise.


You book us as you want. There is no amount of sessions we require. Payment is required at the end of every session. We take all forms of payment. Cancelations are $40 if the session is missed, however if you give us 48 hours heads up the fee is waived. 


The old adage “You can’t teach and old dog new tricks” simply does not apply here for Basic Obedience- which is primarily focused on in-home training before moving onto Advanced Obedience where we work through commands in different environments.

We encourage video recording all of our sessions (we have tripods at the facility) this way you can keep these videos as a reference for the future and to help practice with your dog what we go over in between our sessions. Please as much as possible keep your dog hungry and food motivated…this helps so much. If your dog isn’t consistently taking food or treats by hand or playing with toys and engaging with people (outside not just inside) this can be challenging for us to teach them new skills.

Some dogs prefer toys or affection over food and that’s okay too, however, using food is typically the way for faster results. We book about a week in advance for sessions and are open 7 days a week with flexible scheduling times available.

The main importance is teaching you how to best communicate with your dog and to educate everyone. This is our most popular dog training service and for your convenience sessions can be in the comfort of your home or at our training facility in Fort Lauderdale. We work one-on-one with each one of our clients and their dogs to implement the following commands and goals:
