Basic Obedience

Our Pawzitive pup Luna graduated her Basic Obedience Course with flying colors

Before making a purchase, please Complete a Training Application so we can learn more about your expectations to better prepare for your training session. 

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 the time limit, because we want to be thorough. These basic obedience 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 72 hours heads up the fee is waived. 


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

The most crucial aspects are educating everyone and showing you the optimal ways to interact with your dog. This is our most popular dog training service, and for your convenience, lessons can be held at our Fort Lauderdale training facility or in the convenience of your own home. 

Even though some dogs prefer to receive toys or human attention over food, using food is typically the most effective strategy for getting quick results. 

We encourage you to videotape every one of our sessions (the facility has tripods for this purpose), so you can use them as a resource in the future and help your dog practice the exercises we cover in between sessions. Keep your dog as hungry and food-motivated as you can; it will assist a lot. It may be difficult for us to teach your dog new skills if they aren’t regularly eating food or treats from your hand, playing with toys, or interacting with people (both inside and outside).
