South Paws Dog Resort offers several training options for dogs and their owners. We teach classes and private lessons from Puppy Essentials all the way to Fundamentals of Competition where you and your dog get ready to compete at the top levels of obedience, rally, and agility. Additionally, we offer training options where we do the training for you! We have a 15 and a 30 day board and train plan where your dog stays with us. What really makes South Paws different is our experience with training. Lynn is the only trainer in the area to hold the prestigious CPTD-KA certification and is a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers (APDT). Lynn has been successfully training and competing with multiple breeds of dogs in the AKC sports of obedience, rally, agility, tracking, herding, dock diving, and barn hunt for over 25 years. And not only can Lynn work with dogs, she can effectively communicate with their owners. Lynn taught high school for 18 years and knows how to teach people too because, let's face it, that's a huge factor in working with dogs. The dogs and their owners are a team. If only one half of the team understands something, that's a problem.
South Paws Dog Resort has successfully been training dogs since we opened in 2012 with over 75 completing our very effective in-kennel program. We offer a board and train service where your dog stays with us and we train him/her for you! The training can be customized to your needs or you can choose our general plan--whatever you want. We offer a 15 day ($800) and a 30 day ($1500 with a lifetime guarantee) option. Aggressive dog cases are evaluated individually and begin at $3000. Our typical training package includes sit, down, stay, come, loose leash walking, wait, off, and a go to your spot command. Off leash control work is available but only with our 30 day program. Other options are crate/potty training; load in the car; socialization with people, dogs, and/or cats; etc. While with us, your dog will stay in our comfortable, climate controlled facility, participate in small playgroup activities to insure plenty of physical and mental stimulation, get a complimentary bath/nails prior to pickup, and have a one hour session with you to transfer the training. Prepayment is required as well as providing your dog's food. Service dog training is available by private treaty. Feel free to contact us if you'd like more information about turning your dog into a well-behaved canine citizen!
