Upon completion of basic obedience, we will present you with a certificate of completion through K9 Pinnacle. We will also administer the AKC Good Canine Citizen test as part of our program. Once passed and basic obedience is completed, your dog will be allowed to graduate into Advanced obedience if you desire to take your dog to newer heights. This program is designed for dogs 5 months and older.

Advanced Obedience:

Our advanced training is focused for those who desire to get the most out of their furry companions. This program is a continuation of basic obedience and will increase the distance and duration of commands off leash. These classes will allow for advanced individualized goals as well as competition obedience and hand signaling.

 

Aggression and Behavioral Class (ABC):

This class is designed for dogs to be rehabilitated that have human or dog aggression. This allows you and your dog to work around other dogs and humans in a safe, controlled environment. You and your dog will have the opportunity to work through their behavioral issues while learning basic obedience. Trainers will evaluate your dog to determine if they are a good candidate for this program. Private lesson(s) may be recommended before starting the class.

Board & Train (4 Week Program)

This Program addresses basic obedience, behavioral issues and teaching general manners. They will also receive socialization and training in the community around humans and dogs. They will learn to focus on you and not become overwhelmed by environmental stimuli. This program will include a final go home lesson with one of our trainers to ensure a smooth transition. It will also include 3 private lessons after the completion of the program to follow up on your dog’s training.

Service Dog Program

Full service dog program for legitimate medical needs. We train dogs to assist with mobility, Autism, Dysautonomia, PTSD, medical alert, psychiatric and more. Owners will be required to obtain their own dog. An evaluation and temperament test will be administered to determine if the owner’s current dog is adequate. If you are searching for a great service dog candidate, we can also assist you.  Minimum six month program that includes owner training and lifetime support of the dog.

Canine Good Citizen Test (CGC)

The Canine Good Citizen Test was designed by the American Kennel Club (AKC) to evaluate a dog’s behavior in our communities. When a dog passes this test, they have demonstrated some basic obedience and polite manners in society. This test is also a foundation in pursuing any higher obedience levels such as therapy work and several dog sports. We offer this test for any dog owner regardless if they have participated in one of our training programs or not. By appointment only.
