Group Classes

Do you want to be able to spend time with your dog learning how to teach them how to be the best pet for you? Our group classes at Global K9 Protection Services are a great way to achieve that.

Our group classes are 6 consecutive weeks that meet for an hour each week. We keep classes small to maximize all dogs learning potential. This also allows for some socialization as well as distractions throughout the class. We offer group classes for all levels such as Puppy Kindergarten, Basic Obedience, Intermediate, and Advanced. Read more about each class to see which one fits your dogs level the best.

Puppy Obedience ($110)

By getting started with training right away, the dog years that follow puppyhood become ones to enjoy. This class is 4 weeks long and focuses on socialization- not just with other dogs and people, but with textiles and noises, distractions and quiet. So many other trainers work so that dog and owner are in a confined area or only surrounded and working within a certain space. In our almost 20 years of training, we know that a puppy as young as 12 weeks old are similar to kindergartners- like sponges! The more we give them and expect- the more they can do- its the delivery, consistency and confidence in which we do this that is important- so we teach you how to ensure your puppy and future dog is never afraid of thunder or walking on slippery floors, or men in hats to name a few. We also complete house breaking and conditioning of feeding and vet visits and get working on simple manners, such as nipping, jumping, digging, chewing, etc. Also the foundation to some obedience commands sit, down, place, come, and focus to name a few. Once you see how easy it will be to have your dog want to follow your lead, its easy to teach commands, obedience, tricks and begin the relationship you’ve always wanted with your pooch!

Puppies must be 8 – 16 weeks and have all immunizations possible.

Beginner Obedience ($190)

This class is 6 weeks long, one-hour each week and will teach manners such as no jumping, barking, digging, chewing, nipping. We will cover on leash obedience to include the following commands: sit, down, come, place, heel, focus, walking loosely on a leash, waiting at doorways and sidewalks, and any customized training requests.   (Necessary training equipment will need to be purchased separately)

Intermediate Obedience ($190)

In our Intermediate Obedience class, we take your dogs training to the next level with a multitude of distractions and proofing all the behaviors they learned in basic obedience. We teach them to respond to hand signals and minimize the communication we use verbally or through a leash. We also add it sit and down in motion as well as sit and down on recall. This class is designed to prepare your dog for off leash training so we also focus on distance and duration.

Advanced Obedience ($190 Plus Training Equipment)

You and your dog are ready to enjoy life without a leash. This is one of our favorite classes as you learn to be able to control your dog in a variety of environments, distractions, and get to enjoy going places with your dog. Simultaneously your dog will enjoy having much more freedom and learn to obey instantaneously all while off leash.

Private Lessons

We know your life is busy, so we’re happy to offer both private and semi-private lessons, as well as offer them here at our facility or in your home.

In-Home Lessons

We know people are extremely busy and want to maximize their time available, and sometimes making the time to travel to lessons is just not feasible. We will come to your home! One on one lessons, customized to you and your dog’s needs to rectify any poor behaviors (chewing on furniture, peeing in the house, attacking windows when people walk by, rummaging through the trash can, etc) and learning new obedience commands (loose leash walking, sit, down, place, heel, waiting at doorway and sidewalks, stay, come, etc).

This is optimal for individuals who have a busy lifestyle and really want and need help with their dog’s behaviors to enhance the relationship they have together and so you get the most out of the time you have set aside for training your dog.

If you have a neighbor, friend, or relative who has a dog with similar issues and would like to train together… we offer our SEMI -PRIVATE LESSONS at your home to lessen the cost to you both families and to be able to work on socialization also! (Of course, we can always bring one of our proven, safe dogs to help with social boundaries and skills.)

$90 per PRIVATE LESSON or SEMI-PRIVATE LESSON for $65 per client (plus mileage if over a 20 min drive)

At Our Facility

Here at our farm we have the opportunity to work with you and your dog to master a wide range of settings, phobias, social introductions, etc. It also has a LOT of space (23 acres) to practice many different scenarios. It is the ideal place to expose your dog to whatever obedience obstacles you may want your pooch to learn, overcome and accomplish. We encourage you to come visit at any time for a full tour of our facilities and get a sense for who we are, what we do and how we can help you, your family and your fur-baby.

We have many family members, neighbors or best friends that travel together and would love to have their dogs be able to play together as well. Or, better yet, be able to listen and obey simple instructions when at each others houses, yards, parks, hotel rooms, etc. We are happy to combine training with dogs of similar learning abilities and if you don’t have a buddy but we do- we may even be able to hook up your pooch with his or her new bestie and do some SEMI-PRIVATE LESSONS which lessen the cost to both parties! PAWSOME!

If you’d like us to train your dog in Personal Protection, the course will take longer and there will be an additional charge based on which protection skills you are interested in- we can discuss this on an individual basis.
