Since training is a journey and not a destination, once your dog has completed the Socialization 101 program you are qualified for our CEU Program.  With the CEU Program the trainer will come to your house once a week to work with your dog and keep those newly learned skills sharp.  CEU Program is $300 for 4 weeks.

Why Socialization 101?

Living with an anxious or scared dog can be hard.  Whether they are barking at your guests, exploding when other dogs get to close, or hiding behind you when things get to be too much.  Living with an anxious dog is as hard for you as it is for them.

The solution for anxious and scared dogs is usually socialization.  A lot of socialization.  Controlled socialization.  Going to new places, meeting new people, and being around new dogs.  But exposure to new people, places and things is not enough.  Your dog has to enjoy the interactions. He has to learn he is safe and he has to learn that good things can happen in these situations. The one thing they need - socialization - is sometimes the one thing you avoid because you are afraid of another 'incident'.

That is where we come in. We will start the socialization process for you.  We will use walks and field trips to start desensitizing and counterconditioning your dog to his emotional triggers. As we get to know your dog, we will be able to give you detailed suggestions for your own socialization outings.
