Obedience Training at RW Canine Retreat

From Basic to Advanced Training including Service Dogs

Our training kennel has been specializing in obedience for companion animals and the retriever for over 21 years. You may ask yourself, “Why does your dog need training?” In any relationship, communication is essential. Training offers more than the ability for your dog to do what you say, but most importantly; it establishes a bond between you and your dog. It also develops the respect and trust that any healthy relationship needs. And last but not least, it increases your dog’s confidence and understanding of what is expected of him.

We offer customized training programs depending on the needs of you and your dog. We will evaluate your dog’s nature to apply the appropriate training methods in order to achieve a high level of success. Our #1 priority is your canine and the relationship you build with him; it’s important to us.

What people are saying…

“We sent 2 very spoiled vizslas to Georgeanne and her team at RW training kennel for basic and advanced obedience. Our boys were rambunctious, disobedient and undisciplined. The boys we got back are so polite, well mannered and respectful … The kennel is meticulously maintained and I never once had to worry that our dogs were not getting love or attention… The very best part is the time she takes to ensure you are trained and confident to maintain the training when you get home. You really leave feeling like you have the tools to make this a permanent change. We had such a positive experience and are so happy that we invested in our dogs! ”

“My sweet fur boy, Fenway has changed for the better thanks to Georgeanne and her awesome staff! Words can not express how thankful I am for the training he received. The facility was immaculately clean and Georgeanne and staff welcomed my family in with open arms and loved our golden doodle as much or more as we did! Since training we have boarded Fen there, and again, I am so thankful to have a 5 star place to take my fur boy too! I would recommend the training and boarding to anyone!

PLAN A: Basic Obedience

AKC S.T.A.R. Program
$2,000 per 30-day in-kennel training program

Plan A is a 30-day in-kennel program geared around the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy® Program. Once your pup has completed this, he will not only be able to pass the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy® Program test but he will also understand the following commands on leash: SIT, COME, STAY, DOWN, BED, NO, HEELING and crate training, etc. If your dog is starting at the Basic Obedience Level they will learn all of the above commands on leash, which will enable them to smoothly transition to off-leash commands in Intermediate Obedience.

At completion of the 30-day Basic Obedience program, we will conduct a personal hands-on session with you and your puppy/dog to make sure you are comfortable with what the puppy/dog has learned.

Included:

Room & Board, daily exercise, and personal one-on-one training.

Required food, vaccinations, heartworm preventative & parasite control are at owner’s expense; any needed vet care is at owner’s expense including trip charge.
