Training: Ivanhoe Country Kennels Canine Academy

Association of Pet Dog Trainers    Canine Good Citizen

Owner Bill Cosgrove trains a resident.At Ivanhoe Country Kennels Canine Academy we always treat your pet as though they have been trained. By sticking to a list of prescribed handling techniques many untrained dogs will begin to understand and after training may obtain the AKC Canine Good Citizen award.

Training Options
For our patrons who wish to enroll their pets into a formal training program, we offer three options. All three apply the principles of the American Kennel Clubs Canine Good Citizenship Program.

  1. Private Training Program: In this program your pet is with us for four weeks and goes home on weekends. Visits during the week also can be arranged. Maximum results are achieved with this program. We will focus on basic training, responsiveness and reliability to commands, long down/stays, long recalls, and socialization. We'll also address negative behaviors and assist and coach the owner to transfer the training when your pet graduates.
  2. Doggy Day Care with Training: Your pet is scheduled for eight visits in a four-week period. The commands and techniques are explained to the owner so that they can conduct interim training at home. This program involves a partnership between our trainer and you, and final results are a joint effort. Your pet will also participate in Doggie DayCare. 

Call for Pricing and availability.
