Naked Dog Training Programs
Which program is right for you and your dog?
Our three Naked Obedience programs are designed to get your dog to the same place: impeccable manners, complete off-leash control and resolve any behavioral issues. The first question is how fast do you want your dog to get there. The second question is how much do you want to play a part in your dog's newly learned skills becoming not only habit but second nature.
Naked Obedience Fundamentals $1,995
Our Naked Obedience Fundamentals is made up of 10 days of training at our training center and one 2 hour class of handling instruction.
The curriculum can be Naked Obedience, manners, addressing behavioral issues or service dog training. If additional training is needed it can be done as ProCare (think day care with performance training) or through attending training classes with your dog.
If additional training is needed it can be done at the Day School rate of $125 a day, ProCare (day care with performance training) at a rate of $50 a day or through attending additional training classes with your dog ($100 a class at the training center/ $150 an hour at your home)
Naked Obedience Extended $3,500
Unlike Naked Obedience Fundamentals where you’re paying for 10 days of training, with Naked Obedience Extended you are paying for a specific curriculum. While our target is completion in 3 weeks there is no set time. You are paying for functional results. These functional results are results with you handling in your everyday life.
The curriculum includes:
“Easy” (walk on a slack leash)
“With me” (relaxed heel)
Nay (no or stop)
Wait (remain behind natural boundary such as a threshold to a doorway, sidewalk, etc)
Only jump up (on people) on command
Only jump up (on furniture) in command (unless you want to allow your dog to regularly be up on furniture)
“Hupp” (a command directing your dog that it’s okay to jump up on you or furniture)
“Off” (a command directing your dog to get off of person or furniture after having been instructed to jump up)
Etiquette around people (no inappropriate sniffing, etc)
Etiquette around other dogs
Home Etiquette (remain calm and well-behaved without needing a command to do so)
We will also address any behavioral issues you may be having with your dog.
Naked Obedience Complete $6,500
This is the Naked Obedience program which has developed our international clientele. The longer we train your dog once he or she has already learned our Naked Obedience Extended program (the time most dogs go home), the more trainers who handle your dog and the more places in public your dog visits the more solidified the performance (obedience, manners and change in behaviors).
It’s the very same with people. Let’s say a coach were hired to teach an athlete a specific skill which took 3 weeks. Presumably, the athlete would be able to start using these skills functionally the very next week. If instead the coach continued to teach the same material for another 3 weeks using repetition but also integrating the new skills while using established skills and creating confusion and asking for the skills in the midst of it. In all likelihood by the end of 6 weeks these skills learned 6 weeks ago would now be not only habit but second nature. Just replace the coach with our trainers, and the athlete with your dog and that’s our Naked Obedience Complete program.
We can also add additional commands to your dog’s performance including a formal heel, finish, a command to remain within a 12 to 15 ft radius and just about anything else you may want your dog to learn.
Naked Solutions $100.00/ class ($150/hr in-home)
The single thing which motivates us the most is changing the lives of dogs and their owners. It’s a real privilege to come into someone’s life and have that effect. No where is it more noticeable than when addressing behavioral problems. That is what Naked Solutions is all about.
If an owner is not interested in their dog having impeccable manners right now, or achieving complete off-leash control (Naked Obedience), we are happy to address just behavioral problems.
If your dog is pulling, jumping, chewing or needs housebreaking, it may be an easy fix. If that is all you’re interested in you may be able to schedule just one or two in-home visits. What we love to see are the “really bad boys and girls”. The dogs that every trainer, veterinarian and behaviorist has given up on. That’s where we can literally change someone’s world, and in some cases even save a life. So, go ahead, challenge us!
