Doggy Day School

day trainingDo you have a dog who needs a little “extra” training?
Maybe your puppy has you overwhelmed?

Then FLEX’s Doggy Day School might be a great choice for you & your dog! We offer Day School options for Puppies, Adult Dogs, and Polite Leash Manners Programs.

At FLEX Dog Training we understand that not everyone has time, the expertise or the patience  to train their own dog. Sometimes certain dogs or just even certain skills just need that special touch of an experienced, expert trainer. With our day training we train your dog during the day while you can be off doing other things or even at work! Then we have lessons together either weekly or bi-weekly to go over the skills that your dog has been taught during their training sessions.

Many clients prefer Day School to sending their dog away to Board and Train or Doggy Boot Camp for their four legged family members. With our Day School you will have a better understanding of how your dog is being handled and trained. Plus, your dog is learning in their own environment, where you will need your dog to listen. That is why we developed our Doggy Day School!

We offer a variety of FLEXible Day School options.

Reactive Dog Leash Walks
Do you have a dog who is reactive on leash? You know how hard it can be to walk them and the only way the reactivity will get more manageable is with lots and lots of walks being under threshold (or non-reactive). Also, you know that not just anyone can successfully walk your reactive dog. That is where Reactive Dog Leash Walks comes in! This program can only be used in conjunction with, or as follow-up training to our RAD program.
