Phone Consultations – A very convenient, economically priced option for folks who just need a little steering in the right direction.
In-Home Puppy Lessons – This lesson is offered in your home. In my opinion, many of these types of lessons are necessary because the dog is lacking in obedience training. Most of these dogs need to be taught impulse control. Once this is done, weird quirks will fade and problems will stop. However, once in a while I meet that dog that needs help in one specific area or an owner that needs to be coached how to handle certain situations. If this is you, this is the choice for you. This is a very thorough in home lesson that will solve your problems and get you started in the right direction. A follow up phone consultation is included with every lesson. Also, if I can’t make a difference in your situation, you don’t have to pay me.
Obedience – 8 Lessons – This is a very thorough leash and collar obedience course that focuses on creating the 4 essential parts of every dog-owner relationship; Attention, Respect, Trust, Friendship. This is a personal session package that will teach Sit, Down, Stay, Come, Place, and Heel and rid your life of all behavior problems. These lessons are great because the owner gets to learn how to train the dog as the dog learns. The skills that are learned during these lessons can be used on every dog owned for the rest of your life! Lessons are held at the Hillcrest Kennels facility in Belleville, Il.
Off Leash Obedience – 10 Lessons – This is a fully trained dog off leash course. This package is very similar to the previous package, we just take the dog a little bit further to an off-leash level of obedience. After completing this course, you will be able to get sit-stays from 50 feet away and be able to call your dog away from a heavily trafficked road!
Board and Train – The board and train program is an excellent choice if you are worried that you will not have the time to train the dog yourself, but you still need a well behaved dog. The dog will stay at the Hillcrest Kennels facility and be trained by Bo Harrison and his staff. During your Pets stay, he/she will have 3 training sessions per day, get walked once a day, and have socialization lessons with other dogs. Needless to say, the dogs are always worn out and ready for bed by the end of the day. We keep them very busy. The board and train programs are designed to fix problems behaviors, teach social skills, and create a well balanced canine. By the time your pup comes home, they will be very well trained and willing to listen, however, every client should understand that there is still much work to be done after the initial board and train process is completed. The owners will have to follow through and continue the training so that it sticks and becomes part of the normal daily routine with your dog. The owner is expected to attend personal sessions until the client and trainer are satisfied with the relationship. All of the Board and train options come with the proper equipment to be able to continue the dogs training, one in-home lesson, unlimited personal sessions, and a Kranky K9 guarantee to continue fixing problems for the life of the dog. All of this is offered to ensure the owners success. Board and train is a mandatory option for most extreme behavior cases. There are some dogs that cannot be fixed in the presence of the owner. Very similar to abnormal human behavior, they may need to stay in a facility that can monitor their every move and make sure that every activity is performed exactly as it should be for optimal rehabilitation.
The Basics – 2 Week Board and Train – This is a leash and collar course. During your dogs 2 week stay we’ll cover all the basic commands. Sit, Come, Down, Stay, Heel, and Place
Off Leash – 3 Week Board and Train – All of the obedience commands including: Sit, Come, Down, Stay, Heel, and Place. Along with manners and taught to an off leash level of obedience.
Aggression Rehabilitation – 5 Week Board and Train – Damaged dogs take longer and training them comes with inherent risks. You really can’t put a time limit on these types of cases. It is very hard to quote how many weeks a puppy mill dog or an abuse case will take to rehabilitate. It’s up to the dog and you can’t rush them. (Additional Weeks for extreme cases)
