Pork Chop’s Way offers a wide range of training programs conducive to your busy schedule and your dog’s needs.  All training programs involve the use of a clicker, a training tool used to associate and reward desired behaviors.
*Optional: All training programs can be customized to adhere to the standards of the American Kennel Club (AKC) Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Program, a two-part program designed to reward good behavior at home and in the community. Your dog will receive a certificate from the AKC upon completion of the 10-step CGC test.


Basic training: Includes five weekly, hour and a half private lessons to learn and master the basic behavioral commands (sit, stay, off, let’s go, come, and leave it), plus leash-walking.  Twenty minutes of exercise is included at the onset of every lesson.  This program offers the training essentials and does require consistent reinforcement at home of lessons learned. The total for the program is $475.

Training daycare: Includes five weekly, hour and a half private lessons to learn and master the basic behavioral commands (sit, stay, off, let’s go, come, and leave it), plus leash-walking.  Ample exercise consisting of three weekly hour and thirty minute, 2.5 mile group hikes is included.  As exercise combats excess energy (especially in puppies), this program creates the ideal mindset for training; it does require consistent reinforcement at home of lessons learned.
The total for the program is $1000.

Board n’ train: Includes two weeks of extensive training and boarding, followed by two weekly, hour and a half private lessons.  Daily exercise consisting of hour and thirty minute, 2.5 mile group hikes is included.  This program is designed for the busy owner who has limited time to reinforce training tactics at home—your dog returns fully trained! 
Daily group hikes are included during the two week boarding period; they can be added on for $25 per day during the following two week private lesson period.
The total for the program is $2,000.

We will provide ample treats and verbal praise for good behavior along with, back scratches and belly rubs (free of charge).
Going to doggie daycare, anywhere from once a week to 5 times a week, will benefit your furry friend’s’ physical and mental health, improve their social skills, all while having fun with their new daycare buddies. We also assist with maintaining house training and socializing puppies.
When we drop off your pet at the end of the day, he/she will be ready to relax with your family after a full, fun day at dog daycare. No more pent-up energy as you sit down to eat or read a book. No more waking you up in the middle of the night. You'll have a pooped pup that is happy to curl up with you. Sounds good, doesn't it?
