Trouwe Hond K-9


All breeds, ages & dispositions ALWAYS welcome!


     These training packages consist of focus based training methods and are designed to cover a wide range of obedience skills from house manners, behavioral problems and issues, to advanced off leash training and control.   These In kennel board and training packages are great for all dogs weather they have had prior training or not. My goal is to ensure that your dog gains an understanding and consistency of commands through proper training and communication.   I also specialize in dogs that require attention in certain areas in behavior such as nipping, biting, aggression, fear, dominance, submissiveness, jumping, begging for food, and/or poor leash manners.    We can work on solving or redirecting some of these problem behaviors.   Your dog will gain overall house manners and become a civilized member of your family's pack structure.   My In kennel training is a well proven great tool for helping your pet to become the companion you always wanted in your dog.   Sessions could involve working your dog at other realistic high level distraction areas, such as parks, malls, a vet's office, or pet shops with the owner's permission.     I limit the number of dogs I take in for training so your canine companion gets the best possible attention producing the best results.  All Dogs are trained personally by Dave.  These programs are customized to meet the needs of each client.  These dog training packages include a detailed information packet, and private lessons.   These programs have proven themselves to be very successful in the past and produce excellent results.    Together we can discuss and tailor a program that will best meets your needs, requirements, and achieve your goals.  See what other clients are saying  click here

Evaluation / Consultation -  Prior to entering training programs all dogs and humans first must be evaluated.  The evaluation process is about 1 hour.  Dogs will be genetically evaluated for temperament, nerve steadiness, reaction, sound, balance, and relationship to owner.  Any specific obedience or behavioral issues, concerns, and goals will be reviewed and discussed.  We will make up a working set of notes.  At that time I will make recommendations as to how we can best attain your goals and which program may be best for you and your dog.    The evaluation fee is typically 90.00 depending on how long we spend together.   The evaluation fee will be credited back to you with any in kennel training package.
