Our Training Division is designed to treat each dog as an individual. Do you know your dogs individual cognitive skill set? The universal belief is that dogs learn through association. The kicker is this- What dogs associate is often different from what we think they associate with. This is the number one reason most "training methods" don't work.

When looking at the behavior and training of canines, there's breeding, DNA, individual personality, natural temperament, energy level, history, environment, previous training methods used and so much more that play into each and every scenario. There is no "one" method that works on every dog simply because there are no two canines that are the same. More than anything, we want you and your dog to work as a team. You may be the leader of the team, but you still need to love, respect and trust one another. We are all about finding out what's driving their behavior and building a good line of communication and mutual respect between you and your dog. We want your dog to look up at you and listen because of the relationship you have built and the respect you have given. Working together, it's a beautiful thing.

Whatever your challenge, whatever your question, whatever training methods you've already tried... we've got your back. Been kicked out of other classes? Tried multiple trainers without success? Wondering "why" your dog is doing what they are doing? If you are feeling frustrated or have tried multiple methods without success, you are in the right place. From beginner to advanced. From small questions to big challenges. We don't care about breed, age, size, condition or any label that has been placed upon any dog. They are individuals and we are passionate about helping them overcome! We care deeply about you and your dog. Give us a call or send us an e-mail today to set up a no pressure appointment. We keep it positive and insightful! From training and behavior help to rehoming, we have a variety of programs and services that can offer the support you need.

One Hour Training/Behavior Consultation: $65

Use this hour however you wish. Tell us your challenges, experiences, goals. Ask your questions. Or, talk to us about a specific behavior that you'd like us to help you address. You choose. You will walk away with insight as to what's driving the behavior, how to adjust your habits at home so you are speaking your dogs language, how to become in better alignment with what motivates your dog and lastly, a plan on how we can help at CRCS through ongoing training. Ideally, we mix and match our different services to fit your time and budget. It's your hour. We are here to help with whatever you need.

Intensive Training / Day Camp: $75

Drop your dog off at CRCS for an afternoon of fun and positive, intense training! This program is meant to identify and/or target a specific behavior and really dive into what's behind it all. In order to help our canine companions overcome a specific area of challenge, we need to find out what the root cause is. It's one thing to treat the symptom by teaching them obedience training or by using some type of equipment (like a special collar or leash or spray). It is something entirely different to address the root cause of the issue. Once the root cause is identified, we've got our plan on how to overcome from there. Please note: One visit is not a "Fix It" button. We humans don't conquer our fears, calm our anxieties or become great at any one thing by trying it once. Our canine companions are no different. During various stages of ongoing intensive training, you'll have the ability to watch, learn and observe while our team works with your dog. This is a great service to use in conjunction with group classes, one on one training or while you do your part at home. You'll be shocked at the results. And your dog will too!
