Participants meet with their trainer at our Garden City Park location once a week for 4 weeks, followed by one lesson with your trainer at your home. Lessons are tailored to meet the dog's individual needs and the owners expectations.

Training lessons are tailored to meet the dog's needs and the owner’s expectations and may be held at home, at the park, or any number of locations to facilitate a well rounded training program. The program typically takes about 4-6 weeks to complete. Daily practice by the owner is necessary for effective learning as well as follow up maintenance to ensure good results in the future. The in home training package includes all equipment, private lessons, and a lifetime of follow-up through group classes where available. This program is recommended for dogs four months and older

SUPERPAWS TRAINING CAMP

This is a Board and Train program. Your dog comes to live with one of our trainers for about two weeks. Not only do we train your dog at our place but your dog will accompany a trainer to work and be trained anywhere our trainers happen to stop. We feel training in as many places as possible greatly improves the over all result and gives dog owners the confidence to take their dogs ANYWHERE. This program is recommended for dogs four months and older.

In both the SUPERPAWS PRIVATE LESSONS, IN THE HOME and TRAINING CAMP programs your dog will learn the following on and off the leash:

  • Come when called on and off leash around distractions.
  • Heel or walk next to you on and off leash stops pulling or wandering away.
  • SuperPaws SIT this means sit until you are told to do something else or released
  • PLACE on an object until told to do something else or released
  • OFF stops jumping on furniture and guests
  • LEAVE IT Stops chewing, excessive licking and begging
  • DOWN lay down until told to do something else or released

SPECIALITY PROGRAMS

HOUSEBREAKING / POTTY TRAINING

This program will give a good start to housebreaking your dog. We will personalize this program to your needs including your schedule, and potty method of choice: Outside, Wee wee pads, Litter, or a combination of methods. Housebreaking programs take place in your home or at sleep away camp, depending on your needs.

SUPERPAWS TRAINING CAMP WITH HOUSEBREAKING

This combines both the SuperPaws training camp and housebreaking programs. This program is VERY labor intensive. The usual time frame is 6-8 weeks for both programs.

PROFESSIONAL PUPPY RAISING PROGRAM

This is a super intense, soup to nuts all inclusive puppy program. The puppy enters this program around the age of eight weeks and lives with a trainer until he or she is approximately four and a half to five months old. The puppy raising program includes advanced, off leash obedience, socialization, traditional veterinary care (i.e. vaccinations, de-worming etc.) and housebreaking as well as lifetime follow up. This program is suitable for a household wanting to buy or adopt a young dog, but who lack the time necessary to get that dog over the first few difficult months. This program can be tailored for either household pet puppies or for working dog puppies depending on the dog owners needs.
