Here at Colorado Canine Academy we strive to put together the best training options for dog owners.
We offer three different levels of training, Puppy, Obedience/Manner, and Behavior training. All of which are offered with their own levels and are customizable to your needs.
We also offer group classes if that is more to your interest. These address the basics of obedience, manners, and socialization.
Your trainer will work with you during your first training session to develop a training plan that is a custom fit to your needs and priorities.
Our lessons are 50-60 minutes and are held in your home and neighborhood to facilitate the best results for your dog.
Having a good foundation of training and socialization is the most important gift we can give to our young dogs. This early training creates a bond of trust between you and your puppy. Laying this foundation early on can prevent unwanted behavior and troubles in the future, and also will make future training much easier.
Our Obedience and Manner Training is taught using positive reinforcements and motivational tools, like praise, treats and toys to encourage your dog to learn proper behavior and manners. Teaching a dog what is expected of him/her is the bedrock of obedience and proper manners. Once your dog has this understanding he will follow your commands and respond to your cues with anticipation of pleasing you, the leader of the pack. (Ages 11 months on up.) (Behavioral issues, such as anxiety, fear, and aggression will be addressed in our Behavior Training Programs.)
Colorado Canine Academy takes behavioral problems very seriously. Issues of fear can lead to bites. Anxiety can lead to self mutilation. Each case is different and Behavioral issues need to be evaluated before a treatment/training plan can be developed. A half hour evaluation appointment must be made in advance before any sessions can be set.
Group classes are offered in 5 session discount packages. Classes are held on Tuesdays at 10:00am & 2:00pm and again on Saturday at 10:00am & 2:00pm. The location of the classes is at Rotary Park, 4300-4362 Wagner Drive, Westminster, CO 80031 (Southwest corner of Park). You can come once a week or even twice a week (recommended), but you aren't locked into any set time or days. Just purchase a discount package of 5 sessions from the Rates page and show up when it is convenient for you. (Dog owners are required to bring a 6' leash, collar, treats and doodie bags. And if necessary, a control device-We recommend a gentle Leader/Halti, but dog owner can use what they feel comfortable with.)
