This course is absolutely the most important, time sensitive, course we teach. More than your

command for our city dog clients and are always held in distracting situations weather
permitting. Heel sessions are never held on class day and can be re-arranged easily if conflicts
in schedule arise.
Our course attracts both beginners and those who have attended other programs and would like to
train towards a successful off leash existence in the city. While Building the Comfort Zone is
our beginner course many clients have commented that it’s more advanced than other programs they
may have attended in the past.

flow by us daily

56 day boarding and training 4500.00
56 Day Boarding and Training -Includes off leash heel for most client dogs attending this program
(for any dog over 5 months of age)
This program is especially helpful for owners dealing with serious behavioral issues and major
time constraints. Chances are very high that most behavior that we find unacceptable in our dog
has been created by us. In order to change our dog’s behavior, we must change our own. Owner
education and training is the key. At The Dog House, you will get the support and guidance needed
in order to be successful with your training.
Not all dogs and owners can off leash heel. There is a standard of training that must be
acheieved by BOTH owner and dog first.

The dog that qualifies for this program has at least 6 of the following (and more) behaviours
preventing a more successful life with humans and/or other dogs – both are important. Here an
example of some:
•Destructive behaviour with owners present
•Under socialized to many public and or social situations
•Aggressive behaviors towards humans and other dogs
•Non-stop barking when owners are home or when visitors arrive
•Over exuberant behavior when guests arrive
•Hyperactivity – rambunctious at home with visitors
•Stealing articles or food
•Bolting out doors or running away
•”Unreliable” off leash (dogs that have already been trained)
•Restlessness – can’t settle down in some or all situations
•Barking or whining at owners for attention
•Behaviors that prevent them from being able to live successfully in the house with us
Usually these issues begin during the dog’s socialization period (8-16 weeks). This can happen
either because of our misunderstanding, undersocialization, or just not enough good positive
training. Training needs to be both fun and successful and rewarding to work!
Clients need to draft a list of concerns, if any, that come with the dog. We’ll train your dog
and start them on any necessary programs that you’ll need to continue anywhere from 2 – 6 weeks.
We will be giving you more information on how this works when we speak.
We feed all dogs staying with us the raw diet. If you presently feed raw you are welcome to send
your food but other wise we feed it at no extra cost to you.
Clients considering this program should understand that training the dog is not enough and that’s
why we offer 8 weeks of free training following your dogs graduation from our program. If you
want the most from our program- lets us train you too trust us- you’ll love it.

making the improvements they want.
What happens at a consultation?

what gets addressed first if theres more then 1 issue

around the clients daily schedule.
