I can’t recommend Laura and Finn Family Dog Training enough. We have two dogs that just needed a little more structure and some guidance to be able to calm the heck down. During our board and train, Laura was the capable, loving hand our dogs needed to work through their anxiety and start living happily within some boundaries. “Place” is a real game-changer in our house. Our lives as dog-parents has significantly improved since our pups came home from their time with Laura!

Off-Leash E-Collar Hybrid Training

 

1 Week Board and Train + 4 Private Lessons

Ideal for: Families that want to have off-leash reliability for hiking, camping and having more adventures with their dogs. The hybrid program is designed for dogs with minor behavior issues such as jumping, lack of listening skills and pulling on walks. For more intense behavior issues such as separation anxiety and aggression, please check out our comprehensive board and train programs below.

E-Collar Hybrid training starts with a week at lead trainer, Laura’s home in Aurora. During the week long board and train, your dog will learn the foundations of e-collar and the following commands:

  • Off-leash heel

  • Off-leash recall

  • Place Command

  • Out Command

  • Looking to humans for direction in order to make better choices

  • How to be calm and quiet in the crate

During the week, we will dive into specifically address any naughty behaviors your dog may be having while also adding the benefits of low-level modern e-collar training. This program will teach you everything you need to know to build a strong relationship and off-leash trust with your dog.

 

What to expect with the Hybrid E-Collar Program: 

Week Long Board and Train (7 Days): Drop off and pick up will be at Trainer Laura’s home in west Aurora near CU Medical Campus. We will introduce the e-collar to your dog by teaching them a number of commands as a gateway to a better state of mind, hold them accountable and give them plenty of structure to set them up for success when they get home. Daily updates will be posted on Facebook and/or Instagram unless otherwise discussed. We will work together for an hour long private lesson upon pick up so you have the tools and confidence to continue training once your dog is home.

Follow Up #1: We will specifically address any behavior problems that have not been solved by your dog's new routine and the commands your dog now knows.  We will continue to work with the e-collar to make sure you are super comfortable using it correctly and practice the "come" command for that off-leash reliability.

Follow Up #2: We will continue to address any trouble you've run into during the course of training.  If your dog needs more help in crowds, we will venture to a location with lots of people.  If your dogs gets weird around other dogs, we will go practice our walk near a dog park.  Each session is designed to set your dog up for success and specifically address the concerns you're having. 

Follow Up #3: We will work together to troubleshoot any problems that you encountered over the course of the last two months of being your dog's leader, and practicing a calmer walk and holding your dog accountable to impulse control.  If everything looks good, we will do something fun with your dog- go for a hike, agility work at an empty playground, etc.

Board and Train

Ideal for: Dogs that struggle with making good choices around other dogs or humans due to anxiety, fear, brattiness or too much excitement to think clearly.

The Board and Train program is a complete overhaul for those dogs that are really struggling. Your dog spends three to four solid weeks, immersed in a home environment with lots of structure, leadership and good influences to set him up for success.  He will learn obedience skills as a way to make better choices, how to calm down on command while also unlearning those naughty behaviors that have made life challenging for you (and your dog).  The Board and Train program is designed to teach your dog to make better choices and have impulse control. We specialize in using leadership, structure, body pressure and low-level modern e-collar training to address naughty behaviors and replace them with better choices.  This program will teach you everything you need to know to build a strong relationship and off-leash trust with your dog. To set your dog up for long term success, it takes time to reset those old patterns which is why we recommend at least three weeks with us.

• STOP excessive barking
• STOP lunging at other dogs or people
• STOP ignoring you while walking
• STOP stealing things off counters
• STOP rushing out the door
• STOP guarding food, treats and toys
• STOP growling at people

All while teaching important stuff like:
• relaxed heel
• place
• sit/stay
• recall on command
• down
• crate training
• impulse control

Program Includes:

  • Three week board and train

  • Four private lessons (one on the day your dog goes up and three follow up lessons)

  • E-Collar Technologies Mini Educator e-collar

  • All necessary equipment: Herm Sprenger prong collar, slip lead, quick snap collar

  • Off-leash reliability through e-collar training

  • A personalized plan to help you achieve the goal of your ideal dog

  • Membership to our continuing education group lessons/pack walks

  • Access to client-only VIP Facebook group
