Yes! We can train your dog!

We specialize in what we call “Immersion Dog Training Programs” to fit nearly every dog’s needs and we back up our training with our IQ K9 Training Guarantee.

There are two phases to an Immersion program…

Phase 1: Your dog comes and lives with us at our home in Valley Center. We do all of their initial training and lay a solid foundation that includes listening around distractions. We are on 12 acres and your dog trains and plays hard all day. We have four full-time staff members throwing tennis balls and enticing dogs to train and play so they’re far too distracted to realize they’re anywhere other than a second home.

Phase 2: Once your dog is trained and you come to pick him/her up, we begin training you so that you understand how to communicate with the “new” pup. Your training will only take up to 2 to 5 sessions.

Immersion program spots fill fast!

In order to give our canine clients the best care and training possible, we limit the number of Immersion dogs. As a result, our dog training programs fill up quickly and we are usually fully booked 1 to 2 months out.  Reservations are written in pencil and dates can be changed.
