Our Training Program
At Canine Republic, we are focused on providing canine obedience and behavior modification services with the highest levels of customer satisfaction. We will do everything we can to meet your training goals for your dog.
With a variety of training options to choose from, we’re sure you’ll be happy working with us.
Our training team uses balanced training methods to yield consistent and accurate results for pet owners that are serious about changing their dogs’ behavior and how they will obey commands. Balanced training means that the dog will respond the first time a command is given not a second, third or fourth time which is basically begging the dog to listen to you. Through Operant Conditioning we will use positive reinforcement such as treats, clicker and praise to encourage good behavior as well as administering corrections to change unwanted behavior. This will yield amazing results and the dog will end up with true respect for its owner.
Many people now consider their dogs to be members of their family. In many ways, they are. Some dog owners go so far as to interpret their dog's every action in human terms. Given this special status, as family member and companion, they naturally start to look at their furry friends through "people-colored" glasses. This is where problems begin. Dogs simply do not think like people. This humanizing of a dog's behavior leads to accidental faulty judgments about what dogs understand, what they need, and what is best for the dog.
Our training program recognizes even the most frustrated and fed up owners and want to help bridge the communication gap between the dog and its owner. A great variety of classes and private training will help our clients regain control of their lives and learn how to really enjoy their relationship with their dogs.Group Classes:

Board & Train:
This is our most effective program and the most convenient option for pet owners that do not want to be present during training. This is especially practical for the owner that doesn't have time to train their dog, that is planning to go on vacation or that has a dog with behavior modification issues.
With this service, your dog stays with us at our facility. We make an initial assessment and develop a tailored training program for your dog. Your dog is trained in all types of practical situations, inside and outside. The dog is worked around people, other dogs and in many different environments.
In Board & Train we cover everything from basic obedience, home manners, housebreaking, crate training and off-leash reliability to behavior problems such as jumping, leash aggression, possessive aggression, dog to dog aggression and fear aggression.
Board & Train requires a 2 week minimum - $1450
