All pets MUST be up-to-date on rabies shots.

Royal K9 highly recommends all dogs be current on Bordetella and distemper. All pets are required to have current rabies vaccination before training. Exception puppies under 4 months in need of early in home training that have been vet checked under care of current owner, on a vaccination schedule and show no signs of sickness. If your puppy has not completed their vaccinations yet and you wish to start training please schedule them first thing in the morning before other dogs have been seen to reduce risk of getting sick before completed they have better immunity.

Royal K9 uses force free training methods to help your pet love learning and enjoy their training sessions. Instead of shock collars/prong collars and physical force let us show you products and methods that will make you and your dog more comfortable. We help shape and guide your pet into correct behaviors to make life easier for you and your pet.

Basic Obedience Training lasts for 6 weeks, with 1 visit a week, and each session runs for about 45-60 minutes.

In basic obedience, we can help you to teach your dog the following commands or we can train your pet for you (this requires additional transfer sessions in which we show you the commands your dog has learned and how to get him to respond. Please note, that the transfer session(s) can take a little bit of time due to your pet learning generalization of the new cues. This means your pet must learn that sit means sit from everyone, everywhere and not just from one person in one area.)  Please note, that all dogs learn at different paces. Some dogs may be able to learn all of this in 6 weeks and be ready for more, while others may just have a basic understanding of the cues and need more time for the cues to really sink in.

  • Teaching a food lure – This will help make teaching new cues easier for you and your pet.
