In addition to retriever training Legacy Retrievers also offers several different Obedience Training Courses for most medium and large breeds. Obedience is the first step in making a solid retriever and a well mannered pet. Our Obedience Training Courses will supply your dog with a solid foundation for any type of training you may want to pursue in the future. All our obedience training courses are a flat rate, you pay for the job, not for x amount of days. We do this in order to tailor each course to your dog, as not every dog learns at the same speed. At Legacy Retrievers we want your pet to remain a happy enthusiastic dog that is happy to work for you, not a robot who has no personality.
Upon completion of any Obedience Training Course we will walk you through your pets training step by step. If you need multiple sessions to make this happen then it's not a problem! We want you to be comfortable and confident while working your dog. Once you take your dog home we are still here if you need help! You may always reach out to us with questions.
We often get the question of "When should I start my pups training?" We believe in letting the pup mature before it receives any "formal obedience training". Light obedience training that is treat oriented with high praise will be performed for dogs that are 3 to 4 months of age. Your pet will be ready to move to a more advanced Obedience Training Course once they reach 5 to 6 months old. While it is always better to get an early start on training, we at Legacy Retrievers are fully capable of training your older misbehaved canine as well. We have had great success with multiple breeds and dogs of any age, our oldest being 7 years old!
Like our Retriever Training Program, all boarding and food is included in the price.
