Read below to discover the differences between group and private training. If you still don't know which form of training is best for you and your pet, please contact the dog trainer, Jamie Lurtz, at 714 404 9314 or SolutionsPets@aol.com.
Training sessions are customized on a case-by-case basis and done at your home. Prices are determined by the number of sessions. What is learned in the session is determined by what the owner would like the pet to learn, the owner's dedication to working with the pet, the complexity of the task, and the pet's ability to learn it. After a phone consultation, I will help you to determine how many sessions would be necessary in your individual case. The recommendation may change after meeting the pet. Also covered is information for the owner on how to deal with new situations involving their pet. Things taught include; animal knowledge (proper diet & exercise, pool safety, acceptance of a new baby, getting a new puppy, and first visit to a dog park), basic obedience (sit, stay, come, name recognition, down, loose leash walking, recall, targeting, go to place, stand, wait, take it, and leave it), and behavioral problems (house training, jumping, nipping, unruly behavior, begging, chewing, digging, and barking).
Additional charges may apply for travel to areas outside of Orange County. Please call (714 404 9314) or email for more info. I look forward to meeting you and your pet!

Puppy Class - Proper socialization is one of the most important things you can do for your puppy, the earlier you start socializing your puppy the better. This is a fun off leash class. Your puppy will be able to interact with a wide variety of people and other puppies. Priorities for the class are bite inhibition (gentle mouth), socialization to other dogs and people, and basic obedience. Puppies from 9 weeks to 5 months welcome.

Food Treats - These need to be something your dog really likes cut into small (pea sized) pieces.
You may bring a clicker if you wish to use one or would line to learn how.
During the final weeks of class a long line will be needed to teach recall. I will give you more info about this in class.
Family participation in training is great for the dog's learning and increases their retention of obedience. However, you are the best judge as to whether your child is mature enough to participate in class and not be a disruption to others. Safety is our number one concern for all participants.
