Top Dog K-9 Camp
All of our Dog Training Lessons are private, one-on-one, sessions with you and your dog so we can address your specific concerns. We believe that training your companion is an investment, of time and money, that will pay dividends for you and your dog for the rest of his life. We train your dog with Love, Patience, Calmness, and Consistency with mutual understanding and respect, but we also train you to be a better handler which helps strengthen your bond built on trust and communication.
Top Dog K9 Camp Packages
We require a behavior consultation at the ranch for $60 prior to training and that can be applied towards any training packages purchased.
*All training packages come with a Top Dog Pro Training Clicker!
Basic Obedience Package: This package will teach your pup to understand and respond to the basic commands all pups should know, off leash with distractions. Like I always say “Our methods train obedience not tricks, if your dog can not hold and perform the commands under distraction they are just performing tricks.” We will not only train your pup to be a well behaved member of society, we also train you to better understand your pup.
We offer a basic and advanced clicker-trained obedience course. Our basic course will teach your dog to understand and respond to commands that all dogs should know.
Basic Clicker Training Course:
Alright (releases the dog from a stay)
Extended stays (from a distance)

Puppy Training: This is the perfect way to start your pup off on the right paw! Using clicker/reward-based training, we’ll show you how to mold your puppy’s behaviors while learning basic commands, building confidence, and socializing. We’ll give you an introduction to teaching him/her sit, stay, down, and off. We will provide information and advice on reinforcing good behavior, house-breaking, and crate training. We will also answer any questions you have about your new pup or its training.

The School maintains a certain amount of flexibility in its evaluation of in dividuals and their pets.

Service Dog Training
Service dog training is a long, sometimes tricky process. Dogs must be able to perform their tasks on command and have to perform many skills.
The organizations have very high standards, and not all dogs pass the final requirements to be placed with an owner. The dropout rate for organization-trained service dogs can be as high as 50 to 70 percent.
Every service dog must be trained in tasking skills specific to the handler’s disability and in public access skills. ADA regulations state that service dogs also must be house-trained and under control at all times in public.
Not every dog can be a service dog. Regardless of breed, all service dogs need a special set of qualities in order to be reliable in their work. These characteristics include:
Calm but friendly
Know advanced obedience
Alert but not reactive
Able to be touched by anyone, including strangers
Willingness to please
Tendency to follow you around
Socialized to many different situations and environments
Ability to learn quickly and retain information
Once training is completed, the handler will recieve a ID card for your dog, a registration number with the US Service Dog Registry, and a service dog jacket in red or blue.
Please print and fill out these two forms and bring them with you when first payment is paid.
Financing: You are able to split the payments between 2 months on a credit/debit card. We do not except checks.
Payment is due before the first lesson.
