Going on Vacation and want to add some new skill sets or polish up some existing ones? We can board and train your dog for anything from Basic Obedience to Executive Protection. We do however recommend the owner take classes and or a handler course through Von Der King in order to understand how to handle the dog and maintain the skills that have been taught.
This phase is designed for dogs that are new to our program at Von Der King. All K9s start with a 1 month Lodge and Learn. Our program is SPECIFICALLY designed not to be a 2 or 3 week cookie cutter program. Where as 1 month will give your dog plenty of time to learn the foundation skill sets needed to build everyday reliability and progression in more complex disciplines. In the RED Phase your K9 friend will learn Marker Systems, all levels of Operant Conditioning and the basics of obedience; with reliability under distraction. The RED Phase is an on leash program.
