Obedience Level 2 – $499 (new clients) $299 (pre-existing clients)
Do you want your dog to come when called regardless of the presence of a rabbit or squirrel?
Obedience Level 2 is for clients who want their dogs to respect obedience cues out in the real world, in the presence of passing dogs, chirping squirrels, and other prey-like creatures. While it’s one thing for your dog to respect cues in the living room, it’s a whole other ball game in the presence of distractions.
Obedience Level 2 teaches dogs to come when called, off leash and untethered! Pavlov’s off leash program is a hybrid of traditional and motivational training. Training begins in safely enclosed outside spaces, and progresses to off leash spaces.
Prerequisites for the Off leash Come Program: Your dog must have a solid foundation of obedience, and owners must be willing to tell their dog no, as the program upgrades your dog’s skill set beyond basic treat training. You can find details about our dog training approach here. Candidates must purchase a remote electronic collar like the Mini Educator, also called an e-collar.
Why? When your dog is in the inevitable situation off leash when he wants to chase a squirrel towards a busy street, the e-collar provides a remote form of communication. We recommend a high quality remote collars, like the Mini Educator. You can find the Mini Educator on Amazon for $180-$200. Take note of the price point, so you have that in your mind for budget purposes.
Important note. Pavlov uses low-level stimulation training. This is not shock training. It is important you understand the difference. Dog training of yesteryear used e-collars to give high level corrections. No bueno. Low-level stimulation training should be a subtle sensation. The difference between low-level stimulation training and old school shock training is considerable. If you have yet to learn this modern, humane way of using an e-collar, we look forward to showing you how it can be done while leaving your dog joyful and SAFE off leash.
Last prerequisite for the off leash program, candidates must be safe with dogs and humans.
“I raised, trained and competed with dogs for more than 20 years. I have put multiple obedience and agility titles on my dogs. When I got Lola, I was at a loss. She was so shy and fearful. Pavlov saved us!” -Joe Burris
“Our trainer listened to our concerns and desires prior to formulating a plan to help us achieve our goals. Once our priorities were established, our trainer behavior tested our Australian cattle dog and tailored his training to accomplish solid results. I highly recommend Pavlov Dog Training!” -Bridget Schroder
