Total Dog! specializes in helping dogs and their owners reach their full potential! We offer two ways of going about dog training…Group Class and Private Sessions. Each has their own advantage, and some people choose to do our Hybrid program, which is the best of both worlds! Total Dog! is proud to offer the finest dog obedience training in Phoenix.
Private Dog Training
With Brice Cavanaugh’s approach to training, we find out what “personality” YOUR dog has, and create a program specifically for the way your dog learns! Lessons are conducted at your home, and wherever you need to address training, such as the Veterinarians’ Office, Pet Stores, on hikes, in your car or wherever your life takes you and your dog! Private dog training lessons are unlimited and have a lifetime guarantee!
“On Leash Basics” (Unlimited on-leash lessons, Lifetime Guarantee!)
Here we cover the 12 basic commands in and around your home, and give your family the tools, knowledge and confidence to balance the relationship between you and your dog! Not only are we covering the 12 commands, but we also address the overall behavior of your dog, helping them to reach a point of being cognitive, rather than reactive.
“Total Dog!” (Unlimited off-leash lessons, Lifetime Guarantee!)
Our signature program, where we build off of the foundation of the House Boundaries Program, but we emphasize off leash reliability! This program is for those that take their dogs with them on a regular basis, and for those looking to get their dog to really be the companion that they can be, no matter where your adventures take you!
Group Dog Training
Group dog training classes offer the basics for understanding how your dog learns, how to lead them and offer socialization that can help with the overall balance of the dog! This is a cost effective route for the Do It Your selfer, and can be a great stepping stone to one of our Private Courses or our All In One Program listed below. We meet in multiple locations throughout the Valley! Check the calendar for dates and locations, or contact us for more information!
All In One!
Want the advantages of socialization offered in Group Classes with the personalization of Private Training? Check out our All In One approach, where we offer three to four private dog training lessons, then you join one of our advanced Group Classes! We will figure your dog out, and once you are comfortable with taking the next step, we get into one of our Group Classes that bridges the gap between Private Training and the Real World! Graduates of this class are eligible to participate in our Total Dog! Out and About class!
“Total Dog! Out and About”
Now we move into the real world! This class is where we take our dog training to the streets! Each week is a different location, right in the middle of the world that we live in! Learn the skills…show off your Total Dog!
