Subscription-based Open Enrollment, start anytime!
We designed this program to eliminate the hassle of start dates and make-up sessions for missed classes. You can enroll at any time and our monthly subscription-based format offers flexible scheduling that allows you to pick and choose what sessions to attend, or you can attend them all. Quests 1 and 2 introduce our foundation skills, and Quests 3 and 4 take those on field trips to public locations. We find this allows the human-dog team to grasp a complete understanding of each skill before increasing the criteria.
Who is it for?
Everyone! Quest 1 is split into 2 age groups, puppies between the ages of 11-weeks and 1-year and then dogs 1 year and up. We do require that puppies and dogs are up to date, per their age, on the following vaccines: Distemper/Parvo, Bordetella, and Rabies (if over six months)
When can we start?
Everyone must start at Quest 1; puppies/dogs with previous training experience are likely to move up quickly. Once you register, you immediately gain access to our online course material- this means you can get started before even stepping foot in the classroom. Check out the schedule below for our next available Quest 1 session!
What is included?
- Online access to our full course material
- In-class feedback and guidance while working on skills and social interactions
- Positive social interactions for your puppy with other puppies and people- we build confidence by focusing on individual needs when it comes to social interactions. There are no off-leash play/interactions in this program.
- Preventative and modification training plans for expected behavior struggles such as jumping up, barking, and chewing.
- Higher levels gain access to field trip sessions at local parks and Home Depot for some real-life handling experience with guidance.
When are the classes?
Each quest is offered multiple times per week to allow for flexible attendance. However, as both our schedule and location vary by quest, we suggest looking at the schedule below for exact class times.
What is covered in each quest?
Quest 1- When your puppy/dog moves on from Q 1, they will be able to respond to their name, sit and lie down on cue, focus around friends, enjoy body handling specific to veterinary care, interact with environmental stimuli confidently, solve problems independently, walk on a loose leash and more!
Quest 2- When your puppy moves on from Q 2, they will be able to come when called with minor distractions, walk nicely on leash, stop and wait on cue, hang out in a down stay, and be introduced to food distractions. Your puppy will be able to be an AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy after Quest 2!
Quest 3- When your puppy graduates from Q 3, they will be able to come when called away from distractions, navigate busy public spaces on a leash, stay in a relaxed down, and only greet other dogs and people when released to do so.
Quest 4- This quest focuses primarily on skills practice to help you and your dog pass the AKC C.G.C. certification!
How does the pricing work?
Our program runs on a monthly subscription rate of $150 per month with an initiation fee of $75. Your initial fee gains you access to your online course material, a private Facebook group, and a 30-minute coaching session to be used within your first 3-months. Your monthly rate continues your access to our private Facebook group and unlimited attendance to your current Quest level and any Quest level below. On average, puppies/dogs spend 2-3 sessions in Quests 1 and 3-5 in Quests 2 and 3. However, if you enjoy the class and want to continue attending sessions after completing your Quest 2 skills, you can keep attending our Quets 3 and 4 in public sessions as long as you’d like!
