Basic manners, such as sit, down, and stay

Puppy training foundations

Improving leash manners

Politely greeting people

Coming when called

Fun Fact and Benefits

  • As always, we will never use tools or methods that may be painful or frightening for dogs, such as leash or verbal corrections, choke chains, prong collars, or shock collars. You can trust that we will only use positive, effective, force-free methods and ensure your dog always has a blast while they’re learning.
  • We’ll work hand-in-hand with the staff at CTF, so they can continue to reinforce learned behaviors at daycare, and your dog can be their best selves at home, daycare, and in training.
  • You’ll have access to your dogs’ trainer to discuss progress and training at any time! 
  • We’ll send you videos of each session, and the trainer will explain how to apply these principles at home, so you can continue to maintain better behaviors. 

Pick up and Safety

  • Only your trainer will pick up and drop off your dog (with extremely rare exceptions when K9TT management may assist for transport).  
  • The dog will be comfortably and securely fit to a martingale collar, which will have K9TT identification tags. A hand-held leash will be clipped onto the martingale collar and held by the dogs trainer at all times.
  • A second leash! A a slip lead will be used and clipped securely to the employees waist so the dog is directly connected to the trainer at all times. Yeah, we know, excessive– but your dog will be wearing a primary and a secondary leash just for extra safety!
  • We’ll carefully place the dog into in a crate in the car of their trainer who will drive them directly to K9TT at 160 Vester St. in Ferndale, which is a total of .8 miles from CTF Ferndale.
  • The dog will remain with their trainer during the entire duration of their session from pick up to drop off.
  • Unless they are actively in the training room, dogs will remain on all safety gear until they are brought back to CTF and enter the catch pen that leads to their play room.
