Executive Puppy and Dog Training

Don’t think you need the intense training options? Get started on a handful of behaviors with our Executive Training Program!

Behaviors Typically Covered

  • Preselected obedience behaviors to ensure you get the most bang for your buck
  • Treatment of minor problem behaviors
  • Combination of obedience and some reactivity

Frequency of Training

Our three day per week training program includes your trainer working independently with your dog two days per week. Then, at the end of the week, they work with you to review your dog’s new skill set. While the first session of the program is an hour and a half, all of the other sessions are one hour in length. Clients typically enroll in three weeks of training.

What to Expect

During first few minutes of the first session, your trainer will work with you on identifying key behaviors to select such that we can make the most of our training time. From that point forward, we’ll focus on those behaviors each session. On the final day each week of the program, your trainer will teach you a portion of the behaviors already covered. We will describe, demonstrate, and have you perform each new skill. At that point, you’ll continue practicing. Our Executive Training Program is an excellent choice for those that want to start training and achieve great results, but aren’t fully ready to commit to the more intense options. It is also an excellent choice for owners who are experiencing low level reactivity with an adult dog.


  • $400 for the first week (3.5 hours of training)
  • $360 for subsequent weeks (3 hours of training)
  • $100 Deposit required to schedule program. This amount will be credited toward the amount due the first day of training
  • There will be a $10-15/session surcharge for locations outside of our service area.  If applicable, you will be notified of this prior to program start.

An Executive Training Program is an excellent option for individuals who live in or around the Kansas City metro area. The program is offered privately in your home where your puppy or dog’s behavior occurs. Many of the dogs enrolled in the program engage in one or two non-severe problem behavior(s) or need to be introduced to three to four obedience behaviors. Another common set of behaviors taught are general manners and obedience. During the initial phone interview or email exchange you will be given an estimate on the minimum number of weeks required based on the problem behavior.

The program includes three sessions per week, two of which your presence is not necessary. On the first day of training your professional trainer will conduct a brief behavior assessment. They will design a treatment or obedience plan to effectively help you reach your dog training goals and review it with you verbally. Then, they will begin training immediately. On the third day of training each week, you will be taught a portion of what your dog has learned. During this time your trainer will ensure you are effectively using the treatment or obedience plan designed. You are given advice, how to’s, and taught to effectively handle your own dog. At that point, you and your trainer become a team by consistently teaching your dog each day. In other words, you are responsible for teaching on the days that your trainer is not present. This helps create consistency and speeds progress towards your overall goal.
