If your animal needs help with a specific physical or behavioral issue, in-home behavior consultations are the perfect option for you. Sessions are done in your home or a place of your choosing, with personalized plans to fit your and your pet’s needs and your lifestyle. Everything from teaching your dog to swim in your pool or to go along safely with your horses to providing confidence when taking your dog out in public places.
Your pup’s training potentials are only limited by your imagination! At Island Dog Obedience, we can teach your dog anything from swimming in your pool to running alongside you and your horses.
During our on-location training, we also train your dog to accompany you safely in public places so you don’t have to worry about taking your pup out of the house into risky situations.

What To Expect
Because every dog’s needs are different, we create a custom training program specifically designed for your pup. During our phone consultation, we will discuss the behavioral adjustments you are looking for and put together the perfect training plan for your furry baby.
Please note, if further information is needed or, a more in-depth consultation is necessary, we may request an on-site consultation so we can have some one-on-one time with your pup. We do this in order to ensure the best possible lesson plan and outcome.
We want you to be as confident in our process as we are. To help us with this, please be as descriptive as possible when scheduling your consultation. We look forward to meeting you and your pup!

While we focus on your dog’s specific behavior needs and learning style, the emphasis areas during our training are on the accompanying list.

It all depends on your dog, however, we do pride ourselves on helping your dog understand the difference between being on the leash and off-leash as well as how to act under both circumstances.
Teaching leash free commands come standard with the 2-week Board & Train. We expose your dog to a variety of different environments and test the obedience commands for optimal results.
We can create a training program that can lower your dog’s reactivity to different stimulus. For severe human and dog reactivity, we recommend at least 3 weeks Board & Train for the best possible outcome. Aggression can’t be fixed but your dog’s level of reactivity can be lowered to a minimum
Instilling confidence in anxious dogs is one of our specialties! We generally recommend at least 2 weeks of Board and Training. Depending on the level of their anxiety, some dogs take longer getting used to different situations and lowering their reactivity.
The service dog test is referred to as the Canine Good Citizens Test. We offer training services to prepare your pup for the test and even provide the test to get your dog certified.
Of course! We provide obedience training for all corrective behavior. This includes nipping, biting, jumping, chewing, barking, digging, and all other bad behaviors that may need correcting.
We love all puppies, however, we do require that the pup is at least 5 months old before beginning our training and has all of his/her shots and vaccinations.
Proper on-leash behavior is one of our most requested services and comes standard with the Board & Train program.
