For dog owners who enjoy seeing their dogs off-leash, Naked Dog Training™ is about joy and freedom. It’s about that moment the leash is taken off and your dog begins to run with playful abandon, whether at a dog park on in the backyard. It’s worth enduring the heat of summer and the cold of winter to see the change in your dog’s personality! Naked Dog Training extends that joy and freedom into everyday life, only with manners and complete off-leash control.
Few dogs wear a leash in their homes. Therefore, almost every dog spends most of his days off-leash. Life is a whole lot easier, and enjoyable, when your dog is a Naked Dog™!
For owners who are satisfied with their dog’s behavior off-leash (at home), and simply want functional obedience on-leash, we are happy to be of service. As an alternative, owners may start with an on-leash program and then move into off-leash training.
First and foremost, Naked Dog Training is about functional results. When your dog returns home he or she returns as a “Nearly Naked Dog” (complete off-leash control while wearing a collar). Once your dog’s performance off-leash has been maintained for a period you can transition to having a “Naked Dog” (off-leash control without the need for a leash or collar).
Naked Dog Training is also about the approach we take to achieve complete off-leash control. Your dog’s enjoyment of the process of learning is as important to us as the end result. For more information on Naked Dog Training visit www.NakedDogTraining.com.
Our Naked Obedience Basics is a two-week program that teaches impeccable manners and complete off-leash control. In addition to obedience and manners we address common behavioral problems ranging from jumping and chewing to more extreme ones such as dog aggression and aggression towards people.
Our Naked Obedience Fundamentals is made up of 10 days of training at our training center and one 2 hour class of handling instruction.
Unlike Naked Obedience Fundamentals where you’re paying for 10 days of training, with Naked Obedience Extended you are paying for a specific curriculum. While our target is completion in 3 weeks there is no set time. You are paying for functional results. These functional results are results with you handling in your everyday life.
The curriculum includes:
We will also address any behavioral issues you may be having with your dog.
This is the Naked Obedience program which has developed our international clientele. The longer we train your dog once he or she has already learned our Naked Obedience Extended program (the time most dogs go home), the more trainers who handle your dog and the more places in public your dog visits the more solidified the performance (obedience, manners and change in behaviors).
It’s the very same with people. Let’s say a coach were hired to teach an athlete a specific skill which took 3 weeks. Presumably, the athlete would be able to start using these skills functionally the very next week. If instead the coach continued to teach the same material for another 3 weeks using repetition but also integrating the new skills while using established skills and creating confusion and asking for the skills in the midst of it. In all likelihood by the end of 6 weeks these skills learned 6 weeks ago would now be not only habit but second nature. Just replace the coach with our trainers, and the athlete with your dog and that’s our Naked Obedience Complete program.
We can also add additional commands to your dog’s performance including a formal heel, finish, a command to remain within a 12 to 15 ft radius and just about anything else you may want your dog to learn.
