. . .provides a unique in-kennel training experience for you and your dog.
From the very beginning, our goal is to meet the needs of each individual dog and its family. We tailor a program specifically designed for you and your dog.
We work 1-on-1 with you to determine the skills you would like your dog to learn and the challenges you have with your dog. From this, we develop a training plan specifically for you and your dog. At this point your dog comes to stay at Kenlyn Kennels and receives training throughout the day. Our trainers will work closely with your dog, teaching house manners and obedience in high distraction situations.
Kenlyn Kennels Doggie Bootcamp program is a great option for those with hectic schedules or those who travel often. Our program provides a way for owners to provide their dog the training it needs while still keeping pace with their own fast-paced schedules and obligations. Once a day you will receive 15 minutes of private instruction that will enable you to maintain the new obedience and behaviors your dog has learned.
We can customize the training to fit your goals and needs. The outcome is a happy, obedient dog that brings fun and joy to its family!
On a typical boot camp obedience program your dogs will learn the following: Sits, Downs, Stays, Go to bed, Walking politely on a leash, and Recalls
Kenlyn Kennels' training schedules and programs help guide you to successfully training your dog. We offer a convenient schedule of classes that include puppies, adolescent, and adult dogs of all breeds. Class sizes are small to help meet your individual needs and create a positive learning experience.
Our puppy class will teach owners how to raise puppies into confident, dogs, address common issues that people experience with puppies. such as crate training, preventing separation anxiety, puppy biting, and proper socialization with people and dogs.
Most of all it is all about investing in your pups for lots of future fun!
This class is intended for dogs who pull on the leash, charge after squirrels, rabbits etc. and dogs who like to jump on people or pull excitedly toward other dogs during walks. In the event of rain or inclement weather, class will be held indoors or cancelled. (Please watch for us to call 1 hour prior to class when the weather is questionable.)
Basic Obedience (6 weeks)
This class is a beginners class, that covers how to teach owners how to teach their dog’s name recognition, sits, downs, stand, leave it, stay, come, watch me and basic heeling, as well as some basic fun tricks like spin or sit pretty. The owners will learn how to teach to the strengths and personality of their dogs.
The main focus of this class is to refine the skills learned in the basic class with bigger distractions, weening cues and giving stronger verbal cues. Students will learn additional handler skills and work toward real life obedience including understanding heeling and handler focus. The class will also introduce agility concepts as well as some tricks.
Advanced class (6 weeks )
Prerequisite: Students who sign up for this class are encouraged to have taken our intermediate class or an equivalent class elsewhere. This class will focus on real life obedience in real life places. Many students find that their dogs do great in class but, it all goes out the window when they go outside, or to a café etc.
Students will learn effective ways to manage and train, including sits, downs, stays, sit politely for greetings, and come with their dogs in high distraction areas. We will meet in different locations every week to provide a variety of environments for training.
Experience a sport some call "the most fun you can have with your dog!" Teach your dog to run through tunnels, jump over a variety of hurdles, negotiate a dog walk, climb over an A-frame, and balance on a teeter-totter. It's great fun and great exercise for you and your dog, and helps build a strong bond between the two of you
Rally is all about having fun and interacting with your dog. If you enjoy training with your dog and want to take it past the basics, or are wondering what a good next step would be after the Beginners and Masters courses, Rally can be a fun choice.
This class is designed to help you and your dog pass the American Kennel Club (AKC) Canine Good Citizen test. Passing this test says that your dog has passed the various tests designed to show that a dog is well-mannered and can accept the many things that he may experience in his daily life. The Canine Good Citizen test follows the course.
