The purpose of training is to establish communication channel between the dog and the owner in the form of commands, which are precisely understood and followed by a dog. And the owners expect nothing more and nothing less. Every program will attempt to teach dogs the commands and obedience and proper response; however, none of these achievements will remain enforced as time goes by and therefore these training programs is a waste of money. The Dependable K9 (DK9) program used by our instructors recognizes that and in the beginning concentrate on developing focus between handler and the dog. That builds the necessary foundation for the training to follow. That is one of the aspects of DK9 training, which separates our program from other forms of training.
How It Works
Typically the dogs respond to training in about 3 weeks. The dog owners are part of the program. The basic obedient component of the program lasts between 30 to 45 days. In some cases dogs have habits, which prevent the ability to establish focus within a 1 to 2 weeks and may take longer to break through.
The typical recommended schedule is listed below. However, the program may be custom tailored to each owner’s recommendation and the dog’s needs. From experience, the dog responds best, when a play time is included with the training, so the dog may put in use the latest training and reinforce what was taught.

That helps us to formulate the custom tailored plan specific to your dog requirements, because every dog has individual needs and behaviors. The owner’s input is important to customize the final program.
