Balanced Training

We train using a motivational method based around an intricate marker system, with the thoughtful use of pressure based on clear communication, consistency, trust and mutual respect.

We understand that naturally there are two types of behaviors that dogs will exhibit: self-rewarding and neutral. Self-rewarding behaviors are behaviors that lead to self-preservation and/or food acquisition such as running, jumping, barking, biting, chasing and eating. Neutral behaviors are all the rest like sitting, lying down, and coming when called. We believe that you cannot reward away self-rewarding behaviors. We have learned that dogs can be taught that neutral behaviors are not only worth doing but are a great path to good things.

Murphy went through training over a year ago and is still the well-mannered dog he came home as. Training is easy and simple to maintain. The Upbeat K9 is always available to answer any questions that we have had and explain things in a way that is very easy to understand. Thank you for taking our crazy and uncontrollable puppy and transforming him into our loving family pet and our son’s best friend!

Comprehensive Training for Real Life

The Upbeat K9 Jumpstart Premium Program is designed to teach your dog more advanced and long-lasting obedience lessons. In this board and train program, we take your dog beyond jumping, coming when called and walking on a loose leash and focus more closely on teaching your dog self-control and restraint when faced with challenging and exciting situations and varying stimuli, such as seeing a wild animal or stray cat, meeting other dogs, or simply the excitement of meeting a small child that loves to hug. Jumpstart Premium is a great program for taking your dog from well behaved to becoming the envy of your friends and family.

Lesson Program

Private & Group Training

The Lesson Program offers both private and group lesson options to our customers. The goal behind the private lesson program is to provide your dog with the one-on-one time they need to develop the behaviors and skills you want him/her to have. We use a balanced and open-minded approach that is based on industry best practices and the learning style of the dog in front of us.  Because we understand that not all dogs learn or retain information the same way, we develop a training approach with your dog’s needs in mind. Our goal is to not only help your dog internalize the training principals, but to help you and your dog develop a deeper and closer bond.

We Train, You Maintain

Extended Day Training Program

Our We Train, You Maintain Program is designed to help your dog learn and live the fundamental obedience principals that are vital to a healthy and happy relationship with their owner. This facility-based day training program allows us an extended period of time to develop the neutral behaviors, and encourage restraint when it comes to the self-rewarding behaviors. We are able to work on all of your goals in a highly distracting controlled environment to allow for absolute understanding in any environment. After your dog has focused on the fundamental obedience principals, we then help you develop your skills so that those learned behaviors are long-lasting and meet the expectations you have for training.
