Whether your dog has had previous training or not, Adult Dog Foundations Level 1 is the beginning step at Doglando if your dog is between 8 months and 2 years old.

At Doglando, we focus on the individual dog.

 

We provide each dog the specific support they need to ultimately enjoy a life of abundance and freedom.

Unlike typical obedience training, we instill the values of:

  • human-dog relationships
  • dog-to-dog interactions
  • your dog’s ability to harmoniously co-exist in a world beyond your home environment

 

We believe that teaching your dog skills is only 1 part of the equation.

The other, more important components, require us to:

  • Teach your dog how to apply their skills to enhance their experiences, and yours.
  • Teach your dog the value of these fundamental skills in a way that creates expansive opportunities for them to live a life that focuses on quality, companionship, and rich experiences.
  • Enhance their daily living by creating opportunities in their daily routine which allow them to meet their needs fully.

 

In other words, eliminating:

  • frustration
  • boredom
  • fear
  • anxiety
  • aggression
  • hyper-activity
  • and, agitated internal states of any kind

 

This is the key difference in the way we interpret the need of dog training vs. the need for a lifestyle that promotes learning - intuitively and naturally.

Doglando's "Whole Dog" Approach

to Training

At Doglando, our training programs offer much more than "training" alone. Our philosophy includes 3 components that work together for a "whole dog" approach to well-being:

  1. Training Teaches key behavioral responses to specific signals and develops skills.
  2. Canine Skill Building Generalizes skills to different scenarios, environments, and conditions, for mastery and fluency.
  3. Enrichment*  After your dog has successfully attained the skills necessary for our trainers to engage them in group play, our Enrichment program offers rich learning opportunities for your dog off-leash and in nature, with total freedom of choice and space.

To ensure the safety and well-being of all the dogs in our care, and to provide an environment where your dog can truly thrive, we require all dogs over 8 months old to complete this learning journey, and score sufficiently on our Behavioral Assessment.

 

After completing ADF Level 3, we will assess your dog as an individual to determine if they require more Skill Building with our trainers before enrolling them in our Canine Enrichment program.

  • Online Training

    Through training, we teach your dog key behavioral responses to specific signals, which we refer to as "skills".

     

    Each week, you and your dog will learn together, in the comfort of your own home - an environment your dog is already familiar with.
     

    Watch our video training lessons on your computer, smart phone, or tablet.

     

    You'll get instant access to Lesson 1 when you register, so you can start right away!

  • Canine Skill Building

    We like to think of Skill Building as giving your dog a job. 

     

    Rather than sitting at home waiting for you to come home, we've created a full day of experiences that allow your dog to learn, play, and exercise.

     

    Each week of the training program, we build upon your dog's skills and generalize them to different scenarios, situations, and conditions (both on-campus and off-campus). This helps your dog master the skills and become fluent in them.

  • 6 Weeks of Q&A Sessions with a Trainer*

    (included with "Good Dog" and "Rockstar Dog" packages, only)

    Skills are great to have, but practice of these skills is critical in strengthening mastery and fluency. Think of this as learning a new language.

     

    A week after each video lesson, we will meet on a Zoom video chat for a Q&A Call, where you can ask any questions you have about the training lessons.

     

    You can also get Trainer Feedback on our Private Facebook Group anytime during your training program. Just use your smart phone to record a video of you working with your dog, and send it to our trainers for feedback!

    Choose Your Training Package

    We offer 3 packages for Adult Dog Foundations: 

    • Packages 1 and 2 include online training lessons, and Skill Building 1 or 2 times a week.
      • To develop the best relationship with your dog, we highly recommend that you invest the time and energy to practice our online training exercises with your dog.
    • Package 3 does not include online training lessons. It only includes 3 Skill Building days a week.

    Prior to enrollment, for the safety and wellness of your dog, and every dog in our care, your dog must pass a Behavioral Assessment with a Doglando trainer.
