Stay & Train (Transformation Academy)

Have all of the hard work done for you!

Imagine having a dog that is a joy to be around, one that responds to your every command, regardless of distractions or environments: a dog that garners compliments everywhere he goes. Now imagine having all of that, and having the work done for you! Positive Pets clients who choose our popular Transformation Academy receive the countless benefits of having their dog trained by a certified professional trainer, all while they’re away at work or on a well-deserved vacation.

The Transformation Academy is ideal for an active family or individual who wants to be involved with their pet’s learning process, but due to their busy schedule, needs a little bit of help in the beginning stages of training. Your dog will return home from training academy joyfully responding to your every command, even in the presence of heavy distractions, and you, the owner, will learn how to maintain your dog’s excellent behaviors through “Leadership Transfer” private lessons. That’s what Positive Pet's' Transformation Academy is all about, and it all begins with a simple, FREE Consultation.

Imagine your dog coming home with more skills, knowledge and control than you ever thought possible.

Private Training

These one-on-one lessons are ideal for active families or individuals who want to be directly involved in their dog’s training from start to finish. There are several benefits to private lessons. First, you get 100% of the trainer’s attention: it is just you, your dog and the trainer. No other clients will be around to create distractions during your session. Second, these lessons are personally tailored around your family, your dog, your lifestyle and your goals. Your trainer works with you to develop a program based on your dog’s temperament and personality (because what works for a Chihuahua will not work for a Great Dane!). Third, these lessons can be scheduled to work around your busy schedule by offering evening and weekend appointments. We are flexible and want to help you succeed! Finally, private lessons can meet specific goals you would like to see your dog reach. Imagine having your dog running with you in the foothills, walking peacefully on the greenbelt, or just playing ball off-leash in the park. You can have all of this and more by investing in private lessons. It all starts by calling us today for your FREE consultation.

The first 20 weeks of life are a critical time in your puppy’s development.

This is done through a combination of private lessons and small group puppy socialization classes. Topics include house/potty training, how to stop play biting, controlling chewing before it gets destructive, and laying the foundation for good manners and obedience with commands like “sit,” “stay,” “heel,” “down,” “place” and “come.” It all begins with your FREE consultation!.

Basic Obedience

We can teach you how to train your dog!

If you are the hands-on type that wants to be personally involved with training your pooch, our group dog training classes are for you. Group classes not only teach you training methods, but also provide the benefit of socializing with other dogs and owners.

Small Group Dog Training Classes

Our small group classes here at Positive Pets Dog Training are designed for families who enjoy being directly involved in every step of the training process. Group classes offer the benefit of socializing with other dogs and owners, and working around distractions. The classes are kept small to make sure each dog and their owners are able to get personal attention without getting lost in a large group.

There are two courses to choose from:

  • Puppy Pre-School: for dogs under 5 months old
  • Basic Obedience: for dogs over 5 months

Each 6-week course covers a comprehensive range of topics that include house training and basic commands, all designed to help you create a well-mannered, happy and obedient dog. Both courses are priced at $249.00.

Advanced & Specialty Dog Training Classes

Take your dog’s training to the next level with our advanced and specialty classes! These are available exclusively to clients who have gone through our private lesson or Transformation Academy programs. These classes are incredibly popular with our clients and include:

  • Advanced Off-Leash Obedience Class: Teach your dog to be off leash through the Boise foothills, downtown, and while visiting cafes and coffee shops.
  • Dog Tricks 101 & 201: Learn unique, fun and impressive tricks like high five, shake, reverse walking up the stairs, and even the BSU Touchdown (a client favorite)!
  • Foothills Etiquette Class: Teach your dog how to behave while out on the trail.
  • The Trained Retrieve: Your dog will learn to bring you anything you request of him or her, whether you’re hunting, doing service work, or just wanting your slippers and the newspaper!

Testimonials

I highly recommend Positive Pets Dog Training.  Our dog was very people reactive, but now he enjoys people and he loves his trainers.  The staff is always positive, caring, and helpful. Tasmyn helped me learn what I needed to know and worked with me to make sure I was comfortable with the training.  I am excited to continue training with such a great group of people.
Noreen
The trainers and methods at Positive Pets have greatly helped in redirecting the behaviors of my two energetic labs! In addition, they were able to address behavioral issues and instill confidence in both myself and my dogs.  I no longer dread going for walks and the training tips and tricks expend a lot of excess energy!
Kristie
I have been taking my dog to Positive Pets Dog training for about 9 months.  They are a great organization to work with and their trainers are awesome. They really care about the animals and people they work with. Dogs that have been through transformation academies are always excited to see the trainers when their owners bring them to group classes. My dog was a rescue and had some difficult challenges, but with the help of Positive Pets we have overcome these challenges.
Margaret
We love how Positive Pets worked with us during our consultation to find the right fit for our 6yr old dog Maisie. After her first day train we were amazed at how much she picked up, and how much we learned to communicate with her during the private lesson when we picked her up! They truly help you build a better relationship with your pet through creating communication patterns that you both understand. Training is definitely not just for puppies! :)
