Doggy Day Training (Adult Dogs)
This service considers REALITY, complications, chores and challenges faced by many families and single pet owners.
- Do you long for a well-trained dog, but work long hours or have too many family committments?
- Are you afraid that, if you train your dog yourself, you won't do as good a job as a professional trainer?
THEN LET ME TRAIN YOUR FURRY FRIEND FOR YOU!
Day Training has the benefits of Board and Train- without the hassle.
I come to your pet… no dropping off and picking up!
Did you know that a canine friend that has NOT been taught their skills in various locations and with a multitude of distractions will (MAY) forever be known as the dog that “well, he sits here- but not here”, or “he listens so well here, but not here”. Maybe your pet is the dog that listens to you but “not to my kids" or “not when we are at the park”
Who has all the time needed to teach these skills in all these situations ? WE DO!
MAYBE you are blessed with a dog that has mastered all their Basic Obedience skills in a class, yet your pet runs out the door when opened! Or maybe he jumps on visitors, is afraid of stairs or cars or construction sites or kid, or goes crazy every time the doorbell rings, or won’t walk on tile or wood floors.
Do you have the time, knowledge and skills needed to address these issues?
NO? WE DO!

Program Fee: This is a customized program - fee will be based upon the number of days and weeks necessary to reach our goals, as determined at the initial consultation.
THE PERFECT PUP - PUPPY DAY TRAINING!
(Puppies up to 18 months old)
Want Lassie? Well, Amanda Berk will do her best!
PUPPY DOG DAY TRAINING is a UNIQUE & comprehensive program designed for your modern, hectic lifestyle. This program was conceived out of a desire to help you and your puppy have the best life together with the fewest trials and tribulations. How does it work?
I COME TO YOU and TRAIN YOUR PUPPY FOR YOU!
Puppy dog day training is more efficient than "board and train" or "day care and train" programs - no need to drop off or pick your dog up, I come to YOU and train your dog in YOUR environment! It's also much less expensive (and less lonely!) than sending your pup away for weeks at a time.
I know the language of dogs, how to train them, the correct reinforcement timing and AMANDA’S NO TRICKS, JUST TREATS! knows what a puppy needs to learn. While learning continues always and forever, I love to get puppies out into the world- seeing and doing everything they may see and do in their lives as SOON AS POSSIBLE.
For example, experts agree that a puppy ideally should:
- Meet a variety of people of all ages, sizes, shapes and ethnicities - infants, children, men and women.
- Experience walking on 12-16 different types and textures of surfaces
- Be gently and positively introduced to taking a walk in towns, parks and cities
- See and hear construction sounds, trains, traffic, alarms, stores, elevators, other dogs, cats, wildlife
All in a positive, relaxed and supportive manner!
But who has the time to do this? I DO!
In addition to this important socialization, I will teach all foundation and secondary behaviors - things like "sit", "down", "heel", "stay", "come", "leave it", "doorway manners" and "loose leash walking" - to your pup IN YOUR HOME, and then "hard proof" (test and reinforce the training in many different places with all types of distractions) these skills. This teaches your puppy to RELIABLY respond to these commands anywhere and in any situation!
Your pup will also learn self control, confidence, acceptance of being handled, how to take food with a "soft mouth", how to "play nice" with other dogs, and a whole lot more!
Initial Consultation Fee: $150 for 1 1/2 hour consultation.
Program Fee: This is a customized training program - fee will be based upon the number of days and weeks necessary to reach our goals, as determined at the initial consultation. Minimum 4 weeks for puppies.
