At On Q Dogs we consider the dog in front of us. We don’t expect the dogs to fit into a certain box. We will not push the dog in ways that are detrimental to their progress. Because we respect the dogs as individuals who learn at different paces, these are guides and not set in stone. You can expect wonderful things from our program and we work hard to give your dogs the best and most up-to-date training methods.
With all our training programs you must be prepared to continue to practice the training in order for the dog to retain their skills. We will help guide you so that you feel as prepared as possible to continue the training.
*All programs require poof of shots
*Intact dogs welcome

4 WEEKS (board and train)
Our four week board and train is our most popular training program! It is a fully comprehensive training program covering everything from basic to severe training needs. Every dog is different and that is why we cater the program specifically to your dog’s personality.
During their stay, they will be on a structured training routine as well as a feeding and exercise regime to enhance their training experience. Your dog will also be taken out into real world settings to practice their skills with high levels of distractions.
You will have follow up support, discounts on vacation boarding with us and free group training to maintain your dog’s skills. Your dog will be sent home with necessary training gear (e collar, prong collar, and place bed) and you will receive training on how to work with your newly trained dog to continue their progress.
Skills we target:
Sit (implied stay)
Down (implied stay)
Place (implied stay)
Loose leash walking
E collar training
Off leash control (for qualified dogs)
Public access training
Loose Leash Camp
1 WEEK (board and train)
Do you just want to be able to walk you or dog in peace? Does your dog pull or drag you? Are they distracted and ignore you on walks? Our one week Loose Leash Camp will help with that! During this course your dog will stay with us and be trained on the skill of calm, structured walks. We will also take them out on two public outings to work on their skills with distractions. You will then be trained on how to walk your dog as well as redirect them from distractions. You will be instructed on how to continue their progress and on how to use their new tools. You will be required to provide a herm sprenger brand prong collar or a mini educator e collar depending on preference.
THIS IS NOT FOR DOGS WITH BEHAVIOR ISSUES SUCH AS DOG AND PEOPLE REACTIVITY. If you are unsure, this can be determined upon evaluation. Dogs with behaviors issues must go through the full four week board and train.
Dogs must also be able to be calm in a crate during down time to enter this course
E Collar Boot Camp
2 WEEKS (board and train)
Do you long for your dog to have that off leash freedom? To adventure with you, or run in a field and actually come back when called? They can with E collar Boot Camp!
This is for dogs who have formal training under their belt already such as, puppy camp, board and train, competing or training in dog sports. If they have behavioral issues they need work with they need to go through the full four week board and train. To qualify for this program dogs need to be evaluated by me first. This program is best for dogs who do generally well with their obedience but owners would like to top off their training with the e collar for more reliability. This program includes an e collar technology mini educator 1/2 mile.
(under 6 months old)
Here is how it works:
You drop your puppy off at my place to stay with me for three days a week. Puppy camp runs for 5 consecutive weeks. During this time I am training your puppy and getting to know them and their learning style. After three days you pick the puppy up we will discuss what was worked on and you will be given homework to work on till you bring your puppy back the following week. I also take them on field trips and socialize them to new environments as well as with my dogs who are stable, well behaved dogs. Puppy camp is a team effort and you will be required to be part of the training process in order to optimize your puppies training experience and set them up for success. There is no replacement for starting a puppy’s education early and it is one of the best gifts you can give your young dog.
During puppy class we target:
And some customized goals
During puppy camp you will receive videos and photos of what we are working on as keepsakes and visual aids.
Private lessons are sold in packages of 2, 3 or 5. They are about an hour long and we work on your dog’s needs. We will focus on one dog at a time. Tools may be recommended such as a prong collar, e collar, treat pouch, place bed, and/or a long line and you will be required to purchase those on your own. Lessons are scheduled about weekly. You have up to two months to use your lessons.
Have peace of mind while you are away and leave your dog with us for exercise and fun! Don’t leave your loved one in a noisy, overcrowded kennel environment with rotating staff. Leave them with us in a home away from home atmosphere. Dogs are offered plenty of free time and attention. Training clients will receive refresher training during their stay. We have a limited number of spots to ensure all the dogs in our care get lots of one on one time, so aim to book early.
