Don’t Shoot Your Dog!

We all agree that most people are happy with a dog who is under control. However, the average pet owner is unsure about what training can do for their particular problems. Here at Key-Lore Kanine Kollege we strive
for a happy, well behaved dog. A dog that likes his job in life. A dog that will be with you for the next 10 to 15 years and a dog that is a well mannered part of the family.

Does Your dog…
  • Jump up and on you?
  • Pull you around the block or wrap the lead around your legs?
  • Dash out any open door or gate as soon as it opens?
  • Run away from you instead of toward you when you call?
  • Just can’t stay put anywhere?
  • Bite?
  • Show aggression?
  • Have behavioral issues that are hard to live with?
  • Simply drive you crazy?

We solve these problems and many more. More so, we explain why your dog does that and teach you to continue their training at home. We involve the whole family. Your dog should work for everyone.

At Key-Lore we do not use traditional, force based methods. Instead we use a method called operant conditioning. This involves using a small noisemaker called a Clicker and small food tidbits as rewards or treats. We make training FUN for you and your dog. The results are amazing! These methods are fair, humane and enjoyable. Click & Treat, we can’t imagine training any other way. Below you will find a fee schedule, vaccination requirements and some facts about our program.

Please give us a call at 810-659-5951 to set up your training reservation.

Board & Train Package

Our Board & Train Program consists of 2 weeks. During this time your dog will live with us here at Key-Lore. You are welcome to bring items that smell like home as well as their favorite toys to make their stay most enjoyable.

A typical day in the life consists of 2 or 3 training sessions, a walk in the woods, and a playtime turnout to romp with other dogs. Social interaction with other dogs tells us about your dog’s position in a family situation.

Yes, your dog will get dirty, but he will also have a bunch of fun! All work and no play makes for a sour, unhappy dog who does not want to work or please.

Included in the program will be an owner review at the end of week one. This is where we show you what your dog has learned and teach you how to properly handle and work with your dog at the same time. A second review and graduation session is held at the end of the second week. A daily training log is kept of your dog’s progress, plus discussions with you during the training stay and reviews are appropriate.

All training equipment, collars and leads are included. These will be properly sized and chosen by the trainer to fit each individual dog’s needs. In a addition to your training stay, we will send you home with our Obedience 101 DVD and Frequently Asked Questions DVD (valued at $24.99) to aid you at home after training.

At the end of the training stay, your dog will be freshly bathed, nails clipped, and sent home clean and fresh, ready to go! Additional grooming for breed type can be done at the request of the owner for an additional charge. We also offer take-home services, and home reviews at graduation. Dogs with behavioral problems are welcome. Behavioral consultations are also available.

Day Care Training Package

Our Day Care Training package consists of 5 days of day care w/training each day (valued at $110) in addition to a Nylon Training Collar ($10) and 1 Private Lesson ($45) – $165.00

Private Lessons

A private lesson is an individualized one-on-one session with the trainer.  Working with you on specific problems relating to your dog.
