Did you know that a dog’s job is to absorb up to 40% of human emotional dysregulation?  Well Balanced Dog helps you return this gift by helping you have better balance and a deeper connection to your canine friend(s).

Relationship Based “Basic Manners Training”

If a dog comes to you, that dog has a purpose with you in your life.

Well Balanced Dog’s “Basic Manners” framework for learning the “cues” also involves learning and applying the 4 x 4 tool and learning the game of K9 Nose Work.

We look at the human side and the dog side of the relationship in our Basic Manners classes.  Our goal is having quality of life for both our dog and ourselves.

The package cost of personalized training is $350.  It involves the initial consultation where you learn the 4 x4 tool and then 5-30 min. sessions of Basic Manners and 5-30 minute sessions of K9 Nose Work®.

“Cues” that will be taught include: watch me, sit, down, stand, wait, taking a treat gently, leave it, come, loose leash walking, and come.

What is K9 Nose Work®?

K9 Nose Work® is an exciting activity that teaches a dog to use their nose to find a specific scent and then tell you they’ve found it. It’s like watching a police dog work, but it’s you and YOUR dog having the fun together!  Any dog can do it! It helps build confidence and dogs love to solve problems – all this while burning lots of mental and physical energy.
