FOUNDATIONAL OBEDIENCE

It all starts with Foundational Obedience (FOB) here at RYP. Start building an enriching training culture for both ends of the leash. From this education you can grow as a team to advanced obedience or working disciplines.
FOB packages are for dogs 4+ months old (see below for puppy training programs)

What FOB packages cover:

  • Learn about dog psychology and why dogs do

  • Understand training culture : we want dogs invested in the process of learning with you long term

  • Build markers for rewarding good decisions and progressions

  • Learn how to condition the leash as a directional language. Tactile pressure should be both a gas pedal and a brake, allowing you to coach and communicate clearly

  • ​Understand scaffolded process to build behaviors with heart and soul

  •  Transition behaviors into structured commands

  •  Emphasis will be placed on establishing five primary utility commands EVERYONE should master 

  • Learn how to proof and generalize skills for practical (real life) application and/or behavior modification

Training Culture is everything.jpg
PHILOSOPHY

WHAT IS TRAINING CULTURE?

Training culture is a phrase mentioned a lot to (human) students at RYP...What is training culture exactly? It's a symbiotic relationship with your canine companion achievable once the following is understood:

CANINE PSYCHOLOGY

Why dogs do things. How they process information. These concepts must be understood to understand WHY a dog might be doing what they are doing as well as HOW training can work to adjust current perceptions of cause / effect in your dog's brain. 

Watch these sample videos for more information.

LEARNING LANGUAGES

Dog's do not speak english. Understanding how to harness motivation and clearly 'speak' to your dog is paramount to any long term communication relationship.

Watch these videos to understand more about the learning languages we will teach you at RYP:

TRAINING THE DOG

DSC09755-2.jpg

With an understanding of canine psychology and learning languages...now it's time to tie it all together to teach the dog something!

 

Often times a dog being stressed or misbehaving is because they don't yet know what else to do in that situation!

 

Love the dog by leading them. Show them how to succeed and reward the hell out of good decisions, confidence, stability and overall growth as a team!

Watch the video below for more information about the application of training concepts you will learn here at RYP:

Vaccination Requirements

We require all of our training clients to be up to date on their Rabies, Distemper (DHPP or DHLPP), and Bordatella vaccines. This helps to ensure the health and safety of all of our guests.
