We Provide Quality Training Services
to Train Your Dog the Right Way
At K9 Life Lessons, we focus on creating a balanced relationship
between owner and dog through leadership, obedience, and socialization.
Welcome to K9 Life Lessons, where we create a healthy relationship between owner and dog through K9 training programs. Based in Thomasville, Georgia, our services provide basic dog training through methods that promote obedience, leadership, and socialization.
Training your dog in basic obedience is required from the first day you bring your furry friend home. Dog ownership can be exhausting at this time, when they start chewing your boots or jumping on the neighbors. You might try to work with your dog, but we understand your time is limited, and successful training requires a lot of time, consistency, and effort.
We understand that you love your dog like a family member, and that you want them to be obedient. It is our goal to help you achieve that milestone.
Board & Train: On-Leash Obedience
At K9 Life Lessons, your dog stays with us for a duration of four weeks for on-leash training. While here, they will learn dog training such as basic manners, crate training/manners, threshold manners, loose leash walking, and basic commands.
A few of the basic commands they learn are: “sit”, “down”, “place”, and “here”. The “stay” is implied in the commands.
We schedule weekly training lessons for you, so you can have the chance to see the progress that your dog is making. This also allows you to gain the knowledge required to continue working with your dog at home.
Board & Train: Off-Leash Obedience
This is a continuation of our on-leash basic obedience board and train that has a shorter 1-2 week training period. During this training program, we condition your dog to an e-collar for off-leash reliability. While in this training program, we will work with your dog to learn to comply without a leash, so they have more freedom while inside the home, out in the yard, on a hike, at the park, etc. An e-collar is provided for you to take home at the end of this basic dog training program.
These are training lessons for clients whose dog has already experienced our training programs at K9 Life Lessons, but need some extra help. We schedule these training lessons for our clients based on their specifications and what extra training they or their dog needs.
Sometimes our dogs tend to test the boundaries of earlier basic obedience training. These follow up lessons will help revive the dog’s response to commands, tuning up their obedience and manners.
With each follow-up lesson, our client needs to specify the area where they or their dog is struggling the most. We will focus our training method on that specific point, so you have a well-mannered dog in no time.
I want to brag on our pup, Lemons, and her progress thanks to Brooke at K9 Life Lessons. This pup was a lovable spazz with little to no manners a month and a half ago. When we met Brooke and saw what she was able to do with other dogs, we leapt at the opportunity and asked her to teach us the best way to work with Lemons. She’s given us some amazing tools to bring out the best in Lemons and I’m amazed to see where she is today. If you’re looking for an experienced trainer who delivers amazing results, look no further!
Brooke has an amazing gift! Not only did she change my dog’s behavior, she corrected bad habits and got him well on the road to being an enjoyable dog. He’s no longer over the top with excitement. I can’t say enough about her knowledge, patience, and overall personality. Her services saved my dog and family. Thank you, Brooke!
Brooke was amazing with Zeus! We picked him up at 4 weeks, and he was a totally different dog when it came to leash training and obedience. Brooke’s knowledge was top tier! Zeus will be going back in the future for more training.
