Ruff Beginnings Rehab Packages are created to suit the needs of our clients. That is why they can range greatly depending on your goals for your dog.
Ruff Beginnings Rehab Board and Train program ensures that you will achieve a direct line of communication with your dog in seemingly impossible situations. Our program is a one on one approach with the dog where we work on state of mind to get the dog in a mind set to be able to handle situations that he could not handle before. Part of the reason we are so successful is because the dog lives with us as part of the family.
We teach using low level, E-Collar training. This is not like anything you have likely seen before and has nothing to do with the E-Collar training in the old days. This is a high sophistication style of training with low levels to calm the dog down and teach him behaviors as if you were whispering with a leash. With this technique, combined with our structured program, many behaviors simply go away and the others we address directly and correct for as needed. Please see videos. We work with a small amount of dogs at a time to ensure they get the attention they need to be successful.
The dog will learn all of the basic commands, plus some if specified by owner. These include, but are not limited to, Place/Sit/Down/Stay/Heel/Come/Crate. Because of this one on one attention I am able to achieve dramatic transformations in a short amount of time.
Our Puppy Start Up Board and Train is the most successful puppy program in Los Angeles. Get your puppy on the right track with our program tailored to pups from 12 weeks to 5 months old.
