1-2-1 OBEDIENCE PUPPY TRAINING 

Our 1-2-1 Obedience Training Programmes offer anything you could aim for, whatever your goals!

Our Puppy programme is developed for puppies aged 8 weeks - 16 weeks and our foundational programme for any new pup. We offer basic obedience with this package, in addition, we offer our expertise and advice concerning general manners, small behavioural issues and anything puppy related.

 

The other programmes Bronze, Silver, Gold & Platinum are all available to puppies and you can expect the same service and help you'd get from our Puppy programme but with longer programmes, we are able to offer training and help for a longer period while your pup grows and ultimately reach higher training levels.

BOARD & TRAIN 

(RESIDENTIAL)

PUPPY

At ARK9 we offer a range of Board and Train programmes for people looking for a more intensive training programme for their Puppy.

Our Board & Train programme is in-house and your pup will stay with one of our trainers 24/7 for the duration of the programme. This is available for puppies of any age and you may choose to focus on a particular aspect of training such as:

  • Obedience

  • Behavioural issues

  • Protection/working training

Our Board & Train programmes run for a minimum of 2 weeks, this allows your dog some time to settle so we can make the most of the training as a stressed or unsettled dog is less inclined to learn. 

We typically do programmes from 2 - 8 weeks long, however, if you wish or in particular circumstances, we can cater to longer stays. The duration is usually dictated by your aims, goals or issues you wish to resolve because more complex training and severe issues will require longer training periods.

If you're interested in enrolling your dog in one of our Board and Train programmes contact us today!

When completing the form or contacting us alternatively, please detail what your aims are for the programme and if known: your prefered duration and start date. 

RAISE & TRAIN 

We are proud to offer our Raise & Train Programme which is geared towards puppies and young dogs where the owner would like a high level of training and the ultimate consistency it takes to raise a balanced dog. The programme is essentially a long-form of our Board & Train for puppies and will run between 4 months - 9 months depending on your goals. 

This programme can be paired with our Puppy Selection Service for idealistic results or you may already have a pup you wish to enrol.

This programme is entirely custom and any details & goals will need to be discussed and agreed upon with us. Due to the long duration of the Raise & Train, availability is extremely limited.

So if you wish to get started with our Raise & Train programme get in Contact Today!

GROUP CLASSES 

At ARK9 we run 2 group classes of up to 10 participants. Both classes are open to puppies with the Foundations Class offering the best start to training. If your puppy already has good basic obedience you may wish to enrol onto our Intermediate Class which can also be used as a next step after graduating from our Foundational Class 

Foundations Group Training - This is for young dogs and untrained dogs. The training sessions take place in low distraction enviroments such as fields and parks. During these sessions your dog will learn basic commands.

Intermediate Group Training - At ARK9 we hold an intermediate group for older more experinced dogs. These sessions are held in medium to high distraction enviroments desgined to test the dogs. During these sessions your dog will learn some complex commands while improving their already known obedience.
