Littleton Canine Coaches

Littleton Canine Coaches is proud to offer training and evaluations for the American Kennel Club's Family Dog program, including the Canine Good Citizen tests, STAR puppy tests, and Trick Dog tests. We offer multiple options for dog training including private lessons, board and training, day training, and group classes. We believe every dog, owner, situation, and challenges are different. The correct solution may be a combination of food training, marker training, leash and training collar, or teaching pressure and release through remote collar training to work through, rehabilitate, train and teach new skills and abilities.

10-Day Jump Start Program - $1900

In this program, we teach your dog basic manners and the foundations of obedience commands that you need to have a well-behaved dog.  You'll have a little more work to do when your dog comes home compared to our 3-week program because  10 days doesn't give us a lot of time to practice the behaviors around a variety of distractions.  This program is best for people who have trained a dog before or people who plan to utilize the training after the program such as therapy work, taking the dog to work with you, or doing a lot of public outings. We teach your dog polite greetings without jumping or play biting, basic commands like sit down, come, and drop it, and either loose leash walking or the place and stay commands.
