Group Training

Group Instruction – For the Life of Your Dog!

Our K9 Basics group training program is designed to let you train at your pace. We offer a free evaluation (by appointment please) when we set goals for each dog and owner.

We usually have anywhere between five and twenty dogs in each session, and that number dictates how many trainers are present. For a group of five dogs, we may have one or two trainers; for a group of twenty, we’ll have four or five trainers.

Once you and your dog have completed one of the programs (Board & Train or Day Training), continued lifetime group training classes are included on the tail end.

Group classes are offered 4 times throughout the week and weekend and evening classes available to fit every schedule.  Classes are designed to challenge you and your dog to overcome real world distractions by providing fun, interactive instruction from our knowledgeable team of professional dog trainers.

If for any reason you would like to reschedule your appointment, we kindly ask that this is done at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled evaluation. K9 Basics Dog Training asks that if you are unable to attend your scheduled demo/evaluation, that you cancel your appointment either by phone call or by email.  No shows or failure to cancel are subject to a charge of $50.00.

Group training comes with built-in distractions. We have to train the dog to pay attention to their owner, instead of all the distractions that are going on around them, because their attention span is so short. We’re building attention to command.

Ownership Has its Privilege

In contrast to our Board and Train program, in group training, everything is going to flow through the dog owner. Each owner handles his or her dog. Our trainers will demonstrate a technique or exercise for the students (owner/dog pair) to duplicate.

Trainers are there to help the owners if they are having trouble, but the owner is the primary person working with the dog. The owner is going to make the decisions, and the better the dog gets, the more freedom we’re going to give the dog.

See Results!

You will start to see changes in your dog after the first couple sessions. Of course, you will need to work with your dog at home in between sessions.

Doing so reinforces the training, as well as strengthening your bond with your pet!

Keep On Training

With our program, you can stop and re-start training at any time. The behavior of your dog will change over his lifetime, and maturity makes a difference. Problems can arise that didn’t exist before due to other situations in your and your dog’s lives.

We at K9 Basics will be here for you, whenever you need us.

Get In Touch

Four Sessions Weekly

We offer four training sessions each week, so you can come out as often as you want. Each session lasts 45 minutes, with nights and Saturdays being the most popular.

Nothing Is Off Limits

Just visiting? No problem. Feel free to roam anywhere in our facility. Anywhere at all… from the front office to both wings of the kennel; to the grooming and linen rooms; to the outside play-yards and runs. Nothing is off limits.

A Little Bach (No Pun Intended) In The Evening

At night, your dog is treated to doggy-friendly music. Everything from Native American flute to classical piano. One of the most requested pieces (by the dogs, of course) is “Classical Wolf”, a piece of music composed specifically for dogs. When we turn that on at night, ohhh man… the difference is amazing!

The dogs are just plain ‘out to it.’ Either dead calm, or sound asleep and snoring contentedly.

Board and Train

If you happen to have a dog that not only needs accommodation for a set period, but also needs training, you’ve come to the right place. At K9 Basics we offer one of the largest professional dog training and boarding services in New Jersey. So, if you feel that you’d rather have your dog trained by a certified dog trainer than attempt it on your own, please don’t hesitate to ask us about the program.

We Can’t Help It If We’re Popular

It seems that the word has spread far and wide. How do we know this? Because we’ve got dog boarding clients coming from all over! Everywhere from South Jersey, Philadelphia, Delaware and North Jersey… through to Connecticut and Vermont. We also have long term clients who frequently board for 3-6 months at a time.

So, whether your dog needs board and breakfast for a night, a week, a month, or even 6 months.

Just call us for a chat and then c’mon over and inspect the center.
