Cedar Run Company

Philosophy

We’re dog people!

We don’t believe in a "one size fits all" training, and frankly, you shouldn’t either.

Your dog has individual needs. Together, we will craft a training plan that meets those needs in a fun, low-stress environment.

Schedule a discovery session with one of our trainers. We'll meet with you and your dog to discuss goals and objectives. Together, we'll determine which training option is the best fit.

We offer traditional options that include small group classwork to reinforce socialization and create a solid foundation for skill growth, as well as training options that incorporate dog daycare to allow for skill training that meets your dogs' individual needs.

Creating positive associations will lead to long-term success for your dog and your family!

Services We Offer

Play & Train

During the day, dogs come for daycare and spend one-on-one time working with our trainers. You will take home a tired pup with a new skill!

Our Play & Train services are ideal for dogs who will benefit from the socialization of doggie daycare services weekly, coupled with the need for learning new skills. This program is perfect for both young, high-energy dogs that need to learn a few manners as well as older dogs who are ready to learn new tricks!

Play & Train requires dogs to attend daycare two times per week, for a commitment of 4 weeks total.  Sessions are available on Monday and Wednesday's or Tuesday and Thursday's. This program includes 8 hours of daily daycare and 8 total hours of training. The skills worked on include Focus, Sit, Down, Stay, Leave It, Loose Leash Walking and Intro to Heel.

Dogs will have multiple breakout sessions away from group daycare to work one-on-one with our certified trainers throughout the day using science based, fear free training methods only. Owners will be provided with a packet and daily reports to continue with training at home, as well as lifetime access to our trainers for any troubleshooting needs you may have.

Small-Group Training Classes

Training classes at Cedar Run Company are available all throughout the year. We offer training for dogs of all ages, breeds, and skillsets. We prefer to keep our class sizes small to offer as much one-on-one assistance as each student needs and, we practice science based, positive reinforcement training only in a fear free environment.

Our classes meet one day a week, for seven weeks total, and are approximately one hour in length. Please contact us if you are interested in joining a training class, we can help you to determine which class best suits your dogs needs!

Puppy Class

It is open to all dogs that are 12 months of age and under. The primary focus of this class is socialization and introducing basic skills for your pup! We introduce skills, such as focus, sit, down, and stay, with the help of treats. This class also covers topics such as potty training, jumping, nipping, and barking. Graduates of Puppy Class are ready for Obedience 1.

Obedience 1

This class is a great fit for any dog, regardless of its current skill set. The class can provide new tricks and techniques for dogs to learn or refresh the skills that they already know. This class will cover skills like focus, sit, down, stay, heel, and loose leash walking.

Owners should expect dogs to reliably respond to commands without treats. We also introduce release words to strengthen these skills. Basic obedience skills enhance a dog's life and create a stronger bond between an owner and their dog!

Cedar Run Company

Obedience 2

This class will reinforce and build on skills learned in Obedience 1 classes. Dogs and owners can expect to learn practical applications of skills with real-world scenarios, such as encountering strangers and added distractions. Graduates of Obedience 2 are prepared for AKC Canine Good Citizen Testing.
