The FUNdamentals program, (formerly known as the Basic Obedience Package) is exactly what it sounds like. The program teaches your dog the basics to ensure that they thrive all the way into adulthood. This provides a solid foundation for any dog to respect the rules and mind their manners. 

If you find your dog can do all of the commands listed below, check out our "Ahead of the Pack Program" for more options!


This is a 2 week Board & Train program, for more information on what is covered in the program, please see the details below.
