Mini Heroes Level 1

Mini Heroes Training Program: On-Leash

In Mini-Heroes Level 1 training, your small dog learns hand and voice commands on leash. We can either work with you and your dog together (Hands-On Training package), or meet with your dog independently (Hands-Off Training package). Most problems are solved with the completion of Level 1 training.

Mini Heroes Level 1 Training Includes: As Needed:
Sit Auto Sit Leash Pulling Digging
Stay Around Nutrition Jumping Up
Come Leave It Bonding Barking
Down Go to Your Bed Aggression Separation Anxiety
Heel Free Confidence Chewing
For other special training needs, contact Steve Walter.

Requirements: If you’re interested in the Mini-Heroes Level 1 training program, first fill out the training application HERE, and submit it to us via mail or email. We then schedule an onsite pre-training evaluation before signing a training contract. (The fee for this evaluation is waived for our daycare and boarding clients.)

Hands-On Training

The Hands-On package for Level 1 training teaches you and your dog how to successfully execute hand and voice commands on leash, and helps you build a solid foundation for advanced off-leash training. We work with you and your dog together, and answer all your questions as we progress. With you we solve the most common problems we see during the course of this intensive and thorough training regimen, which might typically include some combination of jumping up, barking, digging, and pulling on lead. We also help you with all other common and uncommon issues you are experiencing, including separation anxiety and nutritional questions.

You meet with a Nitro K-9 trainer once per week, and we train your dog together. You learn every technique in open parks and public areas, and learn how to apply them in a private setting. Each week you will be assigned homework to work on for only 10 minutes per day. We offer several lesson packages; all packages include complementary lifetime phone and email support. A minimum of seven lessons is required to become Level 1 certified.

Lessons are typically taught weekly. This allows the owner and the dog time to practice. It also allows for a smoother transition and gives the dog and the owner time to adjust to the new information. We train 7 days a week and can accommodate most schedules.

Hands-Off Training

The Mini-Heroes Hands-Off package for Level 1 training is designed for those who want a well-trained dog, but simply don’t have the time to participate in weekly training and homework. We come to your home and pick up your dog for training once a week. After your dog completes the series of training lessons, we meet with you for 30 to 40 minutes to cover what your dog learned, and you will see the result of your prized pet’s hard work. We also show you how to get the same results with your dog.

The seven-lesson Hands-Off package is a very effective way to reduce or eliminate leash pulling and on-leash aggression.
