Obedience / Behavior Training

Some people want to learn skills to become a better dog handler, others just want “Fido” not to jump! Whatever your needs, we’re here to help!

Private Training Sessions: $150 for a 1 and 1/2 hour session, ($60 hour if we go over) plus travel if I go to you instead of you coming to me. Just like you see on the “Dog Whisperer,” we can help solve many undesired behaviors in just one session! Jumping, barking, aggression, fear, pulling you down the street…you name it! We can also help you prepare your dog for the AKC CGC, therapy dog tests, and public access tests for service dogs! You can also schedule a “mini workshop” and train by the day!

Weekly Rates: For those dogs who need more training and consistency than you can give, the “board and train” is best. We spend a ton of time with you and your dog, and you can expect huge changes! The longer they are here, the more time the great new behaviors they learn will become a solid habit, but you will be AMAZED how much they can learn in just a week or two!

One Week: One private training sessions for YOU and your dog (1.5 hours at drop  $150 value), 5 training sessions for your dog only (about 8 hours, a $500 value), a week of boarding and socializing with my pack ($350 value), photo/video updates for you (about a $100 value) go home instructions and a bath ($35 to $100 value), all for just $1000!

Two Week Package: Includes one private training session for you at drop off, AND a  private 2 and 1/2  hour training session  at pick up ($350 value) 10 training sessions for your dog ($1000 value!) Two weeks of boarding and socializing with my pack ($700 value) photo and video updates ($175 value) go home instructions and a bath ($35 to $100 value) AND one  month free e-collar rental ($75 value) all for just $2000! 

Additional weeks (must be consecutive) This is a super great deal! 5 training sessions for your dog ($500 value), weekly boarding and socializing ($350 value) continued video/ photo updates ($75 value) and an extra 30 min’s added to your final go-home training, ( $45 value) all for just $800! I leave the price low to encourage owners to give there dogs the best! It takes time to create a new habit, especially if you need to  break bad ones first! These extra weeks of reinforcement mean you have less to practice when you get your pup home!

Truly “Red Zone” dogs  (determined at first visit)  are an additional $150 a week until no longer truly “red zone”. (These dog’s are dangerous to humans/ other animals, and it means ONLY I WILL handle them, (no employees) and will need to put myself and eventually other people/ animals at risk. These are the dogs that have already attacked/ and/ or killed other animals, bit humans enough to make them bleed, etc.)

Hear what others have thought about experience with Varian Kennels Training:

Were off to a great new start…thank you. Jager (Boxer)is doing great! I am enjoying Jager so much. She is just an absolute joy to walk.

Oh my goodness… Luke (Chihuahua cross) is like a whole new dog! He is so GOOD! Thank you so very much for helping me enjoy him.

“I just wanted to thank you again, I enjoyed our training session and feel kind of   “enlightened!” I took chopper out for a walk later that evening and he was amazing, didn’t fight the leash, stopped when I did, sat on command! It felt amazing that I was putting to use what I lad learned as well. Can’t be more happy and plan to come see you for more training once we conquer or first training tasks!”

She (female German Shepherd) is doing beautifully, I am doing better all the time. I’m sooo pleased with the results.

Henry (male chocolate lab) is doing really, really good. He is perfect in our backyard, we have a really large backyard. He is absolutely fabulous. We took him on a walk on leash, and he was really good. He is excellent in the house!

Kingston (male old English sheepdog) is doing amazing, absolutely amazing. I am so proud of him. He is just like a totally different dog. I had him up at the school today and even people that have seen him in the past said “is that the same dog?” Because he just did amazing. Thank you, Thank you!

We are so pleased with Mickey (male German Shepherd mix.) He is a 100% totally different dog. He sits, and he waits. I just thank you so much, he is just doing so much!
