Cookeville K9 -n- Friends is committed to a force-free positive reinforcement method of training. This means we DO NOT utilize choke chains, prong collars, or remote collars with our training. We DO utilize food motivation, praise, toy motivation, and select tools, such as; the Easy Walk No-Pull Harness and the Gentle Leader Head Halter.
All dogs over 4 months will be required to have Rabies, Distemper, and Bordetella vaccinations. If under 4 months, they will have to have had at least their 2nd Distemper, Bordetella, with the 3rd distemper scheduled. All dogs must be on a current flea and tick program.
Private Training Lessons ($40/lesson) Basic obedience for the family dog.
We cover; sit, watch, down, sit-stay, wait, leave-it, loose leash walking, 2 forms of a recall, and if interested, heel and go to mat. Owners should be prepared for homework/lessons to do at home with their dogs.

- 6 ft leash
