Dog Training

Cindy’s Critter Camp is proud to have certified professional dog trainer/behavior specialist Lynsey. Lynsey will work with you and your dog to create a training program to address all of your dog’s training and behavioral needs.

Call Cindy’s Critter Camp at (618) 345-0278 for your pet’s personal training and behavior needs.

Classes Offered

Evaluations: Convenient appointments can be made for a private session to evaluate your dog’s behavior and discuss training recommendations.

Basic Manners: This five week class is for dogs from 12 weeks of age and older. We will help you resolve behavior problems and improve obedience! Cindy and Lynsey’s programs use positive reinforcement to guarantee your dog’s training success. Your dog will develop social skills, and learn basic obedience skills such as sit, down, loose leash walking, come when called, holding commands with distractions, release command and climb/place. Problem solving for any and all behavioral issues: house training, jumping, bolting, etc., is always part of training. This class is also designed to prepare you for more advanced level training, up to competition level if desired. Training provides your dog with a fun challenge and an opportunity to build confidence and trust for you and your pet!​

Intermediate Classes: This five week class is a continuation of the basic training class. Dogs will continue to develop skills learned in basic training with longer periods of holding the commands. You and your dog will learn new skills such as turns and pivots, place, send out, out-of-site sits and downs, and loose leash to prepare to go off leash. An emphasis will also be on polishing your personal handling skills.

Drop In Advanced Classes: Drop In Advanced Classes: Classes are every Tuesday at 7:45 pm. These classes are available to all dogs and pet parents upon completion of our basic and intermediate classes for the life of your dog.

Canine Good Citizen: This six week class prepares dogs for testing for the AKC Canine Good Citizen certificate. For additional information about the CGC test requirements, go to https://www.akc.org/events/cg/index.cfm
