K9 Corral specializes in stockdog training and also offers obedience training to help you address behavioral issues and develop a stronger relationship with your dog. Please contact us with any questions or to sign up.
Our goal is provide you with an obedient, socially acceptable dog and partner in work. In our program, all dogs have to be obedient. If they are not, that's where we start. We want them to respect their handler, have a recall and respond when asked. Socialization is a must at our place. We have clients here daily with new dogs coming and going. We believe in a well-rounded dog and one that can behave in different situations around new stimuli. We help dogs find their patience and learn how to work with their minds controlling their bodies and not their bodies controlling their minds.
We start the dog in a small pen, working on their sanctioning. When they are ready, we introduce stock in that same pen. Progression is made when the dog is ready to advance. From the small pen, we go to the round pen, then to the arena. If wanted by the owner, we can proceed to pasture work. Keep in mind that each dog is an individual and each client has different needs for their stock dog, no two are alike. We train with the clients goals as our end result.
Training Rate: $650/month
Socializing is key to ensuring a confident, well-adjusted adult dog. In our 30 day program, we introduce the dogs to heel, sit, stay, down and place. We also work extensively with exposure, proper socialization and basic manners.
A Message from Becky
I got my first cowdog in 1989. Kati was an Australian Cattledog and blessed me with 16 years of her loyalty. When I got Kati, I didn't have a clue what I was doing. Luckily she was tough, brilliant and very forgiving as we learned together. In 1991, I got my first Border Collie and have not gone a day without one since. I started working dogs with the jobs I had through college and after I graduated. Working at the sale barn and running the sorting alleys gave me the hands on experience to read stock and use great dogs. Being a very competitive person, I entered my first trial in 1998 and I was hooked! Having a family has changed my direction with the dogs from competing to training for others. I enjoy every level of training from raising babies to finished dogs. I welcome dogs in at any level, and will do my best to provide the results you are looking for in a working dog.
