The Hunter Canine Live and Train is a program where your dog is integrated in the trainers home and experiences a personalized and fun-filled retreat where they not only work on improving their skills and behaviors, but they also have fun and get the one-on-one attention they deserve as opposed to being boarded in a kennel with many other dogs. With the Live and Train Program, our trainers spend the time doing the repetitious leg-work for you, and then the new skills your dog has learned are transferred to the Owner via 3 private lessons. Hunter Canine offers lifetime virtual support for all live and train dogs.

Dog/Puppy Selection, Evaluation, and Placement

Find the perfect canine companion for your families lifestyle

  • Consultation: Meet with the trainer to discuss what kind of dog or puppy you are looking for. The trainer can help you determine this if you do not already know. Whether you like to camp, run, relax, do dog sports, the trainer will help you determine what breed or temperament to look for.

  • Breeder or Rescue selection: The trainer will provide you a list of responsible, ethical breeders and/or rescues that have the type of dog you are looking for.

  • Dog medical and behavioral evaluation: The trainer will meet with the breeder/rescue and perform a comprehensive medical and behavioral evaluation of the dog to ensure it is a proper match for you.

  • Integration into the home and jump-start training: The trainer will meet with your family when the dog comes home and assist with facilitating a decompression period for rescue dogs, and foundational exposure and socialization for puppies.

  • Continued training: The dog/puppy matchmaking service includes 3 private lessons to ensure a smooth transition for your new dog or puppy!
