Basic Obedience

The commands sit, down, stay, come, and walking on the leash are taught with the emphasis on handling the dog.  The goals of this class are to teach the dog to respect the handler, to create a happy dog/handler team, and to structure playtime to benefit your training.


Group Class - 6 One-hour sessions - $150

Private lesson - $60

In-Board Training

This training option has our experienced staff working with your dog in a 4-week program.  The dog stays with us Monday thru Friday and goes home on the weekend.  We do the actual training and you reinforce it on the weekends.  After the completion of the 4 weeks, we offer 2 follow up sessions to make sure everything is progressing well.  This is one of our more popular programs for dogs 4 months of age and older.  For more information, please visit our In-Board Training page.


4 Week course - $1000

Police K-9/Schutzhund/Protection

We offer training for handlers interested in Personal Protection or Schutzhund sport in all three phases of tracking, obedience, and protection.


Milnerhaus has also provided and trained dogs for use in several of our area’s K-9 units.  Our methods concentrate on control of the K-9, with special emphasis on handling techniques.


Please call for programs and prices or to inquire about purchasing a puppy or trained dog.  A general personal protection training program, which runs for 6-10 months, depending on availability of the handler, averages $3,500.  (This cost is based on the handler supplying their own dog.)
