Obedience Training

We have been engaged in basic Obedience Training in Athens GA for over 15 years and have trained more than 500 dogs during this time.

We offer two training programs:


Board and Train, How it works

Our Obedience Training program is for medium to large sized dogs. The pet stays at Four Seasons for 10 days, and we work with the dog each day. Commands that the pet will master include Sit, Down, Stay, Come, Heel, Wait and Off. The goal is to teach the pet to obey each command given the first time, every time. The pet owners are not involved in this portion of the 10 day training. 

When training is completed, we meet with the owner and all family members and teach them how to give the commands with the pet present. This meeting generally lasts an hour or longer. Once the pet is back home, owners may take advantage of a 30 minute followup session if problems arise and additional training becomes necessary. 


The fee is $599.00 and includes everything except the training collar which is about $12.00 plus tax. The program does include one free daily activity. It also includes boarding and a free bath! (New customer discount does not apply to this program).

Many owners who are considering a one week or longer vacation take advantage of this program since boarding is included in the price. Go on vacation and come back to a well trained pet. The perfect end to your vacation!

***If you have ever used a shock collar or invisable fence, your dog is ineligible for our training program***

At-Home Training

Many training and behavioral issues are best handled at home.  Examples would be teaching a dog not to react to the ring of the door bell or how to use a doggie door.  Some owners simply prefer the convenience of having a Trainer come to their home.  Call for prices.  706-353-7497 (business) or 706-340-0921 (mobile).
