Would you like your dog to come when called? Or stop jumping up on guests? Or walk patiently by your side both on and off-leash? We can help! We offer Obedience Training for all dog breeds. We offer three options for obedience training:
- In-Kennel Obedience Training – a custom Obedience Program is developed that meets the individual needs of each dog and owner. Your dog is housed and trained at the kennel for one month to perform as decided in the program. We give you a printed list of all your dog’s commands and we will check in weekly to discuss your dog’s progress. At the end of the month, your dog is picked up and you are given three follow-up appointments to ensure the commands and learning all transfer.
- Cost – $1,700
- Hourly Obedience Training – your dog will engage in individual training sessions focusing on targeted behaviors during his or her boarding at the kennel.
- Cost – $75/hour
- Private Obedience Training – customized for you and your dog, arranged by appointment only. During the Private Obedience Training appointments, you and your dog receive one-on-one time with the trainer to work on your dog’s behavior. You are given homework and advice on how to develop your dog into an extremely effective and enjoyable pet. Appointments are scheduled as needed until the dog is performing at an acceptable level. We find individual private appointments more effective than group classes. These classes usually center on a standard program for all dogs and are not tailored specifically to address your dog’s behavioral issues and growth.
- Cost – $95/hour

“Briar has been doing fantastic following her obedience training in January. She has become the most perfect teammate and field companion for the bighorn sheep work I do through Idaho Fish & Game – I could not feel luckier to have found her! Briar helps to locate bighorn carcasses during mortality investigations and maintains exceptional obedience both in the field and in everyday family life. Thank you John for your dedicated work training Briar in obedience!” – Logan
“We are so pleased with the results of Ginny’s training. The weekly updates during board & train were appreciated. And John was super responsive to our questions once Ginny came home. Ginny is eager to please and now we are better owners too. Our other dog will be going for trading next month!” – Natasha Andersen
“We highly recommend Palouse River Kennels. Our dogs are always in good shape after their kennel stays and John and his staff really get to know them. We are so pleased with the results from our dogs’ first training session with John. It has been great to be able to walk with them off leash in the fields! They love the freedom and we love knowing we can call them back! After their off-leash heel training, we almost wondered if we had new dogs since they have been responding so well and enjoying their walks even more!” – Brian and Sharon Jemes
“Just wanted to let you know that Izzy is doing great. Last 2 days on our walks we have had birds and chipmunks try to tempt her but she has paid attention to me with just a voice command. She is also minding better in the house and with her jumping. Thank you so much for helping us.” – Dani & Izzy
