Obedience Course
4-Week Puppy School $100 per dog

This 4- week dog training class is for every dog owner who wants to be on basic talking terms with their dog. In a small, on-leash group setting (no more than 4 dogs) you will learn what we consider the basic necessary commands to have a happy life with your dog. These are: Watch me, sit, lay down, come when called, stay, drop it, leave it, walk nicely on leash, and touch or “move over here”. We will discuss common behavior issues like barking, jumping, potty training, mouthing/play biting, destructive behavior and any specific issues you have, and how to address them.

Our stay and train program is our version of board and train.

Our trainer will work with your dog 1-hour per day while they stay with us. Your dog’s schedule will be customized to your goals while ensuring the right mix of training, rest and play time as to provide them the best chance to learn and retain. The hour of training will be broken down into sessions and can last as long as 20 minutes, but given this program is intense, we let the dog tell us when enough is enough! Space for this program is limited to 2 dogs at a time.

Baylee Rucker


About Her

Baylee has worked with dogs professionally for the past 5 years and practicing positive reinforcement training for over the past year.  Originally from Columbus Ohio, she’s been passionate about learning and caring for animals her entire life. When she got her first dog, Daisy, she realized she wanted to pursue a career with dogs.Her favorite breed is an English Mastiff.
Training has always been a dream of hers since started working with dogs 5 years ago at another  dog daycare and boarding facility, it gave her a great opportunity to learn about their behaviors hands on. The more she observed dog’s behaviors the more she knew she wanted to do more. Eventually, that desire and experience allowed her to take the next steps to becoming a dog trainer and she’s been practicing and refining her craft ever since.
As a trainer she wants to help owners work with their dogs on any behavioral habits that need attention, whether it be at home or in daycare. She truly loves going to work every day and caring  for every dog that steps their paws through Homedog’s doors. She loves being able to help them, and their owners, on a more personal level. Ultimately her goal is to effectively teach dog owners how to use positive reinforcement with their pups as well as, help them create a stronger bond and understanding of their dog(s).
