Costs of Dog Training

The old adage that “You get what you pay for” is certainly relevant to dog training, but by no means does that justify high prices. At Absolute K-9, we offer competitive prices that can meet any budget without breaking it. We are dedicated to working out a feasible plan that meets your needs and financial means, without straining your pocketbook.  That being said, please give us a call or email to schedule an initial consultation.

We are the only training center in the San Diego area that offers 0% interest on approved credit for obedience training. We are certain we can find the right plan for your budget. In fact, your dog can be successfully trained for life starting as low as $40 per month. Now just consider what you spend on cable or eating out per month and that may help you decide if a lifetime of happiness with your dog is worth this financial investment.

Furthermore, it may help to consider all the money you will be saving by having a well-behaved and trained pup. Think about how much your furniture, carpet, car and landscaping cost and then think of the risks you take by giving an untrained dog access to these beloved items. We’ve had clients come to us after their dog has damaged thousands of dollars worth of hard-earned furnishings. By training your dog now, you avoid any of these devastating scenarios, or a lawsuit due to a dog attack.

Most importantly, however, is to consider the intangible value good training offers both you and your dog. Training your dog right is one of the most responsible things you can do as a dog owner, right up there with feeding, exercising, and loving your pet.

Just consider the possible emotional and physical costs of having an untrained dog—untrained dogs have a higher risk of getting run over by running into the road and not heeding your calls. Untrained dogs are at risk of destroying your property or swallowing something that requires thousands of dollars in surgery costs to extract. Untrained dogs are at greater risk of hurting themselves or others. Also consider the emotional toll on an untrained animal who feels out of balance and maladjusted to its living conditions.

Good training keeps dogs in happy homes with happy owners. Our training rates are affordable and well worth the investment. Again, we will work with you to find a payment plan that works within your budget. And, it is free to speak with us over the phone and our first consultation is complimentary.

You have nothing to lose and only knowledge to gain, and our consultation is absolutely free. We are looking forward to working with you and are so pleased you are ready to take this step toward making your life and that of your pet so much better.

There are not bad dogs…just dogs that have yet to be trained

We believe that in an ideal situation, it is much better to be proactive in your dog training by teaching the right behaviors before bad behaviors begin.
