Puppy Kindergarten is for puppies between 8 and 20 weeks old (at the start of class). Pet parents will learn how to properly teach basic obedience as well as tackle common problem areas such as house training and nipping. This class includes playtime for puppies to socialize. Remember, starting proper socialization at a young age is key to raising a happy pup!

Adolescent Basic Manners is being offered for older puppies (5 months - 1 year) that have not previously taken a puppy kindergarten class but still need to fine tune basic skills. You may find that your "teenager" still has that puppy energy but is bigger and more independent... they may be starting to push their limits and see what they can get away with! This class also covers basic skills with a focus on stay, leave it, loose leash walking and no jumping.

 

Adult Dog Basic Manners for any adult dog over 1.5 years old. Whether you've been to Puppy K or not, have new rescue, an older dog or just want to do something fun or different then this class is for you! We focus on Leave it, No Jumping, Reliable Recalls and Loose Leash Walking.

Reliable Recalls: Have a dog willing to dart out a door every time one opens? Want to be able to call your dog back to you at the park? Pet Parents will learn safe, fun methods for teaching recalls for any situation your dog may be in. Suitable for any age dog, basic manners experience preferred. 

Polite Leash Walking: Is your dog pulling your arm out of the socket every walk? This class will teach your dog to walk nicely on leash and pay attention to their handler. Owners will learn techniques to promote attention and turn your walks together into a mutually fun experience!

All training is positive reinforcement and understanding your dog's brain!
