Winter Group Classes

Puppy Fundamentals

Your puppy’s early life is important. Teaching fundamental skills and providing socialization are all excellent ways to start your puppy off on the right foot. This class emphasizes appropriate socialization, confidence building skills, basic obedience and problem prevention through the use of reward-based, positive training methods. We want to help you and your puppy succeed for life.

Puppies – 9 weeks to 20 weeks at the start date of class

First class is humans only (no dogs please) and will last approximately 1 hour.

January 31st – March 21st (skip Feb. 28th) at 5:30-6:15pm

Copy of 1st round of vaccinations, completed questionnaire, and signed waiver required – please bring with you at first class

Basic Foundation Skills II
Building upon our Basic Foundations Skills class, we will be refining you and your dog’s skills in stays, recalls, and loose leash walking with distractions. We will also be working on more “zen” and attention behaviors, relaxation techniques, CGC exercises, games, and mental stimulation exercises all through the use of positive, reward based methods. This class is best for
adolescents and young dogs or if your dog needs a refresher course.

Pre-requisite:
Dogs – 6 months and older who are friendly, social, and quiet.  If you are not sure whether your dog would be appropriate for a group class, we have a hand out we can send you.
Dogs must have completed a basic obedience course and have a solid sit, down, and eye contact.

Basic Foundation Skills for 25 lbs and Under
We realize that being a small dog owner can present its own unique challenges.

We will also be teaching you issues of safety and handling that pertain to small dogs.
