Puppy Fundamentals 1 Course – $240.00
This class is for Puppies under or very near 6 months at the start of class! Puppies should have at least 2 rounds of their puppy vaccines to attend.
This class meets once per week for 6 weeks, usually on Monday evenings. Classes are occasionally also offered on Thursday evenings.
Each session will build off of the prior week’s course, giving puppies and owners a wealth of information and skills related to leadership, puppy behavior, obedience, confidence building, wellness/first aid and of course, socialization with other puppies and humans in group play!
We have a limit of 6 puppies per class. Attendance at all 6 classes is strongly encouraged! IF you attend all 6 classes, your puppy is eligible to take the AKC’s S.T.A.R. Puppy evaluation for a certificate and medallion!
BONUS: Graduates and current attendees are invited back for weekly play dates with other graduates of the program – at no additional cost! This is a great way to be sure puppies stay well socialized into adulthood!
Puppy Fundamentals 2 Course – $240.00
Dogs and Puppies Over 6 Months of Age
During the 6-week course we will teach you how to work with your dog on more advanced obedience. This consists of loose leash walking and walking past people and other dogs. We practice longer stays in the sit, down and place, with more distractions. Puppies learn to come when called from further distances, and work on longer waits while you are out-of-sight. We also work on door and food manners, taking treats softly, greeting strangers and overall impulse control. We address behavior concerns as they appear, answer questions, and provide insight to your puppy’s behavior. This class is an AKC CGC (Canine Good Citizen) preparation course, and the CGC is administered on the final night of class.
NOTE: If your dog or puppy shows signs of aggression, contact us for a free evaluation before signing up for this class!
