Puppy Classes

All the basics for starting your new pupper off on the right paw.
$180.00

What's Involved

This is a 6 week class, one hour per week, for (fully vaccinated and healthy) puppies aged 12 weeks to 6 months. In this class we will learn about communication, stress signs, developmental stages of life and of course how to train your puppy to set him/her up for a lifetime of success. Each class will have time set aside for puppy play, when appropriate.

More Information

Week 1 - This is a human only session. Please bring a pen and a notepad. Everyone will have ample opportunity to ask questions and share any concerns that they have with their puppy.

Week 2 - Focus anchoring, charging the marker. We will play some fun games, learn about the importance of focus and how to mark and reinforce behaviors that we like so that they are more likely to continue in the future.

Week 3 - Puppy Basics. We will learn how to train basic cues like sit, stay, come, etc. We will learn how to deal with puppy mouthing, jumping and barking.

Week 4 - Take it / Leave it. We will learn how to teach these cues and how to prevent resource guarding behaviors in the future.

Week 5 - You can't have your dessert until you eat your veggies! Grandma's law - we will learn how to use the environment as a reinforcer and why it can be more powerful than food in some environments.

Week 6 - Loose Leash Walking. We will learn how to create positive associations to the leash and how to make walking enjoyable for everyone.

What's Involved

This is a 6 week class, one hour per week, for (fully vaccinated and healthy) dogs aged 6 months and up. In this class we will learn about communication, stress signs, developmental stages of life and of course how to train your dog to have basic manners. Many of our dogs do really well at home, but once you leave the house it's like they forget their name - sometimes it's the other way around. Either way, this class will help you to learn how to manage these concerns.

Week 4 - Recall. There's nothing worse than trying to call your dog back to you and he won't come! There are many reasons for this and believe it or not, it has nothing to do with being "stubborn". We will learn how to make returning to you the best choice your dog has made all day!

Week 5 - Loose Leash Walking. We will learn how to create positive associations to the leash and how to make walking enjoyable for everyone.

Week 6 - Proper On-Leash Greetings. We will use everything we've learned so far, to help our dogs to say hello to new people or dogs while on leash. Leashes can feel very restricting to our dogs and this can create frustration. We will learn how to make being on a leash AND saying hello, much easier.
