SMALL GROUP CLASSES

 

Level 1 - all dogs  begin here.

Puppies learn social skills from their mother and litter-mates during their first weeks of life. Once they become part of a human family it is essential that they learn to be a good companion and neighbor, and time for you to learn to be a responsible pet owner. The sooner you begin the more satisfied you'll be. But remember, it's never too late... you can teach an old dog new tricks!

Level 1 accepts ages 8 weeks and up. We don't segregate dogs into puppy and adult groups. It is essential that all dogs learn to socialize properly across developmental stages of life and when it comes to learning the basic tricks and manners necessary to a pet's success, age is not as important as technique.

Course features:

  • Basic control exercises (tricks) including:
  • Come, Sit, Down, Stay, and proper leash walking
  • Proper play and socialization
  • Basic care and handling of dogs
  • Nuisance behavior prevention including: nipping, jumping and stealing
  • House training and destruction prevention

 

Level 2 - for Level 1 graduates who want to expand their training potential.

Enjoying your companion more now that it has completed basic training? Then continue that trend by expanding those skills with more demanding and complex exercises. Level 2 provides the structure and guidance needed to continue to advance your dog's training and reliability.

 

Course features:

  • Emphasis on making you a better trainer
  • Expanded practical exercises (tricks) to give you more control
  • Safety and distraction training
  • Emphasis on response reliability



INDIVIDUAL SESSIONS

 

Private Classes - for lifestyles that don't conform to group schedules.

We offer individual training classes in blocks of 4 sessions aimed at producing a pleasant pet, while giving households good control of their pet at home and On-Leash in public. Normal puppy precociousness, including basic house training and excessive mouthing, is addressed.

Either Level 1 or Level 2 curriculum is available.

Private classes can be scheduled at our facility or your location.

Call our business office for scheduling information.
