Jump Start Puppy Class

 

We’ll help get your relationship with your new puppy off to a great start with this "Puppergarten" class!  Dogs have only one true socialization period and when they are in this puppy stage it is very important to promote safe, varying and positive experiences for them.  Not all puppy classes are created equal - ours covers all of the necessary puppy areas during this socialization time.  Designed for puppies under 5 months of age at the start of class (some older, smaller breeds may be OK), our puppy class will include some of the following:


  •  Puppy Raising (housetraining, crate training, mouthing, etc.)
  •  Beginning basic obedience
  •  Sit, down, come, stay, watch, leash walking, etc.
  •  Socialization to strangers
  •  Confidence building
  •  Puppy tunnels, small obstacles, “vet” exam
  •  Puppy group playtime



Our puppy class is scheduled as open enrollment (you may join and start at any time).  The $75 fee will allow you and your puppy to attend up to 5 of the classes/sessions.  Classes are held each Saturday at 12:30pm and you may attend the Saturdays that fit best with your schedule.  Registration is still required and orientation materials will be given to you at that time.  **Classes may be held outdoors weather permitting if we do not have an indoor space available**  Class Registration and Info forms


Beginning Basic Family Obedience



Our basic manners class is a great way to continue the work you and your puppy started in Puppy Class, and is a super beginning class for a newly adopted adult dog.  Dogs attending should be at least 7 months of age at the start of class. There are no pre-requisites for this class.  We’ll cover such things as: 


  • Leadership & Deference exercises (getting your dog to look to you for cues on how to behave)
  • Sit, down, stand positions
  • Stay in all positions
  • Recall (come) with finish
  • Sit for greeting
  • Loose leash walking with automatic sit
  • Watch and Leave it
  • And much more!!


Our Basic Class meets Tuesday evenings at 6:30p for about an hour.  This is a 6-week class for $90. The dogs do not attend the first class.  Class Registration and Info forms
 

Intermediate Family Obedience



 Intermediate class is for those who wish to continue to train the beginning exercises and it acts as a great refresher for prior students.  The 4 D’s of training are added to the list of obedience commands, creating a more challenging and appropriate way to proof the obedience exercises in real life scenarios.  Those 4 D’s of training being:  


  • Distraction
  • Duration
  • Distance
  • Delivery of Reward


Pre-requisite for class: Beginning Basic Family Obedience, or permission from instructor.

 

Next Class starts:  March 26th @ 6:30p

6-week class for $90

Tired of getting pulled down the street?  Is your back sore from cleaning up puppy messes?  Are your friends not visiting because your dog is jumping all over them?  Our family dog obedience classes are geared toward helping you teach your dog good social manners.  We like to think of our training as “real-life” training where we teach practical exercises that you will need and use every day.  The success of training is dependent on a benevolent leadership relationship between your and your dog, and we’ll show you positive, fun and motivating ways to work with your dog.
