PUPPY SOCIALS              

Bring your pup and join us for a Puppy Social. A great opportunity to begin socializing your new puppy while you wait for a new class to begin or in addition to the classes you are already involved in. Puppy socials are pay-as-you go. For your convenience we offer the opportunity to register in advance or you can drop-in and pay at the social.

Puppy Classes

We believe NOW is the BEST time -REGARDLESS OF AGE - to start teaching your puppy the important good companion and life skills that lead to a well-behaved family member and a good canine citizen in the community: A TEAM who is welcome everywhere!

Because we believe your relationship with your puppy is just as important as manners and obedience, all of our classes use positive reward based training methods. Good UNDERSTANDING and Communication CAN often reduce the need for obvious punishment.

By rewarding what behavior you find desirable, your puppy will quickly learn what behaviors earn him the things the puppy finds valuable: freedom, your attention, treats, and play. By implementing simple management techniques, such as setting boundaries, you can prevent behavior problems before they ever start.

Manners are what allow your puppy to live acceptably with the family inside the home in a world where calm self control is THE key to more freedom.

Basic skills every good puppy learn in class include;

  • sit - stand - down
  • come when called
  • loose leash walking
  • stay until released
  • leaving things alone (people, dogs/animals, stuff)
  • games to exercise and build self control

 

Basic skills every good handler learns, include;

  • Positive games for training Boundary Control
  • Fun tips for showing the puppy what you want
  • Games to develop a puppy's self control (impulse control)
  • Techniques for understanding how well your puppy understands what you are asking of them

 

These basic concepts will develop a foundation of communication you can rely upon throughout your pup's life and can develop into many teamwork games and dog sports!

Toilet training, jumping, mouthing, barking, digging, and more . . . these are all common behavior problems usually directly related to a lack of impulse control. These topics are discussed in classes, but for those having difficulties, private work is always available!

Lay a solid foundation for a lifetime. Not only are these skills helpful in helping your pet become a well-behaved member of the family, but can provide the essential skills of focus, impulse control, and patience for those who are considering taking one of our Canine Sport classes.

All Puppy Classes, and Manners Classes cover the same material described above!
All Classes use Positive Reward-Based training methods.
