Puppy Classes

Puppy classes are offered to puppies between 3 and 8 months of age. The Puppy Kindergarten class is a total of 6 classes. The first class is a Home Visit followed by 5 group classes - 1 hour classes ( maximum of 6 per class). The class is designed to help new puppy owners start training on a positive basis. The Home Visit is designed to assess each person's needs and give some suggestions of things to work on at home. The group classes provides opportunities for puppies to develop social skills with other dogs and with people. The training is focused on developing connection between owners and their dogs especially with distractions. The course offers training on basic obedience skills and puppy behaviors such as mouthing, jumping, barking, come when called, walking on a loose leash, stay, & self control. In addition some foundation agility skills are introduced (going through a tunnel, climbing, etc.). All of these opportunities encourage connection, building confidence, and the development of coordination and body awareness.

Classes are scheduled for evenings throughout the whole year.

Private Training is also available to meet new puppy owners needs. See the Private Training page.
