THIS CLASS ALSO PAIRS WELL WITH MY
3 WEEK EMERGENCY RESPONSE-
COME WHEN CALLED TRAINING.
TAKE BOTH AT THE SAME TIME!
Puppy / Beginner Class
This 5 week course is the first step in your training program. My Puppy Classes are not ‘watered down’ adult dog classes. The exercises and how I teach them are specifically developed for the young, growing canine brain. I created and developed the exercises I teach that are a perfect blend of practical, useful training that appeals to both end of the leash.
I teach you and your pup useful skills you’ll use daily. My training techniques are created by me and are not like other less experienced trainers. I do not use clickers. I do use food rewards appropriately to help your dog love training, gentle corrections, and simple and immediately effective methods.
Here are some subjects we’ll cover in class
Sit, lie down, stay and come taught in 'puppy style'
Early Leash Walking
How to Prevent Separation Anxiety
Getting your pup to sleep
Potty training/crate training
Car travel without car sickness
Sit for food
How to take treats gently
How to socialize your puppy properly.
We also enjoy some puppy play time during each class. Let your pup socialize with friendly, leashed and vaccinated pups. I supervise the play.
This class also includes a personality assessment. Owners are then given techniques to create a stable, emotionally balanced adult dog
Puppies from ten weeks up are welcome. (All pups must be current on vaccines as designated by your pet's doctor) Lets get your puppy thriving and growing while his brain is at its most fertile and impressionable time.
What should I bring to the first day of class?
Please bring your dog on a standard (non retractable) leash, water for you both, your pup's favorite treats (I also have some for sale at the treat table), and a chair for you.
Can my kids come too?
Yes, children are welcome in class. However, children are not safe in a class unless they are mature enough to follow instructions, know not approach or pet any dog but their own, are physically large enough to not be dragged by their pet and can sit calmly in a chair by you.
My dog has acted aggressive in the past, can they still join a group class?
My obligation is to provide a safe atmosphere for dogs and people. If your dog demonstrates aggressive behavior, as decided by me, I will ask you to take your pet home where he is more comfortable. We’ll arrange for private training if appropriate.
