Class Descriptions

Puppy Kindergarten

This 6 week class has flexible enrollment for puppies at least 8 weeks old but not yet 16 weeks old when the class begins. The focus is to teach caregivers early puppy training and care in a happy, positive way. Puppies will have a great time playing with other puppies and learning social skills necessary to be a good pet. Each owner will also have the opportunity to handle each of the puppies in class in order to provide the puppies with essential socialization with humans. An introduction to leash work and basic commands will also be taught.

Obedience 1

This 6 week class is for dogs over the age of 16 weeks (4 months) of age. The focus in this class will be to teach caregivers to train their dogs using low stress positive reinforcement training techniques. Behaviors taught are the basics of good behavior – sit, lie down, stay, wait, come when called, heeling on a leash without pulling and more.

Obedience 2

This 6 week class is for dogs that have graduated from the Obedience 1 (or similar) class. The focus in this class will be to increase the reliability of the skills taught in the Obedience 1 class and having the dogs perform these skills in increasingly distracting situations. New skills, such as beginning off lead work, jumping, retrieving and clicker training, will also be introduced in this class. Skills will be taught using a variety of group exercises and games.

Competition Obedience

This class is for dog and handler teams who are interested in training with more precision and versatility with the goal of moving towards dog sport competition in traditional obedience or rally obedience. The focus in this class will be to teach the specific skills required for competition as well as continuing the practical training needed for everyday behaviors.
