Puppy programs are designed for dogs who have received their second set of shots. Using a positive approach, we focus on training for the pet and companion dog with the emphasis on reliable responses.
You will learn to teach your dog to come when called, to follow from a distance, fetch, hide and seek, sit, down, and stand. Plus all of those normal natural "doggie behaviours"... barking, chewing, jumping up, biting or mouthing, and house soiling can be discussed.
My classes are going to provide useful information about common problems and concerns that you may have about your puppy's behavior.
I will begin to teach you (the owner) how to teach your puppy. Puppies will be accliminated to other individuals, things and situations. You will learn how to teach a puppy to sit and take things gently from your hand as well as pass the puppy.
We'll also discuss social dominance and preventing aggression problems as well as destructive chewing and getting on furniture. Upon gradation your puppy will be well socialized and he/she will be well on their way to having established great manners for life.
Please bring a six foot leash, treats or your dogs kibble, squeaky toy and paper towels in case of puppy mistakes. Treats of choice is liver treats or your puppy's kibble.
Your dog's vaccination records will be required on the first night of class. If you have not already signed a waiver, you will have to do so before class starts. Click here to download a copy of the waiver form.
