PUPPY START RIGHT PRESCHOOL (for puppies 8-16 weeks) – This class is a must for new puppy parents. If you are interested in starting your puppy off on the right “paw” in life, this course will cover all you need to know. The focus of the program is exploration, socialization, positive solutions to everyday dog behavior, and education. Each week is themed with a different training topic, prevention topics and exploration items.
Class Fee: $159. includes online orientation, weekly online instructional videos, 4 classes, clicker, framed graduation certificate, and graduation present for your puppy.
MARVELOUS MANNERS (for dogs over 16 weeks) – A small class limited to 4 dogs, offering more personalized instruction without the cost of private training. The behaviors and skills you will learn in class are, attention and focus, sit, down, targeting, loose leash walking, leave it, drop it, wait at a boundary, place, recall and relax on a mat. The methodology used in class, clicker training, is based on current, scientifically proven and effective, force-free dog training techniques. The class is designed to help pet “parents” learn how to communicate with their dog and strengthen the bond with their dog through positive reinforcement. No corrections, punishment or dominance is used so it is fun and stress free for dogs and parents alike.
Class Fee: $139. Includes orientation, 4 classes, clicker, framed graduation certificate and a graduation present for your dog.
