These classes are specifically designed for teams just starting out in obedience, but we also encourage experienced handler/new dog teams to allow young dogs to build confidence and focus. All classes are based on positive reinforcement. We require students to take the the classes in order as each class builds upon the one preceding it.
Puppy 1: For dogs less than 6 months old. During class, puppies can learn basic commands such as: sit, down, come, and loose leash walking using games that make learning fun and easy. We teach the concepts behind dog behaviors, provide brain games to stimulate learning, introduce you to possible canine sports that you and your dog can enjoy, and teach you tips for doing puppy massage. All this along with practicing important socialization skills necessary for building and strengthening a lifelong, happy, and healthy relationship with your new dog.
