FOR THE WELL MANNERED PET....
Teach your pet how to be a welcome member of the family - not a pest that is banned to a chain or kennel in the backyard never to be enjoyed or allowed in the house. We offer a variety of classes to suit your needs - all breeds, all ages.
Level 1 - Puppy Class - for ages 10 wks. to 5 months
Socialize your puppy in our puppy kindergarten class - help build their confidence on our puppy obstacles. You will also learn how to solve the problems that arise with a new puppy in the house - chewing, biting, digging, barking, jumping up etc. This course is 45 mins. per week for 6 weeks.
Level 2 - Beginners Class - for all ages over 5 months
We show you how to teach your dog the basic obedience exercises - coming when called, how to walk on a leash without a constant "tug of war", sits, downs, stays, etc. This course is 1 hour per week for 8 weeks.
Level 3 - Novice Class
This class will fine tune all of the basics that are learned in the beginner class as well as add a few more difficult exercises - distractions, hand signals, etc. This course is 1 hour per week for 8 weeks.
All teaching is done using food and/or toys. The key to success in training your dog is to keep it fun for everyone. All of the classes include an education session for the owners - tips on feeding, grooming, nail trimming, flea control, why crates are beneficial and not a place of punishment for your pet, why it is important for a dogs to be accustomed to handling - ears, feet, mouth, etc.
