Puppy Basic Training

Puppy Basic Training is a 7 week beginning obedience class for puppies aged 12 weeks to 10 months.  Using positive reinforcement to reward the puppy for the behavior we want, we teach the skills of sit, down, loose leash walking, release, impulse control, come, going to a mat or place, body handling, and handler focus.  Training questions will focus on the developing adolescent puppy rather than training an adult dog.

Impulse Control - New class starting Dec 4 - Thursdays - 5:50pm!

Designed for dogs who want what they see and they want it now! The class will teach dogs to leave and ignore all sorts of distractions and check in with their handler rather than go for whatever they see.  Skills taught are sit and down stay, leave it, attention to handler, polite greeting of people, loose leash walking around distractions, staying on a mat or place, and control play.  This class is for dogs that lack self control, not for reactive dogs.

Prerequisite: Basic Training or permission of the department head
