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.
