The goal of this class is to socialize your puppy, to lay the groundwork for a lifetime relationship that is healthy and rewarding, and to help you teach your puppy basic manners.
The following is a list of exercises that are taught during the session: loose leash walking, sit, down, rollover and coming when called. We also offer a great Adventure Night. Additional subjects covered are house and crate training, grooming, food, toys and biting. During class, puppies will also the enjoy playtime with other puppies and an adult dog or two, and the instructor and assistant will be available to answer any of your questions. Class can be taken more than once, provided the age requirement is met. This class provides and excellent foundation for further training.
The class starts the first Tuesday of every month. If it is your first class be sure to call ahead to enroll and save your spot.
Needed for class:
- 6’ nylon, cotton or leather leash and regular flat collar
- Treats: Make sure treats are very “yummy,” different from what your dog would normally get, also you’ll want tiny pea-sized treats, since we will be using so many during class this will keep them from getting full.
