How Our Program Works

Our membership style program is designed to create the foundation of a lifetime of learning.  Take unlimited classes, move up as your puppy ages, try our popular weekly “Recess”, and watch your puppy develop into a star!

Our classes are positive based and family friendly.  Our goal is to give you a foundation of understanding dog behavior and learning so that you can continue to build on your puppy’s training throughout his life!

What can you expect your puppy to learn in class?

Good Manners

Start by building a foundation of good manners by teaching your puppy:

  • Response to his name
  • Sit
  • Down
  • Come when called
  • Walk on a loose leash
  • Leave-it
  • Drop-it

Common Concerns

Learn from class discussions about common puppy raising concerns:

  • House training
  • Chewing
  • Biting
  • Crate training
  • Managing your puppy at home

Socialization

Enjoy a safe, positive environment for your puppy’s socialization:

  • Structured playtime with other puppies
  • Introduction to adult dogs
  • Friendly greetings with other people
  • Discussions on dog body language to better understand your puppy

We recommend that you get your puppy started in classes as soon as possible! We only require one round of vaccinations, per the recommendation of local vets, and follow the wise advice of The American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior who states that the primary and most important time for puppy socialization is the first three months of his life. To read their entire article on Puppy Socialization please click here.
