Group Classes

Puppy Classes

Puppy class is a great way to learn new skills, socialize your pup, and work around distractions. Class will include puppy play and training with owner. Training will be a mixture of manners, which can be various cues – such as sit, down, stay, come and impulse control exercises. The focus will be on learning how to communicate with your puppy and understand how they think and learn. This class will also teach you to read your dog’s behavior during play, their motivators and positive reinforcement techniques. We group classes based on age and skill set. Our all-levels group puppy class is for pups 5.5 months and younger. We also offer a session for pups 6 months – 1 years old new to group training.

If your pup excels in our all-levels series, your pup may move to the advanced class series. The main purpose for our continuous classes is to take what was taught in puppy class and make it more challenging with increased criteria and distractions. New tricks or simple agility tasks will be added on. If weather is permitting, classes will include outdoor work.
