    Puppy Prep    

    This class is for puppies age 8 weeks to 5 months . A portion of the class will be for socialization with other puppies. During training time, the puppies will begin to learn commands in a purely positive manner with plenty of treats and praise. The pups will begin to learn loose leash walking, sit, sit/stay, down, come when called and focus. Intro to crate training.  During puppy class, I will talk about common puppy issues such as puppy nipping, chewing, house soiling etc., and how to solve or prevent these puppy issues. Earn your " Star Puppy" Certificate at the same time.
    These classes are ongoing, Start anytime. 
    Basic Commands   
    This class is for puppies/dogs older than 4 months. This is more structured than the puppy class. This class is also purely positive training with the use of food lures and lots of praise. Commands covered in this class include: loose leash walking, heeling, sits/stays, leave it, down/stay, come when called, waiting at the door, intro to crate training. We will talk about common problems such as jumping, excessive barking, etc. This class also review proper equipment and use for your dog.
    Beyond Basic   
    This class is for dogs older than 6 months that have had a prior basic obedience class. This class will focus on the commands learned in basic obedience while adding distractions, distance and duration.  We will also start adding hand signals to the commands and begin to wean off treats.
