I liked how the trainers took the time to answer any questions regarding each and every dog.

Puppy I

Our puppy training programs are easy to understand. Puppies become better behaved when they are given clear rules and boundaries, and when they receive positive reinforcement for good behavior.

Objectives covered in Puppy I:

  • Teaching and reinforcing your puppy’s name
  • Socialization and introducing your puppy to new environments
  • Manners and boundaries—start your puppy on the path of good behavior while bonding with the family and encouraging a desire to learn
  • Appropriate play and general puppy care
  • Introduction to basic obedience and leash walking
  • Fun and games

Adult I

Our group training classes focus on fostering confidence, respect and trust between your dog and you through proper socialization and positive reinforcement. Our group classes are fun and family-friendly.

Objectives covered in Adult I:

  • Creating reliable basic commands including sit, down, stand, stay, come, drop it, leave it
  • Emphasis on improving focus and responsiveness with distractions
  • Manners and boundaries including specific advice on jumping up, running through doors, excessive barking, and other problem behaviors
