Second class opened for April session. Tuesday class full. Openings in Thursday’s class available.

This class looks at the development of your dog as it grows out of that fuzzy puppy and into adolescence. You will focus on learning to use fun and reinforcing techniques to continue building the bond between you and your dog while building valuable skills that will help your puppy grow into a well-mannered and respectful young adult. This class is a great precursor to Basic Obedience.

Topic Includes:

  • Extinguishing unwanted behaviors (e.g., barking, playing keep away)
  • Increased focus
  • Reinforcement schedules
  • Understanding dog body language
  • Foundational obedience skills
    Building your dog’s desire to work for you
