Puppy 102 - Next Steps (9/29 – 10/27)

Puppy 102 is meant for puppies who have already completed our Puppy 101 – First Steps class. Your puppies are finally at the age that their vaccinations are being completed and they’ll be able to go to new places, meet new dogs, and experience new sights, smells, and sounds. The goal of Puppy 102 is to prepare you for this new stage of puppyhood. We will continue work on object, people, and animal socialization. You and your puppy will learn to advance commands you already know as well as adding new ones like “heel” and “place”. In addition to this, we will refine leash walking skills and learn manners essential for inside the home as well as out and about. At the end of Puppy 102, you and your puppy should have the ability to navigate all of your new adventures confidently!

Dog 101 - Basic Obedience (9/15 - 10/20)

Our Basic Obedience class is a six-week course that covers fundamental commands and beginning proper loose leash walking. We believe that having solid obedience training creates a common language between you and your dog that helps to strengthen your relationship as well as instill confidence in your dog and you as an owner. The goal of this course is to create a solid foundation of training for dogs who have had little to no exposure to obedience training before. Whether you’ve just added a new member to your family or have just put off starting obedience training, this class will give you the knowledge and hands-on practice to set your dog up for success. This class will show you how to make obedience training fun and mentally stimulating for both you and your dog.
