Puppy Training and Socialization
Are you having a hard time working with your new puppy? Are there constant potty accidents, excessive play biting, and hyperactivity you just can't get controlled? Puppy training can be a complex, time-consuming process. So if you need the help of a professional, our team is at your service.
You can start classes with your puppy at 12 weeks old! Early socialization experiences are crucial for helping puppies become confident, relaxed adults. Our primary goal in our puppy classes is to introduce puppies to new things in a positive way, and to empower owners to continue the critical socialization work outside of class.
This class is so much fun and hugely educational! The earlier you start training, the easier it will be! Learn how to handle the most urgent puppy training issues, including safe socialization with people, puppy biting, house training, and chewing. This class focus on puppy biting, socialization with other dogs and people (especially children men and strangers), calming and handling, attention, basic obedience skills (come, sit, down, stay, and walk on leash) and household manners (crate training, potty training and chew toy training).
Our expert instructors will teach you how to use food in training without it becoming a bribe so that your puppy responds reliably whether you have food or not. Learn how to improve your puppy's focus, speed of recall and length of stays off-leash, at a distance and when distracted.
Learn how to introduce your puppy to people, places, dogs and new situations so that they thoroughly enjoy the company of all kinds of folks, especially children, men and strangers. Learn how to teach your puppy to play Fetch and Tug and to use these games as rewards in training.
