This class is for young puppies with short attention spans. The emphasis is on making learning fun for both the owner and the puppy. Socialization, confidence building and impulse control are priorities for a young dog. We will work on the basics, such as heeling without pulling, understanding the sit and down positions, coming when called, leave it and so much more. This is a 6 week class. You can expect weekly homework and results are more dramatic if you can spend at least 10 minutes a night working with your puppy.
This is a great beginning class for older puppies and adult dogs. If you are tired of repeating commands, feeling like your dog only hears you when you are yelling or if given the option would rather misbehave than mind - you are going to want to attend this class.

From understanding heel position and how to stay beside you without pulling, to stays, coming when called and greeting other people and dogs under control. If you are ready to have a relationship of mutual respect and one where the dog is eager to mind and loves working with you, this is the class for you. Class is 4 weeks long.
