Puppy Club - Saturday 9 – 10am

Tiny Puppy Club is for all the dogs who train with us. In this puppy club we do basic obedience skills with your dog to help build a foundation for an obedient and intelligent assistance animal. If you have trouble getting your dog to listen or perform a command, our staff will come over and help you one-on-one.

Puppy Kindergarten - 4 weeks

Our puppy kindergarten course is geared towards pups who are new to training and just beginning to build their skills. Using positive reinforcement, we work on foundational obedience with you and your pup. Your pup will surprise you with how quickly they learn sit, down, recall (‘come’), and beginner leash walking skills. We work on socialization by introducing your pup to dogs with various energy levels. 2 sessions of puppy club are included with this course. Our trainer will also answer questions and share information about how to deal with common behaviors such as mouthing, chewing, jumping, and potty training. The skills developed during this course will directly translate to successful completion of the AKC S.T.A.R Puppy Program in the subsequent intermediate course.

Intermediate Obedience  - 4 weeks 

This course picks up where kindergarten left off. Here basic obedience skills are mastered. Loose leash walking is an important milestone of this course. Your pup will work on “touch” to help with fear of novel items and be introduced to mild distractions. Building from foundational skills, this course will help prepare you pup for the AKC S.T.A.R. puppy exam given at the end of the course. The AKC S.T.A.R puppy program is a great precursor for developing skills and behaviors required by the Canine Good Citizen Test (CGC). Your dog will also be introduced to agility where your dog is reinforcing sit, down, and come all while they are having fun and building confidence.

This is currently offered as 1-on-1 sessions with our trainer

Advanced Obedience  - 6 weeks 

If basic obedience isn’t quite enough, our advanced course is designed to develop and maintain good “manners” at home and around others. We work with you and your dog to refine basic skills like heel, come, down, and loose leash walking with the continual introduction of distractions. Your dog will also work on skills like bring and drop and learn to push buttons. This course is designed to support your pup’s preparation for the Canine Good Citizen test administered at the end of the course.
