BEGINNER

(5 months and older with no previous training)

While  basic  obedience  skills  such  as  Sit,  Down,  Stay,  Come  When  Called  (CWC)  and  Heel  will  be  taught  (or  reinforced),  we  will  ultimately  focus  on  establishing  good  manners  and  setting  your  dog  up  for  success.    Topics  will include  polite  greetings,  understanding  body  language,  barking  and  walking  on  leash.    We  will  also  cover  how  dogs  learn,  stages  of  training  and  the  importance  of  force-free  training.

PUPPY

(4 months and younger with no previous training)

Focus  will  be  on  establishing  a  solid relationship  with your puppy  as  well  as  learning  basic  obedience  skills  such  as  Sit,Down,  Stay and Come  When  Called  (CWC).  Beyond  these  skills  we  will  cover socialization,  housebreaking,  understanding  body  language,  confidence  building,  responsible  dog  ownership  and  beginning leash  handling.

INTERMEDIATE

(6 months and older, previous training required)

This class will take your dog’s basic manners to the next level as we trouble shoot “selective  hearing” to improve overall response rate and introduce distractions to help you understand  how it affects behavior and how to overcome it. We will incorporate the use of basic tricks and  dog sports into  our training routine and prepare you and your dog for the Canine Good Citizen test.
