Therapy Dog

(5 months and younger)  This is a great beginner’s class to help puppies learn the basic skills necessary to live happily and productively in your home. Classes are held indoors/outdoors because exposing your puppy to different environments builds confidence. This class will cover basic puppy problems, such as housebreaking, chewing, biting, jumping, socialization and any specific problems you may be having with your puppy.  We do limit the number of students to six dogs for the six-week session. Your dog will be eligible to take the AKC Star Puppy Exam.  You have 8 weeks to use your 6 week session. This is an open enrollment class, so you do not wait to start training your puppy.

Tuesday Nights 6:00 p.m. – 6: 50 p.m.

Wednesday Nights 5:00 p.m. – 5:50 p.m.

 

(6 months and older) This is an open enrollment class, so you do not have to wait to start training. We will focus on getting your dogs attention, self-control, leash walking, recall and other basic manners. Great first class for newly adopted or just new to training teenage dog or the adult dog. Much more challenging though, is to ensure that your dog remains socialized and friendly to other dogs and people, and continues to pay heed to your instructions while working through adolescence and adulthood. Exercises include, settle down, behavior issues, and on-leash walking and leave it from moving things. To graduate you and your dog must be able to do a 1-minute sit/stay and a 3-minute/down stay.
