More about classes:
Puppy Preschool : For puppies between 8-17 weeks of age A strongly socially based program, it is during this critical learning window that great social experiences can help shape your dog for a lifetime. We address common puppy concerns: Housetraining, play biting, and very fundamental training. Confidence building and social skills are far more important than formal training at this time. Class meets on Saturdays at 9:00am for an hour. This is a 5 week session and the cost is $80.00. Attending more than 5 weeks is also an option for dogs within the age range. Requirements: Puppies need to be on schedule with vaccines and have a negative fecal exam.
Round One: This class is for all dogs over 4 months and covers basic manners: Sit, down, recall, take it/leave it, and loose leash walking are among the skills covered.
Round Two: For dogs that have achieved the Round One Skills, this class begins to add more distance and distraction as well as work on skills that will be necessary for Therapy Dog testing.
Agility for Fun: A great confidence builder, each week has a different course for you and your dog to practice and have fun. Dogs must have a reliable off leash recall and have solid Round One skills.
Beginning Clicker: Clicker Training is fun for both the dogs and their humans! Week one is for humans only. You will learn fundamental clicker skills and work on specific behaviors.
