Class Descriptions and Pricing
Play and Train: This is an on-leash, week to week class for friendly dogs. Games are used to reinforce basic commands such as sit, down, stand, stay and coming when called and walk on-leash. This class makes practice fun.
Cost: $10.00 per session. Pre-registration and proof of current vaccination is required.
Sirius Puppy 1: Puppies must be between 10-18 weeks old at the start date of class with 2 DHLPP vaccinations, one of which must have been given after 8 weeks of age and at least 5 days prior to start of class.
Our puppy class specifically focuses on teaching bite inhibition (gentle jaws), socialization with other dogs and people (especially children, men and strangers), calming and handling, attention, off-leash and household manners/obedience and the prevention of behavior and temperament problems. Special emphasis is paid to phasing out the need for food lures and rewards for reliable verbal and hand signals, off-leash control (around the home or on walks) yet promoting continued use of food for classical conditioning to teach dogs to thoroughly enjoy the company of people and other dogs.
Cost: $200.00 for five weeks of instruction. Registration is through www.siriuspup.com.
