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 10-16 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 7 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.

Sirius Puppy 2:  This class is for graduates of SIRIUS PUPPY 1 who are under 8 months.  Proof of rabies vaccine is required.

Early puppy training is as easy as it is enjoyable.  Much more challenging, though is to ensure that your puppy maintains bite inhibition, remains social and friendly to other dogs and people, and continues to pay heed to your instructions, while working through adolescence.   Training focuses on proofing verbal control without the need for food lures or rewards or any other training tools.  Exercises include distance sits in play (for the home, yard, dog park and off-leash walks), settle down, rock-solid stays, and both off-leash and on-leash walking and heeling.  PUPPY 2 will help you teach your adolescent puppy to be calm, attentive and responsive and to respond quickly, willingly and happily, especially when distracted, off-leash and at a distance.

Cost: $200.00 for five weeks of instructions.  Registration is through www.siriuspup.com.

Sirius Courteous Canine: This class is for friendly dogs over 17 weeks.  Proof of current vaccinations required.

This is an excellent class for dogs that have never taken a class before or for dogs who need to brush up on rusty obedience skills.  Reward training techniques make training adolescent and adult dogs a peaceful and enjoyable experience.  Initial exercises focus on calming, settling-down and regaining attention to facilitate teaching basic manners-sit, down, stand, stay, walk on-leash and polite greeting.

Cost: $200.00 for five weeks of instruction.  Registration is through www.siriuspup.com.
