Class Description and Pricing
Cost: $200 for 5 weeks, $10 for drop-in puppy socials
Our puppy classes specifically focus on teaching bite inhibition (gentle jaws), socialization with other dogs and people (especially children, men and strangers), calming and handling, attention, off-leash 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 signal, off-leash control (around the home or on walks), yet promoting the continued use of food treats for classical conditioning - to teach dogs to thoroughly enjoy the company of people and other dogs.
Requirements: 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.
Dog Training I
For friendly dogs older than 19 weeks.
An excellent class for dogs that have never taken a class before or for dogs needing 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, walking on-leash and polite greetings.
Requirements: This class is for friendly dogs over 19 weeks. Proof of current vaccinations required.
