Puppy Manners Part 1: This 6-week program is for puppies between 10 and 20 weeks old at the start of class. Early training is critical to the development and socialization of your new puppy. This course is designed to help you and your puppy start off on the right paw. Included in this course:

  • socialization with other puppies and people
  • teaching good bite inhibition
  • housetraining basics
  • crate training
  • acclimating your puppy to being gently handled all over his/her body
  • teaching basic household manners
  • learning the fundamentals of obedience training including how dogs learn by association and by consequence and the basics of positive reinforcement training
  • helping you determine what motivates your puppy and how to use that effectively to train the behaviors you want

Your puppy will also learn behaviors such as sit, down, stay, come, watch, wait at doors, greet people nicely, leave forbidden items, and walk on a loose leash. Playtime with the other puppies is included each class. The goal is to have a well-socialized and well-mannered puppy at home and when out in public.

This program is for puppies between 10 and 20 weeks old at the start of class. The first class is an orientation for humans only.

Puppy Manners Part 2:  This 6-week program is for puppies that have completed our Puppy Manners or similar course and know the basics such as sit, down, stay, and come. It is designed for puppies that are ready to work the basics in much harder situations. This course is for those wanting to:

  • continue socializing your puppy with other friendly puppies and humans
  • further strengthen your relationship and communication with your puppy
  • help your puppy gain fluency in the basic skills you learned in the Puppy Manners course and take these to the next level by incorporating them into more complex behaviors
  • take it on the road and practice all the behaviors in the real world and in every day life situations

Your puppy will learn behaviors such as sit and down with real life distractions; longer sit and down stays; “come” in the real world; go to their “place”; basic heeling; leaving things alone while out for a walk; proper etiquette for meeting and playing with dogs; beginning off leash work; some fun tricks; and will continue to work on good manners.
