Puppy Kindergarten
for pups ages 10 weeks to 6 months with minimum 2 sets of vaccines
 drop-ins welcome $10.00

You will smile and laugh watching the puppies romp and tumble with each other.  They are burning off energy ( so they will nap when you get home and you will actually be able to get things done) while they are learning how to act around other dogs.  You will also get to hold and handle the other fluffy, chubby  puppies.  This will help your pup be more comfortable around strangers as an adult dog.  You will learn how to deal with the behaviors that are making you want to pull your hair out like house breaking, nipping, jumping, counter surfing,  begging and more.  This class is 30 minutes long.




BASIC OBEDIENCE
6 weeks : $110

This class is skills oriented. We will introduce the foundation commands that your dog needs to be a well behaved companion, including:  SIT, DOWN, STAND, STAY, COME,  LEASH MANNERS, LEAVE IT, and WAIT. We will focus on leadership skills for you and self control skills for your pooch. This class is 50 minutes long. First class is lecture dogs DO NOT attend.





CANINE GOOD CITIZEN
6 weeks : $110

This class is designed to get students prepared for the AKC's Canine Good Citizen 10 item test. The Canine Good Citizen (CGC) is an AKC certification program that demonstrates that the dog is well behaved in public. Dogs must have completed a BASIC OBEDIENCE class (or have been evaluated by instructor) The CGC test will be administered during the last class.  There is an additional fee paid to the AKC for the certificate.  This class is 50 minutes long.





CLICKER TRICKS TRAINING
6 weeks : $110

This style of training uses no corrections. A sound marker is used to tell the dog when he has done the correct action. This activity strengthens your bond with your dog, teaches him how to learn, improves his focus on you and keeps him mentally active. Mentally challenging your dog tires him out more than lots of physical exercise and a tired dog is a good dog. Authorities also believe that keeping an older dog mentally active can help prevent canine senile dementia. Teach your wild adolescent or your old dog some new tricks, such as: PLAY DEAD, ROLL OVER, HIGH FIVE, CRAWL, PUT AWAY YOUR TOYS, SAY YOUR PRAYERS, FIGURE 8's and LOTS MORE! You can work at your own pace and choose which behaviors you would like your dog to learn.  Students can repeat this class and expand their repetoire with entirely new tricks.  This class is 50 minutes long.
