Puppy Training!

The first 12 months of a dogs life are hugely important. If you want to get things right start with a Puppy Training Course to build a solid foundation for your pups future.

New puppy? These classes will put you and your pup on the same page. You’ll learn how to use positive reinforcement training to teach your dog how you want him to behave, and gentle but effective ways to discipline when he doesn’t. You’ll also learn how to avoid future behavior problems. And you’ll both have plenty of fun in the process!

Topics include: Basic manners, solving problems like jumping and chewing, and how to teach your dog sit, down, stay, come, and polite leadwalking.
