Puppy Playhouse – Beginning Saturday, January 27, 2018

Duration: 5 classes

Puppies love to play and learn. Their minds are hungry to explore new things and this is a great opportunity for you to start teaching your puppy a few things in a fun and informal class.

Your puppy will learn:

  • Sit and down
  • Come when called
  • Place (go to…)
  • Respond to his name
  • Socializing in a safe and controlled environment

In addition, we will cover house breaking, chewing, biting, and any other issues brought up in class. This Puppy Playhouse runs for 5 one-hour sessions that will prepare your puppy for the next phase of his training.

Upon completing this training package, your dog will receive a certificate of graduation from the Puppy Playhouse training program.

Note: Class size is limited, therefore, early registration is recommended.

 


Good Dog! Foundations – Beginning Saturday, January 27, 2018

Duration: 6 classes

Good Dog! Foundations is suited for those canines, 5 months old or older, that would like to improve upon their manners in a social setting. Our training is done outdoors in a park setting where you will focus on teaching your dog to pay attention to you and to respond to your commands around greater levels of distractions. The Good Dog! Foundations group class is enjoyed over the course of 6 weeks.

The following 7 obedience commands will be introduced in this class:

  • Loose leash walking (let’s go)
  • Sit and down
  • Stay
  • Come when called
  • Attention to name (watch me)
  • Introduction to heel

Upon completing this training package, your dog will receive a certificate of graduation from the Good Dog! Foundations training program.

Note: Classes are limited in size to allow for more personal attention and guidance from your trainer. This will ensure you master the techniques so that both you and your dog achieve your goals. Therefore, early registration is recommended.

 


Good Dog! Advanced – TBA

Duration: 4 Classes

  • Does your dog have the basics down, but still has trouble with maintaining a stay around distractions?
  • Are you still struggling with your dog pulling on the leash when he gets excited?
  • Would you like to pass by other dogs without your dog causing a scene?

This class is for those who have done some basic training in which your dog now knows sit, down, stay, walking nicely on-leash, but who would like to continue the practice to improve on-leash manners in public. In this class, your dog will work on maintaining stays around distractions, walking by distractions, such as other dogs,  in a calm manner, and forming a habit of sitting whenever you stop walking.

Enjoy taking your dog out with you to public areas and not feeling frustrated or embarrassed by his behaviour. Stop avoiding distraction areas and start embracing them for the learning opportunity they provide for you and your dog. Call or email me today to find out if this class is right for you.

Upon completing this training package, your dog will receive a certificate of graduation from the Good Dog! Advanced training program.

Note: Classes are limited in size to allow for more personal attention and guidance from your trainer. This will ensure you master the techniques so that both you and your dog achieve your goals. Therefore, early registration is recommended.
