Our puppy training classes are geared to help you and your family raise a happy, healthy, well trained dog!
You will learn much more than just how to teach your pup basic obedience. You will learn that, but more importantly, you will learn how to teach your puppy how to socialize with other dogs using ‘appropriate canine play behaviour’. Your pups will learn manners when around both other canines and people, and will learn to do this while having fun.
You’ll also learn canine body language so you know how to avoid your dog being in dog fights (either starting or being the victim of a fight). As well, you’ll learn how to recognize when your dog is extremely anxious, stressed, and fearful, which can possibly lead your dog to becoming ‘reactive’. Basically you’ll learn a sound basis of what your pup is trying to communicate to you.
Also included is puppy nutrition, safety, general health, and how to prevent unwanted behaviours such as nipping, chewing, barking, jumping up, house training, and crate training.
And of course, you will learn how to reliably train your pup, with humane techniques, to sit, down, stay, come when called, loose leash walking, on your spot, and several fun focus games.
On the last day of classes, you and your pup, will engage in a graduation party by playing games with all the other pups and their humans, by using the commands everyone has learned. Finally, the wee fur babes, get grad hats to wear for photos.
