Our Puppy Training Classes use Positive Reinforcement Training methods and Enrichment Learning, as we recognize that puppies brains are still underdeveloped. They require training that makes them feel safe and calm through fun focus games and enrichment activities.
Classes are 1 hour long, held once a week for 6 weeks at Raising Canine’s Calgary NW location.
Class size is kept small (4 – 6 dogs) to prevent over-crowding and to ensure optimum learning.
Puppies Age: Must be under 6 months old and can start as soon as had 2nd round of vaccinations, usually at 11 – 12 weeks old.
Puppy Training Classes ARE NOT for pups that are already demonstrating reactive behaviour (excessive barking, lunging, growling when near other dogs and/or people). If you do register your reactive puppy for Puppy Training Classes, and then she demonstrates reactive behaviour in class, for the sake of your pup’s emotional well-being, you will be asked to take your puppy home where she feels safe and is no longer in a situation where she is “practicing” reactive behaviour.
As we care about your puppy’s mental health, we want to help you with your puppy’s reactive behaviour, so we will then offer you to attend the Reactive Dog Recovery Program (RDRP) and/or Private Sessions (PS) by transferring the full funds you paid for Puppy Training Classes toward this.
Should you make the decision not to attend RDRP or PS, we will then refund you the amount paid, minus $50 cancellation fee.
