ABOUT OUR TRAINING PROGRAM!

Puppies will enjoy this hour long class designed to enhance their body awareness, confidence and peak their interest in the new world around them!
Making Manners Fun
An introduction to basic life and obedience skills.
In this session, we focus on all those traditional obedience behaviors; loose leash walking, waiting at doors and polite greetings. Puppies will complete lots of games to enhance their understanding and accuracy.
Introduce your puppy to important life skills such as waiting at the door, loose leash walking and polite greetings! Teach basic manners skills all while making it fun!
Come When Called
Build a fast and reliable recall through motivating games!
"FLUFFY, COME!" If your puppy hears this, do they run towards you as fast as possible? Or do they take their time, and maybe even ignore you?
A reliable recall is one of the most important thing you can teach your puppy. Through lots of different games, we will learn how to understand and maintain a recall throughout your puppy's whole life!
Enhance your dog's everyday life with different puzzles.
There may be moments in your day that you just need a break. Or you might think to yourself "Why is my puppy still crazy and energetic, I JUST took them on a walk!" This class is all about how to help keep your puppy mentally stimulated and why that is so important!
Enhance your puppy's critical thinking skills while learning how to complete new tasks! Enrichment helps keep your puppy entertained and mentally stimulated.
Learn how to get focus from your puppy, and how to keep it!
Having your puppy focus on you is a tought thing to receive. The world is so exciting, and it may seem when you try to get your puppy's attention, that they don't hear you or are ignoring you.
Learn skills to help your puppy stay focused and disciplined during distracting moments. It is important that even when puppies see something they want to chase or go see, they can still focus back on their human.
