We work on potty training, crate training, handling and bite inhibition. We start behaviors like sit, down, stay, loose leash walking, and come. Management of other puppy behaviors (jumping up, barking) is discussed. We socialize and introduce puppies to different surfaces and objects. We discuss and demonstrate ear cleaning, brushing teeth and trimming toenails. Above all, having fun with your puppy and using positive training is our approach. Also includes Star Puppy Program for the AKC.
If puppy will be 4mo at start of class please enroll in Basic Manners!
Must have taken an obedience class previously, ie. Basic Manners or Puppy Pre-School!
Six Week Course
This class is for dogs and handlers that have already been through a beginner class such as "Basic Manners", or can "challenge" with approval of the Instructor. We will work on more difficult stays, heeling, being handled, distractions, and all the exercises used in the AKC "Canine Good Citizen" (CGC) test.
Let us help you prepare for showing in Rally Obedience or just have fun doing an obedience course with signs. This is a class where you have courses made up of signs with instructions on what to do. You will learn the "signs" that will aid you in doing a "course" set up by a judge. The course can be in any order. This is fun! You never know what the course will be, but you will be able to do it, because you will know the signs.
We also offer more advanced Rally and coursework classes if you have previous experience.
This class is for all dogs who are sound in body and mind. Dogs must not be aggressive towards other people or dogs and need to come when they are called. Start with a foundation class and you'll be hooked.
This is one of the most fun sports you will ever do. The dogs love it and so will you!
Novice/Intermediate and Advanced Agility classes are ongoing at the center weekly.
Call if you have previous agility experience and want to get in on one of the more advanced classes!
Do you know what the nose knows?? Nose Work is a BLAST and the dogs LOVE it!
We work on teaching the dog to enjoy finding specific odors. This class is a great confidence booster for those shy or somewhat timid dogs too. There are trials available to get titles, or you can just have fun with your dog. You can even teach him to find an object of yours!!
This class is for dogs who have been through our Basic Manners class or have an equivalent level of obedience.
Boredom busters, brain ticklers, and super fun team-building exercises to help cultivate and grow your relationship with your dog! Work together and watch your dogs build skills, using those beautiful minds and bodies to learn new things, and show off their smarts! Through the use of training games that include food puzzles, instability equipment, patterns, and sequences, you AND your dog will learn some new ways to engage your brains and keep things fresh and fun during training time.
Puppies 6 months and older, adult & senior dogs also welcome. Food and/or toy motivated dogs will really get a chance to shine in this class.
Please make sure you dog is comfortable in a group class setting, before registering for this class.
If you can't decide what to try, this class will give you an overview of four different dog sports, agility, rally, and nose work. Each week will focus on a different sport and you and your dog will get to try them all!
A great class if you are not yet sure what you want to do with your dog and would like to get your feet wet.
It is for anyone interested in trying something new, whether you wish to compete in the future or simply want to build a stronger relationship with your dog.
