Puppy 101

Classes Run Every Tuesday at 5:45 pm 

Classes are 45 minutes long

Registration & Payment are Required to Secure your Spot

5 week course for all puppies from 12 weeks (or as soon

as your puppy has had its 2nd set of vaccines) 

up to a maximum age of 18 weeks.

This is NOT a formal obedience class. We strongly recommend Novice Obedience training afterwards and we offer a 10% discount if you continue within a month of completing puppy class.

The focus in Puppy 101 will be on teach you how to properly socialize your new puppy so that it is comfortable around the various things it will encounter in its environment.

You will also learn how to teach your puppy HOW TO LEARN using food lures to shape basic body positions and how to teach your puppy how to maintain the position by teaching the release command. You will learn how to engage your puppy even in distractions and we will introduce the recall as well.

Structured play time will happen on leash at the end of each class.

You will also learn how to:

  • Deal with Nipping and Biting

  • House Train your new pet

  • Crate Train (the crate must never be used for punishment)

  • Prevent Chewing

  • Which Toys are the Safest & Which Toys to Avoid

  • How to Play and NOT to Play with your Puppy

Puppies under 16 weeks of age must be on a harness (regular harness, NOT an 'Easy Walk Harness that attaches to the front) and a 6' leash is required. Larger breed dogs may go on a training collar earlier – we will advise you on this.

We sell a variety of items you will need at our facility. We do have harnesses to fit most puppy breeds, except for the very small breeds. Please contact us to book an appointment for a fitting.
