Class Descriptions:

Puppy Playtime/Trick Class: For all breeds/Ages 3 months to 2 years or any dogs whom have been “Grandfathered in” . Teach your pups fun tricks to perform….then let them off leash to play and socialize with other pups. It is imperative that dogs learn proper manners around other dogs at an early age. This can be helpful as they grow and encounter strange dogs. Pups that have displayed aggression towards other dogs are kindly asked to set up a private appointment with me and not take this class.

Puppy Class/Basic Obedience 101: For all breeds/Ages 3 months to 2 years. Instruction on housebreaking and crate training, the importance of socialization, dealing with unwanted puppy behaviors such as jumping, chewing & nipping, & introduction to simple commands such as come, sit, stay, leash manners & much more!

Come to me and Walk this way: For all breeds/ Ages 6 months and up. The next level for dogs that have taken puppy classes or basic obedience 101. We will continue education for your dogs by fine tuning already known skills and master two things that each dog owner needs most! Recall, the “come” or “here” command will be our focus in distracted environments. This could save their lives someday. We will also master walking on leash around distractions and other dogs, get your walking partner under control.

Agility 1: Beginner: Intro to jumps, weave poles, tunnels, tire, & more!

AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC): This class will prep your dogs and help them to pass the CGC test. It will include, walking your dog through crowds, sit/down/and stay on your command. Accepting friendly strangers (people and other dogs) . We will teach your dog to sit while being pet by a stranger. Come when called. How to react when you walk away from them.

AKC Community Canine ( Advanced Canine Good Citizen): This class is for dogs who have passed the AKC Canine Good Citizen Program. The dogs that pass the Community Test will earn a “CGCA” title. This class prepares your dog to perform for you in real situations like classes and your community with real distractions.  They are taught to focus on you no matter what is going on around them.

Therapy Dog Preparation Class: This class is strictly geared toward teaching your dog the skills they will need to pass a Therapy Dog Test.
