ABOUT THIS CLASS
What you do in your puppy's early months shapes so much of their life with you and your relationship with them. This class goes beyond teaching cues and the premise of obedience; it teaches you how dogs learn and teaches you how to set the foundation for your puppy to grow into a well-adjusted dog.
This is the most important class for you and your puppy
This beginner course focuses on training you and your dog to become a team. You'll learn the vital part of being a responsible owner and how your decisions now set the foundation for their future.
Though this class, you'll gain practical, useful skills and essential basic cues. These cues are the foundation of a solid, positive relationship between you and your dog and will help you get the most enjoyment out of life with your dog.
By the end of this course, in addition to understanding how to teach your dog in ways they will understand, you and your dog will be able to demonstrate various behaviours including:
Cooperative body handling
Proper socialization skills and how to experience new environments
This class is not appropriate for dogs who show reactivity, aggression, fear, or significant anxiety. Please contact our trainer if you are unsure whether this class is a good fit for your dog.

WHAT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE IN OUR PUPPY TRAINING?
We do things a little differently. And that starts with our trainers.
What's our secret? It's not just how we do it, it's who we have doing it! Our force-free trainers have studied extensively the latest in effective training, have extensive-hands-on experience, are certified through comprehensive training programs and are CPDT candidates.
What's particularly different, and that we're really proud of, is that we use force-free, fear-free, positive relational training methods. The positive style in which we train and teach is proven to be faster, more effective, and to nurture a stronger bond between you and your dog.
