Puppy Class

Puppy Class

Prevent problems, and learn what to expect as your puppy grows and explores the world around him. We start with classical conditioning; letting them know that car rides are good! New places are fun! Learning is rewarding! Then we reinforce behaviours we want to see more often.

Puppy class is for dogs ages 3-5 months old at the date of the first class. 6 classes of one hour each will help set you and your dog up for success!

Emphasis on: socialization, basic obedience, effective communication, safety, and problem prevention techniques.

Some puppy to puppy interaction is included for them to learn appropriate behaviours, such as:

  • asking to play
  • when to leave others alone and
  • bite inhibition

We will use positive reinforcement to introduce obedience cues such as:

  • responding to their name
  • ‘come check in with me’
  • sit and
  • wait

We will also introduce them to new visual stimuli, sounds, smells and textures. Help your dog put their best paw forward by starting them off in a positive reinforcement puppy class!

*There is no test at the end of Puppy Class
