These are our introductory classes, perfect for you and your companion to get started on your journey towards obedience. For the respect and safety of our clients, their dogs, and the importance of building a strong relationship with you dog while training, we do not allow nose to nose greetings, unless specified during training, or play of any kind, with the exception of our Puppy Pre-K. During Puppy Pre-K we do allow puppies to interact in order to learn proper and supervises social time at the conclusion of each class.
Our Puppy Pre-K program is a six week program that promotes all the essential training needs of your puppy. Such as crate and potty training, basic commands and leash skills as well as puppy play time! This class is for puppies 12 weeks through 6 months. Upon the completion of your six weeks, you will earn your AKC Puppy STAR certification. Each class is designed to focus on a topic with commands based around each discussion.
