*All classes require proof of rabies at the first class.
The AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy is an exciting program designed to get dog owners and their puppies off to a good start. The S.T.A.R. puppy program includes the following: basic puppy-raising information (jumping, house training, nipping...), basic obedience skills, how to better communicate and understand the language of dogs, and what is needed for responsible pet ownership. This program is designed for dogs less than 7 months in age who have not had any prior group experience.
Is your dog 7 months or older and never attended a basic obedience class? Then this is the group class for you! The Tweener class will cover all basic obedience skills (including how to infuse these skills as part of everyday life), how to better communicate with and understand the language of dogs, and what is needed for responsible pet ownership.
*This is not a reactive dog class. Each dog needs to be privately evaluated by the instructor.
Basic Obedience 1
Has your dog completed either the S.T.A.R. Puppy or Tweener Class and you're looking for the next level of training? Then this is the group class for you! The Basic Obedience 1 class takes the skills learned in the Star Puppy / Tweener Class to the next level. We revisit all the skills you have learned - increasing difficulty and reliability of performance. This fun class uses games which support teaching our dogs good manners while having fun at the same time!!
Basic Obedience 2
If you have completed Basic Obedience 1 and want to start preparing for the Canine Good Citizen class - then this is the group for you. This class focuses on enhancing your leash work skills, how to increase your dog's ability to follow cues with various levels of distractions, as well as how to start getting more behavior for less rewards. You will also learn how to teach your dog to listen to cues from a distance rather than just right in front of you.
