Training is essential for getting you and your new puppy off on the right paw! Our puppy obedience course gets puppies going early on obedience and covers additional dog parenting topics, as opposed to focusing only on socialization and exposure. Puppy obedience is offered as a four-lesson course, with each course 30-40 minutes long, as well as 10-15 minutes spread out during the day as “homework” and a puppy can start training as early as eight weeks old. Bring your puppy and learn about:
- Name recognition
- Learning to pay attention
- Sit and down
- Brief sit stay and down stay
- Come when called
- Walk on a loose leash
- Potty and crate training
- Learning not to jump or mouth
- Dog and people socialization
- Environmental experiences and confidence building exercises
- How to act so your puppy knows how to act
- How dogs learn
- Equipment basics
- Preparing a multiple pet/species household
- Spay/Neutering FAQs
The course is taught by Paula Yunko, a certified pet dog trainer/dog obedience class instructor and Association of Professional Dog Trainers member with more than 15 years of experience working with many different breeds, species, and behavioral issues. Upon registering, you will be sent a waiver and will need to provide a copy of vet records.
