By: David Codr

Published Date: February 1, 2017

Nebraska’s only private Dog Behaviorist is now offering the top Puppy Socialization classes in Omaha on Tuesday nights at Dogtopia (14485 West Center Road in Omaha – West of Oakview Mall, next to Shopko)

After getting his own puppy Quest, Nebraska’s only Dog Behaviorist David Codr from Dog Gone Problems signed his puppy up for what he was told was the best puppy class in the metro.

What he found was a class that was using bad techniques, a very uninterested teacher and a class that actually taught the puppy bad habits.

David decided he could do much better, and the positive feedback has been overwhelming. He set up a his own Puppy School with a Puppy Socialization curriculum that features Dog Psychology, positive reinforcement, modern training methods and personalized, individual attention and instruction to teach puppies basic obedience as well as help curb unwanted behaviors;

  • Stop nipping
  • Stop jumping up
  • Stop mouthing
  • Stop chewing inappropriate items
  • Potty training / stop accidents in the house
  • Teaching the puppy to calm itself and settle down
  • Kennel training / crate training
  • Basic obedience (Teaching the pup to sit, lay down, come)
  • Intermediate puppy training; loose leash training / teaching the heel
  • Intermediate puppy training; teaching your pup to stay.
  • Intermediate puppy training; Emergency recall (emergency come).
  • Advanced puppy training; the Heel aka Loose leash training

These puppy school classes are small to ensure we can give you and your puppy plenty of personal help and attention to ensure you get the most out of the class.
