Omaha’s Best Puppy Socialization Class; Information and Sign Up

By: David Codr

Published Date: February 1, 2017

Nebraska’s only private Dog Behaviorist and Puppy class Instructors are hosting the top Puppy Socialization classes in Omaha at three convenient locations.

Dogtopia (14485 West Center Road in Omaha – West of Oakview Mall, next to Shopko).
The Paw Spa Pet Resort (1804 N 168th Street – Southwest corner of 168th and Blondo Streets)
That Dog Wash (1401 Jackson Street – Southwest Corner of 14th and Jackson Streets)

Classes are separated by age and size to ensure that its a fun and positive experience for your new little buddy. Half of each one hour class is devoted to basic training and for the last 30 minutes we help your puppy learn social skills while romping around with the other puppies in each class.

This puppy school curriculum is based in Dog Psychology and positive reinforcement. We will show you how to communicate what you do (and don’t) want from your puppy in a way it understands and respects. These techniques have been honed by the Dog Gone Problems staff while training thousands of Omaha area dogs.

Classes are limited in size to ensure you get personal attention and your puppy isn’t overwhelmed. Puppy learning and play should be fun experiences. We have crafted classes to show you how to easily educate and train your puppy, leaving it feeling confident, satisfied and well exercised.

If your puppy needs help with any of the following, our classes can show you how to do so quickly and easily:

  • Stop nipping
  • Stop jumping up
  • Learn the leave it exercise
  • Learn to drop things on command
  • Stop mouthing
  • Stop chewing inappropriate items
  • Potty training / stop accidents in the house
  • Teaching your puppy to focus on you on command
  • Teaching the puppy to calm itself and settle down
  • Kennel training / crate training
  • Basic obedience (Teaching the pup to sit, lay down, sit up and stand)
  • Intermediate puppy training; training your puppy to come
