Omaha’s Best Puppy Socialization Class

Sign up Now

If you have a new puppy and you want to make sure it turns into a calm and well behaved adult, you have come to the right place. We have developed what has become the best puppy socialization class in Omaha.

Our one hour weekly classes are great for puppies of every size and breed. We have a large and small breed version of each class to make sure its a fun and positive experience for your new little buddy  Our force free classes use positive dog training methods to motivate your puppy to behave and want to listen to you.

Our goal is to help socialize your new puppy, add in some basic obedience training and help you avoid most common puppy problems before they actually start. 

The first 30 minutes of each class are dedicated to training or tips to stop many common puppy problems like biting, nipping, jumping up, barking, etc. The last half of the class features socialization time. This helps your puppy develop social skills they will need for the rest of their life while also burning off energy. We promise your puppy will be tired after each class!

Our puppy school curriculum is based in Dog Psychology and positive reinforcement. We never use force, dominance or punishment based methods. They are unnecessary and completely inappropriate for puppies. Puppies are fun and so are our classes.

If your puppy needs help learning 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
