.

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.

Our monthly puppy socialization classes are great for puppies of every size and breed. These weekly one hour classes are separated by age and size to ensure that 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 stop 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.

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 and puppies.

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
