Puppy Class Testimonial From One of Our 5 Star Google Reviews

“My puppy Oreo recently graduated from the puppy high school class. We took all three levels of classes offered and would recommend to any person who needs puppy training. I love the fact that they use positive reinforcement. My pup went from being wild and jumping at everybody to a nice well behaved puppy.”

– Brad Maxwell

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 start. Don’t worry, our classes will still help if your puppy has already started doing things you don’t like.

For people who want to really get a jump start on puppy raising, we offer a Puppy Head Start program. Our Head Start program sends a puppy class instructor to your home before, or just as classes start. This allows us to give you a fully customized plan for success; sharing tips and secrets that make raising a puppy MUCH easier by starting off right from the jump.

If you have a puppy who is fearful around other puppies and dogs, we have a special Fearful Puppy Matchmaking service that was created to help shy and fearful puppies build confidence and social skills.  If your puppy is scared, anxious or fearful around other pups, we recommend that class first.

Each one of our standard puppy classes incudes multiple lessons along with tips to stop common puppy behavior problems like potty training, chewing, nipping, mouthing, jumping up, barking, stealing, not listening, refusing to come when called, basic obedience, etc. After the lessons and tips, we let the puppies play and socialize with one another to develop social skills, develop bite inhibition and burn off some of that puppy energy!

Early socialization is crucial in puppy development as a puppy learns more in an hour of play time than a week of formal training with humans. This socialization helps your puppy develop healthy (non aggressive) social skills, boosts their confidence and wears them out. We promise your puppy will be good and tired after each class.

Our three separate puppy classes are designed to be taken one after the other. All classes run four weeks and each class meets for one hour each week:

Puppy Kindergarden (Puppy 101) – Class size is limited to 7 puppies – $130
